"Dim the lights."

Tonight, Ryan Seacrest will say those three little words another time as American Idol is set to crown the winner of its 13th season. But will it be Caleb Johnson, the rocker, or Jena Irene, the radio-friendly pop diva? Who better to ask than Seacrest himself?!

"It's hard, man. They just felt like they were neck and neck," the Fox hit's host told E! News after Tuesday night's performance show. "I think it's really that tight. I think it could go either way."

But Seacrest was eventually able to pick one contestant that he think will edge out the other to be crowned the winner and be showered with confetti tonight. Press play on  the video above to find out who he thinks will win Season 13!

We also chatted with Caleb and Jena after their big night to find out how they were feeling about their three performances.

"Everything was such a whirlwind; it was just amazing and electric. It was just nuts," Caleb told us, while Jena gushed, "I remember just looking at when I started singing my first song and thinking to myself, ‘How am I here?!' I'm performing in front of stadium of feeling.' It was just the best feeling in the world."

And while Caleb wasn't able to pinpoint just one moment as his favorite throughout the season, Jena picked a time of hardship as her standout memory. 

"When I performed "Decode" because I was a new wild card at that point and I was still really proving myself to America that I do deserve to be in this competition," Jena recalled of her Top 11 performance.

American Idol's finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox.
