And then there were three. After a season full of great performances from some truly fantastic singers, it has come down to the final three singers on American Idol. But who will win? You’ll have to watch the show to find out.
The final three are Alejandro Aranda, Laine Hardy, and Madison VanDerburg. That these three are the last ones standing is not really a surprise. They have consistently thrilled fans this season and are simply fantastic. Alejandro is such an original talent, not only a great singer, but also a true virtuoso on the guitar and piano. On social media he’s definitely the favorite. The question is whether all the hype will lead to actual votes. Laine Hardy, on the other hand, definitely has the votes if not the social following. Honestly, Laine’s good looks and country twang are just the kind of thing America loves, (see The Voice). But I also wouldn’t count out Madison. Of the three she is definitely the best singer vocally. If the other two have an off night, Madison could pull off an upset.
This week Mel is out so our writer Kyle Montplaisir is filling in. Kyle is a real authority on these shows and has been watching long before Talent Recap was a glimmer in the überbosses’ eyes. We are putting money on our choices. Serious money: $20.
