Top 2: Stunning!

** SPOILER ALERT: Wednesday night’s blog reveals the winner of the show. Do not visit this entry of the blog if you do not want to know the result. **

The confetti has flown, and I am floored.

Kris Allen just pulled the biggest upset I have ever seen!

Can you believe it? I loved the ending with him in the emotional clinch with his wife. I am still trying to wrap my brain around it.

It has been a blast blogging this show, and I can't wait to hear what you think. Post your comments below or head over to iReport to share video of your reaction.

Kris and Adam will be appearing on CNN's "Larry King Live" on Friday, and you can submit your questions for them via Facebook.

What a season, huh? So what should we blog next, guys? We want to hear your suggestions!

Top 2: They are the champions!!!

Now this is a show!!!

Adam and Kris singing "We Are the Champions" with Brian May from Queen playing is classic!

I need Queen to sign Adam on as their lead singer ASAP.

And it ain't "American Idol" without a choir, so I was not at all surprised to see one appear on the stage. I am beside myself!

Top 2: Rod Stewart is still sexy

Lord, they are really trotting them all out tonight, aren't they?

As soon as I heard the guys singing "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy," I knew Rod Stewart was somewhere close. His "Maggie" has everyone grooving, and we flash to Carrie Underwood and Bo Bice feeling it. Nicole Richie is even there. And was that her baby daddy with his hair dyed blond?

They have really pulled out all the stops tonight.

The last "Golden Idol" thingie is being awarded, and I could not care less - except that I had almost forgotten about Tatiana! She can sing, and despite there being a whole lot of crazy stuffed into one little girl, I wouldn't have minded seeing her make the final 13.

Top 2: No joke - Steve Martin is in the house

Steve Martin and his banjo. Megan Joy and Michael Sarver singing. What more can I say?

No, seriously. I kid because I love. Steve's song "Pretty Flowers" is a lovely banjo piece, and I think  I am going to just leave it at that.

I will say his surprise appearance is one of the things I love about this show. You just never know who's going to pop up.
