Love, passion, happiness, romance, joy, sadness, surprise and much more, the grand finale of ‘American Idol’ Season 11 showed almost all the emotions at one stage. Wednesday was the time when the world was waiting to hear the name of the new ‘Idol’. But there wasn’t only one winner of the evening. Surprised? There was one who won the millions of hearts through his electrifying performance in season 11 and then there was one who won the heart and hearts by his romantic expressions.
Ok… no more puzzles. The winner of American Idol season 11 was Phillip Phillips who got a record-high 132 million votes after his final performance on Tuesday. This 21-year pawn shop worker from Georgia defeated his fellow contestant Jessica Sanchez, a high school girl in the competition.
After the victory was declared, Phillip took the audience to “Home” which would be his first post-winning single. He got very emotional and thanked the fans and crew for their support and votes.
Before the ‘Idol’ champion was crowned, host Ryan Seacrest took a moment and called American Idol alums Ace Young and Diana DeGramo on stage to know about their moving together plans. And this was the time when love, romance and again a new surprise aired in the Nokia Theatre. Ace thanked American Idol to be his home and proposed Diana on the stage with a spectacular gemstone engagement ring.
So in all Wednesday was a memorable day in the history of American Idol. Season 11 has ended with some remarkable brilliance. Ace and Diana titled the first engaged couple and Phillip was the fifth male in a row to win the ‘American Idol’ title.
