American Idol wrapped up its final episode on Thursday night, crowning Trent Harmon, from Mississippi, its last grand winner. Harmon beat out another fan favorite La’Porsha Renae to take the season 15 title and a recording contract.
The 22-year-old Renae graciously accepted her defeat. She’s a single mother who overcame domestic abuse to compete. She’s also from Mississippi.
Harmon chose “Falling” as his coronation song, one of three performances that he gave during Wednesday’s broadcast. His name will now be added to the list of not only 15 “Idol” winners.
Before the winner was crowned, the two-hour American Idol Season 15 finale featured appearances by every single winner in the show’s history.
