Before Phillip Phillips was announced the winner of American Idol Season 11 on Wednesday, fans were treated to a stunning proposal. Brett Asa "Ace" Young, a Season 5 contestant, proposed to girlfriend and Season 3 runner-up Diana DeGarmo, live on television. Thankfully, DeGarmo said yes.

"This has always been home to us and I felt that this would be the perfect place to ask a simple question," Young, 31, told DeGarmo in front of host Ryan Seacrest, who had invited the couple onstage. The two Idol alums met while appearing in the Broadway musical Hair in 2010.

"We have conquered Broadway together. We have created our new music together. We have an amazing group of people around us. And with the help of David Webb jewelry I have a way to make this last forever. Are you ready?" Ace asked, fighting back tears and dropping to his knee. "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?"

DeGarmo, also crying, accepted the 18-carat yellow gold platinum and diamond piece and showed it to the audience.
