Tuesday, 6. March 2012

While American Idol is a leading US singing competition, the show has developed a significant following among Canadian. Many Canadians place bets online regarding who will be voted the next American Idol. This year is certainly no exception, due in no small part to the incredible pool of talent present this season.

Until very recently, the judges – Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson – had predicted that one of the women would be the most likely winner of this season. With just 13 contestants left, Phillip Phillips is leading according to outright winner odds at the majority of sportsbooks. bet365 has Phillip Phillips as the 4:1 favorite to win the whole kit and caboodle with Jessica Sanchez coming in at a close second with 5:1 odds.

This latest season of American Idol has had its share of controversy. While many viewers appear to be happy with the more constructive approach and laid back attitude of the judges, there are those that miss Simon Cowell’s brutally honest and no-nonsense approach to judging.
