After two hours of performances and theatrics, Caleb Johnson is the American Idol Season 13 champion! He bested Jena Irene to win, making his third time auditioning the charm.

Caleb Johnson auditioned for Seasons 10 and 11, making it to Hollywood each time. Each time he was sent home having made it farther than his previous year.

Lucky number 13 proved to be his season after taking a year off to focus on his music career in Asheville, NC and decide who he wanted to be as an artist. And who does he want to be?

A rock god.

Caleb has treated audiences to classic rock and roll numbers all season, earning himself a following which tonight crowned him their king.

Congrats, Caleb Johnson!

What do you think, THGers? Did Caleb Johnson deserve to win American Idol?
