That was the question on everyone's mind at the star-studded finale of American Idol on Wednesday.
Beckham, 22, and Fradiani, 29, bested 10 other finalists and thousands of other hopefuls during season 14, but in the end only one of them could be named the penultimate American Idol.

The choice to end American Idol did not come easily for Fox, who told reporters on Monday that the decision was an "emotional" one.
"American Idol has been such a vital part of Fox for its run, and we spent a lot of time talking with producers about the future of American Idol and, collectively, we all arrived at the conclusion that it was time to bring the show to an end," said Gary Newman, chairman and CEO at Fox.
The exec added that the show's 15th and final season, which will air in 2016 and will follow the same format as this year – that is, once a week and without a separate results show – will be a "season-long celebration. We're already talking about surprises we can have for the fans to make it feel special."

As judge Jennifer Lopez put it, American Idol's Rayvon Owen is "a cat with nine lives."
For the past four episodes, Owen has been one of two contestants in danger of going home. But week by week he skated by – and on Wednesday's episode, he did it again.

This season of American Idol just may belong to Clark Beckham.
Following a string of strong performances, the season 14 contestant, 22, once again garnered rave reviews from the judges on Wednesday.
"It was beautiful," judge Keith Urban told Beckham after his rendition of The Beatles' "Yesterday." "When you started singing that, I thought ... 'That's a much older song.' And listening to the way people responded to it, it [was] like if Sam Smith did it now. It [was] current, fresh."
