After 75,000 auditions, hundreds of Golden Tickets and countless performances, it came down to two – Caleb Johnson vs. Jena Irene – and a single song on Tuesday's American Idol.
The performance finale at the Nokia Theatre featured major contrasts – the old-school rocker with mega pipes against the teen powerhouse and first female wild-card pick to make it this far – as well as more drama than usual, as Johnson battled not only Irene but also an injured vocal cord.

There was no place like home on Wednesday's American Idol, which celebrated its 500th episode with well wishes from former winners, as the final three visited their hometowns and had memorable performances in the lead-up to Tuesday's finale.
Powerhouse teen Jena Irene, hard rocker Caleb Johnson and indie artist Alex Preston each sang three songs, the first one selected by Randy Jackson, the second one by the judges and the final one picked by their hometowns.
It was not an easy night for Johnson, who was forced to sing with a small vocal cord hemorrhage that a doctor compared to "a runner running with a badly bruised ankle."
