It is no secret Amber Riley can totally appreciate great music and singing, but we have learned that she is a super fan of American Idol and especially of new Idol winner Candice Glover.
During the season finale of Idol, Amber tweeted out a picture of herself enjoying the show with season 9 contestant Todrick Hall. The two looked like little school kids giddy with glee, as they watched the top 5 American Idol boys sing a medley of hits with Frankie Valli. We are pretty sure that Amber, who is always the diva, enjoyed watching Mariah Carey as she sang a medley of her hits, including her current single "Beautiful."
There were also performances by the top 5 American Idol girls who did a medley with Aretha Franklin via satellite. Then there was Jennifer Lopez who returned to American Idol to perform with Pitbull. Plus, The big winner of the night, Candice Glover, performed with Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson as the two sang "Inseparable" before Candice's big win. Candice's win is the first time that a female has won Idol since Jordin Sparks won back in season 6.
Amber tweeted her congrats to Candice:
Congrats to Candice for winning Idol tonight! Everyone was amazing, great show! Goodnight 💜✌- Amber Patrice Riley (@MsAmberPRiley) May 17, 2013
With all the rumors that have been swirling around the shake-up of the judges at American Idol we have to ask: Do you think Amber would make a good judge on Idol? If so, we hope someone will start the Facebook campaign.
