Third time was a charm for the 23-year-old South Carolina native. She auditioned two seasons prior but was eliminated both times.
One of the highlights of the finale show was her awe-inspiring debut with former “Idol” contestant Jennifer Hudson. The ladies brought the judges to their feet with thier rendition of “Inseparable” by Natalie Cole.
We send big congratulations to Miss. Candice for her well-deserved win. She was without a doubt the strongest vocalist of the season.
Let’s take a look back her best performances. Trust us, they will give you chills.
