‘American Idol’ Top 8 predictions: Alex Preston and Caleb Johnson battle for the win!

The “American Idol” battle is officially on!

On the left we have Alex Preston, who’s topped our “American Idol” prediction charts the last two weeks in a row for who you think will win Season 13. Alex has 13/8 odds to win.

And on the right there’s Caleb Johnson, who was your pick to win during Top 10 week and is now holding steady in second place just behind Alex. Caleb has 23/10 odds to win.

Alex and Caleb are so popular with America that neither singer has been in the bottom three yet. (Neither has Jessica Meuse.)

This bodes well for their ultimate chance to win, as none of the previous 12 winners of “American Idol” were ever in the bottom three prior to Top 7 week.

This essentially means that anybody who’s been in the bottom so far is out — sorry Jena Irene, Malaya Watson, Sam Woolf, Dexter Roberts and C.J. Harris!

This weekend, I chatted with Gold Derby founder Tom O’Neil on all things “Idol,” including who we think will win and who we want to win. (Watch the video below)

Tom thinks the winner will be Alex or Caleb, but he wants Jena to win, proclaiming “I’m on your side, baby!”

I think the winner will be Caleb, but I’m personally rooting for Alex. As I mention in the slugfest, Alex’s “Story of My Life” cover is “the only song this season that I rewound and watched again.”
