Your 2018 American Idol Maddie Poppe stopped by Girls World Expo in Des Moines on Sunday. The expo was focused on helping young girls make positive choices and do positive things with their lives. Maddie is a story of determination. She tried out for the Voice, didn't make it, but kept going and ended up winning American Idol with her incredible talents.
During the Q&A at the event, she talked of how she had been in that very spot trying to get people to hire her to perform at fairs and festivals to no luck.
She, also, talked about her weird association with chicken strips.
