My Top 10 Picks To Win American Idol Season 17

They are all so unique in different ways, and you can't help but love each and every single one of them.


With the Top 20 just being announced on American Idol, here are my top 10 picks. It wasn't easy to pick just 10, considering everyone this season has been so amazing and has truly brought the talent. They are all so unique in different ways and you can't help but love each and every single one of them.

Alejandro Arando

Alejandro's voice will send chills up your entire body and if his voice alone isn't enough his guitar playing in insane as well. He's amazing in every single way and he's everything an artist should be. All in all, he's a gift to the world of music.

Eddie Island

Aside from his voice, literally everything about him is so unique. Not only does he have a great voice, but his personality is awesome too! As Eddie would say, "Welcome to the island."

Laci Kaye Booth

Laci has a beautifully special sound to her voice that you'll want to hear over and over again. She's also been referred to as "the next Carrie Underwood." If that doesn't say it all, watch this video.

Laine Hardy

Laine has changed the game. He was a contestant last season, but since then he has grown leaps and bounds as a musician and has surprised us all. His country rock style will easily melt your heart.

Walker Burroughs

Walker is one of my personal favorites for his unique and extremely controlled sound. He really knows how to use his skills and style to truly showcase his talent. He makes every song his own and that's what an artist is supposed to do. I could listen to him over and over and you should too!

Wade Cota

Wade kills it. He knows how to captivate an audience. His voice has so many levels to it and it makes him that much more interesting. He's also extremely humble and has no idea how talented he is. You just can't help but like him.

Madison Vandenburg

Madison is so talented. She is someone I — even Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan — compare to Kelly Clarkson because of her looks, style, and incredible range. She digs deep and doesn't hold back at all!

Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon

Jeremiah has a stunning voice and knows how to prove his talent through his song choices. He puts so much emotion and passion in his performances. He will make you feel whatever he is feeling while singing and that's something so powerful as a musician.

Riley Thompson

Riley may be the youngest contestant this season, but she's definitely not letting that hold her back. She has such a beautiful twangy sound as a country artist and she's killing it.


Uche can belt that's for sure. He demands your attention and never holds back. He knows the style he's trying to convey and does a great job at showcasing it. He is bringing back the funk and I love it.

Thanks for reading my top 10 picks. Hopefully, you found some contestants you like too. So make sure to turn on American Idol on ABC to find out if my top 10 picks will actually make it to the top 10.

We Are a Human Race, Not A Political Race

It is time to we stop spreading our culture of hate.


Hate is a word that has begun to describe this generation and the actions of people in the world. Hate has crept into public speeches, social media, hanging presidents/decapitated heads and our hearts. It has blinded how we see one another and tainted the words we use to talk to others. Political parties are turning into cat fights over who is right and frankly ruining any chance of unity in this country.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.


You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.
