‘American Idol’ Top 3: Who Should Win in Tonight’s Finale? Take Our Poll!
It’s time to sing your heart out.
The country has voted, and tonight is the season finale of the rebooted American Idol with only three hopefuls left: Gabby Barrett, Maddie Poppe, and Caleb Lee Hutchinson.
On Sunday’s Part 1 of the finale, the trio had a chance to sing three songs each — one dedicated to their hometowns, one personal selection, and one original song.
The song breakdown:
Caleb Lee Hutchinson — “Johnny Cash Heart,” “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” and “Folsom Prison Blues”
Gabby Barrett — “Rivers Deep,” “Little Red Wagon,” and “Don’t Stop Believin'”
Maddie Poppe — “Going, Going Gone,” “Don’t Ever Let Your Children Grow Up,” and “Landslide”
In Part 2 on Monday, fans can expect more singing from the final three and also performances by some music superstars, including the three American Idol judges: Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Perry. And, of course, host Ryan Seacrest will announce the winner in the last five minutes.
