'American Idol' winner Noah Thompson

Less than two hours after winning "American Idol," Noah Thompson barely has time to sit and eat, let alone check his phone.

The 20-year-old construction worker from Louisa, Kentucky has an interview with "Good Morning America" in New York Monday morning,

meaning he's whisked into a car right after stepping off the "Idol" stage and off to an airport to catch a 10 p.m. red eye flight.

It's a lot for Thompson, a small-town guy who'd never been on a plane until his "Idol" audition in Austin, to process.

"Honestly, dude, I was just kind of numb," Thompson tells USA TODAY over the phone about an hour after Sunday's finale, while eating pizza in the car. "It blew me away.

I just didn't know how to feel. Anybody could have won this show, you know what I mean? I just didn't think that it was me."
