Show support for your favorite artist in the Top 14 of “American Idol” by casting a vote for them during the first live show of season 17 on Sunday, April 14. We have dug some digging and discovered the various methods by which you can make your voice heard. Scroll down for all the voting details.
As he did for 15 season on FOX, Ryan Seacrest is hosting this revival on ABC. The three returning judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — decided on the finalists. Which of these 14 artists — Alejandro Aranda, Laci Kaye Booth, Walker Burroughs, Evelyn Cormier, Wade Cota, Dimitrius Graham, Laine Hardy, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon Ashley Hess, Eddie Island, Uché Ndubizu, Alyssa Raghunandan, Riley Thompson and Madison VanDenburg — do you want to see go all the way and win? (If you haven’t yet, be sure to vote in our poll and then make your predictions at the bottom of this post.)
You can cast up to 10 votes per artist in each of three ways: online at ABC.com; in the official app, which is available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play; and via text. You must be at least 13 years of age and in the U.S., Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands to vote online or in the app. This means that if you are very determined, you could vote up to 30 times in total for your favorite finalist.
Voting opens when the show starts on the east coast at 8 p.m. (that is 5 p.m. on the west coast) and closes on Monday morning at 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT. If you want to vote by text, here are the numbers that you need to know. (Spoiler: The Top 14 are listed in order of appearance by artist.)
