Reality Rocks (New)

Reality Rocks headed to the "American Idol" Season 12 finale this Thursday, where I caught up with a random assortment of past and present Idols on the red carpet, from Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks to some of this year's colorful contestants, as well as fan favorites from Seasons 6 (Blake Lewis), 8 (Gokey, MacIntyre), and 10 (the dream team of Haley and Casey).

Then backstage after the big reveal, judges Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, new winner Candice Glover, and runner-up Kree Harrison all stopped by to talk to the press.

If you're going through post-"Idol" withdrawals, scroll through all of the videos in the carousel below for a megadose of finale-night footage!
