Eliminated 'American Idol' contestant discusses show

(This article contains some spoilers for the last few episodes of American Idol. If you are a fan of the series and are not caught up, this is your time to click off this article.)


The all-female final five on American Idol's 12th season has become a final four, after Janelle Arthur was sent home this week. 

Arthur is not taking the news too badly, however.

“This group of girls in particular are not out to get each other,” she said. “We are really laid back. I think we were more laid back than some of the guys. I think we all really love each other…We don’t think of it as a competition."

Arthur thought that the final five being female was a neat hook for this season.


“It is what it is, and I think that maybe the American people thought a top five female group would be just awesome because it never happened before,” she said. “Maybe people were just really rooting for that."

She added that "America can't go wrong," with whatever female wins the show, she is just happy that one of her friends is going to get this honor.

“I’ve been wanting a female Idol for a long time,” she said. “It’s time for a female to win."

Who is your remaining favorite?

If men went on about 'men' winning this and beating the women, they would be branded sexist. Somehow it's ok for girls to go on about girl power. The girls are in the final because they were better than the rest. There is no conspiracy. It's time for these shows to pick the best singers and not pit boys against girls, that is so childish.
