A triumph for Jax would put her in the company of five other female champs from years past: Kelly Clarkson (Season 1), Fantasia Barrino (Season 3), Carrie Underwood (Season 4), Jordin Sparks (Season 6) and Candice Glover (Season 12). Scroll through our photo gallery below of all past winners.
According to current Gold Derby predictions, Jax and Nick Fradiani are expected to play second fiddle to frontrunner Clark Beckham, who has overwhelming odds of 4/7 to win Season 14. (Click here to see the complete odds for the season finale.)
In our “American Idol” predictions center, you get to answer three questions for the season finale:

Be sure to visit our predictions center and make/update your forecasts before voting closes Tuesday at 6 p.m. PT.

Where do you fall on our overall Season 14 leaderboard?
For the entire season so far, JB and Phoenix have been in a hard-fought battle for first place, with JB taking the lead again this week with overall 66% prediction accuracy. Perhaps we should all listen to JB when he says that Clark will be the winner of “American Idol” Season 14.
There’s a three-way tie for second place now, with Phoenix (16,970 points), Ryan Lapierre (8,614 points) and Denton (7,994 points) all at 59% accuracy. Click here to see where you score on our overall season leaderboard.
Can YOU beat these frontrunners to win our prizes? Then be sure to take part in our “American Idol” prediction contest. We’re giving away $100 Amazon gift certificates to our weekly winners plus at season’s end. The deadline for the season finale is Tuesday at 6 p.m. PT.
Our current overall leader JB correctly predicted Rayvon’s ouster this week. However, he missed calling Tyanna’s elimination in Top 5 Week (see complete predix), proving that it’s possible to do well in our contests without getting everything right.
Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
