Below is a list of singles released by former American Idol finalists in 2016.

Now, I have only listed stand-alone songs and tracks from albums that haven’t been released yet. In other words, if a single was released from an album or EP, you’ll find that mention on the 2016 Idol albums and EPs page.

I’ve also listed tracks by Idol finalists from multi-artist soundtracks.

It’s entirely possible that I’ve missed some singles, especially since some of the finalists have changed their stage names since Idol or joined/formed a band.

If so, please let me know by emailing me at or by commenting below.
