Diana Or Fantasia?

'American Idol' down to final vote

Georgia's governor gathered hundreds of friends and fans of Diana DeGarmo at the governor's mansion Tuesday to support the "American Idol" finalist, but it may not be enough.

The last night of the singing contest belonged to her competitor, Fantasia Barrino of North Carolina. DeGarmo stumbled in the middle of what had been one of her strongest songs during the series, Melissa Manchester's "Don't Cry Out Loud." Barrino was flawless throughout her performance and the judges heaped praise on her afterwards.

Now, it's up to viewers of the Fox series, who will choose between the 16-year-old DeGarmo and the 19-year-old Barrino.

The winner announced Wednesday night gets a recording contract and instant fame.
