Conway In The House - Kris Allen Won!

Adam Lambert, Ryan Seacrest, and Kris AllenI'm so happy for him!

Congrats Kris!

Just under a hundred million votes were cast for both Adam and Kris last night.

Tonight's show was definitely a star-studded event.

My favorite moments:

Rod Stewart sang "Maggie May".

Queen played while Adam and Kris crooned "We Are The Champions".

Adam Lambert with KISSAdam Lambert sang "Detroit Rock City" and "I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night" with KISS.

Carlos Santana played "Black Magic Woman" and "Smooth" while the Top 13 American Idol contestants sang.

Steve Martin played the banjo to his song, "Pretty Flowers".

Kris Allen and Keith UrbanKeith Urban and Kris Allen sang a duet of "Kiss A Girl" (my favorite pairing of the night).

Black Eyed Peas (with Fergie) performed "Boom Boom Pow!"

David Cook sang "Permanent". I'm a big David Cook fan. If you buy the song through iTunes, all proceeds will go to cancer research in honor of his recently deceased brother, Adam.

Kara DioGuardi and Katrina DarrellOne of the 'fun' moments of Idol tonight was when bikini-babe, Katrina Darrell, appeared on stage (in her bikini, of course) sporting a new boob-job, and accepted her award for "Bad Attitude". She then proceeded to sing. But she didn't expect what happened next. Kara DioGuardi came up from behind her singing on top of her and then when the song was done, Kara ripped her dress open to reveal a bikini underneath! You have to know the back-story to understand why this was so funny.

Steve Martin playing his banjoMy favorite quote of the evening was when Ryan Seacrest asked Steve Martin who he thought would win. Martin replied, "I know it's a long shot, but I'm hoping I do."

Thanks for reading!

My favorite part of the night was when Rod Stewart sang "Maggie May". He looked so natural with his performance. I'd like to get that live version of the song on Dylan's iPod.

A close second was when Keith Urban and Kris Allen duet of "Kiss A Girl." Maybe you can get that on iTunes as well.

I'm so glad that Kris Allen, just a regular guy, won. It's nice to see that you can be humble and still win.

Honey, let's go celebrate! Wooohoo!


Eat Well. Live Well.

I really did think this was a fabulous season finale! I still can't believe they got all of those huge 80's stars in one venue, all on the same night!
I also have to admit, we voted for Kris Allen and I was so happy, and surprised, when he won! I think Adam Lambert, while he may not have won last night, will have no problem getting a record deal.

It was a great show. It was like going to a concert. I'm dissapointed though! I really wanted Adam to win. :(

Sandee said...

I'm happy for Kris. I'm sure that both of them will do very well. Thanks for you and Paul keeping me up on Kris' performances.

Have a terrific day. :)

I LOVED when Kara showed up Bikini Girl. HILARIOUS! The show was awesome. Kris singing with Keith Urban was great, and Adam with Kiss was just awesome! I was in Conway earlier in the week visiting family and the town was just nuts for Kris! They were selling t-shirts everywhere, and my cousin graduated from HS at UCA the night everyone was at the football field watching the performances. It was so much fun to be in the middle of the crowd. Plus, I got me some Stoby's cheese! :)

Loved this show! Very entertaining. Poor bikini girl.... :(

I'm originally from Conway and so proud that Chris represented so well!

Laura said...

Paul - I thought the show was great. I loved seeing so many cool performances!

Lynne - I agree with you... Adam will have a fabulous career and I know he's thrilled he doesn't have to sing 'No Boundaries'! :) I thought the show was great too.

Sue - Sorry your guy didn't win but Adam is going to be better than great. He's an awesome singer and performer!

Sandee - I'm glad Kris won too. :)

Sadie - How funny! You were just 3 blocks from my house! I know, it was so cool with all the excitement around town.

Mrs.4444 - It was a fun show. I loved Bikini Girl getting showed up by Kara. Hehehehe!

Me-Me King - You're right... Kris represented Conway very well! :) said...

It was a great season - probably the best season out of all of them. I was very happy that Kris emerged as the winner. I liked Adam's singing, but it bordered on bizarre from time to time. Kris is very mainstream and will sell lots of records.

Laura said... - I agree with you. I liked Adam a whole lot (though like you said - definitely bizarre from time to time)and from the first song I heard him sing I knew he would make it to the final and probably win the whole thing. Though I am thrilled Kris won. I'm one of the crazies that called in votes for Kris for 4 hrs!
