Season 12 is heating up and it could be a game changer. American Idol finally found new judges who are entertaining and know something about music (I love her, but, Ellen?) and finally finally we could add a little diversity to our winners. It is no secret that the past five winners since Jordan Sparks have been white males. American Idol has been criticized for it's lack of diversity and while a large chunk of its viewers come the South which may be a reason, it is not an excuse. If Idol is going to go on forever, let's change things up!
So far, in a crazy twist, all four contestants to be eliminated have been male, leaving five diverse females and Lazaro Arbos, our last remaining (and Cuban!) guy. Now, I am not advocating that a girl has got to win just so we can diversify the winners, but come onnnnn. May the best singer win and all of that, but there has got to be some girl power in American Idol, amiright?
Here are the past few winners:
So who will win Season 12?
