America Crowned It's New Idol for Season 8

Allen VS Lambert. That was a tough decision. The fight against less than 100 million fans between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen is finally over. Only a few text votes separated the Idol winner and the runner up. 
Wednesday, May 23, Seacrest opened the show welcoming back Adam and Kris on the stage. After that, the top 13 hit the stage with the song "So What" by Pink. Next, a thrilling performance by David Cook (Season 7 winner) with the song "Permanent," a song dedicated to his brother who recently died from cancer. The performance would be soon available for download on iTunes, and the profit will benefit to cancer research.
Then came the "Golden Awards" portion and as we all know, the award is annually given to auditioners who humiliated themselves on the show. Nick Mitchell won. He sang "And I'm Telling You" and the whole crowd was really amazed. After that, a duet from Lil Rounds and Queen Latifa for the song "Through the Rain" was performed. Then Jason Mraz sang "I'm Yours" with Anoop Desai and Alexis Grace, then some finalists join then at the end.
The Golden Awards was back for the female category, and Katrina Darell won the title.  Allison Iraheta performed "Time After Time" together with the original singer of the song, Cindy Lauper. Then, Danny Gokey sang "Hello" and Lionel Richie joined him for the song "Just Go" and "All Night Long."
Ryan introduced Santana for next performer and Matt Giraud joined him for the song "Black Magic Woman." Then all finalist came for a smooth dancing sensation. 
Finally! The top 2 finalists! Lambert versus Allen. Who's gonna win? First, they did a duet for the song "We Are the Champs" by Queen. Before the announcement, Ryan asked Simon Cowell what he wants to say to the two finalists. "I think they are both brilliant and they should be proud of themselves," Cowell said.
"And the winner of American Idol Season 8 is Kris Allen!" Kris said "It feels good but Adam deserved it." Kris was thunderstrucked. He was speechless  He said "I'm sorry." Then cried on his wife's shoulder.
Then the show ended. Season 8 was over! I was also amazed, because I expected Lambert to win, although I said to myself he should not. In my opinion, he's not the winner type. But I'm not saying Allen's a winner type! Actually my bet is Gokey (*lol)! But that's all right. America loves the one who is left behind. That's why Kris Allen won the text votes versus Adam Lambert. Well then, that's it! Hope to watch more more seasons of AI for the next years!
