Trent Harmon won American Idol last night much to the surprise of a lot of people—including the shocked judges! But despite  La’Porsha Renae’s loss she still landed a recording contract. And Trent is ready to ‘Work, work, work’ he told Access Hollywood, “I am fully aware and I acknowledged the fact that all that happened tonight was it placed me at the bottom of the next level up, and I’m going to keep that mindset until – until. So I’m super, super appreciative, but at the same time, I’m ready to go to work.”
