After a long 8 weeks, the American Song Contest has a winner!

Tulsa-born K-pop singer AleXa snagged 56 points from the national juries and a whopping 654 points from the public vote, totaling 710 points. She was presented with a golden glass microphone similar to the one given to the winner of Eurovision, and performed an encore of her song “Wonderland.”

Second place went to Colorado’s Riker Lynch who finished with a total of 503 points and third place to Kentucky’s Jordan Smith.

Washington State’s Allen Stone won the national jury vote with 105 points but only received 254 points from the public for a total of 359 points, landing in fifth place.

The jury votes were grouped by region and the douze points were given by contestants who previously performed in the competition but did not qualify for the finals. Virginia’s Almira Zaky, Hawaii’s Bronson Varde, and Wyoming’s Ryan Charles were among those presenting the jury results.

Here are the final results:
