We are officially off and running singing on American Idol Season 13.

The finalists took to the stage as a group for the first time on Wednesday and the results were decidedly mixed.

Things looked bleak throughout the opening hour, with a case of the nerves seemingly hitting a number of contestants.

But a handful in the back half showed promise and the judges continued to excel, giving us hope that all is not lost for this once-great competition.

Watch all 13 performances now and then cast your vote below:

The results are in.

The real battle will soon begin.

On Thursday night, American Idol announced its final 13 contestants, with five men and women chosen by the audience and three more selected as Wild Cards by the judges.

The remaining hopefuls reside from across the country (and include the first openly gay contestant in series history), but all share one common goal: becoming the next American Idol champion.

Which one of these lucky 13 will it be?

Caleb Johnson
Caleb Johnson is a 22-year old native of North Carolina. He is doing very well for himself on American Idol.
