American Idol Top 5 Hit CMA Fest (Photos and Videos)

The American Idol Top 5, including winner Maddie Poppe, runner-up Caleb Hutchinson, 2nd runner-up Gabby Barrett and finalists Cade Foehner and Michael J. Woodard headed to Nashville for CMA Fest.

The group did various performances and meet and greets all over town. The Top 3 were introduced on the Opry Stage Friday (June 8) night by season 15 winner Trent Harmon (who performed). And on Saturday, Maddie and Caleb played in the City of Hope softball game for charity. Here are a few highlights.

On Friday night (June 8) Trent Harmon introduced Maddie, Caleb and Gabby to the Opry audience

Earlier in the day, American Idol mentor Bobby Bones aired his syndicated radio show live from the Ryman. Maddie and Caleb both performed.

There were plenty of meet and greets at the American Idol Experience booth. Now I wonder why The Voice doesn’t have a presence?

On Thursday (June 7) Maddie performed her single “Going Going Gone on the Radio Disney stage

And then love bugs Maddie and Caleb joined forces on a duet of “When You Say Nothing at All” by Alison Krauss

Some random photos for you!

Aw. But where is Michael? Not wanting to be the fifth wheel in between the two couples?

OH I FOUND MICHAEL. Try to ignore the obnoxious music.

Super cute couple.

It appears that Gabby and Cade performed on the Disney stage too.

More randomness

Super random – Trent Harmon performed on the Disney stage as well!
