In a "back to basics" season - it came back to the old school ending...
The newbie has won it all, and with impressive numbers in the biggest turn out of the season. Hopefully some of these people will stick around to see what comes next, and throw their own hat into the a future ring!
Until then though, congratulations to all three of our finalists for making it to this point, you were absolutely amazing and any one of you would have made a fantastic addition to the winner's circle.
With that said, there is only one person who can claim the ultimate prize - our winner of Season 10 - your LJ Idol - is marlawentmad!
