Glover advances to American Idol top 8

St. Helena Island native Candice Glover's performance of The Beatles' "Come Together" earned her an easy advancement to the top eight on American Idol Thursday night.  

More kind words were given to Glover's performance and she appears to be taking on "the natural" role of the season.

Glover will perform again on Wednesday, March 28, on the show's time slot from 8 to 10 p.m. The final show is slated for May 16.
