Kris Allen Wins American Idol!

by at . Comments

From handsome also-ran to American Idol champion.

Kris Allen completed an incredible journey this week by being named the eighth-ever winner of the most popular show on television.

Overlooked when the competition began - at the outset, Simon Cowell even suggested that Allen should keep his marriage a secret because he would only advance based on his looks - Allen shed his underdog label and overcame Adam Lambert in a tightly-contested finale.

What was Allen's reaction upon winning? He said: "Adam deserves this. I'm sorry." Class act (and we agree!).

Will Kris follow in the successful footsteps of past victors such as Carrie Underwood? Or the anonymous footsteps of champs such as Reuben Studdard?

Only time will tell. For now, let's just wish a hearty congratulations to one of the most unexpected winners in show history!

Kris needed to win, not some guy living in Hollywood who knows a bunch of celebs and has been in musical theater since he was a kid. Give the new guy a chance, we all know Adam is doing great.

i can't believe stupid people are scattered all over the world!OBVIOUSLY ADAM IS NOT A GREAT SINGER!KRIS ALLEN IS THE TRUE SINGER. KRIS DESERVED EVERYTHING. SINGING IS DIFFERENT FROM SCREECHING! STUPID BITCHES DON'T KNOW THAT BECAUSE THEY'RE CERTIFIED STUPID!!! THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE ANY BACKGROUND IN MUSIC, IF I WERE YOU THINK BEFORE YOU REACT. THE REAL HEART OF SINGING IS HAVING A VOICE THAT IS RELAXING TO ONE'S EARS NOT BY MEANS OF SHOUTING AND SCREECHING!!!! KRIS ALLEN RULES. EVERYTHING IS FAIR. KRIS HAS MORE FANS THAN ADAM. ADAM'S FANS ARE NOT SPORT!!! THEY DON'T HAVE MORALITY!! STUPID SATANISTS!!! JUST GO TO HELL!! ADAM'S VOICE IS DECEIVING!!! SO MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT IT IS IMPRESSING BUT TRULY IT'S SO ANNOYING!!!! KRIS IS THE REAL IDOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KRIS IS A LOT BETTER THAN ADAM! NO MORE DOUBT KRIS IS THE BEST!!!

I really think Kris deserved it because in my opinion Adam was just getting annoying and just screaming all the time which is pretty bad if it annoyed me considering i listen to hardcore screamo!! Not to mention he was becoming way too cocky like he had already won it and that probably turned a lot of people in kris' direction..just sayin'

Like it or not, Kris won. You think Adam Fuckerlambert will actually get lots of recording companies bidding for him and stuff? You think Idol would let a gay win? Its all a fucking conspiracy. Adam Lambert should stop being all about himself.
And all those "Omg Adam should have gotten it Kris should just kill himself" - get a fucking life. Adam Lambert does not fucking know you fucking assholes even exist. W.A.K.E.U.P.

I have faithfully watched AI for eight seasons with my three daughters and husband, and I have never been blown away by any of the talent; until Adam Lambert! Kris Allen belongs in his home town bar that's about how far his voice will carry. He strains and squeaks to hit any challenging note, any many of those are flat! I can't stand watching him sing with his crooked mouth. Adam on the other hand has the most amazing voice, when he sings it is effortless, not to mention he is gorgeous and has all the charisma! What makes you think the only music he would produce would be hard rock?

come on, telling kris to sing "no boundaries", the same song adam lambert sings would be like giving adam a guitar and telling him to go out there and play and sing "heartless" just like kris did. adam got boring after awhile with the same type of song over and over. every week kris brought something new. he was a better artist. he could sing straight up or play piano or guitar. i can name one song adam did the whole season that was "Mad World". With Kris i can still remember "She Works Hard for the Money", "Falling Slowly", "Apologize", "Heartless", "Aint no Sunshine". And just because Kris cant sing like Adam doesnt mean he doesnt have the same amount of talent. hes a true artist. Jamie Foxx said it himself.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
