Last night, ‘American Idol’ crowned Caleb Johnson the winner of season 13. Third time was the charm for the 23-year-old from Asheville, North Carolina.

In the FOXlight’s Michael Tammero spoke to Johnson after his big win.

“Thank you so much for joining me on this crazy, wild, insane ride and I cannot wait to release my record,” Johnson said to his fans.

On the red carpet, Tammero’s interview with judge, Keith Urban was interrupted by none other than Paul Stanley from Kiss. The band performed at the finale last night ahead of their 40th anniversary tour.

Auditions for the next season of American Idol will be held on June 18th in Minneapolis.
