American Idol finalist Gaby Barrett sang the Journey classic “Don’t Stop Believin’” on this season’s American Idol finale last night. She didn’t know until she had finished that there was a very special guest in the audience. Former “Journey” singer Steve Perry was hidden in the audience.
Last night’s performances were the first part of a two-part special, which aired last night (May 20). Barrett also sang Miranda Lambert’s “Little Red Wagon” and original song “Rivers Deep.”
The second half of the American Idol finale will air tonight on ABC, when the winner will be announced. Barrett is set against two other finalists, Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe – who performed a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide,” which you can watch below.
