‘American Idol’ Top 5: Caleb Johnson predicted to be first rock winner in six years

With only five contestants remaining during Season 13 of “American Idol,” our predictions center is heating up with people casting their votes for who they think will win. (Make your own predictions by clicking here.)

As of the current Top 5 Week, your pick to win the “Idol” crown is Caleb Johnson who has leading odds of 5/4. If Johnson secures America’s vote, he’ll be the first rock star “Idol” winner since way back in Season 7 when David Cook claimed victory.

American Idol’ odds: Winner will be Caleb Johnson, Jena Irene or Alex Preston

Let’s take a look at the odds of winning for each of the remaining five contestants:

Caleb Johnson (odds of 5/4) – The male frontrunner has been in first place to win three times, during Top 10 Week, Top 8 Week (Part 2) and most recently Top 7 Week. He has never appeared in America’s bottom two or three. Caleb is 22 years old from Asheville, NC.

Jena Irene (odds of 3/2) – The rocker chick has topped our charts twice now, during Top 8 Week (Part 1) and Top 6 Week. She’s appeared in America’s bottom three only once, way back in Top 12 Week. Jena is 17 years old from Farmington Hills, MI.

Alex Preston (odds of 6/1) – The self-proclaimed “awkward” singer was your pick to win just once, during Top 9 Week. Like Caleb, he has never appeared in America’s bottom two or three. Alex is 20 years old from Mont Vernon, NH.

Sam Woolf (odds of 16/1) – The former frontrunner received top billing on our charts for the first three live weeks of the season: Top 13 Week, Top 12 Week, Top 11 Week. He was in America’s bottom three a trio of times and would have been eliminated during Top 8 Week if not for the Judges’ Save. Sam is 17 years old from Bradenton, FL.

Jessica Meuse (odds of 33/1) – The dark horse singer hasn’t yet appeared in the #1 position of any of our winner’s charts — is it because she’s too boring? She’s been in America’s bottom three two times, during Top 7 Week and Top 6 Week. Jessica is 23 years old from Slapout, AL.
