The ‘American Idol’ finale is almost as hot of a red carpet party as any major award show. Stars from all over the world of music and movies turned up to get a glimpse of this year’s winner being crowned ‘American Idol’ champion. The honor went to Phillip Phillips this year, but a familiar face to country fans was on stage to do the honors.

Scotty McCreery, Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher, Reba McEntire, Lauren Alaina and Julianne Hough all made appearances before, during or after the finale on Wednesday night (May 23). Country music hopeful Skylar Laine was also featured plenty — the Brandon, Miss. native had no fewer than three outfit changes during the broadcast. Enjoy this gallery of all the famous Nashville names who turned out.
