As the search for a brand new “American Idol” reaches the final stages, reports suggest that fan favorite Candice Glover, whom, critics say is the best singer left in the contest, is doing her best to ensure she bags the ultimate prize with some personality training.
“Candice really has the best voice and the potential to win, but doesn’t have that much personality. So at the urging of Mariah (Carey) she has been given a professional personality coach in the last couple of weeks,” a source said. “Mariah is really rooting for her.”
Perhaps understandably, the other contestants are not so pleased about this helping hand Candice is getting, and it’s causing some bitterness and conflict behind the scenes.
“It’s fueling the contestants,” continued the insider. “And it’s fueling the ongoing feud between Mariah and Nicky (Minaj) too. Nicky has other ideas of who should win.”
Candice Glover is one of the top four remaining finalists, the others being Kree Harrison, Angie Miller and Amber Holcomb. Oe of them will be axed tonight.
Candice is not the first “American Idol” hopeful to get some personality coaching works. Believe it or not, Carrie Underwood, once the humble farm girl from Oklahoma who took advantage of the same training on her way to with the “American Idol” title in 2005.
“Back then Carrie was considered too quiet and flat,” added the insider. “Bo Bice (the eventual runner-up) was the one with the winning charm.”
Will this be another success story? Will personality training allow Candice Glover to follow Carrie Underwood to the “American Idol” title?
