“American Idol” returns to FOX tonight with the first episode of the twelfth season! Will you be watching? We will get to see how new judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj fare with veteran Randy Jackson and host Ryan Seacrest. It certainly will be a night of singing that you won’t want to miss! We will be watching the show and providing our live blog tonight as the show airs, so don’t miss out.
The judges have their predictions as to this season’s winner, as well. They aren’t naming names, but they do hope for a girl to win this time around. Randy said, “Girls, do not disappoint the Dawg. I think it’s the girls’ year. There are some talented boys, but I must say, I think the girls could really win one. We haven’t had a girl winner in so long.”
Nicki said, “The girls are exceptional. I mean, a girl will definitely win this year, I think”, adding that the girls are “more seasoned, more poised, more professional.”
Keith added, “All four of us had the conversation, ‘What are we looking for?’ Because we can’t send two million people to Hollywood.”
