Maddie Poppe Pens Heartfelt Message To Boyfriend Caleb Lee Hutchinson

3 singers eye stardom as 'American Idol' ends its 1st season on ABC

During the nailbiter of a two-night finale, Gabby Barrett, Hutchinson and Poppe performed three songs: a hometown dedication, a repeat of their favorite song of the season, and their winner's single.

Don't forget, auditions for the new season of American Idol on ABC are NOW OPEN! With the reality singing show came some very close friends that Maddie says will be lifelong buddies.

"Well, Maddie is my pal and I've known her since the beginning of Hollywood week", Hutchinson said.

"We really wished that this could happen and just that it happened, I'm just so happy, so on top of the world, that I can't even believe this is my life, so it's pretty awesome", she said. The "Swish Swish" singer has officially given her stamp of approval to the young American Idol couple.

The two-hour-long episode also saw guests Nick Jonas, Bebe Rexha, and even Kermit the Frog take the stage. However, there's clearly no bad blood there since the two are dating. 'No one deserved it more than you babe.

Maddie adds, "I just can't even believe, you know I felt like I was kind of an underdog for a while. I've never cared for or adored another person so much, @calebleemusic you mean so much to me and I'm so blessed to be able to have had you alongside me throughout this journey and hopefully for many more moons to come, xo".

Katy said it was the kind of romance that just couldn't be made up. "I cried and anxious and wondered if this dream would ever pan out for me".

The victor of "American Idol" may have been announced Monday night but that's not the only thing that got viewers talking during the epic season 16 finale.
