There was love in the air during the "American Idol" finale Monday night. However, with every happy fan of the first place victor, there were a number of fans upset that their pick didn't win.

You can catch the top 7 - Poppe, Hutchinson, Barrett, Turner, Woodard, Jurnee and Cade Foehner - on tour across the United States of America this summer with American Idol Live!, which kicks off July 11 in Redding, Calif.

Congrats to Tammi for winning our contest.

In the midst of all the songs and celebration, host Ryan Seacrest gathered all three on stage for the first elimination of the night.

Shortly before the final results were announced, Hutchinson revealed that Poppe is his girlfriend, sending the audience screaming and swooning as the duo launched into a sweet, stripped-down take on Over the Rainbow. He wrote on Twitter about Poppe, "MY GIRLFRIEND WON AMERICAN IDOL!".

Underscoring Amazon's battle with its hometown is the company's search for a second headquarters in another North American city. The city council would need to review the tax, which kicks in next year, after five years if the city wants to extend it.

"I don't have any words to describe this really. Still hoping to hear her on the radio someday", another posted. They harmonized quite well together, and Bryan let Barrett take her star power to the front of the stage for one of her last hurrahs.

"American Idol" has crowned its season 16 victor, the first for the singing competition's revival on ABC - and the first to feature a couple in the finale. Some fans even went as far as to call the whole show rigged in ABC's hands.

According to Bustle, the victor of American Idol will receive a guaranteed recording contract with Hollywood Records and a cash prize of $250,000, which is not as much as past seasons of the singing competition.

Before she was named the champion in the rebooted singing competition, runner-up Caleb Lee Hutchinson announced that he and Poppe were an item. This couple has become quite an American Idol sensation in the past 24 hours.

"Now we all know Caleb should have won".
