16 May 2014
The two singers who will vie for the title of "American Idol" were revealed on the May 15 broadcast of "American Idol XIII."
During the telecast host Ryan Seacrest announced that Alex Preston received the fewest number of votes and was, therefore, eliminated from the competition. The remaining two finalists are Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene.
The Top Two finalists will compete one last time May 20 at the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE. The evening will be broadcast beginning at 8 PM ET on Fox.
The final show of the season, which will air May 21 beginning at 8 PM ET, will feature performances by Lady Antebellum, Aloe Blacc, KISS, John Legend, Demi Lovato, Jason Mraz, Jennifer Nettles, Paramore, Phillip Phillips and Darius Rucker as well as the announcement of the winner of the famed singing competition.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
