Idol Showdown!

I am so jazzed Kris Allen is the next American Idol! Can NOT believe it…the humble kid from Arkansas beat the rocker! Even though the entire evening was geared to make Adam Lambert the winner. Adam’s duet with Kiss was over the top with fireworks and special effects….like a coronation!

Kris’ duet with Keith Urban was understated and low-key.

It’s nice to see the unassuming underdog. Not that Adam isn’t a talented guy…but he’s going to do just fine.

In the last few seconds, his wife was lifted up on stage with him. Did you see Kris start to cry when he hugged his wife? OH MY GOSH…what a moment.

Sigh…now we have to wait another 7 months for American Idol to start again.

    The excitement over Kris’ win is contagious. He did what no one thought he could do. Did you notice, Simon is the only judge who didn’t stand to honor him? The liberal media along with Barbara Walters are “blaming” the Christians for tipping the vote into a virtual landslide. Go ahead, blame me all you want! For once, we win!
