See Who’s Competing in the ‘American Idol’ Season 16 Finale (PHOTOS)
Dim the lights, here we go — in just a week, the Season 16 American Idol champion will be crowned, joining the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia and Sunday night's (May 13) mentor Carrie Underwood.
So who will it be?
On the most recent episode, which challenged contestants to sing a song from Underwood's catalog and a second that they'd dedicate to their mothers in honor of Mother's Day, Michael J. Woodard, Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe battled for only three spots in the May 20/May 21 finale. And after the votes had been tallied, Barrett, Poppe and Hutchinson moved on, while Woodard and Foehner had to say goodbye to the competition.
And Woodard moved to thank his fans for their support.
"ITS TIME. I LOVE YALL WITH ALL MY HEART. YALL HAVE BEEN THERE FOR ME AND WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. TOO GOD BE THE GLORY ALWAYS. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT YALL. I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU. NOW LETS CHANGE THE WORLD," he wrote on Twitter.
