American Idol 2018 Recap: Top 3 Contestants Revealed

Maddie Poppe sings

Underwood gave each of the singers a few tips at the Bluebird Café in Nashville before they flew back to Los Angeles for the live shows.

The 20-year-old Clarksville native shares videos from her childhood in her music video, "Dont Ever Let Your Children Grow Up." .

Consistently wowing the judges and earning unanimous praise along with standing ovations from Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, Barrett has landed a spot as a top 3 finalist.

From the very beginning, Gabby has made no bones about the fact that Carrie is her own personal "Idol".

New encryption vulnerability means email is no longer secure
However, to address this risk, experts have come up with a chip that uses ionic memristor technology to address security concerns. PGP is often used to encrypt messages in popular email programs such as Outlook , Apple Mail , Thunderbird, and Enigmail .

"She got the time to talk with Carrie without the cameras". And holy hell, Gabby chose Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing". "We never thought we would make it this far", she says. Foehner kept things short, saying, "I think the same". Perry encouraged him to not always stay in the rock-ville lane; it's okay to veer into others and sometimes focus on the more subtle sounds.

"It's like Carrie Underwood reincarnated", Bryan said after Barrett owned the stage with a powerhouse performance of the song. Since the Top 5 performances aired on Mother's Day, each contestant was able to choose a song to sing for mama.

Carrie tells Maddie her voice is hypnotic, but she's second-guessing herself too much and over-analyzing the song.

She says, "You're going to hear no a million times before you hear yes".

Asteroid larger than a Football Field will be near by Earth Experience
Astronomers think that in spite of its dimension as well as range to Earth, 2010 WC9 will securely zoom past the planet. The space rock - dubbed Asteroid 2010 WC9 - will pass by the planet at around half the moon's distance on Tuesday.

Maddie closed out the show with "God Only Knows" by The Beach Boys.

Poppe had to wait until the bitter end of the reveal, when she shared the stage with Cade Foehner and Michael J. Woodard. Eventually she went on to sing at bigger events, like RAGBRAI.

Lionel stood and addressed Maddie as "Papa Richie" and implored the country to vote (for whoever, just vote) but loves who Poppe has grown into as a person.

So of that Top 5, the Top 3 should have been Maddie, Gabby and Michael. She also implored her to keep trusting her taste in music because it is impeccable. Host Ryan Seacrest said nearly 20 million people voted, and the singers moving on (in no particular order): Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Gabby Barrett, and Maddie Poppe.

City beat Southampton to end season with 100 points
