Janelle, 23, sang Vince Gill’s “When I Call Your Name” and Dolly Parton‘s “Dumb Blonde” while Candice, 23, took on the Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston classic “When You Believe”, as well as “Straight Up” by Paula Abdul.
Both girls received praise for their performances, but Nick Minaj told Candice, “That is how you do a Mariah Carey/Whitney Houston song. There’s a bigger message here. For women, for everyone, for Boston. Everyone needs to feel that right now.”
