American Idol winner 2023

Iam Tongi was crowned the winner of American Idol 2023. The 18-year-old from Hawaii captured the hearts of viewers with his soulful voice and his heartwarming story. Tongi’s father passed away just months before his audition, and he dedicated his performance of “Hallelujah” to him.

Tongi’s win was a surprise to many, as he was not considered one of the frontrunners going into the finale. However, he blew away the judges and the audience with his performances of “I’ll Be There” by The Jackson 5 and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon & Garfunkel.

Tongi’s victory is a testament to his talent and his determination. He is a true inspiration, and he is sure to have a bright future ahead of him

American Idol Winners

American Idol is a singing competition that has been on the air since 2002. The show has helped to launch the careers of some of the biggest names in music, including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Adam Lambert.

The past 10 years have been a great time for American Idol. The show has produced some incredible talent, and the winners have gone on to have successful careers. I am excited to see what the next 10 years hold for American Idol.
