In the final American Idol results tonight, we’ll at last find out who will take home the crown for season 13. We’ll be covering all the action live as it happens in our American Idol recap of the season 13 finale!
Making our final American Idol prediction for who won American Idol 2014 was one of the toughest decisions we’ve ever had to make for a finale. Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene Ascuitto have been leading the top of the pack through most of the season 13 finals. They’ve traded front-runner status back and forth for weeks. The fan polls and social media stats are neck and neck for who should win American Idol 13.
No matter who won American Idol 2014 tonight and who just came in a very close second, we can see big things ahead for both of these awesome singers. Of course, we still want to know who walked away as the American Idol winner for season 13 anyway!
And here we go! Are you ready to find out your American Idol 2014 winner?
We start off with Jena and Caleb and Jena in the metal audition ‘sweat’ box from the start of the season. Then the Top 2 take the stage to give us a little “We Will Rock You” from Queen and “Just A Girl” from No Doubt and more for their opening number!
Sam Woolf with a cover of former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips’ “Home.” And then, here comes Phillip himself to sing with Sam! Jessica Meuse to join her on “Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus.
After Jennifer and Jess leave the stage, we cut to Randy Jackson telling Ryan Seacrest about the evolution of Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene. Randy says Caleb is “like family” and talks about how Caleb auditioned first way back in season 10 and he’s now like a “wrecking ball.” Jena was shy when she first came in and was a wild card, but now she’s grown by leaps and bounds.
Now we have the first of the American Idol judges on stage with Jennifer Lopez singing “First Love” and WOW what an outfit she is wearing!

Now we welcome two-time Grammy winner Darius Rocker on ‘True Believers” and then he’s joined by C. J. Harris and Dexter Roberts for “Allright.”
Another commercial break and hopefully we will have the final American Idol results in just a moment!

What a huge celebration! Everyone is hugging Caleb and he can’t even start singing his victory song because he is so emotional and everyone is crowding around him on stage. Finally he breaks free and starts singing and walking through the crowd to find his family for more hugs. Confetti flies down from the ceiling like it’s the Macy Day’s Parade!iTunes.
