Carrie Underwood makes an exciting return to 'American Idol'

Carrie Underwood makes an exciting return to 'American Idol'

The Top 3 will compete again for America's Vote as the American Idol two-night finale begins LIVE SUNDAY 8|7c on America's network, ABC!

But there are two other things America and I don't agree on, and that's Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Gabby Barrett.

Maddie Poppe shined bright on her rendition of "I Told You So", while Cade Foehner and Michael J. Woodard did their best during the week of Underwood.

If you are like most people, you watched Gabby Barrett trying to sing multiple Carrie Underwood songs during her "American Idol" audition and thought- she's fine.

"It's like Carrie Underwood reincarnated", Bryan said after Barrett owned the stage with a powerhouse performance of the song.

The lucky top five even got to sing on stage with Underwood, who, 13 years after winning the show, said that coming full circle felt very surreal.

"Holy monkeys I was super excited to meet Carrie Underwood", Barrett exclaimed. So why you guys keep voting for them and then never buy their music after they win is beyond me.

What stood out to us is she's a good person that, "is who she is".

Carrie also opened up about her son's sweet side in another recent interview, where she revealed that he made her feel handsome and asked her not to put any makeup on while she was getting ready to attend an event because he thought that she was lovely the way she was. There's no one like you in this competition, in the music industry, on this planet earth.

During the show, the judges gave Barrett a standing ovation, and Perry said Barrett has become an internet darling.

"You have to flap your wings a little harder when it comes to working that crowd", Katy explained, before Luke told Caleb he doesn't sound like anyone else. "I don't think I could ever stop doing it or walk away". Lionel added Gabby "was just fabulous".

Barrett was hospitalized Friday for bronchitis, laryngitis and a sinus infection, according to Blase Barrett.

KWWL was able to FaceTime with Maddie before her performance last night.

She says, "This summer I kind of was at a low point".

"Pretty sure he put yogurt in my hair and I am now being forced to watch Fraggle Rock (he loves the classics)", Underwood then revealed how she was spending her Mother's Day.
