Kris Allen is the new American Idol winner 2009.


Kris Allen is the new American Idol winner 2009.

Just under 100 million votes — a new world record according to “Idol” — were cast on Tuesday night, but in the end, it was 23-year-old Kris Allen, from Conway, Arkansas who walked home with the title of the Season 8 “American Idol.”

Kris Allen bloomed during the season, gaining more assurance onstage and winning viewers over with his heartfelt vocals, modest demeanor and well-scrubbed good looks.

Kris Allen beamed with disbelief, shook his head as if to reject that this was really happening and struggled to find words.

The fact that he’d just beaten rollicking vocal powerhouse Adam Lambert for the “American Idol” title wasn’t going to sink in quickly for the unassuming underdog from Arkansas. The only downside to this stunning victory: He’d have to sing “No Boundaries” one more time.

Adam Lambert deserves this. I’m sorry, I don’t even know what to feel right now. This is crazy,” said Kris Allen, the 23-year-old from Conway, Ark.

Kris Allen‘s smooth vocals and boy-next-door image propelled him to “American Idol” victory Wednesday, gave him the edge after nearly 100 million viewer votes were cast, turning the theatrical powerhouse Adam Lambert into the most unlikely of also-rans. When the season started,Kris Allen seemed unsure he had a right to take center stage, let alone stand there and snatch victory from such a formidable rival.

During his “Idol” audition last summer, Kris Allen, hands in his pockets and a newsboy cap pulled down around his eyes, was asked by the judges if he was the best singer around.

On May 20, 2009, Kris Allen was declared the American Idol Winner 2009, season 8, becoming the first married contestant to claim the title. During the finale, Kris Allen performed with country artist Keith Urban on Urban’s single, “Kiss a Girl”. Kris Allen also performed “We Are the Champions” by Queen as a duet with runner-up Adam Lambert.

So, the American Idol Winner 2009 is ……..Kris Allen !!!!
