Okay, so we know it is way too early to predict who wins American Idol 2014 season 13. However, we just couldn’t’ resist engaging in some seriously premature speculation on which one of the singers on our American Idol spoilers list of the Top 3o might take home the crown.
First of all, let’s consider the fate of the two contestants who were left in limbo at the end of Hollywood Week, Ben Briley and Neco Starr. American Idol judges Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and Jennifer Lopez supposedly couldn’t decide which one they wanted to have in the season 13 Top 30, so they temporarily named them both to the Top 31 instead.
The voters will choose which guy gets cut, with the results being announced at the start of next week. However, we honestly don’t think either of them is likely to make it all the way to the finale regardless. Both guys are great, talented, and interesting. Honestly though, we just don’t really see either of them as the kind of contestant that will garner enough votes to win this thing.
So, moving on to the rest of the American Idol Top 30 contestants. Currently we’ve made our own little list of Top 13 singers so far in the competition. Now we’ll have to decide which one we think has the total package to end up as the one who won American Idol 2014.
Now, please note that our Top 13 prediction list is NOT just about talent. We aren’t including some singers who are absolutely on our favorites list, but for some reason or another we don’t think they will get voted to the Top 10. Of course, this is all just WILD speculation at this point.
Here’s our Top 13 list prediction so far: Jillian Jensen, Austin Wolfe, Spencer Lloyd, Sam Woolf, Marialle Sellars, Majesty York, Jena Asciutto, Caleb Johnson, Alex Preston, C. J. Harris, Briana Oakley, Casey Thrasher, and Bria Anai Johnson.
From that incredibly speculative Top 10 list, we think the winner this year will NOT be a girl. So that leaves us with Spencer, Sam, Caleb, Alex, C. J. or Casey as possible picks if we were to get our Top 13 correct. (Which we won’t, of course.)
If it did come down to choosing one of these guys as the ultimate winner, we’d have to go with Alex… or Casey. Call us crazy, but we feel it is the year of the somewhat quirky, cute but not boy band hot guy with serious musical skills. Or, in other words, a Phillip Phillips style repeat year. Last season was the year of the girl, this season, we think the guys will come out on top once again.
I don’t know her name but she was on last night and made it through. Dark hair, full face-looks similar to Katy Perry and also vocals sound much like her. A bonus is she can also play keyboard-something Katy can’t! My out of the hat American idol winner! “No boy this year” with her in the running!
Jena Ascuito! And the judges “WILL” remember how to pronounce her name!
Eh. My Top 13 is Sam Woolf, Jessica Meuse, Briana Oakley, Alex Preston, Kenzie Hall, Briston Maroney, Jena Asciutto, Malaya Watson, Majesty York, Casey Thrasher, Maurice Townsend, Malcolm Allen, and Caleb Johnson
ty for the good service jake from state farm
Caleb? really? did you see twitter votes?
My Top 13:
Boys: 1- Sam Woolf 2- Ethan Harris 3- Spencer Lloyd 4- Briston Maroney 5- Alex Preston 6- Casey Thrasher
Girls: 1- Kenzie Hall 2- Kristen O’Connor 3- Emily Piriz 4- Austin Wolfe 5- Jessica Meuse 6- Jena Ascuitto 7- Brandy Neely
Yes, we did see the votes. But the judges also get to pick three people for the top 13…
Emily Piriz is the best one.
Sam Woolf WILL win. You heard it here first.
I prefer Malaya Watson.
It is fun to guess isn’t it. The fact is the producers will have the
judges try to influence voters to vote in such a way that the show has a
“balanced mix” of gender and race. You can just count the top 30. 15
guys and 15 girls. 15 white and 15 non white (assuming Neco gets in,
which he should). And the “voting” will likely go the same way. Some
singers were sent home who could sing much better than 3 or 4 who made
the “30”. Gotta get that balance baby!
I don’t find anything special with Jillian Jensen. Just because she joined X Factor doesn’t mean she’s better than the others. I prefer Malaya or Kenzie over her.
Who is this ‘we’ you keep referring to in this article? I don’ remember being a part of your decision-making.

I can’t guess the top 13 but I do hope Alex goes far. I absolutely love his song fairytales.
Funny how this is completely different to the knew one -.-
Different writers on those two opinions. 🙂
Haha your prediction was pretty inaccurate. Emily Piriz will at least make it to the top 5.
