We loved seeing two hours of former Idol finalists coming back to celebrate the 15 years of Idol and crown the winner — Trent Harmon!
Of course, our favorite part was watching Danny Gokey join the soul group of George Huff, Clark Beckham, Elliott Yamin, and Brandon Rogers sing the Temptations hit “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”.
