That's right American Idol fans! Kris Allen, that swanky cool hipster whom Paula Abdul calls straight up and likable, sang Mary Worth's favorite song tonight on American Idol: Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova's "Falling Slowly." This awesome number was featured last summer as "The Ultimate Make Up Song" after Mary and Jeff went crazy coo-coo.
It all started when Jeff got jealous after Mary coyishly dumped him for a guy who wanted to beat his own brother up in a hospital parking lot, and who was later appointed to the Town Council because he was just so darn straight up and likable - like Kris Allen himself. When Mary and Jeff finally got back together, Jeff treated Mary to the "Concert of her choice." And what did Mary pick? You guessed it: that Irish/Czechoslovakian duo Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova who just happened to be touring through Santa Royale, California, after winning their Oscar. It was only one of the greatest moments in Mary Worth history! You can re-live that moment now:
