After 15 seasons of seeking talent from small cities, American Idol named Trent Harmon it’s final winner last night. The show has been responsible for introducing us to some of our favorites such as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, & Jennifer Hudson, the show brought great opportunities to many, whether they won or not. Last night was full of nostalgia- from performances from previous contestants/ winners, to Simon Cowell making a surprise appearance alongside Paula Abdul & Randy, then getting serenaded by previous winners & contestants, to season 1 host, Brian Dunkelman taking the stage- 13.3 million viewers got all the feels.
