Back in January, no one knew who Kris Allen was. Over the many weeks of the competition we began seeing more and more of him and now he is the new American Idol.

Nearly 100 million American Idol votes came in from across the country last night. Hundreds turned out to watch Idol finale and the town seemed to erupt in cheers when Ryan Seacrest announced that Kris is the winner.

Kris didn't intend to become the American Idol. Originally, his brother Daniel wanted to audition and he talked Kris into coming with him. The rest is history.

  • CORRECTION
Based on incorrect information provided to one of our reporters, FOX16 News reported Wednesday night, an extraordinary number of votes came in from Arkansas to American Idol.

AT&T spokesman Ted Wagnon told us today, "AT&T does not divulge or confirm how many votes were cast in any state."

We apologize for the error.
