LOS ANGELES  — One is a little bit country. The other is a little bit R&B.

Either country crooner Kree Harrison or vocal powerhouse Candice Glover will be revealed today as the 12th season champion of “American Idol.”

The winning finalist of the Fox singing competition will be awarded a record deal and could follow in the footsteps of such chart-topping winners as Carrie Underwood — or less successful champs like Lee DeWyze.

During Wednesday’s final performance round, Harrison, the 22-year-old country singer originally from Woodville, Texas, sang Sarah McLaughlan’s “Angel,” Patty Griffin’s “Up to the Mountain” and potential future single “All Cried Out.”

Glover, the booming 23-year-old R&B vocalist from 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.”
