American Idol‘s staple Top 24 has become the Top 26 in the latest season, with the last remaining contestant recently revealed.
Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan gave the green light to Matt Wilson, Colin Stough, and Iam Tongi in the previous episode, much to their surprise. Now the 20 of the Top 26, the judges, and host Ryan Seacrest are in Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in Hawaii to get the rest of the singing competition underway.
There are plenty of contestants this season, many with their own social media following. Could some online popularity be the deciding factor in giving contestants an edge over the ones with less social media presence?
We can only wait and see if their endurance matches their social media numbers. Using their official American Idol YouTube performance videos, we rank the most likely contestant to win Season 21.
Scroll down below to see the contestants ranked from least to most probable to win as of this week. Remember that these rankings may change as social media metrics constantly fluctuate.
