Ace Young Proposes to Diana DeGarmo on American Idol Finale!

by at .

Move over, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. Ace Young just stole your spotlight.

About a half hour prior to American Idol announcing its season 11 champion tonight, Young and Diana DeGarmo - who met during a production of Hair - were called on to the stage by Ryan Seacrest.

Young then got down on one knee, and in a proposal/product placement for Dave Webb Jewelry, said to his live-in girlfriend:

"I want to make this last forever, and I will do anything in my power to have the most amazing life together, if you will have me."

Through tears, DeGarmo accepted!

“I’m so speechless right now,” she said after Young put the engagement ring on her finger. “My makeup’s running!”

Diane finished second on the third season of Idol in 2004, while Young placed seventh on season five. Congrats to the happy couple!
