LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bluesy guitar man Phillip Phillips of Leesburg, Ga., wins 11th "American Idol" crown.
"American Idol" can count a marriage proposal as part of its 11-season history.
Former contestants Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo became engaged on stage during Wednesday night's finale.
Young, a season five finalist, told host Ryan Seacrest that he and DeGarmo had just moved in together. Then Young got down on one knee and popped the question to her.
DeGarmo, a runner-up in season three, tearfully accepted, her head bobbing up and down.
