Who Will Win American Idol 2014: We Make Our Season 13 Prediction!
American Idol wraps up Season 13 today, and that can only mean one thing: Tonight, we find out who our 2014 winner is! And just like we predicted last week, we still think it's going to be Jena Irene Asciutto.
Her incredible performances last week continued to impress us (and the judges) as she barreled through Demi Lovato’s “Heat Attack” like it was nothing. And then her reprise of Radiohead’s “Creep”? As if the first version of the song she performed earlier this season wasn’t awesome enough, she brought her A-game to the song that closed out last week’s performance show. Through performing the number again, she really managed to show her growth over the season. Way to go, Jena!
Another way she showed her growth? Last night’s performance of “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You.” We didn't think it was possible, but she made the classic Elvis song sound even more magical. So although opponent Caleb Johnson gave amazing performances — and we loved both coronation singles — we can only have one winner, and we think it will be Jena.
Caleb is obviously talented, and so is Jena. They’re on similar levels when it comes to vocal ability. However, we feel Jena has the better grasp on what it means to be an Idol. She has a great stage presence and she just feels like a star in the making to us.
Less than 12 hours stand between us and finding out who the winner is! If we’re this nervous, we can’t imagine how Caleb and Jena feel!
Who do you think will win American Idol: Jena or Caleb?
