Simon Cowell is never shy about voicing his opinion.
Therefore, when asked about season eight of American Idol, the British judge told the following to People Magazine:
On who will win: “[It will be a] boy this year"
On the Joanna Pacitti disqualification: “I like scandals. It’s not American Idol without a scandal. In fact I hope we have some more, I really do.”
On the new show format: “The fact that we change these middle rounds makes it less monotonous. It’s a more interesting group of people than last year, a bit more personality, different types of singers.”
Hmmm, a boy, huh? Our money would be on Danny Gokey or Matt Giraud.
