American Idol 13 – Finale Duets, Hunger Games Salute! (VIDEO)


The Top 13 are back in town to rehearse for next week’s American Idol 13 finale, and tonight they were in the Idol audience to watch their fellow contestants, Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson and Alex Preston compete for a spot in the final 2!

The big news: Ryan rolled out a few finale duet pairings! It seems like most of the Top 10 are going to have the opportunity to perform with a big star. So far:

  • CJ Harris and Dexter Roberts will perform with Darius Rucker
  • Jessica Meuse will perform with Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland
  • Malaya Watson will perform with John Legend
  • Sam Woolf will sing with Idol alum, Phillip Phillips
  • Jena Irene and the Top 13 girls will sing with Demi Lovato

Expect more pairings to be announced tomorrow.

More big news: Malaya no longer wears braces! Hilarious moment:  The Top 13 do the Hunger Games salute, in unison. Cheeky! Jessica compared the big “twist” that suddenly put the decision to save a contestant in the hands to something out of the Hunger Games. I hope producer, Per Blankens has a sense of humor.

Watch Ryan make the announcements alongside the Top 13, below.
