Kris Allen Surprised When He Won Against Lambert

May 21, 2009

Los Angeles, CA -(RPRN) 5/21/2009 - Kris Allen said it all when he muttered 'Adam deserves it' in disbelief after being named the new American Idol over hot favourite Adam Lambert Wednesday night.

Kris Allen upsets Adam Lambert to win "American Idol," with nearly 100 million votes cast -- wow, I think America got it wrong, Adam was clearly superior over the course of the season, and Kris even says, "Adam deserves this!" to Ryan as his first words.

Kris is clearly, truly stunned; I'm not really stunned, but the wrong person won in my opinion, which is the first time I think you can say that about "American Idol" (pipe down, Clay Aiken fans).

Well . . . everyone's going to be talking about the possible role homophobia played; and it does seem likely Danny Gokey's voters turned out in big numbers to push Kris over the top.

But let's not take too much away from Kris -- he had a heck of a run on "American Idol," coming from pretty much nowhere to really build a following. He wasn't the most creative, but he was probably consistently the most likeable, and that counts for a lot on this show.

I feel badly for Adam, but he's probably happy for Kris, so let's all congratulate Kris Allen on a huge victory and being the 2009 "American Idol" champion.
