Last night (April 7), America chose the winner of “American Idol’s” 15th and final season.
La’Porsha Renae and Trent Harmon were the final two contestants, with the winner being Harmon. But this year, for the show’s farewell season, both finalists received record contracts, and La’Porsha has signed with Universal Music Group’s imprint, Motown Records.
“Because of the overwhelming fan demand and success of the farewell season of ‘American Idol,’ we have made the decision to sign both the winner, Trent Harmon, and runner-up, La’Porsha Renae, to exclusive recording agreements,” Big Machine Label Group founder and CEO Scott Borchetta tells Billboard. “I can’t think of a better way to bring this American institution to a close. Everyone at the Big Machine Label Group, the Universal Music Group and Motown Records are so thrilled with the outcome and can’t wait to get to work.”
I knew this wouldn’t be the last we would hear from Renae!
