The 'American Idol' Top 3 Contestants Are Revealed! The Finale Competitors are No Surprise
We're nearing the end of American Idol Season 14 and we finally know who will singing in the finale. Jax, Nick Fradiani, and Clark Beckham will all be competing for the title of American Idol next week — and it's going to be a tough fight. With this announcement, though, comes a bittersweet goodbye. After an incredible run on this show, Rayvon Owen, 23, was finally eliminated — sad but certainly not shocking.The Top 3 contestants have brought out their best performances the past few weeks and have rightfully earned the spots in the finale. Though there's a pretty clear winner (sorry guys), it could still be anyone's game.
It's no secret that Jax, 19, is favored to win this season. But the guys definitely still have a chance. Nick Fradiani, 29, has stood out more than ever the past few weeks. After seemingly coasting through this game on his good looks, he made really great song choices and established himself as a powerful performer. His performances tonight were his strongest ever — and might have been the strongest selection of songs of any performer tonight. Fradiani has become the smooth singing pop-rocker this competition needed, and he has certainly edged his way into the top 2 — threatening Jax's shot at the title.
The once favored Clark Beckham, 22, has seemingly fallen from grace over the past weeks. Fradiani's rise has been his fall — since the two have the exact same style. Beckham's also chosen poor song selections for himself, since he's tried a little too hard to stick with unfamiliar classics. Though he still has a dedicated fan base and shot at the title, his chances aren't as high as they were early on in this game when he was all anyone could talk about. He's at the bottom of the top and it would be a big surprise if he took home the win.
So, there you have it. We are one week away from finding out the Season 14 winner of American Idol. Will Jax be the big winner? Or will the guys steal her glory? We'll have to wait until the finale to find out!
