This year's American Idol was in for a big surprise with Kris Allen getting more votes than Adam Lambert, who was the favourite. Even Kris Allen said after winning the title that Adam deserved it. Another surprise of the show was that Simon Cowell didn't give standing ovation to the winner.
However, the 23-year-old Kris Allen won the hearts of the people with his good American looks.
American Idol host Ryan Seacrest spelled a big surprise on Wednesday night. He announced that the underdog contestant Kris Allen was the winner of the eighth season of American Idol.
