After three months of live competition, we have finally made it to the last two men (or girl) standing on American Idol. With Jena, Alex, and Caleb all giving three solid performances Wednesday night against nerves, drums, hydraulic lifts, and bronchitis, it would be a controversial choice no matter who America had picked.

WARNING! Spoilers ahead about tonight’s elimination!

Alex Preston was voted out and just missed his chance at being the next American Idol. It’ll be a rock-off between Jena and Caleb for the title now.

Full recap coming soon! UPDATE: Here it is.

Reminder: Next week’s finale shifts to a one-hour show Tuesday night and the two-hour grand finale on Wednesday, both starting at 8 p.m. on Fox.
