After a nail-biting three-hour finale, Kahuku Hawaii’s Iam Tongi is the newest American Idol.
On today's season finale of the singing competition series, 18 year old Tongi was crowned the winner following a stunning performance of his original song "I'll Be Seeing You."
He was up against Megan Danielle and Colin Stough, who placed second and third, respectively.
After host Ryan Seacrest crowned Tongi the winner, he sang "Don't Let Go" as his family, the judges and audience members swayed along and celebrated the feat.
Tongi previously brought the judges to tears during his audition, where he dedicated the song "Monsters" to his father, who died months before his audition.
