Iowa Contestant Gets More Air Time on ‘Idol’ [VIDEO]
This week on American Idol, auditions were wrapped up and it was on to Hollywood week! Last night's episode was two hours of nerves and stress, but one contestant who did very well under all the pressure was Iowa's own Maddie Poppe. 20-year-old Maddie is from Clarksville, Iowa, and she won all the judges over during the very first episode of Idol a few weeks ago (her audition song was "The Rainbow Connection" - watch it HERE).
Maddie also went on Facebook Live last night to talk more about her experience on the show. She mentioned that her group round was not shown during this week's episode, but more will be shown on Sunday night, and we will DEFINITELY know what happens to her:
Way to go, Maddie! We're rooting for you here at KHAK and in Eastern Iowa!
