“American Idol” brought out the red carpet for its star-studded season 13 finale on Wednesday. The highly-anticipated event was held at the Nokia Theatre in Hollywood.

Before the big show got underway, celebrities and “Idol” alumni alike posed for the cameras. Even though the Top 2 contestants, Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson, were likely anxiously awaiting the final results, they cheerfully posed on the red carpet together. The pair became close friends throughout the season, and will even be going to Irene’s promo together.

This season’s eliminated contestants like third-place finisher Alex Preston, Jessica Meuse, Majesty Rose, and Sam Woolf, also got a turn in the spotlight, posing for photographers. Like on all the “American Idol” finales, they’ll also get to perform, too.

“American Idol” alumni in attendance included season 11 winner Phillip Phillips, his runner-up Jessica Sanchez, and favorites of seasons past, like Casey Abrams, Blake Lewis and Haley Reinhart.

They were joined by some bonafide superstars, like Demi Lovato, Jane Lynch, Darius Rucker and Jennifer Nettles. Of course, the “American Idol” judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban walked the carpet, too.

As Gossip Cop has reported, “American Idol” season 13 began in January. It marked Lopez’s return to the show, and Connick and Urban’s judging debut. After months of competition, Irene and Johnson faced off on Tuesday night in a three-round battle, hoping to win enough votes to become the next “American Idol.”
