American Idol Winner Maddie Poppe at Aulani

American Idol Winner Maddie Poppe spotted at Aulani Resort.

American Idol winner, Maddie Poppe, and runner up, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, were spotted at Disney’s Aulani Resort.  The trip was planned as an award after last year’s season finale.  What an amazing opportunity for these two!  They received an amazing prize and had the opportunity to hang 10 with Mickey and Minnie!

What is even more exciting is these two were already celebrating in Hawaii when Ryan Seacrest made his big announcement.  During his “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” live radio show, Seacrest announced the famous show will be heading to Hawaii to film its showcase rounds!  This will be the first time ever the show has featured its showcase rounds at the Aulani Resort and Spa in Ko Olina.  Excuse me while I go tune up my vocal chords.  My kids at school say that I “shouldn’t quit my day job” when I sing at school, but I don’t think I’m that bad. Maybe? Me, me, me, me. What do you think?

Alright, I will leave it up to those who are actually pretty decent.  I know I am not good, but I still have fun while singing.  Which is why I love watching “American Idol” on ABC.  So, imagine my excitement when the news broke that the most widely recognized competition will be back for its second season!  The season will premier Sunday, March 3 at 8 p.m. EST.

Seacrest, who has been with the franchise since its inception in 2002, will return as host.  I am not sure the show would be the same without him as host, to be honest.  This year the show will also feature returning judges, music legends Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richies.  In addition, the judges will be joined by radio DJ, comedian, best-selling author, and recent mirror ball champion, Bobby Bones.  Bones will be featured as the official in-house mentor for the contestants.  Oh, yes, you read that right.  Bobby Bones will be the mentor this season!

I think this will be an amazing opportunity for this year’s contestants!!  Seriously, if I could actually sing, I would be taking advantage of this!  Who knows, maybe you will run into American Idol winner, Maddie Poppe, who could give you a few pointers of her own!  “Laki Maika’I”, good luck contestants!
