It was no surprise. Paul worked his butt off from day one and each week he appeared more determined than ever to be the winner and he deserves it. I however felt that the Chris Mann ought to have been second but America spoke and that is to be respected. I felt it was a toss-up between Paul and Mann . Truth be told, all four of the finalists were winners in their own right. They were too different to be judged against each other but Paul topped it all not only with his singing abilities but with his performance and showmanship. It was all there and America saw that. Good job.
