American Idol Winner Trent Harmon Reacts To Mississippi's Anti-LGBT Law, Idol Runner-Up's Controversial Comments

no title

Now this is how you give an answer!

The winner of the final season of American Idol, Trent Harmon, is faring far better than the show's runner-up, La'Porsha Renae, after she was embroiled in a scandal over saying some pretty unwelcome things about LGBT people.

And while Renae pays the price for those comments, Harmon is doing things the right way — and that means knowing exactly what to say and how to behave when he gets asked a question about gay rights!

Speaking to TV Guide, the singing sensation shared his very level-headed thoughts on his home state of Mississippi's blatant anti-gay legislation, as well as his runner-up's response (below):

American Idol Runner-Up La'Porsha Renae Celebrates Her Long Run On The Show With Anti-Gay Comments?! See What She Said HERE!

no title

Well, she didn't win on American Idol, and now she's causing some controversy!

After La'Porsha Renae finished second behind Trent Harmon on the Idol finale this week, despite long being the frontrunner to win the show right up until the very end, she got on a conference call Friday afternoon with reporters… and let loose!!

A reporter asked the singer if she were planning to leave her native Mississippi, now that she's also luckily signed to a record deal despite finishing second, and Renae indicated that, yes, she would be leaving for Los Angeles or another larger city.

However, when another reporter asked if the singer had been following her home stat's anti-LGBT controversy — and Renae said that she had not — is when the interesting stuff started.

The singer started discussing gay rights and same-sex marriage, admitting that it's not exactly something she's familiar with, despite showing tolerance.

She started off by saying:

The Ratings Are In — American Idol Said Goodbye To A LOT Of People On Thursday Night!

no title

What a ratings boom! A little too late though…

Simon Cowell, Barack Obama, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and a whole host of others showed up for the series finale of American Idol on Thursday night, and that star power helped ensure a LOT of people watched the last episode ever of the impactful show!

While last season's finale was an all-time low for the music competition show, the star-studded appearances — and let's be honest, the idea that this was the last Idol ep EVER — ensured that last night's finale was up 76% in the 18-49 demographic, and up 61% in total viewers from the week before!!

Related: Watch The Emotional AI Reunion!

In total, the show drew 12.94 million people in to watch the two-hour finale, which was the best ratings for a finale that Idol has gotten in three years.

The FOX show sure may not be what it once was, but we can't forget how it influenced pop culture and gave us so many stars, like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and more.

It appears viewers didn't forget that nostalgia, either — and sent Idol off into the sunset the right way!

Did U watch last night?! What'd U think of the finale??

Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia, & More Bid Adieu To American Idol With A Major Fashion Bang

Stars arrive for American Idol Farewell Season Finale.

It's so hard to say goodbye. But we must.

The American Idol Farewell Season Finale took place in LA Thursday night, bringing all the nostalgia with past winners and contestants showing up on the red carpet.

Related: Watch The Emotional AI Reunion!

Led by Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, and Fantasia in shimmering, impossible-to-miss gowns, it was truly a wondrous night.

J.Lo was in full diva mode, naturally, with her princess-inspired Elie Madi sparkling gown featuring a buoyant high-low hem that extended all the way down to the floor.

She's the queen of Idol and we don't care if she wasn't there from the very beginning!

Of course Carrie Underwood was total royalty herself in an embellished Yanina Couture number with sheer skirt that showed off her always enviable legs.

And Fantasia also stepped it up in a silver glittering gown with low neckline and leg slit. She seriously lived up to her name, looking like a fantasy and all!

However, these three were certainly not the only showstoppers, as Jordin Sparks, Katharine McPhee, and Pia Toscano also made heads swivel (below).

Kelly Clarkson's 21-Month-Old Daughter Waves Goodbye To American Idol In The Most Adorable Way Ever!

Kelly Clarkson

Still got the blues about American Idol being officially over?

We've got just the cure!

The singing competition show went out with a bang last night — and although Kelly Clarkson couldn't be at the live event because she is about to give birth to her second child, she still performed a medley of her classic hits PLUS an acoustic version of A Moment Like This.

All the feels!!!

But the real cuteness came after the show when Miz Clarkson's baby girl River Rose adorably said farewell to the FOX series responsible for her momma's career.

Thursday night's American Idol series finale had EVERYTHING we could have ever hoped for!

Aside from crowning the winner, Jennifer Lopez performed her new song Ain't Your Mama as well as Let's Get Loud, and ALL your favorite Idol contestants took the stage to say goodbye!

Video: J.Lo Performs Ain't Your Mama & Let's Get Loud On The Idol Finale!

While there were so many great moments from the epic sendoff, one of our favorites HAD to be Simon Cowell making a surprise appearance and reuniting with his former fellow judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson — and of course host Ryan Seacrest!

What made this so special was Cowell, who often has nothing but harsh things to say, got a bit misty as he reflected on all the fun memories of working on the show. Simon even admitted he was a bit emotional as he said:
