Although two guys faced off for the American Idol title last year (David Cook and David Archuletta, with Cook winning), Simon Cowell says that doesn’t mean it’s a girl’s turn to win this season. “[It will be a] boy this year,” Cowell told People, and fellow judge Randy Jackson agreed, saying, “I think it’s a dude, too.” Each week, the top guy and girl are chosen, plus the singer with the next highest votes, whether male or female. With the girls putting in less-than-stellar performances, four guys have made it through so far — Danny Gokey, Michael Sarver, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert, compared to only two girls — Alexis Grace and Allison Iraheta. The singers who didn’t make it through — but who should have a second chance for the wild card show — are mostly guys, like Anoop Desai, Brent Keith and Ricky Braddy. Tatiana Del Toro, though known mainly for her hysterics, is the only girl singer who has shown she has the talent to go far in the competition. What do you think? Is a guy or a girl going to be crowned this year’s American Idol?
