Here are the top 5 performances from Idol's big night!
1. Demi Lovato and the Idol girls! Demi should bring these ladies on the road with her! The pop star, and former X Factor judge, performed Neon Lights and I Don't Really Care with the top 13 Idol female finalists.
2. Judges Perform! With Harry Connick, Jr. behind the piano, and Keith Urban and Randy Jackson on guitars, Jennifer Lopez sang True Colors and Go On Your Way. This is the first time in Idol history that all the judges have performed together.
3. KISS' New Band Member? Idol winner Caleb Johnson shared a mic with Gene Simmons, performing KISS' hits Love Gun and Shout It Out Loud.
