Several years ago, the start of the “American Idol” tour would have been considered a big deal, and something really worth discussion from the masses. However, there are times this year when it really feels a little bit more like an afterthought for some. There were many dates canceled, many tickets are still available, and there has certainly been friction displayed publicly with many members of the touring artists. Not exactly a great mixture.
The unfortunate thing about all of this is that the problems with “American Idol” season 12 (and there were many) ended up overshadowing the great singers who did make it to the end this year, including three of the best pure singers to make it to the very end of the show. Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, and Angie Miller were understandably the standouts for us of the tour opener in Kent, Washington last night, and we have videos of all three artists performing below.
Take a quick look at some of the artists’ most-notable moments.
Kree – She of course took advantage of the opportunity to perform her single “All Cried Out,” which still sounds great live. Kree has already had an opportunity to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, so she has had opportunities to perform before even getting out on this tour.
Angie – Angie sang her new original “Put It On Me,” and thematically it feels rather similar to her famed “You Set Me Free.” The song is about releasing burdens, and how she can be the one to help you do that.
Candice – While Candice did perform “I Am Beautiful,” we cannot pass up the opportunity to show a video of her performing “Lovesong,” given that it was one of the greatest performances in the history of the show when she did it earlier this year.
