Beyonce, Lady Gaga, J.Lo’s Derriere and Contestant Romance: The American Idol Finale

Seventeen-year old singer Mr. Scotty McCreery is our new American Idol. We had two options: country OR country. Although the results were predictable, the two-hour extravaganza was chock full of A-list performances:

We got a double dose of Beyonce, who if you haven’t noticed has been KILLING IT lately. She performed her hit “Crazy in Love” and debuted her new single “1+1″:

Lady Gaga practically simulated sex with a backup dancer during a somewhat risque performance of “Edge of Glory”:

The fallen idols from this season came back last night to perform with their famous counterparts and really got to showcase their talent.


Haley Reinhard and Tony Bennett sang “Steppin’ Out With My Baby”:

Casey Abrams and Jack Black sing Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls”:

Last night we got to see two out of three judges hit the stage. Marc Anthony, the modern day Ricky Ricardo, performed with his wife and muse J.Lo, who shook her thing on stage with him. J.Lo reminded us that she is and always will be a great dancer:

Steven Tyler whipped out one of his greatest hits, “Dream On,” showing America that he’s still got it:

Finally the moment we’ve all been waiting for… THE RESULTS:

WAIT! Did Scotty and Lauren just kiss? In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Lauren stated: “he might be my boyfriend, ask him!” and when they finally did, Scotty said he was still basically single and ready to mingle. What’s the deal with that?

Who was your favorite performer of the night? Do you think Scotty McCreery deserved to win Idol?
