'American Idol' Finale Winner: Beyonce
I trust we can all agree on this one, right? Scotty McCreery was the winner of "American Idol," but the winner of "American Idol" Finale Night was Beyonce, who burst on-stage like a fireball to teach the "Idol" women how to sing and dance with assertive sex appeal and then returned later to debut her new single "1 + 1," which taught all of America some very basic math. Beyonce gave the two best performances of the night and nobody would have begrudged her for returning a third time.
