The winner of Season 2 of American Idol on ABC will be announced on the grand finale show on Sunday, May 19. But before that, several special guests will perform including judge Katy Perry with Daddy Yankee, lesser known singer Shayy, and country star Kane Brown. The 25-year-old recently married Brown performs “Good As You” and “Lost in the Middle of Nowhere” with Idol contestant Alyssa Raghu.
Brown and his girlfriend Katelyn Jae married in October 2018. Just last weekend, Brown was celebrating the graduation of his wife of seven months, now Katelyn Brown, from the famous Berklee College of Music. Brown shared the video below of Katelyn walking across the stage, getting her diploma wearing a killer pair of white and silver studded ankle shoes/boots!
In case you haven’t heard: the happy couple just announced that they’re expecting their first child together — it’s going to be a baby girl! As Katelyn wrote she “got to walk across the stage with our daughter and cannot wait to teach her one day to be a strong, independent woman and that she can do anything she wants to in this world!!”
Katelyn took to social media to thank her husband for his support. She wrote that Brown “made me feel that getting my degree was so cool and continuously expressed how proud I was making him😭😍👩🎓 can’t wait to start my next journey!” See photos of the newlywed couple with diploma below. The American Idol grand finale airs Sunday, May 19 at 8 pm.

today was one day I will never forget. I’m not going to write anything too sappy, but finishing my education was the most rewarding thing I have done for myself thus far. If you are thinking whether or not your going to get your degree or if you can get through the years of college … DO IT ! This was the best decision of my life !! I spent a lot of days trying to get good WiFi on the bus to turn in assignments , or sitting finishing homework watching everyone else have fun around me, or thinking do I actually need to do this ? I had to ask for help along the way & some days needed extra encouragement, it was by no means “easy” …. but here I am on cloud 9 and got to walk across the stage with our daughter and cannot wait to teach her one day to be a strong, independent woman and that she can do anything she wants to in this world!!! Congrats to all the other graduates across the world and thank you @berkleecollege for giving me the tools and education that I will carry with me the rest of my life! Thank you to my family & friends ! And of course my amazing husband @kanebrown_music who made me feel that getting my degree was so cool and continuously expressed how proud I was making him😭😍👩🎓 can’t wait to start my next journey ! BTW : the oldest person who graduated with us today was 65, so it’s NEVER TO LATE 🙏🏼
