"My first time voting for a contestant since I don't know when !!!! Gotta support !!!!" she captioned the pic.

Season 6 contestant Melina Doolittle also tweeted her support of the artist, writing, "Listen, if @kelly_clarkson wants her as a bookend, who am I to deny that? Y'all. I can't deal. La. Flipping. Porsha. #SingHEFFA Are you kidding me?! #IdolFinale #IdolTop2... Freak. LaPorsha just sang the living daylights out of that! Shoot y'all. I packed my shoes so I didn't break the hotel tv but... #IdolFinale."

As for La'Porsha, the Top 2 finalist seemed incredibly moved by her celebrity support. After dedicating her rendition of "Diamonds" to her young daughter in Wednesday night's show, she responded to Clarkson's tweet, writing, "Thank you so much!! I'm balling like a baby! Feeling so blessed! #IdolFinale."

La'Porsha will go up against fellow finalist and Mississippian, Trent Harmon, during Thursday night's two-hour, star-studded finale.

"This is the stuff that they write into movies," Trent told ET. "Two Mississippians make it to the Top 2 of the last season of the greatest singing competition ever. It's kind of freaky."
