So you mean to tell me my favorite finally won American Idol and all it took was for me not to watch that much and show disinterest in this season.  I finally found the recipe. It took 18 seasons but

I don’t believe it!  Just Sam won!  JUST SAM ACTUALLY WON!   (I do a little happy dance now!)

My votes went to Arthur and Sam. Best final 2 ever, and will be the most successful final 2's. SAM WON, JUST SAM WON. IT'S ABOUT TIME. SHE WILL OUTSELL FANTASIA. And possibly Kelly Clarkson 2. Best wi

Really Idol???  It has nothing to do with money.  There is a pandemic.  Sam's grandmother is high risk.  They are from the highest risk state in the country.

The reason Sam was by herself is because she chose to stay in California to self-isolate, which Idol paid for, as a precaution to keep from getting her grandmother ill?

guess you both missed the part where I wrote "keep her safe and isolated". there are ways to bring her to LA w/o taking risks with the pandemic. and I am sure money is not an issue for the show..

another option is that some of the stuff or the production could have come and be with Sam for that moment..

And you missed the part where Sam was purposefully staying by herself in Los Angeles so she didn't run the risk of getting her grandmother sick. If she wanted her grandmother in person with her, it would've happened, but she clearly felt it was better safe to keep them separated.

NY has very strict shelter in place guidelines.  It is not worth it to drag someone who is high risk across the country.  And what if Sam had lost?

Which is the smart and responsible thing to do. Pandemic > Idol. No brainier. Peoples lives > Idol. No brainier.

ok, so i understand why they didn't bother bringing her grandmother and get someone from the production, even one person or two people who helped her set the apartment for the show.. so she won't be alone..

What if she had lost?  She's not the only person to not be with their loved ones during a pandemic.

I think sending a person or two from production would have made is suspicious since they have never done it before. It would have given away the fact that she made the Top 2 or won.

Reality check, Sam wasn't on her death bed, lol.

 

In as far as a production person, something is fake about having someone there because they are paid too.

I felt bad too, but I would have done what Just Sam did and stayed in LA.  Her grandmother was in a high risk category (so is my mom) and she came from New York City, which was a place hit very hard by the coronavirus.  Health and safety first has always been my motto so I was fine with Just Sam staying in LA to protect her grandmother.  At least now she can go home and give her grandmother a big hug.  😁

Yeah, being from New York City doesn't help either. Just Sam made the right move. Hopefully she can see her grandmother soon.
