WASHINGTON (TND) — There is a new American Idol after the three-hour finale Sunday night.
Iam Tongi, 18, was crowned the winner after his performance of his original song "I'll Be Seeing You."
Megan Danielle placed second and Colin Stough placed third.
After being crowned the winner he sang "Don't Let Go."
Tongi brought the judges to tears during his audition when he dedicated the song "Monsters" to his father who died months before his audition.
