American Idol 2014: Jena Irene Graduates! [PHOTOS]

Jena Irene on American Idol 2014

American Idol 2014 runner-up Jena Irene is now a high school graduate. Just weeks before embarking on the American Idol tour, the singer-songwriter walked at her graduation from North Farmington (Michigan) High School on Sunday.

She took to Twitter and Instagram to commemorate the moment, and for someone who just spent the entire spring on national television, she seemed just as excited about the big day as your average teenager.

“Oh man, lets do this. #graduation,” Jena Tweeted before the ceremony on Sunday. “I cant believe its finally here.”

Following the ceremony, she said long with some photos posted to Twitter and Instagram: “Ended an amazing chapter of my life today. Happy graduation, its time for the next chapter.” And for now, that next chapter is the American Idol Live tour which kicks off June 24 in Binghamton, New York.

Check out some of Jena’s graduation photos below, courtesy of Twitter and Instagram.




  1. Congratulations Jena! Looking for a new song written by you comparable to “CREEP”. (Dark & haunting)

    • Jena is already enrolled in college for the fall. My guess is her major will be music. If she had won AI, College would probably have been postponed.
