Last night (well, Monday morning in Nepal), someone became the 18th American Idol and it wasn’t Arthur Gunn. Yep, that sucks. He totally was a fan favorite to win the season, and kinda deserved it as well, but lost the title to Just Sam. And of course, many people had a lot to say about the finale and what better place than Twitter to take it all out.
So, without further ado.
Still can’t process.
Reality shows, I’m telling you.
See, everyone knows.
No hate towards anyone but we all know this is true.
Never. May be just once or twice but still, almost never.
That’s quite a statement.
Arthur Gunn is the greatest Idol contestant of all time— Brooks (@ShootThe_Trey) May 18, 2020
Can’t, won’t argue.
That says a lot.
Arthur Gunn was robbed of ‘American Idol’ win, say 41% of viewers https://t.co/PiKkRYtJaK— Gold Derby (@GoldDerby) May 18, 2020
Idol is so rigged this year. They’re acting like it’s live when it’s obvious it’s pre-recorded. Sam is a great singer, but was not the better singer. I know this is television but at least stop acting like America actually chose the winner with their votes #AmericanIdol— Melody (@Melody11124) May 18, 2020
We are happy for your win #justsam + and we are pretty sure #ArthurGunn is a winner too. Arthur may be runner up on this contest – but he will be a massive winner for many years to come. Arthur you are going to dominate the singing world and many Grammys for life. #AmericanIdol pic.twitter.com/fJUznDTew8— Hollywood Insider (@Hollywdinsdr) May 18, 2020
One hell of a talent.
Definitely going places.
The wrong person won. Not to take anything from just Sam she is awesome but isn't original. Just another great female voice. Arthur Gunn is unique and so talented. Looking forward to seeing where his career takes him #IdolFinale #arthurgunn— Sharon Ritzer (@0ae2dbe199a84b0) May 18, 2020
We all are.
Look at the brighter side.
This (Not Just Sam being forgotten part but the one about Grammy)
You really are a winner, Dibesh. Please keep doing music, always and forever.
