The American Idol Finale: A Photo Montage

by at . Comments

Lee DeWyze was crowned champion, but that was far from all that went down on American Idol last night.

Paula Abdul returned. Simon Cowell said goodbye. Christina Aguilera and Janet Jackson, among other major acts, performed.

And Bret Michaels shocked the world by coming virtually straight from the hospital to sing a duet with Casey James.

It was a fun night all around, even if the less talented singer (you know it's true!) walked away with the title. Relive various momentn below, via this TV Fanatic montage from the evening:
