It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down to predict which singer will win Season 15.
As of this writing, Trent only has 4/1 odds (19% chance) of winning this farewell season of “Idol.” That puts him at the bottom of our winner’s chart behind frontrunner La’Porsha Renae (10/11 odds) and dark horse Dalton Rapattoni (3/1 odds).
As a refresher, last week Trent sang “Tennessee Whiskey” as his hometown dedication, “Drink You Away” as Scott Borchetta’s choice and “Waiting Game” as the judges’ choice. If you think these three performances are enough to get Trent into the Final 2, then be sure to make or update your predictions before 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET tonight.
La’Porsha’s three songs were “Glory” (hometown), “Stay with Me” (Borchetta) and “Hello” (judges), while Dalton’s tunes were “Calling You” (hometown), “Dancing in the Dark” (Borchetta) and “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (judges).
At the start of tonight’s show, either Trent, La’Porsha or Dalton will be eliminated in third place, and then the remaining two singers will each belt out a trio of tunes live at the Dolby Theatre. Tomorrow night is the big “American Idol” series finale send-off that’s sure to be chock-full of surprises and celeb cameos.
