AMERICAN Idol graduate Megan Danielle took fans back to memories in her recent social media post.
Megan appeared to be coming to terms with the fact that she recently lost the Idol title to former competitor Iam Tongi.
The 19-year-old singer posted a recap of what appeared to be idol auditions on her Instagram Stories on Monday.
Megan was outside, standing a few feet from tables that read “American Idol.”
A few people could be seen working at the table; However, the focus of the snapshot was Megan’s face.
The teenager put on a goofy expression and stuck his tongue out the side of her open mouth.
Megan welcomed her silliness, captioning the photo she shared “24/7 vibes.” With that, she let fans know that her playful vibes last all day, every day.
NO HARD FEELINGS
Megan isn’t bitter about how Idol has turned out, which she made clear in a recent interview with the New York Post.
She dismissed the rumor that the show had been rigged to attract Iam, 18, putting the fans who made those claims straight.
“I would say it’s not just because I feel like God made it all happen for a reason,” said the outlet’s former waitress.

“Even if I was first, second, last or whatever … I feel like each of us really deserves it.”
Megan added, “I feel like I deserve it and he’s so humble and so talented.”
“And that was his time and I’m just super proud of him.”
I recently lost his father and some fans thought sympathy votes gave him the win.
Megan has just as much sad backstory to get sympathy votes as Iam.
Her father abandoned the family when she was seven years old.
Megan’s grandfather, Chuck Bass, who she says was the “most important person in her life,” passed away last year.
During the finale, the Idol contestant cried as a photo of her grandfather appeared on screen singing “Journey’s Faithfully,” which Megan said had been edited out.
“When I see my grandpa on screen, I know he’s proud of me,” the singer told the New York Post.
As for her father, she claims that he turns to her “when she’s on TV.”
Before Idol, Megan auditioned for The Voice in 2020.
Despite losing Idol, Megan still sings and connects with her fans.
In a new video on Instagram, she sings an emotional song.
Megan chose a popular song for her followers to perform online.
In the Instagram video, the American Idol star mimicked the heartbreaking lyrics to Dolly Parton’s (77) song “Jolene.”
The season 21 runner-up put on the song’s highest notes as the country singer relived the sad memory of “a redheaded bank teller who was flirting with her husband, Carl Dean,” it says Esquire.
Megan captioned the post, “A lot of y’all have been asking about Jolene so here we go.”
