And Rush Week has come to a close.

Arguably one of the cruelest cuts in American Idol history, this week saw the elimination of 17 contestants in a three-episode span. On Tuesday, five guys were sent home before they even got to sing, while Wednesday saw the ousting of five ladies.

And on Thursday's episode of the Fox reality hit, the Top 13 was finally revealed. So which 10 contestants did America send through? And which three contestants were chosen as judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr.'s wild card picks?

Kristen O'Connor, CJ Harris, Spencer Lloyd, Jena Irene, and Bria Anai all took the stage.
