Congratulations to Laine Hardy! He was crowned “American Idol” during last night’s finale!

It was a close call between Laine Hardy and Alejandro Aranda. But it was Hardy’s performance of Mark Broussard’s “Home”, Hank Williams’ “Jambalaya” and duets with Jon Pardi that won over the judges and voting audience.

Laine Hardy is a Louisiana native. At just 18, he has a whole life and career ahead of him.

We can’t wait to see where he goes from here!
