American Idol 2022: Top 20 Poll Results and Predictions

(ABC/Christopher Willard) JAY

American Idol 2022 will go LIVE tonight (April 18) for the first time this season. The Top 14 will be revealed. Ten will advance based on viewer votes, while the judges choose 4 wildcards. Everybody singers, whether the contestant is performing a “victory song” or singing for their lives. Oh boy!

You all voted on your favorite performances and who YOU believe will be eliminated tonight. 

Your Top 3 performances were from 1) Leah Marlene, who delivered a truly spectacular performance of “Heal.” 2) Fritz Hager’s emotional rendition of Billie Eilish’s “when the party’s over” and 3) Huntergirl’s original song “Heartbreak Down.” It’s safe to say that these three singers will advance to the Top 14 based on viewer votes.

  1. Leah Marlene – Heal – 16.99%

You also had the opportunity to predict the six contestants who will go home tonight. It’s tricky, because it involves second guessing the producers/judges saves. For instance, under no circumstances will Platinum Ticket holder Jay be going home this week. And the judges might save comeback kid, Jacob Moran, who appears to be on the bubble.

Our Blake Busch sent me a compilation of social media rankings as of an hour after the show ended last night, including stats from Youtube, Facebook and Instagram. Here’s how the contestants shook out. He mentioned in the email that Dan and Lady K are really high on Facebook but struggling in other platforms.

  1. Hunter
  2. Noah
  3. Leah
  4. Emyrson
  5. Fritz
  6. Nicolina
  7. Christian
  8. Mike
  9. Allegra
