It's an American Idol shocker – but it's not what you think!

Show alumni Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young got engaged on stage at the show's season 11 finale on Wednesday night.

Before announcing the results of the competition between finalists Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips, Ryan Seacrest acknowledged former contestants, including the couple whom PEOPLE first reported moved in together in January.

Seacrest called them both to the stage and said, "dim the lights," like he does at every results show. As the elimination night music played, Young, 31, said, "This has always been home to us and I felt that this would be the perfect place to ask a simple question."

Originally posted 01/12/2012 07:15AM

Nearly two years after falling in love, American Idol alumni Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo are opening up about their relationship.

Season 5 heartthrob Young, 31, and season 3's runner-up DeGarmo, 24, met in the spring of 2010 when both signed on to costar in the Broadway revival of the musical Hair.

"We became best friends through Hair, ironically not through Idol," says DeGarmo, who now plays as a New Jersey Mob boss's daughter on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless. "It just blossomed into a beautiful relationship."

"It's so freeing," the Colorado native says of Hair's infamous group nude scene.

Young, 29, premiered with fellow former Idol Diana DeGarmo in the Broadway musical earlier this month. "If I could walk down 42nd Street with a bar of soap and let the rain clean me, I would," he says. "I'm comfortable with my body."
