It’s down to the wire on “American idol” ,  as this season’s top 3 finalists are revealed. Following last night’s elimination of another Idol hopeful, the finalists now head into next week’s big finale where they will sing their hearts out for America’s vote.  Fox’s Adam Housley has the latest on season 14. It was a big night for the final 4 contestants, performing one last time before next week’s grand finale and the crowning of this year’s American idol. “Next week is the last season. It doesn’t even feel like, what, it happened in four seconds. Everything’s over already.”  “ I feel like I started this show a year ago. It was October when I auditioned but same time it’s like a blur.” Each hopeful had to sing 3 different songs, one picked by mentor Scott Borchetta, another chosen by their fans at home, and the third by the judges. The night also recapped the contestants’ hometown visits, complete with parades, concerts, and some much needed creature comforts. “It was a wild experience. It was, probably the best day of my life in terms of seeing so many supportive people come out.”  “It was (makes hand gesture) I walked out of the car, first thing I did was break into tears. I couldn’t handle the wave of excitement and support and intensity that I got from my home base.”  “My tank has always been full and I’ve always been pedal to the metal but going home it’s like it gave me a new type of fuel. Now I’ve got jet fuel.” Unfortunately, 23 year old Rayvon Owen’s return to the Idol stage was short- lived.  As Wednesday night’s bottom vote-getter, Owen was sent home with only one week left to go.  “It’s bittersweet because I look back at everything I’ve done, how much I’ve grown, I feel like a winner.”  “I’ve stood up with Rayvon for so many weeks, it was tough to say actually goodbye to him this week.” Now it’s moving time for the Idol set, relocating to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, where Clark, Jax and Nick will perform in front of 3400 fans at the finale.  And everyone is ready. Beckham says: “I’m so determined. So full of fire and energy. We’ve got a lot of work to do and I wouldn’t have it any other way.” Fradiani says: “There’s no real nerves or anything anymore. It’s just going out and doing what you’re supposed to do. It’s going to be crazy.” In Hollywood, Adam Housley Fox News.
