Who will win ‘American Idol’ in its first season on ABC? [POLL]

American Idol” finalized the line-up for the first live show on April 22 at the end of Monday’s episode when Ryan Seacrest revealed the seven artists from the remaining Top 24 to make the cut. These lucky seven join the same number who were announced last week. But which of these Top 14 will win season 16? Take a closer look at each of thes artists in the photos above and then vote for the winner of this ABC revival of “American Idol” at the bottom of this post and be sure to sound off on your favorite in the comments section.

All 14 of these contestants have survived a grueling process that began with winning over the three judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — at a regional audition and getting a ticket to Hollywood. A whopping 169 would-be winners made the trip to La La Land, before being cut to 50. That group competed both individually and in groups before the judges decided on the Top 24. Those two dozen artists had to sing both solo and in duets with celebrities and convince the three judges that they deserved a place in the Top 14.

Scroll down to see the names of the “American Idol” contestants who made it through to the Top 14. We’ve also listed the titles of the songs they sung well as their celebrity duet partners.
