Clarksville's Maddie Poppe makes it to 'American Idol' finals

I've enjoyed her performances all season and have a great respect for her musical taste and stylings, so I think she definitely deserves that spot in the American Idol Top 3.

Underwood herself also returned to the Idol stage, performing her single "Cry Pretty" and acting as a guest mentor to the contestants. You can stream Episode 17: Top 5 anytime on ABC.com or the ABC app, but here are some highlights you won't want to miss.

The Top 5 contestants on "American Idol" have to be ready for anything.

Woodard and Cade Foehner were sent home. She said this experience has made everything come full circle. "Carrie told Gabby there is nobody in country like her and country (music industry) could use her". Lionel Richie said that Caleb should know he is an artist when Lionel can know him "in two notes, as in this song".

Gabby then sang "Last Name" by Carrie and received a standing ovation. Michael J. Woodard - "Still I Rise" by Yolanda Adams Both Perry and Richie told Michael he was the anointed one (hope that's not bad luck.) Bryan was brought to tears, which Katy wiped away, and Luke said he couldn't speak!

It then became time for the contestants to sing songs dedicated to their mothers. Luke complimented his song choice and being right in his wheelhouse, while Katy said he's something special and she'd love to grab a beer with him when he turns 21-years-old.

Maddie Poppe, 20, of Clarksville, sings and plays guitar, ukulele and keyboard, and has described her style as "kind of folk, a little country". Perry said this is one of her top three songs ever and Maddie did it justice.

Also, don't forget to keep voting! They will perform one more time on Sunday night, May 20, at 7 p.m. live on ABC (local channel KCRG-TV 9) with the victor announced in a two-hour reveal show on Monday, May 21, starting at 8 p.m. "We loved that you got choked up at your own emotional scene".

During American Idol's Mother's Day episode on Sunday, the Top 3 were selected and voted into the final round of competition.
