Candice Glover has been a front unner in this season's 'American Idol' competition and for good reason. The contestant's sultry, dominating voice stole the heart's of the judges and America.

Millions of votes were tallied and last night (May 16), Glover was announced as Season 12's winner.

Before performing on the finale stage, Aretha Franklin gave the 'Idol' winner a big shout out that basically predicted the young star's win.

Candice sang a powerful, show-stopping duet with Jennifer Hudson. If anyone needs proof of her talent, which I'm sure none of you don't, just watch their duet.
