The full-time student from Maryland won the fan vote and was declared the champion over runner-up John Glosson on Thursday night. He receives a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

Both Rome and Glosson were mentored by Jennifer Nettles. Jason Farol, who finished third, was coached by Kelly Clarkson.

Rome followed up on his victory by singing the Stevie Wonder hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” as ticker tape fell from the ceiling and all four mentors — including John Legend and Robin Thicke — celebrated on stage.
