Last night, Caleb Johnson was announced as the winner of American Idol Season 13.  It was a star studded finale night.  It was a big year for our area as two local contestants, Ethan Harris of Garrattsville, New York and Kaitlyn Jackson of Norwich, New York made their marks on the show.

Ethan Harris made it to the Top 15 Guys on the singing competition and contestant, Kaitlyn Jackson, made it to the last solo rounds during Hollywood week.  Both contestants have been quite busy since their time on American Idol.  Singing, writing, meet and greets, presentations, gracing the cover of a magazine and more. Best wishes to both of them as they continue pursuing their dreams.

A good friend of Ethan Harris shared this video of his American Idol journey:



Kaitlyn's American Idol audition was a very popular one:
