AceShowbiz - It's a defining moment for %cLa'Porsha Renae% and %cTrent Harmon% on "American Idol" series finale Thursday, April 7.

Trent praised God as he's showered with confetti. "God is real," he said while embracing the runner-up La'Porsha. He held back tears as he sang his winning song "Falling." Earlier that night, the last two finalists teamed up for a rendition of %cMarvin Gaye% and %cKim Weston%'s "It Takes Two".

"I'd like to say on behalf of us, thank you America for inviting us into your homes. Thank you to the contestants, to FOX for actually putting us on air, to you guys for actually being my best friends now, and I am going to miss you," he said to Paula and Randy.
