American Idol 2013: Janelle Arthur Has Nothing But Good Things To Say About Top 4

Janelle Arthur on American Idol

Last week we said goodbye to country singer Janelle Arthur on American Idol 2013.

Since then, she’s hit the interview circuit and while some of the guys chose to be less kind to their competition, Janelle had nothing but kind words for her fellow contestants left in the competition.

“This group of girls in particular are not out to get each other,” said during a conference call with reporters and bloggers. “We are really laid back. I think we were more laid back than some of the guys. I think we all really love each other…We don’t think of it as a competition.”

Upon his elimination, Lazaro Arbos stated that Idol producers’ manipulation are what lead to an all-girl Top 5 last week. There’s no way 5 guys could have left in a row,” he said. I agree with Lazaro. I’ve been saying it all season. Janelle, however, does not agree.

“It is what it is,” she said when asked about Lazaro’s remarks, “and I think that maybe the American people thought a top five female group would be just awesome because it never happened before. Maybe people were just really rooting for that.”

Well if that’s the case, America got their wish. And so did Janelle.

“I’ve been wanting a female Idol for a long time,” she said. “It’s time for a female to win.”
