‘American Idol’ frontrunners: Ada Vox, Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner and Jurnee lead Top 14 on season 16

It took five weeks of episodes on the “American Idol” revival on ABC but we finally have the top 14 who will sing for your votes beginning on April 22. We asked you which of these are the early favorites to win season 16, which is hosted by Ryan Seacrest. Four of the finalists – Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Jurnee and Ada Vox — are the only ones to register double digits in our poll. Each was a clear favorite for at least one of the three judges: Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.

None of the other 10 other artists in the Top 14 — Jonny Brenns, Marcio Donaldson, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Garrett Jacobs, Mara Justine, Dennis Lorenzo, Maddie Poppe, Michelle Sussett, Catie Turner and Michael J. Woodard — merited more than nine percent of the vote. Are we underestimating one of these talents?

If you haven’t voted yet, be sure to cast your ballot in the poll at the bottom of this post. To refresh your memory, take a read of our recap of the songs they performed at both the Top 50 and Top 24 stages of the competition well as their celebrity duet partners at the latter.
