Rocker takes the victory in season finale of TV talent show...
Caleb Johnson has triumphed in the season finale of American Idol - beating Jena Irene to the coveted title.
The 23-year-old rocker, who hails from North Carolina, delivered impressive renditions of Dream On, Maybe I'm Amazed and As Long As You Love Me to clinch the talent show crown last night.
"This is crazy," he declared after hearing the good news from show host Ryan Seacrest.
And as well as seeing the two hopefuls perform three songs apiece - the audience was also treated to turns from John Legend, Kiss, Demi Lovato and Lady Antebellum.
Judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr also teamed up for a performance - with show veteran Randy Jackson joining in.
