American Idol Finale was full of shocker this Wednesday! Season 11's finalists, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips, both had a big night. They heard performances by some of the biggest names in music today - Rihanna, Reba McEntire, and Judge Jennifer Lopez.
"After a record breaking 132 million votes," Seacrest said at the end of a two-hour broadcast, "the winner of American Idol season 11 is ... Phillip Phillips!"
This is not all. Before announcing the results Ryan Seacrest acknowledged former contestants, including the couple whom PEOPLE first reported moved in together in January.
Seacrest called them both to the stage and said, "dim the lights," like he does at every results show. As the elimination night music played, Young said, "This has always been home to us and I felt that this would be the perfect place to ask a simple question."
Then he got down on one knee and continued: "We have conquered Broadway together. We have created our new music together. We have an amazing group of people around us. And with the help of David Webb jewelry I have a way to make this last forever. Are you ready?
"I love you to death. You're my best friend. I want to make this last forever and I will do anything in my power to have the most ... amazing life together if you will have me. Diana Nicole DeGarmo, will you marry me?"
A tearful DeGarmo nodded and said yes.
"I'm so speechless right now," she said with a new ring on her finger. "Wow, babe, you picked a good one! My makeup's running."
Wow! What a romantic proposal!
