Which Celebrities Attended The American Idol Season Finale, And Who Was The Winner?

American Idol Season 11 Finale

Another year, and another season of American Idol has run its course. But before we tell you who the Season 11 winner is, we wanted to discuss who turned up for the results show. As expected, AI alumni swarmed. One of the most famous of this group is Carrie Underwood, who arrived looking super glam in Badgley Mischka along with her husband, Mike Fisher. Jordin Sparks looked lovely in white, along with Jason Derulo. Taylor Hicks, Fantasia, Pia Toscano, Haley Reinhart and a fair few posed on the carpet too. It was a particularly special night for two past Idol-ers. Remember Ace Young and Diana Degarmo? Well, they’ve been dating for some time now, and he actually proposed to her onstage at the show! She said yes, of course. We were also correct in assuming that Rihanna would have dreadlocks while performing, because that’s precisely the look she rocked while singing “Where Have You Been.”

Apart from the American Idol family, a few other familiar faces did pop up as well, to watch. Janice Dickinson, Jane Lynch, Melora Hardin, Chaka KhanJulianne Hough and Jane Seymour were all spotted. But no matter who was in the audience, the night, quite rightly, belonged to the two final contestants — Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. Who won the show? We’ve got the gallery of celebrities followed right by the jump, that’ll take you to the answer!

Taylor Hicks Vs. Danny Gokey: Who’s Better?

Idol front-runner Danny Gokey is frequently compared to Season 6 winner Taylor Hicks, thanks to their gritty voices and stocky bodies (“I’d like think I was just a little bit better dancer,” Hicks said in March). Though they didn’t duet (for better or worse), the pair finally shared the stage yesterday. Though some critics think Gokey is a pale imitation of Hicks, after last night’s Belushi-tastic performance of “Seven Mile Breakdown,” it could be argued that Gokey is a drastic improvement.
