Maddie Poppe Drops New Single 'Going Going Gone' Just Before Winning 'American Idol'!

Congrats is in order for Maddie Poppe – she just won American Idol last night (May 21)!

“I don’t have many words to say I just, I feel so overwhelmed,” the 20-year-old singer shared afterwards.

Maddie adds, “I just can’t even believe, you know I felt like I was kind of an underdog for a while. 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.”

“The thing is I remember a year ago I was playing in a coffee shop for six people, and I just, I wanted to give up,” she recalled. “I didn’t see this going anywhere and I was afraid, and just to know a year later if I could go back and tell myself, you’re the winner of ‘American Idol,’ I wouldn’t believe it.”

Just a few days ahead of her win, Maddie dropped her debut single, “Going Going Gone” that you can listen to below and download it now on all digital retailers!
