It was a night of surprises on “American Idol.” In addition to none of the contestants being eliminated, Candice Glover got a big surprise from her idol Drake on Thursday’s results show. After performing his song “Find Your Love” the prior night, Drizzy left the South Carolina singer an audio message telling her how much he enjoyed her performance.
“You have an angelic voice. I almost wish you were there in the studio creating it with me. I feel like we could have brought it to life together,” he said.
While her back was still turned, Drizzy snuck up behind Candice, giving her a big hug and kiss.
“I’m so proud of you,” he told an emotional Candice.
His labelmate Nicki Minaj was behind the whole thing. “@NICKIMINAJ is an incredible person for setting that up. Love you always. Thank you!” Drake told the “Idol” judge.
