On tonight's "American Idol" season finale Scotty McCreery beat Lauren Alaina to be crowned the tenth season champion. Yesterday, the final two performed three songs each - their season favorite, a song chosen by their idols and an original song that will be their first single. The judges loved both contestants, but seemed to give the edge to Lauren. Tonight, all the former contestants returned and performed with artists such as Judas Priest, Gladys Knight, Beyonce, Tom Jones, Tony Bennett, Jack Black, Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood. Lady Gaga, U2, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez's husband Marc Anthony also performed. The finale culminated with Ryan revealing that Scotty received the most votes and was the American Idol 2011 winner!
