American Idol 2018 winner Maddie Poppe mentioned in a recent interview that Disney was following her around with cameras for a documentary.
Now the first installment of the new Youtube series An American Idol Story: Maddie Poppe is here, and will be posted throughout the summer on Maddie’s Youtube channel.
The first episode kicks off with Maddie reacting in the first moments after winning the crown. “I can’t believe people believed in me so much,” the singer says, still absorbing her win, On her way to the airport, Maddie runs into a crowd of enthusiastic fans, And she shares a story about how her dad’s suggestion that she audition for American Idol postponed her plan to give up on music altogether.
Next, the singer is whisked away in a private plane headed to New York for a few days of talk show appearances. “I just think this is so cool…all of these cool things I get to do. I’m so excited!” she says.
According to ABC the new digital series will give fans an intimate look at what it means to be the next American Idol. I’m assuming the cameras will follow Maddie around as she tours with the Top 7 and American Idol season 8 winner Kris Allen, beginning in July.
