American Idol

Candice Glover won "American Idol" Season 12 over Kree Harrison as Psy, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin performed.


Haley Johnson's 'American Idol' song 'bit of a nightmare'

Haley Johnson next on "American Idol," doing the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams." Bit pitchy and she's not quite with the music, but keeps you listening.

She's really trying, and has a big voice, no doubt, but just not all there in the end.

Jennifer Lopez praises her "great skills" vocally, even as she's not crazy about the song or the interpretation. Randy Jackson calls it "a bit of a nightmare for me, instead of a dream." Says she was pitchy, and not spot on.
