Who will win ‘American Idol’ season 17? Vote in our poll

American Idol” finalized the line-up for the first live show on April 14 at the end of Monday’s episode when Ryan Seacrest revealed the seven artists from the remaining Top 20 to make the cut. These lucky seven join the same number who were announced on Sunday. But which of these Top 14 will win season 17? Take a closer look at each of these artists in the photos above and then vote for the winner of this edition of “American Idol” at the bottom of this post. And be sure to sound off on your favorites in the comments section.

All 14 of these contestants 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 150 plus would-be winners made the trip to La La Land, before being cut to 40. That group competed both individually and in groups before the judges decided on the Top 20. This score of artists then 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 review the names of the 14 contestants who will sing on the first live show on April 14 and then cast your ballot for the most likely to win season 17. To help you make up your mind, we’ve listed the titles of the songs they’ve sung to date as well as their celebrity duet partners.
