The crowd went absolutely crazy for Madison in a pep rally at Shaker High School, where she sang "Falllin'" by Alicia Keys.

The high school choir serenaded Madison as she arrived on campus and at the pep rally.

A concert was scheduled for later in the day at The Crossings.

Madison will find out on Sunday night whether she will be crowned the next "American Idol."
