American Idol Winner Maddie Poppe on Her Debut Album, Meeting Kermit and That 'Awkward' Finale Hand Holding

We all know Maddie Poppe can sing and play guitar — she is ABC’s first-ever American Idol winner, after all — but did you know she also boasts a secret third talent?

Fortunately, there won’t be any surprises — at least any negative ones — on Poppe’s debut album, which she said she hopes will reflect the singer/songwriter vibe she put forward during the competition.

“I want to stick with doing the vein I stuck with on the show,” she said. “I didn’t realize how far that would take me in the competition, but now I realize that’s enough. I really want to keep being true to what I want to do. I don’t want to get caught up in the other things that sometimes come from being in the music industry.”

Your thoughts on Poppe’s win, now that you’ve had a few days to let the results marinate? Drop ’em in a comment below.
