Jessica Sanchez told MTV it’s time to end the streak of boy champions on American Idol.
“Boys have been winning ‘American Idol’ … I mean they’ve been on a winning streak,” she said. “I was hoping to break that streak last year. I think that was the only thing that really brought me down. I was like, ‘Dang! I couldn’t break that streak!’ But I hope a girl wins this year, just to give the girls some pride.”
Her favorite is Candice Glover, a holdover from last year’s contest. “That’s my girl from last year,” she said. “But I hope a girl wins. I’m very excited for them. Yes, girl power!”
You can watch an interview Jessica did with MTV about her upcoming single and album. The single with Neyo, Tonight, is due out next month followed by the debut album in the spring.
