It’s been a long season, but “American Idol” is finally in the home stretch — or the hometown stretch. (Sorry. Had to.) The Season 13 Top 4 competitors — Caleb Johnson, Jena Irene, Alex Preston and Jessica Meuse — made it far, but only three could move on to the Top 3 hometown visit week. Who got the axe just before the end?
There was no ridiculous twist this week, so the Top 4 results show proceeded as normal. After the usual post-show awkward conversation, Ford commercial, useless assessments by Randy Jackson and some delightful banter between Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr., Seacrest got down to business.
The Bottom 2 were Alex and and Jessica (thankfully, Jena and Caleb were safe), and Jessica was the one to garner the fewest votes. The singer from Slapout, Alabama was sent packing — unfortunately, not on a private plane for a gigantic concert, but for post-elimination press (and then back to Los Angeles for the “Idol” finale).
