My radio pal, Neal, is on the air in the city of Asheville, North Carolina. I said to him once, has anyone ever heard of Asheville, North Carolina? Well, the latest season of ‘American Idol‘ has put Asheville on the map. Last night (May 21, 2014) we waited in anticipation before getting the results. And the winner is…Caleb Johnson, from Asheville, North Carolina!

Popcrush tells us:

The two finalists, Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson took the stage all night leading up to the announcement, performing alongside big names such as Paramore and Kiss. Finally, with less than ten minutes left on the show, it was time for the big announcement. Caleb and Jena looked nervous and excited as they waited for the big reveal. And we have to hand it to Jena, she looked genuinely happy for Caleb to take the win, even if it left her as runner-up.

Caleb rocked the stage with his brother’s favorite band, ‘Kiss’ and he celebrated his win by performing his debut single ‘As Long As You Love Me.’ It did take Caleb a little while to get the song started as he was very emotional. And wasn’t it nice to see the season’s contestants rush the stage to give the new winner lots of congratulatory hugs? We thought so.

You can expect Caleb’s first CD to drop on August 12. Head out a buy it, so you can continue to support your new American Idol.
