Heading into the finale, it was down to the top three contestants, Gabby Barrett, Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Poppe.

During the two-hour special, Poppe resurrected her "Rainbow Connection" cover she originally sang on her "Idol" audition - this time accompanied by Kermit the Frog "playing" banjo.

Hutchinson revealed the news on the final night of the 2018 reboot season of the classic reality music competition show, which debuted on ABC-TV this season after a decade and a half on Fox.

The show has since struggled to recapture some of the popularity it enjoyed at the peak of its original run, but ABC has already picked up another season of "Idol" with all three judges and host Ryan Seacrest signed on to return.

"American Idol" has been a win-win for Iowa native Maddie Poppe.

"Honestly. before this episode began, I was completely okay with Maddie Poppe winning". "Through this whole thing, me and her haven't been apart". "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 gushed.
