1) She is an American R&B singer who won the twelfth season of the American Idol. Glover is the first female winner of the show since Jordin Sparks won in 2007, the fourth African-American winner in American Idol history and the only winner to have auditioned three times before being cast for the live shows. Her debut album Music Speaks is scheduled for release on February 18, 2014, after being pushed back from October and July 2013.

2) Glover auditioned in Charlotte, North Carolina. She previously auditioned in the ninth and eleventh seasons. In the ninth season Simon Cowell said that he could not see Glover being anything more than a lounge singer and she was cut during the final 70 round. She was eliminated by producers during the ninth season when she forgot the lyrics to her song "Chasing Pavements" by Adele.

3) During her audition for the twelfth season, Glover sang "Syrup & Honey" by Duffy, where she received a standing ovation. Judge Randy Jackson said that she was the best performer by far in the competition. Mariah Carey called her singing "The best singing we have heard thus far." Glover advanced to Hollywood. In an interview, she said, "I thought they were going to get sick of seeing my face." For the first round in Hollywood, she sang "Impossible" by Christina Aguilera.
