American Idol

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

Kree Harrison's vocals 'beautiful and pure,' Lazaro Arbos can't match on 'American Idol'

Lazaro Arbos next on "American Idol," doing Robbie Williams' "Angels." Hard to understand him because he keeps swallowing the words and singing too low -- but somehow it works with the song, carries with it some drama. 

Keith Urban says the women are so "crazy good" tonight and it's hard for him to match up. Nicki Minaj just says, "what he said."

Randy Jackson thought it was "slightly better" than his first song of the night but can't match up against the women. Mariah Carey says it's "better range" than before but still not up to the caliber of the competition.

Kree Harrison doing Kris Kristofferson's "Help Me Make It Through the Night." Good song with a lot of history; she's singing it with a lot of emotion in her voice. Almost too plain; for whatever reason it's not grabbing me.

Minaj says you can sing anything and make us like it, "you are something very special to this competition." Jackson calls her a "natural natural," likes her mix of emotion and "ease."

Carey says, "that's how the song should be sung." Urban calls her "everything beautiful and pure about country music."
