American Idol 2020 Winner: Is Just Sam Deserving? Social Media Backlash Says Arthur Gunn Should Have Won
Just Sam has recently won over Arthur Gunn on American Idol 2020, and it seems like fans are starting to go livid right after the recent season finale. Although the 20-year-old New Yorker was able to win over the 22-year-old singer from Nepal in the 2020 season of the popular ABC singing competition, it seems like fans were not too happy.
Just Sam joined the top five finalists on Sunday for a night of their best performances with two songs of her own choice. This former Subway busker was able to sing the previous season one Idol winner Kelly Clarkson's hugely successful hit Stronger for a certain "song she'll use to celebrate" the ending of the whole COVID-19 lockdown.
For her second performance, this winner reprised her audition song to impress the judges with a certain ballad called Rise up by Andra Day. Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and also Lionel Richie gave praise to the singer for the "growth" she has shown over the whole show.
Does Arthur Gunn Deserve to be an American Idol 2020 Winner?
Just Sam's most challenging competition was Arthur as he showed off his famous raspy voice while belting out "I don't want to be" song by Gavin DeGraw during the first of his finale songs. Arthur was given much praise for his amazing rendition of "have you ever seen the rain" by the esteemed Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Even the 35-year-old upcoming mom predicted Arthur would win right after the performance of this stunning 1971 classic song. Even the 70-year-old Lionel said that Arthur "dropped the mic" and that the performance was absolutely "magical."
After the host of American Idol's Ryan Seacrest, 45, announced the winner, Just Sam suddenly burst into screams from her LA studio as her mother cheered using the iPad from New York.
The entire superstar panel all looked thrilled and excited to congratulate "their little girl" by standing up with applause.

Much of the backlash has been aimed directly at Just Sam in support of Arthur Gunn, whose fans felt he should have been the champion of the ABC singing competition. Due to Just Sam being the champion, the signer was given the opportunity to sing one of the most iconic songs known as "we are the world" along with the singer Lionel Richie himself.
Although the performance was taped separately and only merged with the use of special effects, American Idol 2020 winner Just Sam was able to join the Grammy winner on the hit song that was written back in 1985 along with the legendary Michael Jackson.
