Maddie Poppe took the crown in ABC's reboot of American Idol in last night's season finale.

"I watched Maddie at church, sing in Sunday School," says Mike Ruby, who is organized Poppe's concert during her homecoming episode. "She was on the backstage setup crew ... helping set up concerts for other acts."

Fellow Christian Cade Foehner made it to the top 10 this season.

Of Maddie, he says: "You are one of the most unapologetically honest people I've ever met. You are one of only people who sounds just as angelic in a hotel room for three people as you do on a stage in front of millions."

The season finale also revealed Poppe is dating runner-up Caleb Lee Hutchinson.

Hutchinson is a believer as well.

The couple is open about their faith on social media. Here are some examples:
