We'd like to introduce you to the newest American Idol!
After what has seemed like years, Fox and the voting American public have finally crowned the newest singing sensation. Wednesday night's two-hour broadcast was filled with A-list appearances and far too many commercial breaks as the remaining two season 13 finalists Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson awaited their fate.
Alright, Idol fans, send your tweets of congratulations to….
Not only has Caleb won the title of the newest American Idol, a huge cash prize, and a record deal, he and runner-up Jenna have also won Ford Mustangs.
In other shocking news, judge Harry Connick Jr. finally gave a standing ovation not once, but multiple times during tonight's broadcast. We have a feeling he is just as happy as we are to be done with the two-a-week live shows. (It's been more than 13 weeks with NO double eliminations people!)
Are you happy that Caleb won season thirteen of American Idol? If not, who do you think deserved the top spot? Sound off in the comments below!
