American Idol finalists Maddie Poppe and Megan Danielle recently opened up about the hidden challenges they faced during their time on the show. The talented singers, who have developed a close friendship since their respective journeys on American Idol, discussed their shared experiences in an Instagram Live session.

One topic that resonated with both Poppe and Danielle was the “therapy sessions” they had with their vocal coaches. These intimate moments provided a much-needed outlet for the contestants to discuss the intense and demanding nature of the competition.

In addition to the emotional support, the duo commiserated over the often-overlooked task of choosing their wardrobes for the show.

Poppe explained that wardrobe decisions were especially challenging because they came at the end of long, exhausting days.

She shared her moments of indecisiveness, where fatigue sometimes overpowered her desire for perfection. Danielle then added that their choices didn’t always align with the producers’ preferences, leading to additional stress and uncertainty.
