Alex Preston is officially out of the running on American Idol, leaving Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson fighting for the honor of being named this year’s champion. A number of Facebook fans are predicting a victory for Jena, but at this point, Caleb is definitely not out of contention.
It feels like American Idol’s producers just confirmed rumors of Harry Connick Jr. joining the judging panel the other day, but already, the judge has spent an entire season offering his best advice to several of the music industry’s most impressive rising stars. It’s been a tough journey, with Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson proving the most popular among fans. Although both singers performed admirably during last night’s finale, only one can win.
It’s hard to say which singer will ultimately clinch a victory during tonight’s episode. Most viewers agree that Jena’s performances have been, on the whole, better than Caleb’s over the course of the season. However, when the two went head to head last night, neither exactly stood out as a clear winner.
Keith Urban recently took to Twitter to voice a sentiment on pretty much every American Idol voter’s mind: “You are BOTH making it possibly THE TOUGHEST vote in Idol history!!!” Although the hardcore Jena and Caleb fans may disagree with Keith, other viewers are finding it impossible to choose between the two. Thus, it’s likely that most fans of the show will be okay with tonight’s outcome, no matter what happens.
Which American Idol contestant do you feel deserves to be this season’s champion: Jena Irene or Caleb Johnson? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it, so feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
