As of this writing, La’Porsha has leading 9/10 odds (53% chance) to win this farewell season. A triumph for La’Porsha would put her in the company of five other female champs from years past: Kelly Clarkson (Season 1), Fantasia Barrino (Season 3), Carrie Underwood (Season 4), Jordin Sparks (Season 6) and Candice Glover (Season 12). Scroll through our photo gallery below to see all past winners.

Meanwhile, Dalton Rapattoni and Trent Harmon are essentially tied for second place, say our contest entrants. Both male singers currently have 4/1 odds to win, though Dalton’s percentage (20%) is just slightly higher than Trent’s (19%).

Of the Final 3, it’s worth noting that Dalton was in America’s bottom two last week, while La’Porsha appeared in the bottom two yesterday. Could that mean that our third-place pick Trent actually has the most support from America overall? Either way, this final week of “Idol” is sure to be a nailbiter.

Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly.
