After eliminating 3rd place finisher, Jax, the Final 2, Nick Fradiani and Clark Beckham, battled it out for the crown on Tuesday’s American Idol 14 final. Both singers wrapped up their performances with a debut of their coronation singles.
“I really love the lyrics and I’m really looking forward to putting all I’ve got into it,” said Clark about his song, “Champion.” The tune was penned by songwriters, Tom Douglas, David Hodges and Zac Maloy. Zac and David are no strangers to collaborating with Idol alums, having worked with David Cook, Kelly Clarkson and more.
