Kris Allen got the title on Wednesday's "American Idol" finale, but that wasn't the show's only highlight.
A major memorable moment was the return of Katrina Darrell, the "Idol" hopeful who auditioned earlier this season wearing nothing but a bikini. Wednesday, she took the stage in her token bikini, and raised many suspicions she'd had plastic surgery. Host Ryan Seacrest even said, "I was going to ask you what's new, but I think I know."
Then, Katrina sang her audition song, "Vision of Love." She was joined mid-song by judge Kara DioGuardi, with whom she fought during auditions. To everyone's surprise, at the end of the song, DioGuardi opened her dress and revealed a black bikini.
Bikini Girl wasn't the only "Idol" auditioner returning to the stage. Nick Mitchell, who earned fans with his comedic alter ego Norman Gentle, performed again. So did drama queen Tatiana Del Toro.
Never miss a local story.
The entertainment roster also included musical guests like Cyndi Lauper, Carlos Santana, KISS, David Cook, Lionel Richie, Keith Urban, The Black Eyed Peas, Rod Stewart, Kiss, Queen Latifah and Steve Martin playing the banjo.
