Scotty McCreery is the new American Idol! The teenaged country singer beat Lauren Alaina to win the the title which capped off a spectacular show. The two hour Season 10 finale took place at the Nokia Theatre in downtown  Los Angeles and they really packed in as much as they could. Beyonce dazzled on stage, Jennifer Lopez sparkled in a very JLo-esque jumpsuit and old and new American Idol contestants turned up in hordes. Like Sanjaya Malakar — remember him? A lot of this seasons contestants got to sing with their idols like Tony Bennett, Tim McGrawTom JonesJudas Priest …. and Lady Gaga! Jack Black rocking out? Classic!

But more than anything, we were just happy to see some of our contestants and winners of past American Idol’s. Adam Lambert who was so glam it hurt, Allison Iraheta, Jason Castro (with his preggers wife Mandy Mayhall), Kris Allen… the list goes on. We’ve put a gallery of arrivals at the event so you can memory check everyone who came. Congratulations, Scotty! Can you believe he’s just 17? What a massive moment for country music.

Idol‘s Jason Castro Gets Married!

Dreadlocked American Idol contestant Jason Castro revealed his marriage to girlfriend Mandy Mayhall on Twitter over the weekend. Castro proposed last Halloween weekend—in costume!—at a Sooners game in Oklahoma. Tweeted the singer, “yesterday I married the girl of my dreams…it couldn’t have been more perfect! Now, honeymoooon!!! :)” Sounds like it could have been a little better healthwise, though, judging from the posts before (“Theraflu and bed. goodnight world, goodbye sickness!”) and after (“Oh gosh this medicine is rockin my stomach…Haha I’m hoping for a smooth flight!”).

Castro, who made it to Idol‘s Final Four in 2008 on the strength of his acoustic ballads before imploding with a hysterical rendition of “I Shot The Sheriff,” will release his debut album in March. Check out the gallery for pics of the couple, as well as one of his proposal (those are Beauty & The Beast costumes, fyi).
