Season 12 "American Idol" champion Candice Glover is finally about to release her debut album, "Music Speaks," on Feb. 18, just a new crop of "Idol" hopefuls go through the Hollywood Week ringer. Will any of those Season 13 contestants deliver as dynamite a performance as Candice's cover of the Cure's "Love Song," a tour de force so memorable, it was included on "Music Speaks" due to fans' popular demand? We shall see, but let's just say the next "Idol" winner has a lot to live up to.

Candice recently swung by Yahoo Studios to perform "Love Song," along with two new originals: the emotional breakup ballad "Cried" and the breezy, uptempo "In the Middle." And even alone, with just a microphone and none of the bells and whistles of Ray Chew's old house band, she blew us all away with the force of her voice. Check out her exclusive performances below!

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
