LOS ANGELES, May 16 (UPI) -- Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene Asciutto are heading into next week's Season 13 finale of American Idol in Los Angeles.

Alex Preston was eliminated from the singing competition series Thursday night.

"I was pretty confident I was going home," he told The Hollywood Reporter moments after learning his fate. "I'm honestly surprised I made it this far, but it's all because of the fans. I'm so happy that people dug what I've been doing and it shows me that people are going to buy my record and see me on tour."

Ryan Seacrest is the host of the Fox show, while Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban are the celebrity judges.
