And the "Idol" winner is (interminable Ryan Seacrest pause here) ... Kris Allen.
The charmingly humble and cute 23-year-old from Conway, Ark., walked off with the Season 8 crown Wed night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The surprising results were announced at 10:04pm Eastern time.
Are you disappointed?
Clearly, Adam Lambert is a better singer though Kris gave a few good performances and improved each week. Do you think Adam Lambert lost because of his sexual orientation?
Below are a few of my favourite numbers/performances..
Kris Allen singing Apologize and Heartless
Adam Lambert - Mad World. I prefer the live version but no longer available on YouTube
Allen's win must have been a disappointment to Simon Cowell as he (Simon) was clearly rooting for Lambert and have even urged viewers to vote for rocker Lambert, a blatant and unprecedented display of favoritism.
