He Did It!
Wow! What a star-studded American Idol night! 2 hours of musical performance after musical performance of famous musicians (e.g., Keith Urban, Fergie/Black-eyed peas, Jason Moraz, Cindy Lauper, Steve Martin) dueting/combining with terrific american idol performers from this current season. I was, of course, nervous much of the night but not as much as last year when I REALLY wanted David Archuleta to win. Would it be another rocker winning--Adam--or would it be a pop/acoustic star like Kris? Nearly 100 million votes and although they didn't mention the vote spread, I believe it was my 30-plus votes that put the come-from-behind, dark horse, Kris Allen as the . . . . . .WINNER! Congratulations Kris! Your response to the announcement was a little bit of a let-down, but I understand that you were a little "shell-shocked" and probably still haven't absorbed the greatness of the accomplishment and accompanying title. Can't wait to see what creative artistry you will come up with on your album.
