Last season on American Idol, fans fell in love with the “humble and kind” demeanor and the husky voice of construction worker, Noah Thomspon. What has life after Idol been like for winner Noah Thompson since then? We chatted about exactly that today.
Noah was an early fan fave, connecting with viewers immediately with his easy, yet rugged vocal style, and his aw-shucks attitude. We loved the fact that he was not a polished artist with years of vocal training. In fact, there were very few performances before American Idol, aside from karaoke nights. Life after Idol with winner Noah Thompson has taken a 360.
Listen to our conversaton right here:
Thompson made some really great song choices on the popular competion show. But it was his decision to perform pop and R&B star Rihanna’s “Stay” that put him in an elite category, and eventually on to claim the crown. That performance on American Idol was a game changer not only Noah, but also his for fans, and the judges too. Luke Bryan, Katie Perry and Lionel Richie couldn’t contain their excitment at his choice, and performance, even despite the fact his missed a couple of notes. The Youtube video of the performance has earned over 1 million views. The song has also been chosen as Thompson’s next single release!
