aretha franklin idol finale

Singer Aretha Franklin is interviewed via satellite during Fox’s “American Idol 2013″ Finale Results Show at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on May 16, 2013 in Los Angeles

*Aretha Franklin provided an awkward moment during Thursday’s “American Idol” finale when she referred to finalist Candice Glover as “a winner,” before she was officially announced.

“Candice, you’re a winner,” the legend said from a huge screen in LA’s Nokia Theater.

The Queen of Soul immediately followed it up with, “Win or lose – you’re a winner.” However, Ryan Seacrest – after an awkward pause – decided to clear up any confusion by nervously asking her, “You don’t have the results do you?”

“I do,” Franklin answered from a studio in New York, where she was about to perform, “but I won’t tell you.”

A rep for Fox told BuzzFeed that ReRe “did not know the results.”
