'American Idol' 2014 Top 4 Results, Review: Wildcard 'Jena' Irene in Top 3? Caleb Johnson or Jess Meuse Going Home in Predictions [Watch Videos]

"American Idol" 2014 (Season 13) is only two weeks away from the finale. Based on the Top 4 performance night, it seems only the wildcard Jena Irene is safe. Alex Preston had a rough night, but Caleb Johnson or Jess Meuse could go home after the voting results are revealed.
Singers and judges Keith Urban (L), Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. (C) pose with host Ryan Seacrest (2nd R) and producer Randy Jackson at the party for the finalists of "American Idol XIII" in West Hollywood, California February 20, 2014.
American Idol Season 13 judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr gave mostly positive comments to the Top 4. Harry thought Caleb had a "phenomenal" moment and Jena's last number was "incredible." Keith and JLo gave Caleb and Jena Irene a standing ovation in two separate numbers.
Jena Irene Asciutto, 17, aced two out of the three songs she performed on the American Idol 2014 Top 4 night. AI judge Jennifer Lopez couldn't help herself after hearing Jena's take on Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love." The "I Luh Ya Papi" left her seat to give Jena a kiss on stage after her number.
Caleb Johnson, 23, was more compelling in his cover of Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed." It was arguably Caleb's best night. Many viewers of American Idol Season 13, however, were offended by Caleb's tactlessness, referring to fans as "retards." It may or may not affect the Top 4 voting results.
Jessica Meuse, 23, was the weakest link in this year's Idol Top 4. She was in the bottom two for two weeks in a row before Sam Woolf was voted out on May 1. The four of them performed three songs each, but Jess' only decent number was her interpretation of Lady Gaga's "You and I."
Alex Preston, 21, faced high expectations when it was announced he was singing Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours." His performance was not particularly stellar, though. American Idol 2014 viewers have been used to Preston's magic, but there was only a little hint of it throughout the Top 4 performance night.
Either Caleb Johnson or Jessica Meuse is going home this week on American Idol Season 13. Alex Preston was not particularly strong in his 'Break-ups and Make-ups' numbers. However, Alex has done quite enough to get a solid fan base at this point in the competition.
