Jena Asciutto has had quite the senior year.
Although the 17-year-old Farmington Hills, Mich., student didn't take home the title of American IdolWednesday night, she doesn't begrudge the victory to Caleb Johnson, someone she now considers one of her best friends. "I am so happy for Caleb," she told reporters Thursday. "He deserves it all. The production team said that they haven't seen a connection like the one between me and Caleb. It helped with the stress being taken down a couple notches [during competition]."
