American Idol Recap: Who's Going Home?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The time has come for American Idol to reveal the Season 13 Top 3. Those remaining contestants will get the chance to go home and see their family and friends this weekend, so tonight is a pretty big deal. 

Who will it be? Let's find out now...

Farewell, Jessica Meuse

The first person to head to their hometown for a visit is...no idea. Ryan faked us out and presented Harry with a tray of beignets. Delicious. But not the information we're looking for.

(J.Lo looks positively repulsed by the carbs on the tray in front of her. Harry chucks them into the crowd. They're getting all wild and crazy up in there.)

Randy Jackson called Jena Irene's "Can't Help Falling In Love With You" one of the best performances in Idol history. Caleb Johnson, he thought, killed it. Jessica Meuse​ nailed it at the end. Alex Preston was on the money.

Then he made a football metaphor that only sort of makes sense. "It's 4th and goal..." Uhh...it would be 4th and goal if we were going straight to the finale, but okay, Randy Jackson. I think you mean 4th and 10, but you go on with that incorrect metaphor.

Jena Irene is the first to get a hometown visit. Caleb Johnson will be headed back to Asheville, North Carolina for a hero's welcome.

Alex Preston is the final member of the American Idol Season 13 Top 3 which means Jessica Meuse​ is heading back to Slapout, Alabama to stay.

Caleb Johnson
Well done, Caleb Johnson! He's advanced to the final 13 on American Idol.

I'd like to say I called it, but that'd just be bragging.

What do you think of tonight's American Idol results? Are you shocked that Jessica Meuse is going home?
