AMORY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

American Idol finalist Trent Harmon got a homecoming of a lifetime Saturday.

Thousands came out to celebrate in Amory, Harmon's hometown.

He had a chance to meet his local fans on Saturday. 

There was a parade Saturday for the singer and then a concert at Amory High School's football stadium.

"I try to love on my fans as much as I can, you know, but it's not the same through Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Harmon said. "Tom come back and actually shake hands and for them to shake my hand and say, 'Hey man, I voted for you', I believe them."

Harmon's roommate, during the show, Manny Torres, made his first trip to Mississippi for Saturday's festivities.

"The community that's getting together for Trent, that's so awesome for him," Torres said. "He deserves every little bit of it."

Torres joined Harmon on stage during the concert. 

He has a single titled, "Sharped Dressed Man" out on iTunes. The final three contestants will be announced on Thursday during the show. 

Remember to vote and download his single. 

Harmon's journey on American Idol has given local kids an opportunity to dream bigger.

This is the first time the singer has been back home since he's been to Hollywood, and it's definitely a different atmosphere than he's experienced before.

And no matter how the competition turns out, it seems as though he will have fans for a lifetime.
