- American Idol 13 Recaps
Once again, it’s the yearly “THE GIRLS ARE STRONGER AND WILL WIN IDOL THIS YEAR” wishful thinking proclamation from the American Idol judges.
“Girls, do not disappoint the Dawg. I think it’s the girls’ year,” Randy Jackson tells PEOPLE of the new crop of contestants on the reality show, which premieres Wednesday (8 p.m. ET) on Fox.
“There are some talented boys, but I must say, I think the girls could really win one,” he adds. “We haven’t had a girl winner in so long.”
New judge Nicki Minaj agrees that the women contestants really bring their A-game to the show. “The girls are exceptional. I mean, a girl will definitely win this year, I think,” she says.
Minaj finds the ladies are “more seasoned, more poised, more professional” – and some of them combine that maturity with a great voice.
Different judges. Same song. Aren’t they adorable?
It’s hard to predict without sampling the talent, but I think the girls will always have an uphill climb competing on American Idol.
The folks who vote on talent competitions just seem to favor the boys. Hence, the generic country crooner, Tate Stevens, was at the top of the X Factor leaderboard nearly every week.
Sure, Cassadee Pope won The Voice, but if she had gone head to head with her runner up, classic rocker, Terry McCermott (and without the iTunes voting shenanigans) she would have lost.
So, what do you think? Could a girl ever win American Idol again?
