Will it be the soulful country singer from Pittsburgh, Gabby Barrett, midwest singer/songwriter Maddie Poppe or the Georgia country boy Caleb Lee Hutchinson? You watched Sunday night’s (May 20) finale
Poppe was named the winner Monday night of the final American Idol.
Poppe hugged Gabby and Caleb and came back up with tears as Caleb Hutchinson came in second and Gabby Barrett 3rd.
Maddie should, without a doubt, win this season of AI! She was the best all around tonight by far.

I didn't care of any of the first round songs but Maddie's was the best. I couldn't even understand half of what Gabby was singing and I found Caleb's performance cringe-inducing.
Maddie Poppe sings "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac at the American Idol Finale
I really enjoyed Caleb's second round performance but Maddie won that round, too. I didn't like Gabby's first performance of "Little Red Wagon" and I didn't care for this one either.
Gabby's performance of "Don't Stop Believin" was absolutely horrible and the worst of the night in my opinion. Caleb was good but not great. What really sealed it for me for Maddie was "Landslide" which was the best of the night.
Poppe may have taken home a title, but it's the show that went out on top
