"My mind is so overwhelmed right now with so many different emotions. I really need to let it sink in. It hasn't sunk in yet," he continued. "I'm still processing it but it's been a crazy night."

Aranda has also since spoken out about coming in second place, telling Hollywood Life that he is very happy for Hardy.

"He just has to make tons of music," he shared. "And do everything to be the best that he can be.

"The whole experience was awesome," Aranda also said. "It means everything that I was able to do my own music and have people like it!"

Perry's fellow judge, Luke Bryan, also shared a message for Hardy, tweeting out, "[Laine Hardy] you are THE [American Idol] Congratulations. Happy for you, buddy. [Idol Finale]."


He later added in a follow-up tweet, "Tonight was incredible and this season was so much fun. Thanks to everyone for watching and voting. That's a wrap."
