comment Repeated final line in Psalm 150
את הפסוקים כל הנשמה תהלל יה, שהוא סוף פסוקי דזמרא, אומרים פעמיים (טור או"ח סי' נ"א). הסיבה לכך היא דבריו של ר' יוסי 'יהי חלקי עם גומרי הלל בכל יום' (שבת קי"ח). רצה לומר שמסיימים את ספר תהילים המבוסס על הללויה, ואם לא יכפיל את הפסוק האחרון, לא ייראה כמסיים. מסיבה זו כופלים בשירת הים את הפסוק 'ה' ימלוך לעולם ועד' שהוא סיום הקטע ויושע ה' (מנהגי מהרי"ל הל' תפילה).daat.ac.il/encyclopedia/value.asp?id1=1413

comment If I daven amida very slowly what do I do when the shatz reaches Kedusha?
@paquda: Biur halacha asks your question and says that even though it is an interruption, that is how we rule one should remain quiet and listen. See also further in the Aruch Hashulchan where he also asks your question and says that this is how we do it.
