‘American Idol’ finale: Did Pennsylvania’s Louis Knight win the crown?

Louis Knight’s “American Idol” journey has come to an end.

The singer from Narberth was eliminated from the ABC competition series at the start of the May 17 finale, which began by bringing the top seven down to a top five. Viewers are able to vote for the remaining singers throughout the finale (which airs from 8 to 10 p.m. on ABC).

“Thank you judges and ‘American Idol,’” Knight told the cameras. “This has been an amazing journey so far. I’m just really grateful.”

The top five are Dillon James, Johnny West, Arthur Gunn, Francisco Martin and Just Sam.

Later, Knight took to Instagram to thank fans.

“This American Idol journey has been a dream,” he wrote. “It’s been filled with happiness, sadness, lifelong friendships, challenges, and ultimately growth. Through this experience I’ve learned a new work ethic – what it really takes to be at the top of your game, and the person I want to be, not only as an artist but as a human being.”

This American Idol journey has been a dream. It’s been filled with happiness, sadness, lifelong friendships, challenges, and ultimately growth. Through this experience I’ve learned a new work ethic – what it really takes to be at the top of your game, and the person I want to be, not only as an artist but as a human being. I have to say, a part of me was a bit lost before idol, but being on idol has forced me to reckon with certain things in my life and grow. As that is the only option 🙂 It has been such an honor to be a part of this, to perform for all of you each week, and to stand along side all of the incredible contestants I’m fortunate enough to call family. I cannot thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for voting, your support, and your belief in me. I wouldn’t be here, and have the opportunity to keep pursuing my music career without you. I couldn’t be prouder of my friends performing tonight, and I really hope you enjoy the show! I always say “small victories” because enough of them will lead up to a day like this. I know I won’t be performing tonight for your vote, and I won’t be the next American Idol, but i can say that tonight marks a “huge victory” no matter what. And I couldn’t have done it without you all. Love you x ps. here are some of my favorite memories from the show

Knight is one of the few Pennsylvania singers to make it into the top 10 of the show. So far, the farthest a Keystone State native has gone was Gabby Barrett, who made it to the final three in the competition in 2018.
