Jamie Zink, Staff Writer

Last Sunday May 19th, American Idol announced its Season 17 winner, Laine Hardy. Laine Hardy, an 18 year old boy born and raised in Louisiana, never would have imagined to be the next American Idol Winner. Season 16, Laine had auditioned and made it to Hollywood, but never actually made it to the live shows. With a lot of determination, he devoted part of his life to getting his voice where he wants it. The summer before Season 17, Laine had taken singing lessons to perfect his voice and because of this he found himself as an American idol Winner. If you missed the Season 17 finale, no need to worry! Bellow are the songs of each contestant sung in the finale:

  • Alejandro Aranda- Millennial Love (Original)
  • Alejandro Aranda- Tonight (Original)
  • Laine Hardy- Home by Marc Broussard
