The 2023 winner of “American Idol” is announced

American Idol has a new champion.

On Sunday night (May 21), after months of auditions, solo highs, goodbyes, duets, and travels to California and Hawaii, everything came to a climax as America decided on their Idol.

For those who were passengers for the 21st edition, the winner had already made his announcement months before. The grand finale provided evidence for what many people already believed.

Iam Tongi, Megan Danielle, and Colin Stough, the three finalists, got one final chance to wow the audience at the ABC special by doing solo and duet performances.

Millions of people were watching at home, and the stars did emerge. The screens were packed with performances by Keith Urban, Kylie Minogue, Ellie Goulding, Lionel Richie, TLC, REO Speedwagon, Pitbull & Lil Jon, and more.

Tongi and Danielle were the top two contenders that America selected

Tongi was the sole possible candidate.


The high school student from Hawaii who had a lovely voice and a terrible background recently won the hearts of Idol devotees. As he performed, Tongi’s reputation increased.

He sang “Cool Down,” “Making Memories of Us,” “Monsters,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” and a duet of “Making Memories of Us” and “Monsters” with James Blunt at the competition’s grand finale.

With a recording deal, one of the benefits of winning the yearly competition, Tongi may now launch his career.
