The new reigning American Idol, Kris Allen, was as shocked as the rest of America last night when he beat out Adam Lambertfor the title. However, the thing that Kris is looking most forward to is resuming normal life with his new wife, Katy. Keep reading for the full interview…

As reported by E!News, Kris turned to his wife after the big win and said, “Ah, we can be married.” He explained to reporters backstage after the finale: “We haven’t been able to be married for the last nine months. She’s amazing. She’s just the coolest chick in the world. Hopefully, me and my wife will get to spend some more time together.”

They also asked Kris about his comment on stage that Adam should have won. He said, “I actually feel that. He deserves this just as much as I do. He’s an amazing performer and a gifted guy. And a really amazing guy. It was fun doing this with him. Adam does his thing and I’m going to do mine. That’s what I did throughout this whole competition and I think it worked. Obviously, it worked.”

On Hearing His Name Called: “I was shocked. I felt shocked almost every week that I made it. And to be the American Idol, I’m completely shocked.”

Thirty-Eight of the 100 Million Votes Came From Arkansas: “If that’s true, I really, really appreciate that. I know that Arkansas was really behind me. Arkansas is a great state. And there’s not a whole lot happens in Arkansas, so I think they were rallying behind me.”

Highlight of the Night: “Tonight was the coolest because, seriously, I got to sing with Queen. Wow. That was amazing.”

The Keith Urban Duet: “The country route, I don’t know that I’m going to go that way. But it was really, really fun performing with him. He’s great. It was a lot of fun.”

His Musical Direction: “I think it’s pretty obvious that I’ve done a lot of the pop singer-songwriter/pop rock kind of thing and that’s what I want to do.”

Best Part of the Contest: “The best thing throughout the whole competition, and I know it sounds cheesy, but we made some really good friends. I love those guys. I really do.”

Winning the Ford Fusion: “I think my wife is more excited about it than I am. [But] I try to be very eco-friendly.”
