During Maddie Poppe’s Top 7 “American Idol” performance of Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy,” she was encouraged to get out of her comfort zone by celebrity coach Nick Jonas and that’s exactly what she did.
After switching up her hair and makeup, Maddie was an even bigger star, but she also rested on her vocal prowess and not just her new look.
When she finished up, Lionel Richie told her, “It is amazing to watch, it’s amazing what a hairstyle, a jacket change can do. You could be anybody right now. Know that you are powerful in your own voice. No matter what happens in this competition know that you have a future in this business.”
