If YouTube popularity translates into votes, Billy Gilman could run away with the Season 11 title on The Voice.

As of Saturday evening, Billy’s Voice performances have been viewed more than 24 million times on the show’s YouTube channel.

That’s 7 million more views than Wé McDonald has received, more than twice as many as Sundance Head and more than five times the number for Josh Gallagher.

Of Billy’s nine performance night covers on the show, six have topped 1 million views. Wé McDonald has topped 1 million views four times, Sundance three times and Josh just once.

Billy also remains the show’s social media leader on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

But, remember, his numbers are somewhat inflated because he came to the show with a broader base of support than the show’s other three finalists.

In the past week, Josh has actually picked up the most followers on Twitter, Wé has attracted the most new followers on Instagram and Sundance had gained the most new likes on Facebook.

All the numbers as of Saturday night appear below. The number in parenthesis behind the social media numbers indicate the gain for each artist since last week.

The Top 4 take the stage during a two-hour performance finale Monday night at 8 p.m. The results will be announced during a two-hour season finale Tuesday at 9 p.m.
