Jennifer Lopez in a sexy bra top! An Aerosmith concert! Rihanna! A live marriage proposal, and, lest we forget, a brand-new American Idol.
These were only some of the highlights of Wednesday night's "American Idol" finale, which crowned handsome (and talented) 21-year-old Phillip Phillips the Season 11 winner. Yes, it's the fifth year in a row that a white guy won, but who's counting?
As usual, the "Idol" finale had something for everyone. Season 3 winner Fantasia joined third-place finalist Joshua Ledet (“Mantasia”) for a rollicking performance of Elton John’s classic “Take Me to the Pilot.” Season 5 finalist Ace Young proposed to Season 3 runner-up Diana DeGarmo, live on the "Idol" stage. And then there were the aforementioned performances from Rihanna, J-Lo and Aerosmith.
From "Idol" to "Grey's Anatomy" to "House," let us know: What was 2012's best season finale?
