  • American Idol Finale Part 1 Top 3 Singers Deliver Stunning Multiple Performances

But while the two said it didn't really matter to them who won, only one could be the American Idol, and that victor is Maddie Poppe!

Poppe, 20, is from Clarksville, Indiana. Then they sang a "Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World" medley, bringing host Ryan Seacrest to tears.

Just in case their coupledom wasn't rammed home quite enough, Hutchison even took to Twitter to celebrate "girlfriend" Maddie Poppe winning the competition.

Congrats to Tammi for winning our contest. "I just got to be who I wanted to be and the fact that I am here and I can tell you that I won the show doing exactly what I wanted to do and I didn't have to change myself for anybody is incredible".

The reality series aired a two-part season finale, with the first episode broadcast Sunday and the second Monday.


This season's mentors Nick Jonas and Bebe Rexha each returned for performances with recent Idol hopefuls, as did special guests Gary Clark Jr., LeAnn Rimes, Patti LaBelle and Yolanda Adams (joining should-be victor Michael J. Woodard for What the World Needs Now, the night's roof-raising highlight). "I finally get to deliver it to them", Harmon, 27, told Billboard May 8. "Going into this, I didn't really know me apart from what I liked to sing". They are going to do the rest. ABC's version of American Idol would seem to be making as many matchups as its hit dating show. "Getting to stand by her was the best".

The final two American Idol contestants are both winners!

Poppe and Hutchinson announced on the program that they're dating, surprising judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Singers Gabby Barrett, Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe are pictured with Ryan Seacrest in a still from part one of the "American Idol" two-night season finale.

The American Idol grand finale is over and there's only one question left to answer: Who won American Idol 2018?
