Remember: The American Idol 13 final performance airs TUESDAY MAY 20 at 8 pm and is only 1 hour long. The finale airs WEDNESDAY May 21 at 8pm!

Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene will face off for the crown! I’m hearing that Jena WON the post-show cointoss. I believe it’s safe to assume she chose to perform 2nd. Nope! According to a caption attached to this OFFICIAL FOX production still, Jena elected to go first.
