12th Man of 2009:
Well, this one shouldn't come as a huge shock. I love American Idol (bring on the boos naysayers) but this season was more of a slow burner. There were some great performances, and great performers (yeah I'll give it up to Adam Lambert), but when push came to shove it was the down-home acoustic boy Kris Allen that took the crown. It didn't hurt that he was so friggin' easy on the eyes too!
