Carrie Underwood: I want a woman to win 'Idol'
Season 4 champ eager to see the six season streak end
Former "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood is so keen for a female to take the crown on the singing competition this season that she's planning to vote to make it happen. The Season 4 champion is undoubtedly one of the greatest success stories to come out of the series, and the Grammy winner has continued to support the show that gave her her big break. This year, she'll be phoning in, knowing it has been six years since a girl was named the winner.
Carrie tells the Boot, "I'm always excited to watch the show and definitely will throw in some votes of my own. I would like to see another female take it home, I think it's time." But she admits the way American viewers vote is always unpredictable: "You never know who or why people vote a certain way. The way the voting goes has a lot to do with the audience watching the show. I don't know how I pulled off a win the year I was on. That year, they said a guy was gonna win and they were wrong, fortunately. Thank goodness."
"American Idol" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
