Caleb Lee Hutchinson Wanted Maddie Poppe To Win ‘American Idol’
When it was announced that Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe were dating right before the announcement of the American Idol winner, people got really nervous. Could the two young lovers be broken apart by the one of them winning the show. But fret not, Idol fans. Not only did Caleb take it in stride, he was actually rooting for Maddie.
Caleb is just a big sweet dude from Georgia who is a pure gentleman. So, it’s no surprise that he was so open to having Maddie beat him on the show. He said,
“I was hoping and praying Maddie would win just because I’m Team Maddie.”
The truth is that he was the one that wanted to keep their romance a secret. Not because he was ashamed or anything, but rather because he didn’t want it becoming the story rather than their music. He continued,
“Maddie was fine announcing it from the beginning. I didn’t want to take away from the music. I wanted to focus on the task at hand. It wasn’t anything I ever tried to hide.”
But don’t worry about Caleb. He’s recording his own music and is as busy as ever. I can’t wait for he and Maddie’s inevitable duet. It’s going to be soooo cute.
