Last night Candice Glover became the first female contestant to win American Idol since Jordin Sparks took home the title back in 2007. (Cool coincidence: Remember how Jordin told us that she was rooting for Candice to win Season 12?!)
The 23-year-old vocal powerhouse looked pretty shocked when Ryan Seacrest read the results during last night's finale.
"I can't even, oh my God," Candice said. "Three years!" (She had initially tried out for the show back in Season 9 and in Season 11.)
Backstage Candice described the crazy moment that she was crowned winner: "I don't remember him saying my name. I do remember confetti getting in my mouth."
"I always knew for some reason that it would happen if I kept going," she added.
Watch Candice perform her new single "I Am Beautiful" below, and let us know how you feel about her as your Season 12 winner in the comments!
