LOS ANGELES (AP) — Randy Jackson isn't sure who will take the crown on "American Idol."

The veteran judge of the Fox talent competition declared Wednesday's finale at the Nokia Theatre a dead heat after finalists Kree Harrison and Candice Glover performed three songs each.

Glover, the 23-year-old R&B vocalist of St. Helena Island, S.C., performed Adele's "Chasing Pavements," Ben E. King's "I Who Have Nothing" and potential future single "I Am Beautiful."

Harrison, the 22-year-old country crooner of Woodville, Texas., sang Sarah McLaughlan's "Angel," Patty Griffin's "Up to The Mountain" and potential future single "All Cried Out."

The finalist with the most viewer votes will be revealed Thursday.
