The 2012 edition of "American Idol" had what many called one of the most talented crop of singers in the show's recent memory. In the end, it was Georgia's guitar-picking Phillip Phillips taking home the victory, with young diva Jessica Sanchez claiming the runner-up spot.
Wednesday night, "American Idol" crowned another winner, but it also produced a newly-engaged couple, as Season 5's Ace Young proposed onstage to Season 3's Dianna DeGarmo during the Season 11 finale broadcast.
During the long, grueling "American Idol" season, Phillip Phillips was never once revealed to be in the group of lowest vote-getters on the show. On Wednesday night, his name was finally announced -- but for a totally different reason.
The opening of Tuesday night's episode of "American Idol" presented the juxtaposition and similarities between the two remaining finalists. They both came from different sides of the United States, but of course shared the same common dream: becoming the winner of the show's 11th season.
Despite persistent rumors that judge Jennifer Lopez may be leaving at season's end, the top three episode of "American Idol" (May 16) came and went without a hitch. Though on the topic of judges, what on earth got into Steven Tyler last night?
Despite concerns that new judge Howard Stern's wouldn't translate well to the family-friendly audience of "America's Got Talent," he blended in well -- if even a little too well. Monday night's (May 14) premiere of "AGT" was lackluster at best, with plenty of talent, but no million-dollar performers.
It's inevitable -- by the end of a season of "American Idol," it gets to the point where the remaining singers are good enough that there may very well be no performances that could be considered 'bad.'
