5/22/05 – Carrie wins according to the London Independent:
…and Simon Fuller, the pop impressario whose American Idol TV competition was won this year by Carrie Underwood
For those of you not paying attention, the finals and voting happened 2 days later and the *results* were released last night. A predetermined outcome? I *can’t* believe it, not after the 30 minute feature on her during the audition stage.
