Did you see this one coming?
American Idol crowned a new winner last night. After a nationwide vote and nearly 16 million votes counted, the winner was named live on stage in Hollywood. The night started with 3 contestants in the game. Leah Marlene, Noah Thompson and HunterGirl. Leah was eliminated early on in the 3 hour finale. The showdown was on! Either Noah or Hunter would be the American Idol crowned a winner at the end of the night.
Here’s how it went down:
Congratulations to 20 year old Kentucky native, Noah Thompson! A singer (and new dad) practically plucked off the construction site to win America’s hearts and votes.
