American Idol Photo Gallery: The 21 Best Performances of Season 11!

Time flies when you’re having fun, and that adage certainly applies to American Idol‘s fantastic eleventh season — an intense, talent-packed, five-month affair that will end in tears, cheers, and a tidal wave of confetti when either Jessica Sanchez or Phillip Phillips takes home the crown a little later this evening.
