Former “American Idol” contestant Ace Young popped the question on the Fox show finale last night (May 23) and it wasn’t who won? He proposed to another Idol alum Diana DeGarmo on stage.

Yes, she accepted.

Host Ryan Seacrest took a few moments to acknowledge the couple who have been living together since January. Come on up here for a second,” he said to the couple.

“It’s amazing what can happen out of this show.”

I hear you guys have some big news you moved in together,” Seacrest said.

“This has always been home to us and I felt that this would be the perfect place to ask a simple question,” said Young.

Well the, dim the lights,” he commanded. Young took it from there.

“We have conquered Broadway together. We have created our new music together,” he continued after dropping to one knee. “We have an amazing group of people around us. And with the help of David Webb jewelry (insert promotional plug here) I have a way to make this last forever.

“Are you ready?” he asked.

“I love you to death. You’re my best friend. 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. Diana Nicole DeGarmo, will you marry me?”

The best DeGarmo, in tears, could do was nod her head and say “yes.”

“I’m so speechless right now,” she said. “Wow, babe, you picked a good one! My makeup’s running.”
