It’s been no secret that the American Idol producers have been dying for another girl to win the title. And it’s blazingly obvious that they’re going to make that happen for American Idol 2013.
They’re spending more time on the girls. They’re praising the girls more. They’re cutting the good looking guys, hoping the teen girls won’t have anyone cute to vote for. Oh, and the judges are even spelling it out. Well, at least Keith Urban is.
“I think at least from what we saw [Wednesday] night, it’s absolutely a girl’s year to win, in my opinion,” Keith told the Hollywood Reporter. “That’s not to say the guys aren’t strong, they really are, it’s really more a testament to how strong the girls are this year.”
Keith isn’t ready to make any specific predictions, but he does think Top 20-member Angela Miller is standing out.
“I will say the audience reaction to Angela Miller and a couple of other girls was pretty obvious,” Keith said. “I think the original song of Angela’s that has been floating around the internet that you can find has really resonated with a lot of people, so that’s really cool to see.”
