'American Idol' finale: And the victor is …

He previously auditioned for season nine of the United States edition of The Voice but failed to persuade any of the coaches to turn for him - however he fared far better when he tried his hand at American Idol, nabbing a ticket to the Hollywood stages with his rendition of The Steel Drivers song If It Hadn't Been For Love. Poppe began to cry and she was then met with a hug from host Ryan Seacrest.

Below is all the information you need to watch American Idol online and live Monday to catch the last episode of the season. She nailed it the second time, prompting Lionel to say that she owned the stage and was "selling her goods".

Caleb, 19, performed "Johnny Cash Heart", "Don't Close Your Eyes" and "Folsom Prison Blues" during part one of the finale, really impressing the judges with each song. Even knowing how hard this week was, Katy Perry still wasn't impressed.

Gabby Barrett was up next, singing her gospel-and-soul inflected single "Rivers Deep".

Did American Idol voters get it right?

Who is she: 20-year-old Maddie is a student from Clarkesville, Iowa. "I was shaking and so scared and my whole community was there, and so I was like, 'I think that I should do that again and do it on a national level now.' I didn't realize when we put it together that it's in the exact same key that I originally sang it in, which is really weird because I usually sing it a lot lower".

The next performer was Gabby, who opted for Miranda Lambert's "Little Red Wagon". 'The more the Instagram picture likes went up the more I wanted to hit the treadmill, ' he explained on the show.

Maddie was up next with her original song, "Don't Ever Let Your Children Grow Up".

She immediately recognized the singer, who hasn't toured with the band in two decades, and the show sort of just rolled with the happening.

After Gabby finished her performance, everyone spotted a special someone giving a standing ovation. And, halfway through the performance, the legendary Patty Labelle joined in for the fun. Perry called the original performances and the first round of the show "a disaster". "Wake up!" Katy said before Round 3 commenced. Gabby, 19, took on "Little Red Wagon", "Rivers Deep", and "Don't Stop Believin, '" the last in which Luke Bryan called "the most fantastic version [he's] ever heard". "She was unbelievable, that's my critique!" he said.
