“First and foremost I would like to thank Federer. For coming here and for losing in the first round.”—Mikhail Youzhny joking during his winning speech after winning Gstaad 2013 title in Switzerland. LOL
Four years after Kris Allen won American Idol, his popularity still holds strong!
After four rounds of voting, the Season 8 winner was crowned the Idol of all time by his dedicated fanbase, who helped him beat out Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and even the most recent winner, Candice Glover.
The final round this week was Kris, David Cook, and Scotty McCreery … and Kris edged them out by a landslide with nearly 60% of the vote, which translated to just over 59,000 votes.
As a thank-you to his fans, Kris is hard at work right now making a special video message, which will debut on RyanSeacrest.com on Monday, June 17. We’ll keep fans updated on the exact time, so stay tuned!
