The finale of this year’s American Idol was an incredible star-studded affair. Earlier in the programme, viewers were entertained by pOp and rock royalty, with performances from Cyndi Lauper, Kiss and Lionel Richie.
But on the competition side of things, it all came down to the highly fancied rocker Adam Lambert and golden country boy Kris Allen. And with more than 100 million votes cast for the finale (reportedly a new world record), it was 23 year old Arkansas native Kris Allen who emerged the victor. Asked how he felt on winning this year’s competition, Kris said, “It feels good, but Adam deserves this”.
Allen has already released his Cathy Dennis co-penned single ‘No Boundaries’ (below) digitally in the United States.
