As expected, Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson breezed into the Top 3 on American Idol Season 13 Thursday night.

That left Alex Preston and Jess Meuse standing on stage at the end of the results show, waiting to see who would be eliminated.

Voters wound up awarding the final spot in the Top 3 to Alex Preston, meaning he'll join Jena and Caleb in making a celebratory trip home this weekend.

Though eliminated, Jess got to close the show by singing her original, "Blue Eyed Lie." Earlier this year, she became the first contestant to ever sing an original song on a performance episode of the show.
