Ace Young proposes to Diana DeGarmo with the lights and "results" soundtrack and all playing, which is actually totally fitting and kind of cute in a super sappy way, and all the best to them - although they weren't actually on the same season of Idol, the two were co-stars in Hair on Broadway. Hollie performs "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel with Jordin Sparks, and Jessica performs "And I Am Telling You" from Dreamgirls.
Jessica's joined by Jennifer Holliday. Both of them seem like they're not at all willing to be outsung by the other, which spawns a performance of crazy good vocals and facial expressions that make both look absolutely insane. Finally, Aerosmith performs (it's...slightly better than I thought it'd be given the average age of the band), and Jessica and Phillip sing a duet of "Up Where We Belong," then it's at last time for results.
And the Season 11 American Idol is...Phillip Phillips!
I mean, I knew that Phil was going to win (I totally called it), but American Idol has probably been a huge dream of Jessica's since she was, like, five. So I can't help but feel a little badly for her - but I really do feel like both of them were deserving in different ways and Phil breaks down during his finale song for a touching finish to the finale. What do you think? Did America make the right choice? Sound off below!
