One month after Noah Thompson was crowned the American Idol 2022 winner in the emotional season 5 (overall 20th season) finale, he’s still taking it all in. After getting back up on stage for the first time since performing his hit single "One Day Tonight,” Noah took a moment to commemorate a special day with the help of the ABC singing competition that propelled him to stardom.
In honor of Father’s Day on June 19, American Idol dedicated heartwarming Instagram posts to the country music singer and his sweet family — comprised of his girlfriend, Angel Dixon, and their son, Walker. To kick off the holiday weekend, the longtime TV series shared a photo of Noah and Walker enjoying quality time in Disney World, where the show filmed live shows back in May.
“Happy Father's Day to our winner @noahthompsonmusic & all the Idol dads out there! 💙,” American Idol’s official Instagram wrote.
This heartfelt snap was followed by a memorable clip of the Kentucky native excitedly reuniting with his loved ones at the Florida resort. “It means the world to me that they’d be here,” Noah says in the snippet. “It feels like home almost, you know. There ain’t nothing like it. I really needed that, to be honest.”
AI captioned the Instagram video with a similar celebratory message. “Noah Thompson is your #AmericanIdol, but his most important title is father. ❤️,” the post read. “Happy #FathersDay to all the wonderful dads and father figures out there!”
Reacting to the special shoutouts from the popular competition show, Noah voiced his gratitude. “Awe man.. love y’all. Thank you so much,” he replied.
Unsurprisingly, American Idol fans were just as ecstatic to send the artist festive notes. “Happy Father’s Day Noah; blessings to you and your family!!! 💕,” one person wrote in the comments section. “Could not be happier for you Noah! Darling little boy! Your voice is amazing,” another added. “I love that picture 🥺❤️,” a different fan said.
While Noah nor Angel posted about their Father’s Day plans, we’re sure they had a great time together. ICYMI, he recently got back joined American Idol 2021 winner Chayce Beckham at the CMA Fest and his rendition of “23” didn’t disappoint. Check it out below:
