“American Idol” has crowned a winner after a nail-biter season finale.
The final three contestants Grace Kinstler, Willie Spence and Chayce Beckham, took the “Idol” stage for the remaining time on Sunday’s show, aired live coast-to-coast on ABC. As usual, judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan provided feedback — but ultimately, fans voting from home decided the winner.
Past contestants from this season also returned, giving numerous performances to fill the three-hour show. However, missing among them became former runner-up Arthur Gunn, who returned to the competition this season, which was a comeback twist.
At the remaining time, former contestant Graham DeFranco stepped up for a duet with Sheryl Crow.”He got here to cheer,” Bryan staid to DeFranco, although a virtual Q&A post-show. “He was there to support Chayce, and we are pulling him out of the crowd going, ‘You’re gonna sing with Sheryl Crow.’ And he was like, ‘Hell yeah!’
“As for why Gunn was absent, Richie said the judges “do not even understand what happened.” Perry chimed in that “American Idol” is “a spicy show.
“Italiveive, three-hour show. And, pretty honestly, we’ve had a total colourful season. Curveballs galore,” she continued. “But Graham DeFranco? I mean, killed it. Sang so well, and I was so happy he was there.”
Here’s what went down, which includes the surprise return of a fan favourite:.’
