Who won 'American Idol'? Winner revealed during 2-hour music-filled finale

Before the results of America's vote was announced by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, Maddie and Caleb sang an adorable duet of "Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, which was filled with hand-holding and a lot of blushing. Now, the finale has finally aired, and we know who won: Maddie Poppe.

Monday night's "Idol" finale saw Poppe get crowned the victor after battling it out with her beau and their fellow top three finalist, Gabby Barrett.

The victor of "American Idol" may have been announced Monday night but that's not the only thing that got viewers talking during the epic season 16 finale.

"So, the two of them are a couple, and they're competing for the title".

"We really wished that this could happen and just that it happened, I'm just so happy, so on top of the world, that I can't even believe this is my life, so it's pretty unbelievable", she said. Caleb congratulated his love, tweeting, "No one deserved it more than you, babe". I love you (heart emoticon)'. I am honored to know you and even more honored to call you mine.

"There's still talent out there to be discovered", said judge Katy Perry. Caleb noted that their romance started on January 21, the day they met during Hollywood Week.

"I had goosebumps when they announced the victor her name and then they also announced they were a couple".

"If you ask me, it was January 21 - the first day I laid eyes on her, ' he told People of when things became 'official" between him and Maddie. He said Caleb and Maddie are a couple! "I cried and anxious and wondered if this dream would ever pan out for me".
