Clarksville native makes top 14 on American Idol

By  | 

HOLLYWOOD, Cali. (KCRG-TV9) -- Iowa's own Maddie Poppe was voted into the top 14 artists on American Idol on April 16.

The Clarksville native sang "Bubbly" with Colbie Caillat on the show.

"You're probably the most complete artist," judge Luke Bryan said on the show after the performance.

Pop artist Katy Perry even split her pants after the performance.

Despite Poppe saying she gets nervous when performing earlier in the episode, Lionel Ritchie couldn't tell if she was.

"You have a relaxed part about you," Lionel Ritchie said. "The thing I love the most is you can take all of this and compartmentalize it to where you're comfortable on stage."

You can watch American Idol on Sunday and Monday nights at 7 p.m. on KCRG-TV9.

Starting next week, the public will be able to vote for their favorite artists. You can vote by downloading the American Idol app, online at, and via text.
