Today is the day! We can't wait to talk to Maine's favorite American Idol contestant.

She has been a very busy woman the last few months, but finally, we will get the chance to have a chat with Julia Gagnon, this morning at 8:30, on the Z Morning Show.

Julia was in Bangor on Sunday night, making a surprise appearance during the Jason Mraz concert at Maine Savings Amphitheater, for a duet of his song "Lucky"

The two previously got together during the Idol finale to sing "I Feel Like Dancing"

After becoming an overnight sensation, when she shocked everyone by cracking the Top 7 on American Idol, Julia Gagnon, who is from Cumberland, is back home, and ready to perform all across the State of Maine this summer.
