By KJ Mullins     May 20, 2009 in Entertainment
Kris Allen has taken the crown on American Idol. Allen, considered the dark-horse contestant, won after almost 100 million votes were cast Tuesday night.
Allen was speechless when the announcement was made by Ryan Seacrest during the last minutes of the season finale.
E! Online
quotes the new Idol:
"It feels good, man, but Adam deserves this," the Conway, Ark., native protested. "I don't know what to feel right now, this is crazy."
The announcement came after a two-hour music filled night featuring Rod Stewart, Fergie, Cyndi Lauper, Carlos Santana, Kiss, Lionel Ritchie, Black Eyed Peas and ending with Queen playing "We Are The Champions" sang by Lambert and Allen.
Before the announcement Simon Cowell said:
“To both of you, and I don’t normally mean this, I thought you were both brilliant. .... The future’s all yours,” the judge said.
Allen, 23, a student from Conway, Arkansas will now have the treasured year-long recording contract.
