Millions of eyes nationwide, along with over 7,000 fans inside the Nokia Theatre, will watch Farmington Hills native Jena Irene and North Carolina's Caleb Johnson compete in the FOX singing competition.

During Part One of the finale Tuesday night, Jena performed Florence and The Machines' 'The Dog Days are Over' and her single 'We Are One.' She also reprised her season staple 'Can't Help Falling in Love' by Elvis Presley.

Caleb performed Aerosmith's 'Dream On' and his single 'As Long As You Love Me.' He reprised his season staple 'Maybe I'm Amazed' by Paul McCartney.

Both finalists' singles are now available on iTunes.
