How Do You Vote On 'American Idol'? Here's How To Help Your Favorite Win

There are two very important things to vote for in 2016. The first is the presidential election that takes place in November. The second — equally important, might I add — thing to vote for this year is the American Idol finale. On Wednesday, La'Porsha Renae and Trent Harmon took to the Idol stage to convince viewers that they deserve to be the next American Idol. Both of them were amazing, but amazing doesn't win you the title. Voting does — fan voting. So, if you want one of these two to win, you have to vote. And guess what, voting for American Idol has never been easier.

Wednesday proved to be one of the best shows of the season. For their final songs, Trent sang "Chandelier," while La'Porsha sang "Diamonds." Both performers received rave reviews from the judges, truly proving that this competition is neck-and-neck. If you've never been a voter for American Idol, there truly is no better time to pick up your tablet, cell, landline, laptop, whatever, because you may never get another chance to vote (remember, this is the series finale we're talking about).

So, how do you vote? Here are all of your options to help your favorite win American Idol.
