Based on the predictions of our users, Clark is predicted to win the season with odds of 1/1. Jax follows behind him with 2/1 odds, followed by Nick in third place at 9/1 and Rayvon way down in last place with odds of 50/1.

With overall support of 51%, is Clark going to win Season 14 in a landslide? Not so fast, according to some of our top predictors.

Two of our users who have the best prediction scores this season are predicting an upset by Nick: Benutty and NgoKhang.

Also among the 10% predicting Nick to win is last week’s $100 champion, FreemanGriffin. He was one of only four people to reap perfect 100% prediction accuracy while predicting Top 5 Week, however he took the lead (and the $100 weekly prize) with 3,002 points thanks to using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely.

Meanwhile, I’m one of the 33% of users who are going out on a limb for Jax, despite the fact that six of the past seven winners have all been guitar-playing, young white guys … just like Clark and Nick. (See our photo gallery of past winners below.)

Which singer will be eliminated next? Be sure to visit our predictions center and make/update your forecasts before voting closes Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT. The user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.

Where do you fall on our overall Season 14 leaderboard?

For the entire season so far, Phoenix and JB are tied for first place with 61% accuracy, though Phoenix’s point score (16,735) is higher than JB’s (2,915) thanks to locking in better odds and using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely.

Third place goes to Denton with 57%, and then there’s a three-way tie for fourth place with Benutty, Povalles and Ryan Lapierre all at 54%. Click here to see where you score on our overall season leaderboard.

Our current overall leader Phoenix correctly predicted Tyanna’s ouster this week and Quentin’s exit last week. However, he missed calling Joey’s elimination in Top 7 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.

To vote for who think will go home next on “American Idol,” drag contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. For example, if you think Nick will be eliminated, make sure you put him in first place. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.

  1. It looked like the MOST promising season due to what they had to choose from this year…impressive…but they chose the wrong bunch of introverted awkward rejects I have EVER seen on this show…just AWFUL! AI forgets that WE AT HOME want to be entertained….they need to help these kids chose the RIGHT material and there will be moments….retool and mentor these kids right and we will watch again..til then it is a bust!

  2. jax needs to go she is just a fake with a ok voice; totally dishonest with her presentation and looks just a disappointment

  3. REally don’t like Jackie cole. she would end up being another hanna Montana or lohan. with her gang tattoo on her face and overly bleached hair, she should be singing at dives instead.

  4. Man eff this… Nick Fradiani is winning. Last year everyone said Jena was gonna win…clark lost fans last week and his songs this week suck too..even if Nick loses Scott will sign him while Clark will be dropped in 6 months top. Nick and Max will outsole Clark. Tired of Southern folks winning..let a hot Italian man win.

  5. not even close nick is the whole package clarks boring jax maybe nick parade was insane he is definatly the next idol your cham p sees clark is out so gold derby is rooting for the wrong guy the people will have their way

  6. I believe the finale will be between Nick and Jax. I used to think Clark would win because he has a great voice and beautiful puppy dog eyes like Lee (DeWyze) so he’d defeat Jax because of the “cute boy” vote. Nick is cute too but in a different way and I think it possible that Jax could beat him. I can see her doing that. Next out: probably Clark in a huge upset because his attitude last week was ridiculous and his song choices were seriously warped.

  7. Doesn’t matter, I still think Clark should win, JAX please we have enough pop princess’s and I wouldn’t at all buy her music, she is never consistent with her song’s, fast songs for her NO way! Slow is better, but she is not a marketable singer, just another cute blonde girl, not saying isn’t talented she may get there but it is and should always be about the singing, and if she wins I really am not going to watch Idol again, I will stick with The Voice cause those singers blow American Idol singers away.

  8. Clearly this sight is propaganda because Nick is obviously the most talented whole package next superstar. Anyone with eyes and ears can see that he is unbelievable talented both musically and vocally, he is humble, looks like a superstar and has a radio ready voice. Don’t let this nonsense stop your momentum Nick, your road to stardom in knocking!

  12. Nick will win it. Clark, unfortunately, sealed his own fate. he’ll be going home this coming Wednesday. You cannot stubborn AND give sloppy performances. If Nick doesn’t win, Rayvon will. Jax is interesting, there’s not enough people who like her, for her to be in the finale.

  13. I think Clark is safe .. but he’s got to pick great songs, emote more … and he will be fine. It’s fine to stick to your guns, but your recent performances have been average. Of course I would say Nick’s at best has been average (but is getting better).
