After a long wait and weeks of competitions, Kris Allen finally won the coveted title of American Idol.
The finale was held at the Nokia Theatre on Wednesday night where Kris Allen and Adam Lambert performed on the idol stage.
100 million votes were casted and a winner was announced at the end of the spectacular musical evening.
The finale lasted two hours. David Cook told Ryan, “I don’t know that America can get this wrong.”
Adam Lambert was considered the best participant of the show. Kris Allen beat out Adam Lambert and this is the biggest upset in eight seasons. Simon also said Lambert is a “worldwide star.” This was after Tuesday’s performance. Adam sounded a lot stronger on that performance.
Upon hearing the results, Kris could say nothing but, “Adam deserves this.”
The show started with all the 13 season on stage. They were all clad in white and put up an amazing show.
Duets between finalists and seasoned stars started leading to good results. Adam was dressed in black leather and sang a great medley with ‘Kiss’. Kris on the other hand performed with Keith Urban on “Kiss a Girl.”
Megan Joy and Michael Sarver sang a duet on a song by Steve Martin called “Pretty Flowers.” Martin played the banjo.
Allison Iraheta joined by Cyndi Lauper on “Time After Time”. This was the best moment of the night. It was a touching performance.
They also included the Golden Idol awards and Nick Mitchell, a.k.a Norman Gentle, and Katrina Darrell, a.k.a Bikini Girl came back on stage.
