CLARKSVILLE (KWWL) - After quite the homecoming earlier this week, Governor Kim Reynolds declared today, May 20, as "Maddie Poppe Day". 

The top three finalist on the current American Idol competition held a free concert at the Butler County Fair Grounds on Tuesday night.

Singing to a crowd of thousands, Poppe was emotional as she took in the signs, familiar faces, and the many new faces who turned out for the hometown concert. 

"Now, I am here and you guys have been there through it all. You all have, really," said Poppe to the crowd.

Governor Reynolds was there for the homecoming and declared May 20 as "Maddie Poppe Day". Tonight is a big night for Iowa's Idol as final voting begins.

Here's a reminder on how you can vote: 

Each person can send 10 votes through the ABC website, 10 votes through the American Idol app, and 10 votes by texting the number “10” ten times to 21523.

'American Idol' will air both tonight and tomorrow night, when the winner will be revealed. 

Go Maddie!
