“American Idol” had a major results show on Thursday. The Top 3 of Season 13 was revealed!

Caleb Johnson, Jena Irene, Jessica Meuse and Alex Preston were all in the running to snag one of the positions, particularly because making the Top 3 comes with a huge prize. Each year, the finalists get treated to hometown visits, where the contestants return to their home for the first time in months and are feted in grand fashion by the locals.

Four people were left… and only three could get to take the trips. Based on viewers’ votes, Meuse was eliminated.

The singer was, understandably, in tears and quite upset. It wasn’t entirely a surprise, however, as she had up and down moments throughout the season, sometimes getting quite critical feedback from the judges.

On Wednesday, she had performed three songs, taking on “Since U Been Gone” by inaugural “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson, “So What” from Pink, and the Lady Gaga rock ballad, “You And I.” Unfortunately for her, the performances apparently failed to earn her enough votes.

Johnson, Irene, and Preston, of course, were pretty ecstatic at the results. In addition to the hometown visits, they’ll return to the “American Idol” stage next week for another night of three-round competition that will ultimately determine the Final 2.
