american idol season 12 winner candice glover kree harrison Who won 'American Idol' Season 12? Candice Glover or Kree Harrison?After two hours of performances and shenanigans during the “American Idol” Season 12 finale, Candice Glover was crowned the winner of the singing competition show. She’s the first female winner since Season 6, when Jordin Sparks won.

It’s particularly sweet because this was Glover’s third time auditioning for the show and she clearly is an amazing singer. Her single is “I Am Beautiful,” do you think it’ll be a big hit? We’ll confess to not liking it as much as Kree’s single, “All Cried Out.”

Following her win, Candice had hugs from all of her fellow Top 10 finalists — and then some kind of throwback microphone trophy. But then she gives an emotional performance of her single, it’s lovely.

However, Kree should not be down. This year, all the Top 5 could go on to have great careers. They are all spectacular and congrats to all of them.

What say you, “Idol” fans? Did the right woman win?
