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."

Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. will return to the American Idol judges table next season, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
Dubbed "the New Dream Team" last fall, the trio have had a "fantastic" experience on the reality competition, says the source.
"They like and respect each other a lot. What you see on camera is exactly what you get when they're off – fun, playful but they all take this job very seriously."

After a week filled with drama – including a surprising elimination and contestant chaos – Wednesday's American Idol was filled with love and a spellbinding performance.
With a visit to their hometowns on the line, the Final Four sang three love songs, one about a breakup, a make-up and a dedication.
But Jena Irene had the memorable moment of the night (and likely the season) when she improbably channeled Elvis Presley, playing the piano and singing "Can't Help Falling in Love," a stunning, "spellbinding" performance that had Jennifer Lopez sprinting onto the stage to kiss the 17-year-old.

For their fifth annual We're All for the Hall benefit concert in Nashville on Tuesday, Keith Urban and Vince Gill decided to have a little fun with their fellow artists.
Instead of just having them perform their hits, they asked that each of the country stars singing in the show recount the stories behind their songs. "Fans love to hear the story behind the song, and country music is all about stories," Gill told PEOPLE Country. "I love the theme this year."
However, Carrie Underwood wasn't so sure.
