Which MALE singer do you hope wins ‘American Idol’ Season 17: Laine Hardy, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, Logan Johnson … ? [POLL]

This year’s crop of “American Idol” finalists leans slightly more male than female, as there are 11 men in the Top 20 compared to only nine women. Of the nearly dozen male singers who’ve made it this far, which one do you hope ends up joining the “American Idol” winners list? Vote in our poll below and then be sure to defend your choice down in the comments section. Refresh your memory of the Top 11 male singers from Season 17 by clicking through our photo gallery above.

Laine Hardy comes into the season with one of the biggest profiles since he was a fan-favorite last year who got eliminated early. Among the notable newbies, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon has gotten a lot of screen time because of his personal story of his church family disowning him because he’s gay, Logan Johnson has been dubbed this season’s heartthrob, and Alejandro Aranda and Wade Cota have gone viral for their unique voices and stage presences.

There’s still plenty of time to get to know the the other top men of Season 17 — Walker Burroughs, Uche, Ryan Hammond, Dimitrius Graham, Eddie Island and Shawn Robinson — since “American Idol” is treating fans to special duet rounds on Sunday and Monday. These anticipated duets will feature all of the Top 20 finalists singing alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names. Which duets are you most looking forward to watching?
