‘American Idol’ mystery: Is Jessica Meuse too boring to win?

On “American Idol” this season, Jessica Meuse is a complete mystery.

She’s one of this season’s quieter contestants, but did you know that she’s one of only three singers (along with Caleb Johnson and Alex Preston) to never appear in America’s bottom three?

Such an impressive feat would normally make Jessica a frontrunner to win the season. However, this 23-year-old native of Slapout, AL doesn’t have much of a vocal fanbase compared to the other singers, particularly when it comes to our racetrack odds. Is she too boring to win?

Jessica frequently comes in last (as she does this week) on our leaderboards for who’s out front to win Season 13. The highest she ever ranked was sixth, way back in Top 10 Week.

If Jessica does have a mystery fanbase that’s loyal enough to keep her out of the dreaded bottom three each week, perhaps everyone is underestimating her ultimate chances. Could she actually WIN the entire season?

Jessica is one of the few contestants this season to sing original material on the show, proving she’s much more than just a karaoke singer. Last week, she delivered a vulnerable renditon of her own “Blue Eyed Lie” and got praises from the judges. (Watch that performance below.)

Jennifer Lopez called the performance “perfect,” while Harry Connick Jr. compared her to Cher and Nancy Sinatra. Keith Urban, meanwhile, seemed a bit too focused on her shoulder movements to recognize the beauty of her original tune.
