Megan Danielle is quickly making a name for herself in the music industry with her success on this season of “American Idol.” The 21-year-old singer and songwriter received the last spot in the show’s “victory zone” on Monday (April 24), making her one of the show’s 12 remaining contestants.
Danielle sang Lauren Daigle’s “Thank God I Do” after host Ryan Seacrest announced she had won America’s vote.
“It was Lauren Daigle who inspired her and sang with her back in the Vegas auditions, and she’s paying homage again to her tonight,” Seacrest said.

Seacrest was referring to Danielle’s Feb. 19 audition, in which Daigle, a 2012 “American Idol” alum, surprisingly appeared to join the rising star in a duet of her Grammy Award-winning song, “You Say.”
“I made the #Top12 of @AmericanIdol!” Danielle posted on Instagram. “There’s no voting tonight but get ready to support me again next Sunday! It’s the first live coast-to-coast vote! Thank you so much for your love and support and helping me to this point! Also – A HUGE shout out to @lauren_daigle !!! Thank you for writing this song. You’re such an inspiration and I’ll never give up. #IDOL #Top12.”
