American Idol season 17 winner

AMERICAN IDOL – “217” – The journey to find the next superstar continues as the remaining five Idol hopefuls leave it all on the stage, singing their hearts out to win America’s vote and land themselves a spot in the coveted “American Idol” season finale. In this episode, each contestant will perform three songs: a pick from in-house mentor, Bobby Bones; a song dedicated to their heroes in honor of Mother’s Day; and a selection from Elton John’s world-renowned catalog. To help prepare for this week’s theme, contestants will be the first to watch the highly anticipated feature film “Rocketman,” an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. The jam-packed Idol episode airs SUNDAY, MAY 12 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT/5:00-7:01 p.m. PDT), on The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Eric McCandless)

And the winner of AMERICAN IDOL season 17 is…Laine Hardy.

The second time was indeed the charm for Hardy who initially competed in season 16; in fact, he never intended to audition in 17 but came along to support a friend. Instead, he ended up winning it all.

Coming in second was Alejandro Aranda. Madison VanDenburg was eliminated earlier in the three-hour performance.
