Nicki Minaj may be the most controversial member of the American Idol 2013 judges’ panel, but contestants and viewers alike can rely on her for brutal honesty, at the very least.

 

Week after week, the curvaceous rapper’s unfiltered feedback make fun fodder for the media, but she makes no apologies for her quick-draw comments.

 

“I am absolutely just being me,” Nicki said in a recent conference call with reporters.

 

Despite Nicki’s candid nature, when Wetpaint Entertainment asked Nicki who her frontrunners for American Idol Season 12 were, we weren’t sure if she would show her cards so early in the game.

 

But sure enough, she answered our question — with some details to spare.

 

“I would say Kree and Angie I think are our frontrunners,” Nicki answered. “I mean Kree, Angie, and Candice.”

 

“I think that outside of their voices they’ve just sort of won people over already, which I think is evident in just what I see on Twitter with my fans,” she continued. “You know those three seem to have really, really made an impact not only with just a great voice that sounds like it should already be making albums but for some reason their personality seems to [grab] a lot of fans.”

 

Since all of Nicki’s top picks are girls, does that mean a guy has no chance of winning this year?

 

“No, absolutely not,” Nicki said.

 

There you have it, Nicki Minaj’s prediction for the American Idol 2013 winner! Do you agree that a girl will win this year?
