You KNOW you’ve done well when Mariah Carey covers you in glitter!
Helloooo, Mizz Glitter herself celebrating you with a glitter bomb?
That’s a sign you’ve made it!
And one of the American Idol contestants did just that last night with what was called “one of the greatest performances in the history of 12 years of American Idol” by Randy Jackson.
Candice Glover brought down the house with her performance of The Cure’s Love Song which clearly blew Mariah away and compelled her to show some glittery love (above)!
And Candice KNOWS that little bit of glitter is more than just some sparkle as she revealed:
“[The glitter] was in this little box and [after the show], she gave me the box. She was like, 'This is what I carried it in, dah-ling.' I was like, uh, ok. But if Mariah Carey throws glitter at you, it must be something good!"
But that wasn’t all that went on last night…
The ladiez held onto the competition as the final guy, Lazaro Arbos, struggled to get through another episode.
After performing Close to You by The Carpenters, Randy deemed it “the worst performance you've ever had on the show.”
And that wasn’t even the harshest comment because Nicki Minaj said:
“Let’s pretend I gave you my comment, because honey child, we will be here till tomorrow!”
He might be able to avoid elimination as Janelle Arthur also had a rough go this week as the judges called her performance “lackluster” and “boring.”
So who do YOU think will be eliminated?!
