Members of Candice Glover's family, from left, her brother Jonathan, her cousin Joshua Glover and her parents John and Carol gather to watch Candice sing on American Idol on Wednesday. The St. Helena Island native became one of the last 20 contestants standing in the TV singing competition.

This is Glover's third audition for the show. She has never been a semi-finalist before.

American Idol continued next week with live performances. Viewers will be able to cast their vote for who makes it through the next round and becomes one of the final 10 contestants.
