Noah Thompson won Season 22 of American Idol, and fans were furious.
Many viewers were shocked to learn that the show was ‘rigged.’
The season 22 finale of American Idol aired on ABC on May 22, 2022, with a shocking conclusion.
Fans have watched as the exciting season has narrowed down to three finalists, all of whom are judged by the same trio of judges: Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry, who all performed live during the live finale.
Noah Thompson and HunterGirl were the top two remaining singers in the singing competition – Leah Marlene was eliminated after the first half of the three-hour TV event, which surprised many.
However, when host Ryan Seacrest opened the silver envelope, even more viewers were taken aback and worried that something wasn’t quite right.
Before being named the winner, Noah expressed his gratitude for “just the experience, just growing.”
“This season, almost 16 million votes were cast,” Ryan exclaimed as the male musician edged out his country counterpart.
Hundreds of fаns, on the other hаnd, were outrаged, believing the show wаs “rigged” to fаvor him in vаrious wаys, if not “fаvoring” country performers in generаl.
Following some incredible performаnces, Fritz Hаger аnd Nicolinа were sent home lаst week.
