American Idol's New Judges Cover Entertainment Weekly

American Idol judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and host Ryan Seacrest take the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the group shared with the mag:

On their predictions for Idol‘s 10th season:
Ryan: I think you’ll see some of the youngest talent we’ve ever had compete with some of the oldest talent we’ve ever had.
Jennifer: You may have the youngest winner ever.
Randy: I’m going to go out on a limb. I think a girl’s going to win the show.

On Simon Cowell no longer being with the show:
Randy: Look, it’s definitely been interesting. He’s our friend for life. I don’t know if Steven knows him much, but Jennifer definitely knows him. We’ve all hung out together. So, listen, we definitely miss him, but it’s a different kind of vibe. It’s a different kind of energy now. And I think in season 10 the show actually really needed it.

On the show only producing three superstars – Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Chris Daughtry:
Jennifer: I don’t know that that is such a fair statement. You named three [superstars] in nine years— that’s pretty amazing, that’s 33 percent. We all know that in this business, a 1 percent chance is huge, so I think this show is doing pretty well in that arena. So with addressing that comment, what are we looking for? We’re looking for a recording artist, a pop star, someone who’s a real artist. You can tell that when they walk in, the ones that have that special thing.
