  • Notes (6)

    • This is the first season since Season 5 when it was introduced, that the coronation song (that is played in the good-bye videos when contestants are eliminated) was not performed on the finale. Instead it was performed earlier in the season.

    • Each contestant performed three songs. The first was Simon Fuller's Choice, the second was the Winner's Song, and the last was their favourite performance from the season. The songs sung tonight were:
      Kree Harrison-"Angel" by Sarah McLachlan 
      Candice Glover-"Chasing Pavements" by Adele 
      Kree Harrison-"All Cried Out" (Original) 
      Candice Glover-"I Am Beautiful" (Original)
      Kree Harrison-"Up To The Mountain (MLK Song)" by Patty Griffin 
      Candice Glover-"I (Who Have Nothing)" by Ben E. King

    • This is the third time that both Idols had their own original songs as the Winner's Song. The other seasons were 5 and 11. In Season 7 both David Cook and Archuleta performed original songs, but neither were Winner's songs.

    • This is just the second time that there is an all female finale, the first being Season 3. It is also the third time that both the Winner and Runner Up have previously been in the Bottom 2 or 3 (Seasons 3, and 8) and the fourth time that the Winner has been in the Bottom 2 or 3 (Season 2, 3, and 8).

    • Ryan mentioned that for the first time ever the Winner's album would be up on iTunes for Pre-Order immediately after the finale.
