American Idol Winner and Finale Photos

Last night, it came down to two finalists on American Idol: Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. Ultimately, 17 year old Scotty McCreery from Garner, North Carolina was voted the winner in the tenth season of American Idol. Fox says that a record-shattering number of votes was cast last night. Over 122 million, to be exact, which is the highest number in the show’s history.

Both finalists performed three songs during the episode: Alaina performed ‘Flat on the Floor,”Maybe It Was Memphis’and ‘Like My Mother Does’; and McCreery sang ‘Gone,”Check Yes or No’and ‘I Love You This Big.’

But the special two hour episode wasn’t just about crowning the winner. It was also about a whole slew of performances. The top 12 boys and girls performed – together and with other singers and stars.

Judas Priest, Kirk Franklin and Gladys Knight, Jack Black, Beyoncé, Tony Bennett, Lil Jon and TLC, Tim McGraw, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Sheila E., Sir Tom Jones, Lady Gaga, Carrie Underwood, Bono, The Edge and Reeve Carney, and Steven Tyler all stopped by the show to perform as part of the finale celebrations and perform with various American Idol contestants.

Below is a video of the last five minutes of the American Idol finale, including host Ryan Seacrest announcing the winner. As well, we have a lot of photos from the finale show, including the guest performers.
