Lowest-rating American Idol finale in history

American Idol has posted its worst numbers for a season finale in its history.

The season 11 finale this week, where Phillip Phillips was crowned the winner over Jessica Sanchez, was watched by 21.5 million people, which is down 26% on last season.

While the numbers are still big for a single show of any kind, they are well down on previous finales, including that of season one way back in 2002.

This year’s finale was certainly not short of star power, with appearances by Rihanna, John Fogerty, Reba McEntire and Steven Tyler’s Aerosmith.
