'DWTS' Adam Rippon & 'American Idol' Maddie Poppe Celebrate Their Wins Together on 'GMA'!

Maddie Poppe and Adam Rippon share a big laugh together as they posed with their trophies outside of the Good Morning America Times Square studio on Tuesday morning (May 22) in New York City.

The 20-year-old singer was celebrating her American Idol win while the 28-year-old Olympic figure skater celebrated his Dancing with the Stars win with his partner, Jenna Johnson, who had the highest combined scores (audience vote, judges) to take the Mirrorball Trophy.

“It still hasn’t sunken in for like any of us,” Adam expressed during their joint appearance on GMA. “You’d be surprised, being America’s sweetheart doesn’t pay anything so if I do get a new nickname, I do hope it pays better than nothing.”

“I made friends on that show who are still are my best friends,” Maddie added. “I know they will be lifelong friends, and I met my boyfriend [Caleb Lee Hutchinson].”
