It’s the moment “American Idol” fans have been anxiously awaiting for weeks — the season 14 finale.

And in the words of Ryan Seacrest, the next “American Idol” is …

“Nick Fradiani! Nick is your new ‘American Idol!'” said Ryan Seacrest on “American Idol.”

Yes, Connecticut rocker Nick Fradiani was crowned the next “American Idol” Wednesday night, leaving competitor Clark Beckham in the dust.

But even though he was arguably the favorite to win it all, he looked completely shocked when Ryan called his name.

“I don’t know. I can’t think right now. Thank you guys so much. Thank you so much. This is amazing. The best day of my life,” said Nick.

Ryan called Nick’s big win “an incredible comeback,” and we have to agree.

Back during the top 24, he struggled to stand out amongst the other extremely talented singers from this season.

But as a writer for Billboard points out, “Over time, he became more and more certain of his strengths and worked hard to use the judges’ advice.”

But of course, not many other aspiring singers will get to experience “Idol” in all its glory like Nick here did.

Fox announced two days before the finale it will cancel the show next spring. “Idol” has graced our television screens since 2002.
