Kris Allen wins American Idol 2009

The last two contestants, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on FOX's American Idol went head to head in the May 19, 2009 finale show on Tuesday. The results were revealed on the May 20th show, which aired at 8pm.

Adam Lambert seems to be the favourite to win, but Kris Allen is the underdog of the show and many fans want him to win. They will each sing three songs before America gets to decide who will be the next American Idol.Simon Cowell has refered to this show as a 'ding-dong', meaning it might not be as exciting as some viewers hope it will be tonight.

The show is being held at the Nokia Theatre in Hollywood, and fans started lining up this morning to get in to see the show. Kris Allen, a 23-year-old guitar-strumming folk crooner from Conway, Arkansas, was crowned American Idol 2009 on Wednesday night’s eighth Idol Finale on FOX.

Kris managed to edge out judge favorite Adam Lambert — and eleven other finalists — for this season’s win. Tonight’s two-hour finale included performances by the Black Eyed Peas, Cyndi Lauper, Carlos Santana, and Rod Stewart. Adam performed with KISS while Kris — a student — dueted with country star Keith Urban. Before the announcement, the two finalists performed “We Are The Champions” with legendary rock band Queen.

According to American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, more than 100 million votes were cast after Tuesday’s singing showdown between Allen and the San Diego-born Lambert. A record-setting 624 million votes were cast over the course of the season.
