On Tuesday, May 20, the Top 2 performed in a one hour performance show which included their newly recorded singles, their choice of a previous song that they performed on the show and Simon Fuller's song choice.

Then on the live results show airing Wednesday, May 21, Jena Irene was eliminated and Caleb Johnson was announced as the Season 13 American Idol winner.

I spoke with Caleb Johnson on the red carpet right before he entered the finale results show.
