    Reflecting on Isaiah's humility, Lambert commented on the 17-year-old's win, "the kid has got the voice man... he really just steps on the stage every time and he knows how to create magic and it's so exciting."

    Performing his new single "It's Gotta Be You", Isaiah was overwhelmed by the win.
