Maddie Poppe and Caleb Lee Hutchinson
The young superstars had huge smiles on their faces as they sang a gorgeous rendition of “Over The Rainbow.” Their chemistry was off the charts during the performance, and they even grabbed hands at the end to solidify their love for one another.
Host Ryan Seacrest had a tear in his eye as he addressed them onstage afterward, and then, he gave them the ultimate surprise: A trip to Hawaii! What better way to celebrate finishing big on Idol AND cementing their relationship than with a romantic vacay,

Jeni Greco That was the absolute sweetest American Idol finale I've ever seen and my two favorites were the final two…. America got it right…. yay , love Maddie Poppe and Caleb Lee Hutchinson
MacKenzie Bradshaw Pretty disappointed. While Maddie is talented, she isn’t much of performer. She will succeed more in her songwriting than anything. I predict out of the 3, Gabby will be the most successful.
Marta Newton Kinsey Caleb's new recording,:"You are the June in my Johnny Cash Heart".How perfect is that? Between the Royal Wedding and The American Idol Finale, I'm on sugar overload!!! Both SO sweet!!
Caitlin Villasenor Absolutely loved this happy ending. They seem great for each other but kinda bummed Caleb lost! But he will do great!

Cynde Sophia Fernandes OMG they murdered Bruddah Iz’s version of Over the Rainbow and not in a good way! LOL But congrats to Maddie. I would’ve been happy if Caleb won. Either way they’re both going to Hawaii
Judy Miller Congratulations Maddie! One thing I hope you do is perform for the sweet little Angels at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I think you could lift their spirits and put some smiles on their faces. Something about your voice that just lights up a room. I have to say I liked all 3 of the finalists win or lose they are all winners!
