Iowa’s Maddie Poppe Makes the Top 14 on American Idol [VIDEO]
It's official! Clarksville-native Maddie Poppe is moving on to the live shows on ABC's 'American Idol!' Last night's episode saw the second half of the top 24 performing their celebrity duets, with Maddie teaming up with Colbie Caillat for her 2007 hit "Bubbly."
Maddie's duet with Colbie was easily one of my favorites of the night, along with Mara Justine & Rachel Platten's "Fight Song," Jurnee & Lea Michele's "Run to You," and Marcio Donaldson & Allen Stone's "What's Going On."
I will say that I am a little bit heartbroken that Effie and Shannon went home last night. Effie's performance of "Barracuda" and Shannon's duet with Cam to "Burning House" were DEFINITELY top 14-worthy, but I guess they couldn't keep everybody.
Here are your top 14 finalists who will be moving on to the live shows next week:
- Ada Vox
- Cade Foehner
- Caleb Lee Hutchinson
- Catie Turner
- Dennis Lorenzo
- Gabby Barrett
- Garrett Jacobs
- Jonny Brenns
- Maddie Poppe
- Mara Justine
- Marcio Donaldson
- Michael J. Woodard
- Michelle Sussett
