1. Preston Has Been Predicted as the One to Win it This Season

AmericanIdol.net has collected surveys and betting odds from different sites, which have all confirmed that Preston is at the top of the winner predictions list.

Based on our polls and the Vegas odds, this week we’ll have to call the most likely singer to be the one who won American Idol 2014 as Alex Preston. However, Caleb Johnson is still right on his heels and we could see him reclaiming the top spot.

His song was used in the CD “Voices for Heroes,” a benefit for Sandy Hook.[6] He won the “Open For MixFest” competition organized by a radio station to open for acts such as Backstreet Boys, Gavin DeGraw and Of Monsters and Men.

Impressive.
