Tonight’s episode of ‘American Idol’ (May 15) brought the first part of the Season 12 finale, and the Top 2 engaged in a true battle of country versus soul. Kree Harrison and Candice Glover performed three songs each: the first was chosen by ‘Idol’ creator Simon Fuller, the second was their potential winning single and the third was a reprise of a tune performed earlier in the season.
Rap diva Nicki Minaj is one and done.
Sources close to the production claim that the controversial star will exit 'American Idol' after Season 12 wraps tomorrow (May 16). She served on the judge's panel for a season, famously clashing with Mariah Carey, who also sat on the panel for her first year.
