American Idol Judges: Expect Strongest Field Ever!

at . Comments
It's rare, but all three American Idol judges agreed on something in a recent interview with Extra:

This season's field of American Idol finalists will be the best ever.

“This will be the strongest twelve we've ever had, and I've never, ever said that before,” Simon Cowell said.

And Paula Abdul actually felt the same way as her friend/rival for once.

“We've never had a top twelve like we're going to have this season,” she said.

Added Randy Jackson: “I think it's the best we've ever had.”

But will this year's Idol produce another Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood this year? “I'm going on record: There's more than one,” Paula said.
