Kris Allen is the New American Idol

And the winner is... Kris Allen!

Folksy singer Kris Allen is the new "American Idol," turning judges' favorite Adam Lambert into an also-ran.

Host Ryan Seacrest said on Wednesday's finale that nearly 100 million votes were cast for the finalists. The 23-year-old Allen, a student from Conway, Arkansas, bested the 27-year-old Lambert, a theater actor from San Diego.

The two-hour finale included performances by the Black Eyed Peas, Cyndi Lauper, Carlos Santana and Rod Stewart. Lambert performed with Kiss and Allen dueted with Keith Urban.

Allen gets a record contract along with his "American Idol" title.

Many viewers believe that Adam's punky-rock style and the nasty humors about him (pics of him being gay and kissing other men) may have alienated voters in conservative states, including in the south. Kris Allen hails from Arkansas.

Do you believe that Kris Allen deserves it? Why or why not? ^_-

Listen to Kris Allen's version of No Boundaries (Studio Version).



Seconds hours so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait
Every moment last forever if you feel you’ve lost your way
What if your chances are already gone
Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
to fight and never walk away

Coz hear I am — still holding on!

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain (or through all your aches and pains)
Weather the hurricane
To get to that one thing

When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand and show you that you can

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries
Above and beneath you
B-reak every rule coz there’s nothing between you
and your dreams

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

Lastly, I just wanna let you know that I am loving this video and the song as well.


  1. pers!


    pers of all, naiskandalo ako sa profile pic mo, mon! nyahaha!

    sekan of all, ok sa kin si kris, pero i think adam deserved it more. :D

  2. Wooh! Kris ako! Ahaha.

    Pag kumakanta si Adam, si Regine Velasquez ang naaalala ko. Bumibirit. XD

  3. sabi ko na nga ba si Kris ang mananalo. He got the nation's sympathy with the last performance.

  4. @ Deejay
    - wow ang dakilang si Deejay first commenter ngayon! ay em sow onord. hehe. bakit? indi naman nakaka-eskandalo ang profile pic ko ah. :)
    Kris deserves it! hehe

    @ Neex
    - Haha. Regine talaga? LOL. apirr!

    @ Lucas
    - Tama parekoy! and I love his version of Kiss a Girl! Pa-praktisin ko yun. hehe

  5. nakakasawa kasi style ni adam. si kris naman, la lang. parang safe palagi.

    actually, ngayong season lang ako hindi nanood. so para sakin, kahit sino manalo, hindi rin sisikat masyado.

    parang walang dating masyado yung AI ngayon. do u agree?

  6. alam mo hindi ko namalayan na dalawa na lang sila. kung hindi ako pinutakti ng pinsan ko sa mga tanong niya kung sino nanalo sa AI di ko alam na dalawa na lang ang contestant na natitira.

    mula kahapon feeling ko 13 pa silang naglalaban laban!

    13?! parang lagpas lagpasan naman ata ako.

  7. bakit ganun di ako maka relate hehe di xe nanood ng ai hehe..
    uy ka ha tatampo ko di ka nadaan sa kuta ko hehe..:)
    saka tataka ko batet di ka na online hehe..
    nabawasan ang kakulitan ko hehe..:)

  8. after gokey was booted out, may gut feel ako na si kris talaga ang mananalo in this year's AI. gokey's voters slash followers would think twice on voting for adam.

  9. kris is good! the underdog!

  10. di ako updated sa mga panoorin na ganyan dahil sa dami ng iniisip pero salamat sa update ha

  11. parekoy, your bet has won. hehe. i like kris' performance of "kiss a girl" with keith urban.

    i like adam more. he's so cool. and i like adam's version of "no boundaries" than kris' version.

    but i wasn't surprised when kris was declared the winner 'coz amerians love underdogs. and obviously, kris is the underdog this season. PEACE!

  12. wheeeeeeeeee
    ang galing ni krisssss ^___^
    heheh ganda ng kanta nyaaa whooohooooo
    galing tlga ni baby kris!!! lols

  13. congratulations to the both. although i didnt watch AI this season, except for the finale, i can say that kris got the title but i predict that adam will have more fans but kris will definitely be famous.

  14. i'm starting to dislike blogger. my comment-reply to ur comments were not published. :(

    by the way, here it goes again:

    @ pogingpayatot:
    - i beg to differ bro, hehe. AI has still been a good watch. hehe

    @ Ax - di ka rin kasi nanood. hehe

    wait i'm getting tired oridi. hehe. i'll finish the replies tomorrow! hehe

  15. To be honest, among the 13 I was rooting for Danny Gokey and Allison. But that's all water under the AI bridge na.

    Between Adam and Kris? I went for Adam. Sablay na naman ako. Yuck. We as a people don't know how to pick our president. It's good to know that the American people just don't know what talent is. Their concept of Idol is weird. lols. No offense to Kris Allen fans.

    I like him too, Kris. Kaya nga lang, Adam can sing Kris under the table if you liken it to sa inuman. Iyon lang. I'm sorry, just my opinion lang po. ",)

  16. congrats to Kris; he stuck it out, got the votes he needed when he needed them and ended up winning the whole thing; he's like a politician, only more sincere

  17. congratz to KRIS. ang galing nya.

  18. well, i'm rooting for Kris. but i think Adam deserved the win more. I'm torn kasi naman yung mga manok ko hindi pumasok sa finale..hehehe!

    ang ganda nga ng duet nila ni Keith Urban yung Kiss A Girl...

    peace out!

    nako hindi! huwag naman sana...Hahaha! peace out!

  23. Paborito ko si Adam pero mas gusto ko manalo si Kris, Why? simply because magaling si Adam as in super so di nya kailangan manalo para sumikat....itaga mo yan sa bato ha ha ha ha......
