One week from now, Season 13 of "American Idol" will be over. Actually, it will have been over for a day, since "Idol" will be shifting to its usual Tuesday/Wednesday Finale schedule, which allows FOX to slip in the season-closer on the last night of the 2013-2014 Nielsen season. Back when "American Idol" was the Biggest Show In All The Land, that used to be really meaningful.
Now? Meh. But it doesn't hurt.
Tonight's show will feature our Top 3 results, a performance by Scotty McCreery, plus long and tear-filled clip packages about the joys of visiting FOX affiliates in New Hampshire, Michigan and North Carolina.
Settle in and enjoy the hour-long ride...
