'American Idol': The Final Three Are Revealed

Ryan revealed "just under 20 million votes" had poured in. Though she was last to take the stage, which could have negatively impacted her vote, her consistently adventurous song choices have clearly resonated with audiences.

When it comes to leading by example, Carrie Underwood conquered the stage and her own fears and doubts following her facial and wrist injury after a fall.

"Holy monkeys I was super excited to meet Carrie Underwood", Barrett exclaimed. Impressed with her vocal range, judge Katy Perry cracked, "Who are you and what have you done with Gabby?" Richie agreed Gabby was "fabulous". That's when my dad came along and said that "American Idol" was having auditions. Luke liked how Cade made the song his own and also complimented his growth in confidence. Her advice to Michael is to bring more sass and attitude to his performance; but she also tells him to let it build up during the song. "He said, 'I like you just how you are.' He didn't want me to put makeup on". Richie thinks Caleb is as real as it comes.

"She got the time to talk with Carrie without the cameras". Perry thinks his parents created something special with this kid, with is talent and humor, and Katy said when he turns 21, she'd like to have a beer with him.

The second song everyone performed was one dedicated to their mothers, as the episode broadcast on Mother's Day. Gabby Barrett took Underwood's spirit to heart as she embodied the strength and soul within to burst into a fiery performance of "Last Name".

The judges raved and went wild over the performance. After receiving a standing ovation, Michael was told by Lionel, "You are anointed, my friend". He chose Underwood's "So Small" followed by "Stars in Alabama" by Jamey Johnson.

Luke Bryan: "You guys are stealing what I was gonna say, so I have nothing to say, which is rare".

Underwood then shared a message for all her fellow moms, writing, "Happy Mother's Day!".

So of that Top 5, the Top 3 should have been Maddie, Gabby and Michael.
