Given that there are numerous hit singers on the show this season, voting is extremely important. For those who might need some help, a single fan can vote up to 30 times. Thanks to American Idol giving fans three ways to vote, each person can vote using a certain method ten times. For voting, fans can either visit the American Idol website, download the American Idol app, or simply text 21523. Again, each method of voting allows a single fan to vote up to ten times. If using all three – that’s 30 votes.

‘American Idol’ Favorite Would Love To Be The Next Judge

With Perry leaving the show after the season, many fans wondered who would take their place. There have been several names brought up, but none have been picked. And the recent person who would love to sit at the judge’s table is none other than Fantasia. Known for winning season 3 of the show, she recently discussed the chance to return as a judge. 

Speaking with ET, Fantasia admitted, “I’m gonna be honest, I would love to. I think that those kids, when they’re coming into the game, I think that they need somebody to come in and not only show them how to sing a song, but how to handle the business because it’s a lot.”
