Johannesburg - M-Net has announced that they will be screening the 12th American Idol finale live on Friday morning at 02:00 that will see either Candice Glover or Kree Harrison take the coveted title.

The two-part finale of American Idol season 12 will be broadcast live on M-Net (DStv channel 101) at 02:00 on Thursday, 16 May, followed by the final results show on Friday morning at 02:00.

Candice and Kree are hoping to join the ranks of former Idol winners that include Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and last year's winner Phillip Phillips.

Following the elimination of Angie Miller last week, 23-year-old Candice and Kree, who turns 23 on the day of the final results show on Friday, are the two women left standing.

The two are battling it out to be the first woman to be named American Idol since Jordin Sparks in season 6.

When asked what winning American Idol would mean to them, the Top 2 replied: "It would mean the absolute world," said Candice. "I definitely feel like, no matter what, I've come so far. Everything I've worked for will have paid off."

Said Kree: "It would mean so much because it would mean the sooner I'd get to make my record! More than anything, I would feel accomplished, knowing that I could make music."

The two-hour finale will also feature Call Me Maybe singer Carly Rae Jepsen performing her new song, Take a Picture, a collaborative effort between American Idol fans and the singer herself.
The live broadcasts will be re-aired during the usual delayed broadcast timeslot on M-Net: Saturday, 18 May at 18:00 for the performances and Sunday, 19 May at 16:55 the final results show will be rebroadcast.
