Finalist 'Just Sam' wins the 'Crown' of American Idol 2020.
The ABC American Idol finale aired on May 17, Sunday night was 'one of a kind' and possibly the first-ever reality musical show being hosted on a home. All three judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie, were also seen 'face-timing' from their homes.
Similarly, if you've been watching and following the musical show, then you might be updated that the show was on a near end with just seven remaining contestants who were Dillon James, Julia Gargano, Francisco Martin, Just Sam, Jonny West, and Arthur Gunn.

The finale was on Sunday, and the challenge towards the throne was getting tough and tough as two semi-finalist Julia Gargano and Louis Knight gets eliminated. Following Francisco, Jonny, and Dillion get eliminated next with a cut from the top five and leaving Just Sam and Arthur in the top 'Two'.
And finally, the result time comes in with just two left to be the next 'American Idol'; the host Ryan Seacrest shares the result; however, not on big Hollywood set but this time on his home.
Drum rolls, Ryan shares the result declaring 'Just Sam as the winner'. Initially, Just doesn't seem to believe and shares, "my dreams have come true...I would never ever, ever expected this."
She just celebrated the victory with her grandma who was there to support her virtually on her tablet. For the special finale, she sang her own rendition of 'Rise Up' wearing a unique gold jacket and a regal red shirt.
Similarly, Arthur Gunn holds the second-position, who seemed to be expecting the first position as his family was already waiting with champagne on the background.
Nevertheless, he was credited as the best performer of the American Idol Finale, where Gunn sparkled his vocal magic singing James & Bobby Purify's "You Can't Keep a Good Man Down." On the special night, Katy also gave his first love performance of his new hot single 'Daisies'.
