Former American Idol Contestants Are Rooting For Iowa’s Maddie Poppe [VIDEO]
Sunday was Prince night on American Idol and our Top 5 were revealed! Each contestant sang a Prince song and a song from the year that they were born.
Clarksville, Iowa's Maddie Poppe has shined throughout the entire process with her sweet personality and unique musical taste. She impressed again on Sunday when she performed a song written by Prince 'Nothing Compares 2 U' while playing the piano. Yep! She plays the piano too! Poppe also performed Sheryl Crow's 'If It Makes You Happy' from 1999 (the year she was born). Needless to say this girl is a star!
Unfortunately, there can only be one winner and we had to part with two contestants on Sunday. Our Iowa girl made it through! But, we said goodbye to Jurnee and Catie Turner. They may have been eliminated, but at least they'll get to go on tour with the rest of the Top 7 this summer! Jurnee and Catie we're recently asked in an interview who they think should win American Idol. Both former contestants agreed--Maddie Poppe! Watch and see what they had to say about the Clarksville, Iowa native.
Maddie seems to have good things to say about her fellow contestants as well, especially her roommate Catie Turner.
Catie Turner is such an unbelievably special person to me. I am so blessed to have had her walk into my life. I can honestly say that she is without a doubt the most talented person I’ve ever had the privilege to meet. Catie is someone who from the beginning of this competition, I 100% thought would walk away with the title, and to be honest, should have. This girl has the world in the palm of her hand and will do such great things. I love this girl so unconditionally and I am so grateful to have found a FOREVER friend. ❤️
We can't wait to see Maddie win this thing! ;)
