The couple then performed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" together and was surprised with a trip to Hawaii. The "Swish Swish" singer has officially given her stamp of approval to the young American Idol couple. Caleb congratulated his love, tweeting, "No one deserved it more than you, babe. She's the superstar now". "I can't believe that people believed in me this much and just to make it to the top two was winning already", she noted. They were on Good Morning America on Tuesday chatting about the outcome of the show and their relationship.
"It was one of those things where I didn't want it to affect anything", Hutchinson told ET. "Even when I got to Top 24, I was winning". "And I didn't want to exploit my feelings for her 'cause they're very, very real".
Poppe added, referencing the large gold card that Seacrest was holding, "I saw the big 'Maddie Poppe, ' and I was like, well, hopefully it doesn't say this is the person who's getting cut". "I really did because my music is not mainstream, and so to know that I pulled this off just doing what I love and I didn't have to change myself is pretty incredible".
And for Caleb, even though he lost the singing competition, he said he won in another department - "I don't feel any type of bitter loss at all".
As Idol's latest victor, Maddie will receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records and the opportunity to sing at the Hollywood Bowl this week as well as the Radio Disney Music Awards. 'This is just divine intervention, honey'.
