    Yay for Kris! He was able to pull the upset! His face when they announced him as the winner was priceless! He is so gracious and humble. I can't wait for his CD!

    I loved the look of shock on his face when they said Kris won. It was totally genuine and I really believe he thought Adam should have been the winner since he was a better singer. But better singers don't necessarily always win, particularly rockers. Congrats to Kris. One of the girls in my office who has two girls in college said they saw Kris last night on the show for the first time and went gaga over him. I guess he has that appeal! Again, congrats to Kris who will have a good career!

    Right on the money Razorbacker! It's funny to go back to the start of the posts (this was posted March 10th) and see what people were saying.

    In your opinion Adam is the better singer. I personally don't think so. He is the same old trick with that dam* screech. I will give Adam props for having a better stage presence. But just look at Carrie Underwood....she had ZERO stage presence during AI and look at her now.

    Kris was shocked b/c he was beaten down week after week by the judges when they said he would never win this thing PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Kris is a true artist and proved over the course of the season that he deserved this just as much as anyone else

    People have said Heartless was the greatest clutch performance in AI history. I respectfully disagree. I think by that time, Kris was pretty established and the whole notion that he needed to pull a rabbit out of the hat at that point, is really debatable.

    I would go back and nominate Man in the Mirror as absolutely THE most clutch performance in AI history. After all, Kris was fully expected to be cannon fodder and was a total surprise that this guy who'd been given no air time snuck through over some of the contestants they were promoting.

    Just listened to MITM again on YouTube, it is so great, and I have always been more of a hard rock guy too.

    Re: Kris Allen - Season 8

    This is from Kris' interview with MTV's Jim Cantiello:

    Kris Allen Reassures Adam Lambert Fans - News Story | Music, Celebrity, Artist News | MTV News

    Cantiello: Last question: There's some heartbroken Adam Lambert fans on the Internet. What do you say to them right now to cushion the blow a little bit?

    Allen: OK, here's the deal: Adam is gonna be fine. He's gonna be a megastar. He's probably gonna be bigger than me, so don't worry about him. He's great. I'm really happy for him.
    I respect you so much, Kris Allen, you don't even know. I'm going to be a fan of yours for a long while.

    I can't wait to hear his album.

It was a close race, but I am not surprised Kris won. Maybe the judges obvious favoritism toward Adam may have put voters off also (just a thought).
    Ditto on everything you said.

    I am so happy that Kris won I can't wait to see him on the tour and buy his cd when it comes out. The first time my favorite won this show and it is fun to have a happy feeling that doesn't want to go away
