I didn't just yearn for a rematch because of who I wanted to see win this season. (I'm trying to be impartial here so as not to sway the voting below, but my regular readers are well aware of who I was rooting for; there's no need for me to mention it for the millionth time.) I also was excited about the prospect of a rematch finale special airing on Fox, since I'm still going through post-Idol withdrawals one whole week after the results.
"Fox and the producers of American Idol are absolutely certain that the results of this competition are fair, accurate, and verified. Kris Allen is, without a doubt, the American Idol. We have an independent third-party monitoring procedure in place to ensure the integrity of the voting process. In no way did any individuals unfairly influence the outcome of the competition."
Oh well. That won't stop me from posting my own unofficial rematch, will it? So watch the two finale performances below (of Adam Lambert and Kris Allen's Simon Fuller song picks) and cast your vote on the message board below.
Is Kris the real American Idol, or was Adam robbed? You be the judge.
- Kris Allen
