Noah, while sitting next to runner-up HunterGirl on the GMA set, added: “So to hear my name at the end, it was amazing.”

They continued, saying it’s a “good thing” he only really needs to be able to sing and not talk so much as an American Idol winner.
A third tweeted: “Neither of the top 2 seem to have anything interesting to say.”
They added that neither the winner nor the runner-up are “entertaining” at all.
Though Noah’s the official Season 22 winner of American Idol, some viewers don’t think thing it was a legitimate win.
They accused the show of being “rigged” after he got the top prize over runner-up HunterGirl.
Noah said he was grateful for “just the experience, just growing" – and also shared that he was able to don his first suit since "prom."
It was time for the big reveal, and host Ryan Seacrest shared that "almost 16 million votes came in for this season.”
He went on to announce that the votes were in, and the male musician had pulled ahead over his country counterpart.
But hundreds of fans were upset, feeling the show was "rigged" to favor him, with some saying they were tuning out for good.
One viewer tweeted: “You got it wrong American Idol.
"Producers rigged the show for exactly the outcome they wanted. I am going back to The Voice."
Another accused, “@katyperry and @lukebryan advertised for Noah and Huntergirl more on social media and live tv than for any other candidate… show is rigged unfortunately."
Yet another user wrote, "Wow American Idol … has to be rigged. No way @noahthompsonmu1 won over @_LeahMarlene or @huntergirlmusic … wackkk!"
"Once again…American Idol needs to get their voting under control. Completely unfair and rigged." wrote one more as dozens sang a similar furious tune.
"No offense to Noah at all but he just doesn’t have the STAR QUALITY she has! #AmericanIdol #Rigged," wrote someone else.
Noah became emotional after his name was read as the winner.
"My heart is beating out of my chest," he said. "This is crazy."
In the past, even judges have said parts of the show aren’t “real.”
