On Thursday night’s American Idol results show, we bid a fond farewell to Lazaro Arbos leaving an all female top five. So who is going to make it to the finale? While we can’t be certain who will duke it out for the title, rumor has it Idol producers know who they’d like to see in the finale and that’s Candice Glover and Amber Holcomb. Take the jump for more details.
According to Hollywood Life, a source, who chose to remain anonymous, said Idol producers had an ulterior motive when they paired Glover and Holcomb together during Thursday night’s results show group performance. And that was so America could see them sing together and possibly get the hint that these two were their pick for the finale. “There was a reason they put Candice and Amber together on the show Thursday, because they want to show America that these are the two they want in the finale,” the source said.
In fact, “The producers are doing everything they can in their power to get a finale that consists of Amber and Candice,” the source said, “They want to change the Idol mold that has consisted of a white guy winning, so nothing would be better in their eyes than to have two African American women in the finale.”
Now wait a minute…Since the American people vote to decide who stays in the competition and who goes home; that leaves producers with only one thing in their power…song choice, right? So if they are going to do ‘everything they can in their power’ to ensure Candice and Amber make it to the finale, does that mean they will make poor song choices for Kree, Angie, and Janelle so they won’t perform as well? We can’t be certain but in the end…may the best singer win!
Tell us what you think. Would you like to see Glover and Holcomb duke it out in the season finale? Or would you rather see a different pairing? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments section and tell us all about it.
