American Idol is a popular singing competition that relies on audience voting to determine who will make it to the next round and ultimately be crowned the next American Idol. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to vote for your favorite contestant:
Step 1: Know when to vote
Voting typically begins on Sunday and Monday nights during the East Coast broadcast at approximately 8pm ET/5pm PT each night. However, voting times can vary, so check the American Idol app or website to find out when voting starts and ends each week.
Step 2: Choose your voting Method
You have three ways to vote for your favorite contestant: online at AmericanIdol.com/vote, in the American Idol app, or via text message.
Step 3: Register and log in
If you choose to vote online or through the app, you’ll need to register and log in to your ABC account. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up using your email address.
Step 4: Validate your email address
If you’re a new user or have recently changed your email address, you’ll need to validate your email address by entering a verification code sent to your email.
Step 5: Choose your favorite contestant
Once you’ve logged in and validated your email address, you can choose your favorite contestant to vote for. You can vote up to 10 times for each remaining contestant per voting method (up to 30 votes per week per contestant).
Step 6: Submit your votes
After choosing your favorite contestant, submit your votes online or through the app by clicking the “vote” button. If you’re voting via text message, simply send a text with the number of your chosen contestant to 21523.
Step 7: Reallocation of votes
If you change your mind, you can reallocate your votes online or through the app until the voting window closes. Be sure to hit “save” each time you make a change to your votes.
That’s it! Follow these steps to vote for your favorite contestant on American Idol and help determine who will be crowned the next American Idol. Remember to check the American Idol app or website for updates and voting times each week.
