Watching this season's finale was really a treat. Music greats performed lived on stage .... I think this is the most jam packed finale the American Idol ever had. The highlight for me was the duet of Keith Urban and Kris Allen.... hotness!!! Also worth mentioning is that Boom Boom Pow performance from Black Eyed Peas, Santana's performance with the Idols, and of course that of Queen's.

And because I always root for the underdogs, I was ecstatic upon hearing Ryan announced Kris Allen won. He is the perfect paradigm of a "Dark Horse". Imagine from obscurity with no fanfare at all, he emerged as a contender. He was downplayed heavily by the judges and producers even up to the finale. But despite all odds, he was still there, winning the admiration of a lot of people. It's a realization that success in the music industry does not purely rely on how high the note you can reach but it is a combination of charisma and musical talent and ingenuity. Kris Allen definitely has all three qualities and his humility played a big factor. The song "No Boundaries" suited him best....

Listen to 'No Boundaries'

No Boundaries by Kara DioGuardi (”Kara’s Song”)

Seconds hours so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait
Every moment last forever if you feel you’ve lost your way
What if my chances are already gone
Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
to fight and never walk away

Coz here I am — still holding on!

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain (or through all your aches and pains)
Weather the hurricane
To get to that one thing

When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand and show you that you can

There are no boundaries, there are no boundaries.....

I fought to the end and stand on the edge, what if the day is as good as it gets

Don't know where the future is heading, nothing's gonna bring me down

I've jumped every bridge and I've heard every line

I've risked being safe and I always knew why

I always knew why, so here I am still holding on.

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries
Above and beneath you
B-reak every rule coz there’s nothing between you
and your dreams

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

  6. I still think Adam Lambert should be the winner and the winner should not be the underdog but the one who deserves it.

  7. hi bingkee thanks for droppin by :) both of them are deserving of the title each one having their own niche that makes them unique, it all boils down to our music preferences. .... the one who won the battle is the one who deserves the title, and the real winner here is the voting public who just made a big statement by voting for Kris, the underdog who is as talented as Adam but was not given the same kind of credit he deserves from the judges and producers.
