“American Idol” viewers are almost evenly divided as to which of the two most recently eliminated contestants — Jurnee Siani and Catie Turner — was robbed of a place in the Top 5. Siani gets 51% of the vote in our poll while Turner takes 49% of the total tally. If you haven’t cast your ballot yet be sure to do so at the bottom of this post.
Both of them saw their time on this ABC revival of “American Idol” come to an end on the May 6 episode that showcased the Top 7. Each of the finalists sang one song from the catalog of singer/songwriter Prince and another from the year that they were born. With this show airing live nationwide, all of America got to vote for their favorites in real-time, with the results revealed by host Ryan Seacrest at the end of the episode. The top five vote-getters — Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Maddie Poppe and Michael J. Woodard — moved on while the bottom two were bounced from the competition. (Who will win season 16?)
Take a look at the list of songs that Siani and Turner have sung throughout the competition and then vote for the artist you will miss most as season 16 of “American Idol” moves on to the Top 5 on May 13.
