It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down to predict which two singers will be eliminated next.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that were derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Lee topped our elimination chart with leading 9/10 odds (53% chance) of going home tonight. And Avalon was right in line in second place with 7/2 odds (22% chance) of being ousted.
Following the eliminations of Lee and Avalon, here are the Top 6 singers heading into next week’s performance/results episode: Sonika, Tristan McIntosh, Trent Harmon, MacKenzie Bourg, La’Porsha Renae and Dalton Rapattoni.
Congratulations to Zach Attack and Tony Sterk for earning the top score in this week’s contest. They are two of 11 contest entrants to reap perfect 100% accuracy predicting all of the questions for this episode, though they broke the tie with their high 53,960 point scores thanks to locking in the best odds throughout the week.
Can YOU take down our top-scoring reader Zach Attack next week to earn bragging rights and a place on our Season 15 leaderboard? For the entire season so far, he has leading 84% accuracy and 55,276 points, but there are still many weeks left to play in our contest.
In our “American Idol” predictions center, you get to answer the following questions before each episode airs on Fox every Thursday at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET.:
Who will win ‘American Idol’?
Who will be in the bottom 2?
Which singer will be eliminated?
At the end of each week, the eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will be the leaderboard champ for the week, so it’s beneficial to keep coming back often and making/updating your predictions.
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.
Who’s going to be eliminated next? Making your “American Idol” predictions is fun and easy. Just log into your Gold Derby account (or you can register for a free account via Facebook) and then start casting your votes to the right or at the bottom of this post.
