American Idol Wiki

"Glitter" is the coronation song by Nicolina, who tied for fourth place alongside Fritz Hager on Season 20 of American Idol.


The song was originally recorded by singer-songwriter Patrick Droney,[1] who self-produced and co-wrote it with Wayne Hector.[2] After a lone single distribution,[1] it was later released on Droney's EP, State of the Heart (both in 2020). The following year, it was included on his album—also titled State of the Heart (2021).[3]


Nicolina's rendition was produced by Mr. Franks,[4] and released through 19 Recordings. She opted to cover Droney's song,[4] rather than some previously written–but unrecorded–material, because she felt the lyrics about "grief" resonated with her.[4]
