'American Idol' winner, Caleb Johnson, goes to prom with runner-up, Jena Irene

By Erica M. Szkola,

For those of you who missed it, season 13 American Idol runner-up Jena Irene Ascuitto asked winner Caleb Johnson to prom on the show, and he said yes!

At first, the question was all in good fun as they joked and reenacted the prom on the live show a few weeks before the final results were revealed. But yesterday, the friends really did go to her Detroit high school prom together, CBS Detroit reports.

"It was a joke at first. My mom was joking about it and I was like, 'Huh, that could be fun.' And then we ended up being the last two so I'm like, 'Do you want to just go to prom together,' and he's like, 'Alright, let's do it,' and it happened," she said.

Ascuitto wore a strapless cream colored gown, but Johnson chose to stick to his rocker persona, ditching the tux for black pants and a leather jacket.

According to People, Johnson made time to attend the prom before preparing to head back to Los Angeles to start working on his new album later this week. Both he and Ascuitto will be in the American Idol Tour, set to kick off next month in New York.
