In a two-hour extravaganza, Phillip Phillips takes the Season 11 win of American Idol! Hey Idol fans, you're watching ClevverMusic. The Season 11 American Idol finale took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last night, and after 132 million votes, America chose Leesburg, Georgia native Phillip Phillips as its Idol. To many it was clear that Phillip would win, as he was never in the bottom three, and always stayed true to artistry and style.
In the star studded finale, Phillip Phillips sang "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" with his Idol John Fogerty, while Jessica did an incredible duet with her Idol Jennifer Holliday, touted the best performance of the night by Randy Jackson. That's saying a lot, considering Rihanna and fellow Idol judges J.Lo and Steven Tyler (and Aerosmith) performed on the show as well.
Top 12 contestants from the season were back for the finale, where the girls performed a medley of songs with Chaka Khan and the boys a medley with Neil Diamond. 3rd place Idol Joshua Ledet sang a duet with his Idol Fantasia Barrino, Skylar Laine belted "Turn On The Radio" with Reba McEntire, and Hollie Cavanagh was joined by Idol Alum Jordin Sparks for "You'll Never Walk Alone."
Aside from astounding performances, there were tons of surprises on the show, including Idols first engagement. Past Idol Ace Young surprised fellow Idol girlfriend Diana DeGarmo with a marriage proposal, and of course she said YES!
In the end, Ryan Seacrest announced Phillip Phillips as Season 11's winner and a tearful Phillip sang his Idol single, "Home" to close the show.
