The first ever winner of the ABC series Rising Star, Jesse Kinch, has been crowned. Jesse beat out finalists Dana Williams, Audrey Kate Geiger, and Austin French during the shows finale.

There is still no word if the show will be greenlit for a second season. However judges Ludacris, Kesha, and Brad Paisley, along with host Josh Groban have ideas to improve the groundbreaking show if it will indeed continue.
