American Idol delivered a shocker Wednesday as voters chose Kris Allen for the title over Adam Lambert, who had been considered a prohibitive favorite for much of the show's eighth season.
Going into the finale, much of the media and many fans dwelled on their obvious differences. But ultimately, their similarities carried them to the finale. Both took musical cues from last year's winner, David Cook, frequently taking great liberties with their chosen material. That approach made them the season's most interesting contestants.
The question is "Who's gonna snatch the crown this time?".
