Romance was in the air on the ‘American Idol‘ Season 11 finale tonight (May 23), when Season 5 contestant Ace Young got down on one knee to propose to Season 3 runner-up Diana DeGarmo.

Host Ryan Seacrest was addressing all the ‘Idol’ alum in the crowd when he escorted Young and DeGarmo on to the stage. The lights dimmed, and Young delivered the sweetest, sappiest and most “aw” inducing speech!

He stated that they both conquered Broadway, created music, have an amazing group of friends around them and said he wanted to make the fun last forever. That’s when he pulled out the ring and asked her to marry him, saying he loves her to death and she is his best friend.

Through tears, she smiled and said yes, with Seacrest standing beside them, smiling approvingly.

You see, ‘Idol’ is not just about jump-starting careers, creating superstars and entertaining millions of American viewers week in and week out, year in and year out. It’s also about fostering love.

Congrats to Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo on their engagement, witnessed by millions. Have a happy life, guys. Make talented babies, too. How can they not, with that musical DNA?
