Kris Allen Wins

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on May 21, 2009

The Clean-cut country boy Kris Allen kicks off Adam Lambert on the stage by winning their competition.

It might be the most surprising upset in the show’s history since the judges – including tough guy Simon Cowell who often favored Lambert’s style of music.

Even though the showy Lambert appeared to be the favorite, it was never foreseen he would win the final vote, which host Ryan Seacrest revealed to be “just under 100 million” – beating last year’s tally of 97.5 million.

The expulsion of Danny Gokey two weeks ago may have given Allen, 23, a boost since both are more conventional and down-to-earth than Lambert, 27.And simple geography may have been on Allen’s side.

Certain personal background has helped Kris put some number of votes for him.Five past Idol winners have been from southern states, and he hails from Conway, Ark., about as deep in the South as you can get.
