‘American Idol’ winner predictions: Laine Hardy gains on Alejandro Aranda, but what about Madison VanDenburg?

Laine Hardy could well win “American Idol” on Sunday according to our poll of viewers. He has narrowed the gap with frontrunner Alejandro Aranda to just seven points (48-41). Right after the Top 3 were revealed on the May 12 episode of “American Idol,” Alejandro enjoyed a 10-point advantage. In the intervening week, the third finalist, Madison VanDenburg, has slipped even further behind, with just 11% support.

This trip of talent made it through to the final on May 19 based on their votes from the public last Sunday. Just missing out on a place in the Top 3 were Laci Kaye Booth and Wade Cota (Was one of them robbed of a place in the final?) On that Top 5 episode, each of them sang three songs: one from the Elton John catalog, another in honor of Mother’s Day, and a third chosen by mentor Bobby Bones.

Madison VanDenburg on ‘American Idol’: ‘Fallin’ by Alicia Keys is her best song on season 17 so far

Madison VanDenburg has sung nine songs so far on “American Idol” and viewers think that four of these were real winners. In our poll asking viewers to pick her best song so far on season 17, her Top 14 cover of the Alicia Keys hit “Fallin’” racked up 22% of the tally to date. Conversely, her version that night of Lady Gaga‘s “You and I” merited a mere 3$ of the total vote count.

Her Top 6 performance of the Celine Dion power ballad “I Surrender” was a hit with “Idol” fans, earning 17% in our poll. Also registering double digit support were Madison’s Top 40 song, “Who’s Lovin’ You” by The Miracles (it has 15% as of this writing), and her Top 10 cover of the Disney tune “How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana,” which is at 12%.

‘American Idol’ Top 5 predictions: Laci Kaye Booth and Madison VanDenburg will be eliminated on May 12

But she has earned only a measly 6% in our survey of “American Idol” fans heading into the Top 5 show on May 12.

The other contestant joining her in the bottom two is likely to be Madison VanDenburg who merited a mere 8% in our poll results. All five singers still in the competition will take to the stage on Sunday to perform a trio of tunes. Each will sing a song from the Elton John catalog, another picked out by mentor Bobby Bones and a third in honor of Mother’s Day.

‘American Idol’ Top 4 predictions: Laci Kaye Booth and Madison VanDenburg will be eliminated unless they get judges save
Sunday’s “American Idol” episode showcases the Top 6 who will sing two songs each: one that is inspirational and the other from 50 years ago.
