American Idol crowned a new winner on the finale of its 13th season. Caleb Johnson won the competition and was able to perform with Kiss. There was certainly an impressive array of famous names and faces who turned up to appear in or watch the show and they posed for picture on the red carpet beforehand.
Caleb Johnson won American Idol season 13.
As USA Today reports, this is the third time Johnson auditioned for American Idol but the first time he got past the audition rounds. Yet third time's a charm and Johnson has proven critics wrong by winning the 13th season of American Idol.

With three contestants left, things are about to get personal.
Well, it’s about that time again – time to announce the top three contestants on this year’s round of American Idol. Where did the time go? So from last night’s performances we know that Jena Irene is pretty much safe – when you make Jennifer Lopez so excited that she starts dropping F-bombs on camera, it’s a pretty safe bet that you aren’t going home (well, not permanently anyway). Beware of spoilers ahead.
Randy Jackson had the spotlight before the finalists were announced.
Before the final reveal, however, we got to hear some of Randy Jackson’s oh-so-valuable critique (we’re guessing the show just had too much time leftover). Despite the fact that Jackson’s praise was largely unnecessary, it was nice to hear him being so unusually nice to the contestants, so we’ll let that slide.

All eight contestants remain in 'American Idol' after the judges decided to use their save on Thursday night's show (3rd April).
There are no more second chances left for the remaining contestants on American Idol after the judges decided to use their save on Thursday night (3rd April). After strong performances on the previous show, it was certainly going to be an evening of drama and possible dissent amongst the judges.
Randy Jackson correctly predicted the five to gain the public's support and not enter the bottom three.
However, eight contestants are still remaining after the judges were unable to decide who should be eliminated when the bottom three - Malaya Watson, Sam Woolf and C.J. Harris - battled it out to remain in the competition.
Rumour has it, this year's finale will be held in the Big Apple for the first time.
American Idol's 13th season could be held in New York City, if there's any truth to the rumours currently flying around. The upcoming new season of the singing talent contest is preparing for launch but has beefed up its usual format and streamlined its panel of judges.
Season 12's Contestants Before They Were Whittled Away.
Apparently, plans are in place to have the final contestants battle it out on stage at the city's prestigious Madison Square Gardens in front of a giant arena audience of 8,000, according to THR. De-camping from L.A to NYC would represent a major move for the show, which has seen a decline in ratings to rival show The Voice in recent years.
Doesn't look like Mariah Carey enjoyed her time on 'American Idol.'
Forget sweatshops in India and slave labour camps in North Korea, Mariah Carey has seen for herself what working in supposedly hellish conditions is like. The R&B singer was interviewed by HOT 97 radio on Wednesday and, as she sipped her Champagne, she relived the atrocities of her single season on Fox's talent searching show.
Mariah Carey Compares 'American Idol' To Hell & Nicki Minaj To Satan.
"Honestly, I hated it," Carey said of her turn at judging the long-running singing contest. Speaking to Angie Martinez, she explained: "I thought it was going to be a three-person panel. They gave me a nice dangling monetary moment, and I was just like, 'Okay. Randy Jackson will be there; I've known him forever. He used to play bass for me. Like, this isn't a big deal. This will be nothing.'"

Fox finally ripped the bandage and called time on Minaj and Carey's Idol presence.
The Great American Idol eviction continues at full speed with Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey being the latest two to get the boot. Nobody is entirely shocked by the news though, as this seemed to be looming over the judges’ heads. With the last season, which ended with Candice Glover being crowned as the winner pulled in the lowest viewing figures of any American Idol year – with just 14.2 million people tuning in to watch the finale – it was clear something was amiss. Apparently the (truly impressive) level of conflict and drama that Minaj and Carey brought to the format, wasn’t enough to get the audience to pay attention. Rumors of firings and a complete restructuring of the judging panel have also been rampant ever since the show’s disappointing finale. It was only a matter of time.
Both Nicki and Mariah announced the news if their respective departures over Twitter and Fox released statements regarding both decisions, which, considering the circumstances, was the very least they could do.
"Mariah Carey is a true global icon - one of the most accomplished artists on the planet - and we feel extremely fortunate that she was able to bring her wisdom and experience to the 'American Idol' contestants this season," Fox said, via Reuters.
