Who will win season 10 of American Idol? We might need to learn the identity of the contestants before we can venture a guess.
But in this week's Entertainment Weekly, members of the new (and improved?) panel make a couple broad predictions. To wit:
Ryan: I think you’ll see some of the youngest talent we’ve ever had compete with some of the oldest talent we’ve ever had.
J. Lo: You may have the youngest winner ever.
Randy: I’m going to go out on a limb. I think a girl’s going to win the show.
The show has already confirmed a few major changes for the new season. Below, meanwhile, the Idol team touches on a couple other aspects, including the British elephant NOT in the room...
Will the show miss Simon Cowell?
Randy: Look, it’s definitely been interesting. He’s our friend for life. I don’t know if Steven knows him much, but Jennifer definitely knows him. We’ve all hung out together. So, listen, we definitely miss him, but it’s a different kind of vibe. It’s a different kind of energy now. And I think in season 10 the show actually really needed it.
What about the lack in recent superstars produced by Idol?
J. Lo: We all know that in this business, a 1 percent chance is huge, so I think this show is doing pretty well in that arena. So with addressing that comment, what are we looking for? We’re looking for a recording artist, a pop star, someone who’s a real artist. You can tell that when they walk in, the ones that have that special thing.
