‘American Idol’ upset: Jena Irene knocks Caleb Johnson out of first place

For the second time this season, Jena Irene has the best odds to win Season 13 of “American Idol” according to Gold Derby’s racetrack odds for Top 6 Week.

The last time the female rocker topped our leaderboard was way back in Top 8 Week (Part One). Since that time, Caleb Johnson has been the singer to beat, but now he’s dropped down to second place to make room for Jena.

Sam Woolf (odds of 6/1) – The former frontrunner received top billing on our charts for the first three live weeks of the season: Top 13 Week, Top 12 Week, Top 11 Week. He was in America’s bottom three a trio of times and would have been eliminated during Top 8 Week if not for the Judges’ Save. Sam is 17 years old from Bradenton, FL.

Alex Preston (odds of 11/1) – The self-proclaimed “awkward” singer was your pick to win just once, during Top 9 Week. Like Caleb, he has never appeared in America’s bottom two or three. Alex is 20 years old from Mont Vernon, NH.

C.J. Harris (odds of 28/1) – The soulful crooner has never appeared at the top of our winner’s chart. He has free-fallin’ into America’s bottom three a trio of times, during Top 9 Week, Top 8 Week (Part One) and Top 8 Week (Part Two). Caleb is 23 years old from Jasper, AL.

Jessica Meuse (odds of 33/1) – The dark horse singer hasn’t yet appeared in the #1 position of any of our winner’s charts — is it because she’s too boring? She’s been in America’s bottom three just once, during Top 7 Week. Jessica is 23 years old from Slapout, AL.
