'American Idol' Chicago Auditions: The One Singer to Watch

The American Idol judges are on record predicting that a girl will win season 12 . I take that with a huge grain of salt because history is not on their side. Even if they pimp the ladies like Terrence Howard in Hustle and Flow , it's hard to fight the establishment. //www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-chicago-audition-48927.aspx
