LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "American Idol" can count a marriage proposal as part of its 11-season history.

Former contestants Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo became engaged on stage during Wednesday night's finale.

Young, a season five finalist, told host Ryan Seacrest that he and DeGarmo had just moved in together. Then Young got down on one knee and popped the question to her.

DeGarmo, a runner-up in season three, tearfully accepted, her head bobbing up and down.
