The suspense is killing us…who will it be?!
American Idol is just getting good now that the contestants are being whittled down to take to the big stage.
Now is the best time to start making those winning predictions, and Keith Urban has already locked his in.
Sooo….who is it already, right?!
The country singing judge admitted he thinks this year is going to shake shake shakity shake things up:
“All I can say is at least from what we just saw last night it’s absolutely a girl’s year to win, in my opinion. That’s not to say the guys aren’t strong because they really are. Its really more a testament to how strong the girls are this year … We saw probably over 270 people all up to get it down to where we are today and the girls were just incredibly strong this year.”
Might not sound too crazy, but considering the last female winner was Jordin Sparks, this would be MAJOR!
And considering some of the most successful former Idol winners are women, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, it’s about time the ladiez take the title back!
Get it, gurls!
So, who can do it?
Keith had an answer for that, too, as he chose his frontrunner. He said:
“Certainly Kree [Harrison] is an extraordinarily gifted singer in an unusual way because she’s so effortless in the way she sings … She has this incredibly authentic voice in the same way that Adele has that incredibly authentic voice and I just believe her when she sings.”
Damn, already getting serious props from a judge?
Kree better bring it now!
We can’t wait to see who wows on the big stage and eventually goes home as the next American Idol!
