Allen also became the first winner to accept a trophy shaped like a microphone.Nearly 100 million votes were cast during the finale, setting a new world record for a televised singing competition.After being voted into the Top 3, Allen returned to Arkansas, filming the hometown material needed for the next two American Idol episodes.
Cowell agreed and said, "I had written you out of the competition but that has changed after that performance." This performance helped Kris move on to the finals and win.
Unlike the previous season, the winning margin was undisclosed.
Numerous sources, including the Associated Press, claimed that the margin "wasn't even close".
Fox and AT&T have stated that they "stand by the outcome" and are "absolutely certain" that "Kris Allen is the American Idol".
After winning Idol, Allen made his Billboard Hot 100 debut with five songs charting within the top 100.
He played his first gig at a local bar in downtown Conway during his sophomore year, and he went on to drop out of college in the middle of his junior year to follow his dream of becoming a professional musician.
