Perhaps one of the MOST emotional moments of last night's American Idol finale wasn't JUST Phillip Phillips being crowned…but one that came as a blast from Idol's past!
Last night's show had its fair share of Idol alum in the audience — including season three runner-up, Diana DeGarmo and season five's pretty boy, Ace Young!
Though they didn't originally find love on set of the hit show, the current couple got close after starring in the 2010 revival of Broadway's Hair!
The lovebirds' relationship got skyrocketed to the next level during last night's finale, when Ryan Seacrest brought both Ace and Diana up on stage for a surprise PROPOSAL!!!!
Check out the SUPER cute moment that caught Diana (and the whole audience) off-guard (above)!!!
How was the proposal kept so unwraps?! Ace explained:
"I called [producer] Nigel [Lythgoe] directly last week and said, 'I want to do this. I'm going to do this. Is there any way I could do it at the show?' He said 'Yes, I'm not going to tell anybody until the day of … [and] I want you to figure it out with Ryan [Seacrest]."
Okay, now for OUR proposal — let's have the original Idol gang as the wedding party!!! Simon Cowell as best man and Paula Abdul as maid of honor, anybody? Ha!
Sorry Steven and Jennifer (and Kara, Ellen…), you'll just have to sit this one out! LOLz!
