karenWaaah! Forgive me, my dears for being too excited! I’m sure you can’t get over the biggest twist that has ever come up from our favorite weekly habit, American Idol Season 8! Right now I am still trying to recover from my shock, although it’s a good one, I must say, Don’t you agree?

 

            I still can’t believe Kris actually won! YIPEE! It was so unexpected, but that’s the way it is with the best surprises right? As I remember how he actually started his Idol journey with his rather forgettable audition, I can’t believe how this charming crooner with great guitar skills whose talent actually shone through as weeks went by in this season. He’s actually a great example of a dark horse, and I must say, he’s a lucky one (and a cute one too)!

 

           kris allen wins Kris and Adam have very different performing styles. While Adam is really more of the showstopper—he was almost always in the limelight throughout the season—Kris is more of the simple guy, unassuming, but at the same time showcasing his talent the best way he knew how, and he always manages to nail all the numbers that he performs. I even liked his version of “Heartless” by Kanye West, which was actually his worst, according to the judges. So I must say, he’s definitely not bad at all!

 

            Kris and Adam’s duet for the finals, “We Are the Champions”, was definitely the song for the both of them. Even Simon said, “To both of you, and I don’t normally mean this, I thought you were both brilliant…the future’s all yours.” That was just so touching—I’m sure it meant a lot to the both of them.

 

            And then they did the duets with other artists. Kris did a heartfelt number with Keith Urban, one singer who is actually resembles his vocal style, while Adam as usual was just a delight onstage with his pyrotechnic number with Kiss, the rock legends. That basically showed just how different the two of them were.

 

            I also think they were friends, and competition wasn’t really that tough between the both of them, maybe it’s because they didn’t really have the same style, so they had a musical camaraderie of some sort, and that I think is truly important to a competition, to learn all that you can from your fellow contestants, because sometimes it’s really not just about the winning, but how you get there and grow along the way, right?

Adam is definitely also a winner in his own right, he made it seem so easy and fun, and he’s a true star. He’s actually the highlight of Season 8! That’s why even I was shocked that he didn’t win this competition but he doesn’t really need to feel bad, because there’s such a bright future ahead of him. I’m sure next year he will also have his own chart-topping album just like Kris!

 

            I am so happy right now, but also at the same time sad, because my favorite show (and yours too) just wrapped up another great season—with such a twist! Of course I’ll miss my weekly habit, but definitely I’m going to be listening to these Idols conquer the airwaves soon, really soon, and I also plan to share my own hits as well, so watch out for it! I definitely had fun updating you week after week, and I hope you had fun too as well—hope to catch you guys again soon, and always keep smiling, it will take you places!
