American Idol Season 12 Finale Recap: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Finalists [Updated]

american-idol-candice-kree-winner“Either way, we’re gonna celebrate tonight.”

With six simple words, Kree Harrison summed up what most American Idol fans have been feeling for the last fortnight. I mean, seriously, once we got down to what Loleatta Holloway once referred to as “the reeeeeallll nitty gritty” of the competition — by which I mean a righteous Top 3 of  Candice Glover, Kree and third-place finisher Angie Miller — how could you really be too upset about where the chips ended up falling?

Oh sure, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe stacked the Top 20 deck with powerhouse ladies and guys with questionable voter appeal in his effort to get a female winner. But as the kind of lunatic who’s watched every single episode of Idol since Kelly Clarkson was just a Texas waitress in a dress she made out of an old pair of jeans, I’d go so far as to say any single member of the Season 12 Top 5 would’ve been a worthy addition to the undeniably awesome list of the franchise’s champions: Kelly, Ruben, Fantasia, Carrie, Taylor, Jordin, David, Kris, Lee, Scotty and Phillip. From where I sit, that’s a pretty darn good season.

Sure, that’s easy for me to say in retrospect since my No. 1 and No. 2 favorite contestants made it all the way to the final round. Candice had a hold on my heart from her Season 11 Vegas Round trio with Deandre Brackensick and Jessica Sanchez, then confirmed my obsession with her torrid “Syrup & Honey” Season 12 audition, her Group Round “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!),” and an incredible string of live performances that stacks up pretty well against any singer who’s ever taken the Idol stage: “Ordinary People,” “I’m Goin’ Down,” “I (Who Have Nothing),” “Come Together,” “Don’t Make Me Over,” “Lovesong,” “Straight Up” “When I Was Your Man,” “You’ve Changed,” “Next to Me,” “Somewhere,” “I Am Beautiful,” and “I (Who Have Nothing)” a capella reprisal. #POW (That was for you, Mariah.)

Kree Harrison’s Greatest Season 12 Hits was a damn fine compliation, too, starting with her Hollywood solo on “Stars,” and continuing with “Up to the Mountain (MLK Song),” “Stronger,” “Evidence,” “Crying,” “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” “See You Again,” “Here Comes Goodbye,” “All Cried Out,” and her “Up to the Mountain” reprisal.

Of course, just because we wound up with two incredible finalists isn’t to say Season 12 didn’t have its deep, deep valleys. Too much focus on the judges and the kind of petty slapfights that — at least in Casa Slezak — would result in a two-minute time out in the Naughty Chair. Too little innovation and not enough creativity in choosing fresh, exciting themes to challenge (but still bring out the best) in the contestants. Too many songs we’ve heard a dozen times before, too much micromanagement of the outcome, not enough “Contestant’s Choice,” and…oh LET ME QUIT RANTING AND GET TO THE RECAP.

Much like Season 12 itself, tonight’s two-plus-hour finale had its own highs (Janelle, Angie and Candice’s respective duets) and its baffling low points (a Mariah “hologram” performance; J.Lo squeaking the same song she’s released for six straight years; Aretha performing via…FaceTime? Skype? Wha?; Lazaro snapping his gum and trying to steal focus from the winner’s celebratory moment). So let’s break it all the way down (in chronological order)…

* After 12 seasons of Idol, I’m aware that it’s a tough task to sound-mix a big group number, but the way the backing track steamrolled the Top 10 singing “Glad You Came” made the performance feel as organic as a gallon of melted Velveeta (in a Styrofoam container). Why not just give the dancers the night off, have the finalists sit on stools and deliver a stripped-down version where we could hear their individual voices? Then again, witnessing Curtis Finch “shoot the peacock” while absolutely no sound came out of his mic, perhaps it was a blessing in disguise?

* It was nice how Mariah and Nicki’s season-long rivalry ended tonight with a game of “Whose Dress/Shoes Combo Will Make for a More Treacherous Walk From Backstage and to the Judges’ Table?” Somewhere, Gloria Steinem is shaking her head, dahhhling.

* I’m gonna come right out and say it: somewhere in the past three weeks, Janelle Arthur transformed herself from a really excellent American Idol finalist into a budding superstar. Her duet with The Band Perry on “Done” — damn, I am downloading that jam first thing tomorrow — was raucous, delightful, beautifully sung, fiercely choreographed/hair-eographed and downright incredible. I’m not sure if those firepots were meant to go off during the performance or if Janelle just activated ’em with all the heat of her performance. Major label execs: Sign this gal! (And if you have any doubts, listen to her original song “Young and Reckless,” then sign her.)

* I’ll admit I guffawed four or five times during the pre-taped comedy package about the Season 12 ladies sabotaging their male counterparts. Funniest bit: Janelle gleefully tampering with Lazaro’s sheet music so he’d miss the key change on “Close to You.” The final reveal of Jordin Sparks as the mastermind — pointing out that her task was made easier by the fact that none of the guys played guitar, and then reminding said dudes that “Idol leftovers” have been doing well on The Voice — was the whipped cream on the Frappuccino.

* I know the Top 5 guys got a lot of flack for their general lack of luster in Season 12, but alas, their work on that Frankie Valli medley didn’t do much to turn that perception around. Also, was it me or did it sound like a backing track kicked in and the guys’ mics got switched off once the 79-year-old legend took the stage and took over lead-vocal duty? Le sigh.

* Okay, let’s have an honest chat about Mariah Carey’s “performance.” I know it got pre-taped on Wednesday night. And I know some of her fans have taken to Twitter to say that she really and truly sang her medley of hits and that the producers of the show just did a bad job of “dubbing”/”cutting” the various shots and whatnot. But honestly, however you slice it, this was a failure of epic proportions. As Mariah stood immobilized by her long white gown, and cameras carefully cut to all of her most flattering angles, we heard what sounded like disembodied snippets of her greatest hits get carelessly patched together. Meanwhile, the Lady Carey’s mouth moved out of sync with the music, as if a film-school student had dubbed the performance in Korean, then Hebrew, then French and then (hastily) back into English. If she’d performed this on the Holodeck of the Enterprise, it would have somehow made sense, maybe? But seeing how this was her final act in a high-paying gig that had her judging the vocals, musicality and performance style of young singers who clearly look up to her, would it have been too much to ask for the woman to pick up a mic during the actual live telecast and simply sing? Hashtag: Lame. *And yes, I am holding her to a ridiculously high standard. SHE’S MARIAH FREAKIN’ CAREY!

* Anyone else find it slightly odd that, a mere week after Candice covered “Next to Me” on Top 3 performance night, that the producers had Amber Holcomb reprise it for the finale as a duet with the show’s new spirit animal Emeli Sandé? The gals sounded really solid together, but if I’m being honest, Amber looked reluctant to dig deep and connect with her major-label sparring partner. And that kinda bummed me out.

* Psy sang “Gentleman,” though I like his shtick better when he’s backed by dancing pistachios. (What? I’m trying to be nice for once.) Might’ve helped if he’d bothered to raise the microphone up to his lips every once in a while, though, no?

* Keith Urban broke out his new single “Little Bit of Everything.” And while it’s not exactly a game-changing kind of ditty, I love the fact that dude always comes off like he’d have just as much fun playing for some fireflies and junebugs next to some bonfire embers in the backyard as he does playing for an audience of (hopefully?) 15 million.

candice-glover-jennifer-hudson* I injured my hand pounding the side of my armchair (while whooping like an idiot) for the duration of Candice’s duet with Jennifer Hudson on “Inseparable.” (Can this collaboration PLEEEEEEASE be on Candice’s debut CD?) I didn’t even take notes while it happened because I threw my pen about 11 seconds in, and was not going to take my eyes off the screen anyhow. Candice’s clarity, her power, her phrasing, her internalization of the lyrics! J.Hud’s vibrato, her bombast, her grit, and her megawatt energy! You combine these things and it’s just…I mean…I don’t have the right superlatives to take you there. You just need to go to YouTube and watch it. But suffice to say when Nicki and Randy are waving their arms and having a musicgasm (gross, but true) in unison, that we’ve reached some God-just-brushed-your-arm-level SANGING.

angie-miller-adam-lambert* If that wasn’t enough for you, how about Angie, at the piano, lilting along to “Titanium,” and then the camera pans and there’s ADAM LAMBERT!? I loved the aching restraint the duo showed as they slowed David Guetta and Sia’s high-octane dance hit into an inspirational ballad. Adam, who we know from “Slow Ride” (take it EEE-ZAY!) is a generous duet partner, really allowed Angie to set the tone and grab more than her share of the juicy parts of “Titanium” — as it should be considering this is Angie’s season, y’know? (I did love when both of ’em unleashed in the final moments, though…good stuff.)

* Adam proved just as gracious when he stepped aside so Angie could share the stage with her idol Jessie J., who hopped across the pond from London for a last-minute throw-down with the gal who covered her four times this season. (I hope Angie gets a small percentage of Jessie’s 2013 U.S. sales, yes?) Their rendition of “Domino” was a frothy confection with spot-on vocals and a bit of amped-up drama at the ending. Even better for Angie? Jessie admitting that her appearance had prevented Angie from performing her debut single “You Set Me Free,” and agreeing to do a show with her in London this summer as a consolation prize. Um, who says finishing third is such a bad thing?

* Kree’s duet with Keith on “Where the Blacktop Ends” seemed, well, a little less well thought-out than Angie, Kree Candice and Janelle’s collaborations, perhaps? I mean, girlfriend was so fab all season, but never really gave any indication that an uptempo, beers-on-the-bar jam was her cup of mocha chocolata ya ya. Why couldn’t Uncle Nigel have brought in Bonnie Raitt or Susan Tedeschi or Carrie Underwood or Wynonna for Kreedom? Ah well, it was still a solid effort, even if Kree’s vocals seemed to get a tad lost in the mix.

* Idol said a formal farewell to Randy Jackson. And here, I say a formal good riddance! (That one was for Haley Reinhart, dawg! #NeverEverForget)

Aretha-Franklin-Idol* Um, so the legendary Aretha Franklin doesn’t like to fly. And so she appeared via satellite from New York to sing a medley of hits — did I mention I despise medleys, even when they are made up of some of the greatest soul songs ever? Meanwhile, the Top 5 girls — the people most responsible for the ad revenue Fox raked in on the show from January to May — stood underneath said screen and acted as background singers whose mics were set to “low.” (Maybe this is how Aretha ensures no up-and-coming divas make eye contact with her?) How this idea made its way from some associate producer’s brainstorming pitch to actualized seven-minute segment is as patently ridiculous as the sight of Devin Velez in leopard stretch pants with a “Nicki Minaj booty.”

* J.Lo showed off her world-class backside lip-sync skills on the same god-awful track. (Yes, of course Pitbull is on it!) (No, I didn’t think it was worth Googling the song title.) (AND NOBODY WANTS YOU BACK FOR SEASON 13, LADY!)

* All week long I’d been looking forward to a Candice Glover-Kree Harrison duet, and then they got stuck with “One Less Bell to Answer”/”A House Is Not a Home” — the same exact songs Candice sang with Amber back in Top 6 Week. WHY???? Fox’s reality chief Mike Darnell told me back in January that expense really isn’t an issue when it comes to song clearances, so again I ask, WHY??? Okay, the ladies sounded lovely as usual, but I feel like the selected tracks — and the fact that it was placed mere seconds before the winner’s announcement — robbed us of what should have been a true Season 12 moment.

You know what was a moment, though? Kree and Candice cradled in one another’s arms as Ryan Seacrest prepared to reveal the news for which we’d been waiting all night.

Candice-Glover-Confetti-ShowerTHE WINNER OF AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 12 IS…

Tears streamed down my face. I won’t even pretend that didn’t happen. Wow. This girl is on fire. She had come out with passion and ferocity from the moment she auditioned, and she never really lost focus. Watching her sob her way through her debut single “I Am Beautiful” underneath a confetti shower, well, it’s one of those Idol moments that make all the maddening production foibles and manipulations and treachery worth wading into. Hang onto that moment between now and January 2014 — and before you know it — we can all meet back up here for Season 13.

Thanks for all your fantastic, thoughtful comments here at TVLine all season long — and don’t forget — WE’LL HAVE VIDEO EXIT INTERVIEWS WITH CANDICE, KREE and ANGIE (plus, the season finale of Idology!) coming soon to this very Web site!

  2. HTGR says:

    OK, well that is sort of weird. Apparently Angie’s song has apparently been prohibited from being able to chart as a single. First the name spelled wrong and now it’s been declared some sort of A.I. compilation song even though the release is a single with just her. I don’t understand the details, but it’s apparently been declared by A.I. to be charting ineligible.
    Perhaps it is some contractual thing where they have to block out other contestants to protect the finalists or something. As I said if you don’t make the finale these days, it’s just a lot harder to make it. You not only don’t get the big promo, you even get blocked out for important early months. It still seems weird since they are basically totally shooting themselves utterly in the foot though and not helping them to rebuild their lower age demo any. Since she wrote it herself I guess they wouldn’t get as much money from it as usual but even still I don’t see how it helps them anyway. They are killing early momentum of someone who they would seemingly be able to try to use to improve their lower range demo. Maybe they were stuck due to way old contracts were written? They may have to look into that for future seasons.

    • HTGR says:

      I guess they do make a lot more money on finalists songs, especially compared to track from that they didn’t even write. it would seem short-sighted to block charting just over that though so I doubt that it why it happened (I’d hope not).

    • KREEdom2013 says:

      The Voice is different, all the contestant’s song from the performances can chart. Yes, Voice itunes sales are part of the singer’s votes. I think that is a great idea.

  3. HTGR says:

    It’s sort of bad her (Angie’s) song has apparently been blocked from being able to chart so it will never appear on the iTunes list or any other individual artist list for people to come upon by chance or for anyone to notice charting so it’s gotta kill sales a real lot and even for her own songs on iTunes it’s gonna be stuck at the bottom of her list which is also sort of weird.
    But despite that it apparently still has managed a fair amount of ratings, which are often a relatively decent proxy for how a song would chart (although not always) and probably would be right around at the top now and would probably be in at least the lower top ten as is (and with the extra push from being in the top ten would quite possible then have hit right around the top three spots perhaps and then sustained far, far longer, hard to say). Supposedly it has the most ratings of an Idol track this season, not sure though even despite the handicaps, but it’s gonna be sort of lost now.
    I was wondering why it wasn’t even making the bottom of the 200 list at least and wasn’t even charting but terribly even just under her own name alone hah.
    At least she got featured very well on the finale show and got the cool Jessie J thing.

    • KREEdom2013 says:

      Angie’s ‘YSMF’ single has more ratings than Candice and Kree’s singles combined. Even with all the hurdles (miss spelled name, not able to chart). I think if it charted it’s likely, the top 5 or even #1, at least for a short period of time.

  4. Ducky8abug says:

    Congratulations Ms. Candy Glover!

    I enjoyed Candy and Jennifer’s duet. It was a powerhouse performance! Very exciting! I enjoyed Adam Lambert and Angie’s duet, as well. Nice to see Adam Lambert again! The American Idol conspiracy spoof was a welcome comedic relief, and it was great to see the ten contestants together again (sans Lazaro…I’m sorry but he comes off as an unappreciated spoiled little brat). Watching the five girls together again was especially a treat for me. I’m not going to lie, this year’s girls were the best and sweetest bunch we’ve had in years. They were all terrifically talented, humble and likeable. I am going to miss those girls!

    Mostly, I wanted to thank Ms. Glover for giving me a reason to watch the show. Thank you, baby!

    In fact, I’d like to thank all five girls. Thank you…
    a. Candice Glover
    b. Kree Harrison
    c. Angie Miller
    d. Amber Holcomb
    e. Janelle Arthur

    I expect to see ALL of these girls in the limelight, for years to come and nothing short of that expectation will do.

    So, as a returning AI fan, I wanted to post this message and send out positive vibes to all. Have a great day!

  5. WishesRandyCouldn'tSpeak says:

    Glad to see that they fixed Angie’s typo on iTunes, ugh she will lose loads of sales cuz of that.

    Unfortunately, Angie confirmed that her single is not allowed to be charted – due to it being under the American Idol logo. Only Kree/Candice can chart ATM, she got totally screwed over. And it’s sad too cuz she has 1500 + ratings on hers while Candice/Kree have 700 combined.

    • HTGR says:

      Did Idol have to put it under the A.I. logo? Part of some old contracts protecting the finalists and their guaranteed contracts or something? Or did they just decide to do that for some hard to fathom reason?
      Idol can’t seem to catch the break they need, they woulda had someone way up right at or near the top and had someone building big early momentum when the going is hot and who seems to appeal to the segment they have lost most viewers in over the last few seasons and they can’t capitalize on it all that much.

      • KREEdom2013 says:

        It’s NOT fair that Angie’s ‘YSMF’ is can’t chart on itunes. Those SOB at Idol. Anyway, just from the ratings for the singles. Angie has double than both Candice and Kree combined. I think Angie would be in the top 5 in itunes for sure if charted. Other news the Winner of last seasons X-Factor, Tate “Country Bumkin” Stevens first two singles flopped and his debut album looks to be a flop as well. Yikes! Good night all.

        • teatime says:

          X-Factor really is a mess. For one thing, they have a fraction of the audience of Idol. So fewer people are voting and fewer people have any idea who the contestants are. Worse than that, though, they try too hard to control their contestants and make them into someone else. I think Tate won in part because being a country guy he was able to go out there and just sing a song every week. He sings well and his voting base was happy so he walked away with the win. But in the end there might not have been all that many people voting for him.
          I am so afraid Idol is going to ‘upgrade’ by adopting the conventions from the newer shows that are NOT an improvement over Idol. Please, Idol, just upgrade your song book already, give us a diverse field of contestants where at least 7 or 8 of them could win with the right choices, and stop throwing good contestants under the bus because you already want someone else to win.

          • Lisa says:

            I’m more optimistic about Idol than I have been in a while. I think they have an opportunity to be great once again. They need to highlight that they are the ONLY US show to produce stars. Idol has dozens of artists that aren’t heard on the radio, but are making a living making music. I might even highlight how many Voice contestants got their start on Idol. The original premise was to let the audience help find a star. Clean up the voting, update the songbook and make the show about the contestants again, not the judges. Obviously people haven’t lost their desire for singing competition shows, just Idol. Idol should be a better Idol and not a knock off version of The Voice.

            People keep mentioning Adam being a good judge. I think he would be better in the Jimmy role. It would be interesting watching Adam behind the scenes working with the contestants to help them develop their look and sound.

          • HTGR says:

            Tate had almost no twitter followers, barely any itunes downloads, just about no youtube views. Carly had almost infinitely more of all of that and yet Tate won. I guess it is the whole Southern vs. Northeastern (not that everyone votes for their region since I know people from the South her flipped out when Carly didn’t win, but overall they do pull votes better down there and if it is close it just takes like 15% more going this way or that even) voting thing plus what also might have been big was that Carly had zero back story to work for votes and they kept going on each week about how Tate gave up his dreams for his family and now that he went for them they would all starve unless he won. Carly was also pretty young. She seemed shy in front of the camera and acted more than felt her behind the scenes pieces. Unlike with sports, plenty of viewers of these types of shows seem to get sucked in by apparent personality and story as much as vocals. He was a decent singer but he seemed like one of any number of decently solid country singers out there and it didn’t seem like he had anything to make him stand out, less than the two country singers on Idol this season. I always thought he seemed middle of the pack each week for the most part, but no matter what happened he was first (or rarely second). Oh and yeah he was a WGWG so I guess that didn’t hurt the votes either. I was sort of disappointed because xfactor had seemed to start out as a show that would not be 10x bonus for WGWG/Southern but last season it sure quickly seemed to change into that.

    • HTGR says:

      They shouldn’t have kept talking like Angie had the finale in the bag when it was an every vote counts situation. I’m still not sure if they got the finalists they wanted (figuring Candice has been great, quite sure they wanted her in the finale, and Kree who supports their country fan base and fearing losing that, they were kind of down on her and yet they suddenly did some things the last two weeks you’d think they’d know would help to insure Angie made it so I don’t what, hard to say) or not. (and, if not, if they regret it a bit, seemed to be more Kree/Candice fan overlap so maybe Candice+Angie woulda kept ratings up a bit more and now can’t chart her either).
      Anyway Candice and Kree got up on the charts, congrats to them.

    • Timmah says:

      Angie will win out in the end when the other albums are complete flops and she becomes the only one that’s successful from this season.

      • kaba says:

        The ergregious amount of Angie fans that continue to wish misfortune on Kree and Candice is nothing short of sickening.
        Hell is the only place you and others ought to go if you’re insisting on hoping people who have gotten a chance at their dreams, with considerable talent, are unsuccessful in their endeavors.

  6. Guitar Blue says:

    With Idol viewership down over 30% for the finale, The Voice just coming in with their new top 10 format next week, and AGT in the wings, X-Factor right after in Sept. and another Voice season along with it – ———-

    The singing reality show launching pad to fame and fortune has lost a bit of it’s propulsion power. Candice will need to produce some hit records beyond this year, to stay relevant in the biz…………….

    Most of today’s upper-level, recognizable music stars, never competed in a talent show, Most of AI’s top 2, lose or leave their contract sometime in the 2nd or 3rd year, and then you see them rise like Carrie, Kelly — or they never have a hit again, after the buzz from the show has worn -off.

  7. Adam Fachry says:

    Everybody’s been saying that this is the most boring finale (not just the result episode, but the performance night as well). How could this be even more boring than the Scotty VS. Lauren? I literally turned off my tv during the second round of their performance night due to how awfully boring the two were as competitors.

    • Blank Slate says:

      McCreery and Alaina: Worst AI season ever. Those two were as interesting as watching the grass grow. No. Watching the grass grow is far better.

      • Adam Fachry says:

        IKR? And it’s not that I’m not a fan of country music, on the contrary though. Calling them bland and dull was a major understatement.

        • Mafs95 says:

          I like Country music but I have to admit that S10 finale was very boring and repetitive. If only one of them was in the finale, maybe it would be more diversified and much better.

    • Evelynne says:

      I’d have to agree, the country teen idol hoedown wins the most boring final 2 ever award. Still can’t believe out of all the talent an diversity in season 10 that it came down to those two. So disappointing.

  8. Mercedes S. says:

    I’m just glad I got to see my All-Time Idol – Adam Lambert! His duet with Angie was best perf. of the night. If the hopeless Idol producers knew what was good for them, they’d ask Adam to be on the judging panel next season.

  9. Ctz says:

    I didn’t care who won the season but when they announced Candice as the winner, I was so happy for her. I thought the finale was a great finish to a very boring season.
