The stakes are high for tonight’s American Idol Season 13 grand finale and we don’t just mean for the two contestants still in the running for the title. Jena Irene Asciutto and Caleb Johnson might be sweating it out somewhere on an L.A. soundstage but almost equally as nervous are all the folks with money on the line!
Who’s the right contestant to put your chips on if, you know, you’re looking to win right along with the Season 13 champ? We consulted Entertainment Betting Odds and as of this morning, just hours before the final episode kicks off on Fox at 8 p.m. ET, it’s a close race.
Jena’s got 4 to 7 odds against her Meatloaf-esque opponent stands at 5 to 4 for. So by no means has Caleb totally pulled ahead, but Sin City seems to think he’s the pick of the night.
We actually don’t fully agree with Vegas, particularly after the magical trio of performances the high school senior and wild card pick treated us to last night. Then again, Caleb’s rendition of “Dream On” had us dreaming all night, and was all the more impressive since the poor guy’s recovering from bronchitis. What can we say? It’s anybody’s game in our book!
Which contestant do you think has Lady Luck’s help? Make your pick in the comments!
American Idol airs tonight, May 21, at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
