A video recap of the night.

In video: Candice Glover is the next 'American Idol'

The third time was the charm. Candice Glover did not go home disappointed from the "American Idol" final results show on Thursday, overcoming contestant Kree Harrison.

"I can't even … oh my God, it's been three years," said Glover. "It's been three years of persistence, determination, and a lot of talent." 

Glover had twice tried out for the competition, failing to make the cut to the top 20 both times.
