American Idol Winner 2009

Oh how I have enjoyed watching Kris Allen become the winner. I wasn't always a huge fan. But I liked him more and more every week.

In our house we are all about American Idol. We love singing, and performing. Well some of us do. Christopher, and Noah don't really watch American Idol they would rather play video games, or watch a movie for the millionth time.

But Chris, Kelsea, Lynsey, Bethany, and Me that's another story. We tune in each week from the very first show to the very last show. I thought the finale was so great this year. I love all the corny, cheesey stuff they do. Hee hee

I thought Adam was going to win, but I was secretly holding on to the hope that America would vote for Kris. Let me tell you why.

From the moment we saw Adam he was fantastic. I loved every choice and every song he did. My favorite was 'Ring of Fire' by Johnny Cash. It was great, and different. He is going to have an AWESOME singing career. When he did 'Tracks of My Tears' I was blown away. He looked really hot. Like a young Elvis. yeah baby.

Kris wasn't someone I liked everytime. I watched him grow and that I can get behind. I loved when he did 'She Works Hard For the Money' and 'Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone'.

When it came down to the voting for the final 3 you had Allison a rocker chic, Danny a ballady easy going singer, Adam a rocker guy, and Kris a ballady easy going singer.

When Allison left most of her votes went to Adam. Some where still split up between Danny and Kris. Because those teens are a fickle bunch.
When Danny left all his core fans went to Kris. With this in mind and the fact that Kris was the underdog (which america loves the underdog), and alot of Adam fans thought he had it in the bag. TA DAH the winner is Kris Allen.

It doesn't really matter anymore who wins American Idol. There are going to be serveral huge artists come from this great group of kids....

My cousin Jennifer lives in Conway, Arkansas. Her husband went to college with Kris. They got to go to the Home Town Concert that was on TV. She said that more than 20 thousand people attended. She he blew them away! He was so good! You are right, America loves the underdog and I'm so glad he won. Adam was born a STAR. Others have to work a little harder to make it.
