Three years.

That's what Candice Glover uttered last night upon being crowned American Idol winner, citing the number of seasons on which she's appeared.

"I'm still trying to process it,"' she told reporters soon after the finale ended. "I don't even know my name! Oh my gosh! I don't know what's happening! It feels amazing though to finally have gotten to this point after working so hard for so long.

Following last week's unsurprising surprise, all four American Idol finalists returned to the big stage last night.

And all impressed once again, with Candice Glover, Amber Holcomb, Kree Harrison and Angie Miller tacking classics from years ago and current hits from minutes ago.

But who stood out the most? That honor most once again go to Glover, who made like Rihanna on a version of "Diamond" that some might say showed up the original take. Judge for yourself now:

The other women went with Bruno Mars, Pink and Carrie Underwood for their modern day rendition.

Did a new favorite emerge on American Idol last night?

With the judges seemingly against Candice Glover and Kree Harrison from the start - and with the remaining women singing both a song of their choice and a one-hit wonder - the stage was set for a new finalist to take charge.

And Angie Miller stood right up and did just that. Actually, she sat right down at piano and did just that.

Watch her sterling rendition here of "Who You Are."

Was this the top performance of the evening?

The ratings may not be there on American Idol Season 12.

But the talent is very much present.

With Janelle Arthur being eliminated this week, we are down to the final four - and any one of Candice Glover, Amber Holcomb, Kree Harrison and Angie Miller could take the grand prize next week.

American Idol Final 4

Who do we think deserves it? Once again, THG presents our American Idol Power Poll below, ranking the finalists from fourth to first...

4. Amber Holcomb. While her performance of "What Are You Doing For The Rest of Your Life" was technically flawless, it was old and a sleepy way to end the night. Amber struggles with the up-tempo numbers and isn't as versatile as the other girls.

There was Whitney Houston and Dolly Parton, Beyonce and Celine Dion. Who put on the best performance of the evening?

Amber Holcomb sure made Dolly Parton proud with this cover of "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?" Check it out now.

It's safe to say we didn't expect a lot from American Idol last night.

12 songs by 6 contestants? In two hours? One of which would be a cover of... Burt Bacharach?!? Wake us when it's over, right?

But then Candice Glover took to the stage and, many would say, made history. It's impossible to determine the greatest performance of all-time in Idol.

But Glover may have just given us the greatest overall night, positively owning "Don't Make Me Over" and "Love Song." Watch both renditions now:

As for Janelle Arthur, Amber Holcomb and company?
