Kris Allen – “All These Things That I’ve Done” – Sacramento – VIDEO

Kris Allen performs the brand new addition to his set, The Killer’s “All These Things That I’ve Done”. It’s taking the place of the horrifying “No Boundaries” Hooray! Me likey.

Thanks Pineapple for the video! I’ll be posting some of her photos, so watch for that soon.

And, I’ve been updating the Sacramento tour thread with links to videos all day. Check it out HERE.

Video after the JUMP…

  • GeminiDolly

    I liked it. It was the first time he performed it, so it will get better.

    Its my favorite song hes doing, beating out BrightLights.

  • Pam

    Very nice. Yay no more NB! :clap_tb:

  • dhunken

    Great quality video. You can see him and hear him so clear. Great job for first time and little practice. It works better for his set and I think the vibe he wants to project. I hope he has stuff like this on his album.

  • xdahlia

    Kris Allen is amazing at picking awesome songs. Hopefully his album will be just as good. :D

  • drea

    What a great quality of video! And I covet those seats! Thanks Pineapple!

  • chrgi

    The techies/Kris should really lower the angle of that mic. Kris having to lift his head to be able to sing into it is most likely affecting his voice negatively. He doesn’t sound bad, I just think every little thing counts especially since he has a lot more tour dates to go.

  • pineapple

    What a great quality of video! And I covet those seats! Thanks Pineapple!

    5th row seats, bby. :D As my friend put it, if Danny wanted to sweat on us…he could.
    But I’m glad you guys like it. :smile_wp:

  • https://twitter.com/draddee Sunn

    Kris does a good job with the song. He seems to strain a bit in parts, but I’m sure that will resolve itself the more the performs and tweeks it.

    Great job for a first performance. :clap_tb:

    And Halleluja! for no NB. :thumbup_tb:

  • Pixie Baker

    Kris wins me every time with his personality…..but not with this singing. This song for me was not good………….at all. :thumbdown_tb:
    (Pineapple…thanks for posting this tho….I appreciate everyone who makes all these recaps and videos possible!) Pix

  • haruhi

    High quality vid! thanks! Kris was really working it.

  • Q3

    Too bad he didn’t start off the tour with this song. He looked like he was having fun, moved around the stage a bit. I like it.

    But I don’t understand why the mike is so high.

  • calvinshobbes

    Good job Kris Allen. Way to rock out to an awesome song!

  • alison8701

    He can’t compete with the Killers when it comes to this song.

    for example:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiS_N0ozrUE
    ^the killers

    but he did alright. It’s a real good song. Even sung with mediocrity, it’ll normally get the crowd going. It’s a powerful song.

    butttttttttttt, he def needs to get the lyrics right.
    When everything’s lost, the battle is won.. no.
    While everyone’s lost.. the battle is won.

  • cinel22

    This is sooooooo much better than NB. He did a great job!!!!

  • hollygo9

    I want that Kris Allen cd playing in my headphones now, please. The wait is going to be agony. He is slowly becoming my all-time fave contestant.

  • will

    I’m still not crazy about the song choice, but this video clearly shows he loves it, so that’s already a quantum leap from NoBo-land.

  • Valentin432

    The song is great, love the killers. Kris does a good job specially considering the time constraints and you see that he has much more fun with that than NB (not surprising) but it doesn’t go beyond a solid cover that any competent band will do.

  • drea

    Has this been mentioned yet?

    There is some speculation that Kris especially likes this song because of this movement:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI_suOg7Awc

    On EW he talked about A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier being a favorite book of his. He also wears a bracelet that looks like it is from Invisible Children’s website.

  • http://www.thriftysisters.ecrater.com tammyinohio

    I LOVE this song so I’m really glad he added this to his set and got rid of the crap that is NB!! He looks sooo much more comfortable and having a good time with it.

  • weareallinnocent

    Wow great video! Thanks pineapple.

    And great song too. A bajillion miles (“to infinity and beyond”) better than NoBo!!

    Yay for Kris!

  • Lemon_C

    Kris deserves a Stand O for the song choice alone! Hehe… One question though, did y’all see the vein on his neck? Looks like it’s gonna explode… Otherwise, he looks hot and sounds good. Hea~

  • whyso

    I loved it and I love that it has meaning to him in that the video was used for the movement to protect the invisible children of Uganda. The children like Ishmael Beah in the book “A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier”. That is the book Kris recommended when interviewed by EW. Here the link to a video with the Killers song used to bring awareness to the problem…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pap1MEfSOGI&eurl=http://idolforums.com/index.php?showtopic=619376&feature=player_embedded

    He sings so amazingly and heartfelt when he emotionally connects with a song. NoEmo with NoBo!!!

  • TJP

    This is becoming my fave song of the whole tour, not only because I love The Killers…. But this song has also represent more meaning behind it, as you guys mentioned earlier.

    I think I respect him even more now, he is very subtle to raise awareness about these kind of thing but not rubbing on our faces with it.

  • stargirl

    Know i understand how he beat adam lambert.As someone said the song choice alone derserves a standing O.Kris has some major balls to pick a song
    that nobody thinks he could nail.I like the high note at 2:26.I dare anyone to say kris isnt a strong singer after hearing him on this song.

  • Vada

    He didn’t rehearse this song for a month. It was a quick drop in. It is only going to get better as the tour goes on. And, it’s very good already.

  • onlythegood16

    Thank you very much for that link, whyso! Powerful video.

    And I agree with TJP. I’m thinking this might become my favorite song of the entire tour. I love Kris’s performance, and I really like the song. *goes to get The Killers’s album*

  • dcmjfan127

    I so wish I had purchased tickets to this year’s show! Kris’ set is kick awesome! He seems to be enjoying himself so much more with this song!

  • SybilTrelawney

    Not fabulous, but very good considering how little rehearsal he’s had. at the moment its still kind of karaoke, but I’m sure it will get better in the next week or so. Much better for the set than No Boundaries To The Suckitude. Kris does have excellent musical taste, I will say that. His song choices all season show that too.

  • mgk

    I prefer The Killer’s version, but that isn’t a knock on Kris. It is their song, after all, and Brandon Flowers has a very distinctive voice.

    Kris has a way of tweaking the phrasing and flow of songs to make it more interesting than a straight cover, so I think it’ll be pretty awesome after he has more time to work on it.

  • Sunshinegirl

    Awesome! I had been really good up til now about not spoiling any tour stuff for myself since I’m going to the show in about 6 weeks. But I couldn’t help myself on this one! Nice job Kris! Oh this boy is a rock star in his own right!

  • alxsavage

    First time I listen to this song, but I really like the job Kris does with it, this guy truly feels what he is singing, I may not be a fan of his voice, but I would certainly enjoy him live.

  • Squirrely

    Fun song and Kris is having a ball with it. Can’t say I love his version but I love the good time he having with it.

  • revcat

    Thanks, I watched that video & it was really good. I read A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah when it first came. I couldn’t put it down. Strongly recommend it.

    I love the way Kris has a world view, he is not your typical kid.

    Love the song, love the Killers, love Kris! Will see Kradison next Friday, whoo hooo!

  • babybelle32

    He’s having so much fun singing that song, he’s connecting with the song, just like he does with the other songs in his set. I wish he was able to move around more, but I can still feel the passion that he has for this song. And, from what I can tell from the video, his voice sounds great.

  • lizardino

    I copied the lyrics to this song in the Sacramento show thread earlier if you want to know all the words. Great song choice!

  • richie10

    I’ll accept that dare because I don’t believe Kris is a strong singer. He always seems to be struggling to hit the notes, especially the high note you mention. I also don’t believe Kris beat Adam because of song choices anymore than I believe he beat him because he’s a better singer. We all know the real reason he beat him and I don’t need to go into that anymore. Suffice to say, the song is better than NB, but then again, anything would be.

  • auntieaimee

    Sweet! Nice job!

  • butte009

    Brandon Flowers has a very distinctive voice

    That he does. I love Brandon’s vibe – especially when he sported the guyliner in Mr Brightside. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BAO3MpbFBs. Hot Fuss is a freaking awesome cd. I still have it in my regular rotation after 5 years.

    Kris did a good job, IMO.

  • BeckyMD

    Cool song. I’m glad Kris was having fun playing it.

  • maturin

    Glad there’s a close version, thanks so much to the poster! Energetic and heartfelt first performance of this song. Damn he has me hoping good things for his record. Go Kris!

  • girlygirl

    Supposedly the tour musical director (that’s Dave, right?) tweeted that they were rehearsing this song before the show tonight. They probably hadn’t had a lot of time to run through it prior to last night, yet Kris still did a really strong job with it. Will be interestign to see how much he tweaks it after he and the bacnd get more comfortable with it.

We all know the real reason he beat him and I don’t need to go into that anymore. Suffice to say, the song is better than NB, but then again,

    I absolutely agree, richie10! Not meaning to offend, but Kris DOES have probs with the high notes (there’s no way he could ever compete with Adam’s high notes.) I know he is trying to live up to the Idol image but I feel bad for him. He seems like such a great guy but honestly, I have heard much better here in Vegas at karaoke. For those saying he didn’t have time to properly rehearse this song, sorry, happens all the time in the business. Adam made several last-minute awesome song choices on AI.

    I’m not being mean, just honest. IMHO Kris needs to just stick to singing ballads. For those who say he has a “strong” voice, I totally disagree! His guitar playing is great but that doesn’t mean he has the vocals to accomplish what he is trying to do. Sad but true, for me anyway. :sad_tb:

  • hwc

    Well, he’s having fun and, by golly, that’s what counts.

  • wand3rful

    who cares about competing w. clay…errr…..i mean adam? ;)

    anyhoo, he does justice to this song and w. a cpl more practices, should nail it…..and puhleez, singing on tour w. a large band, diff sound mix is not the same as an AI peformance.

    plus, all this talk of high notes is silly…he sounded mighty good on the SSB at the Lakers game and that requires some big glory notes

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    who cares about competing w. clay’ ¦errr’ ¦..i mean adam? ;)

    I may not be a fan of Clay’s style of music, but I still remember his “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and being blown away.

    Clay is one of the best singers AI has produced. I would have liked to seen him in Spamalot.

    Kris is a talented musician, but IMHO, can’t match Adam’s vocals. But telling a story and interpreting a song can be just as powerful as superb vocals.

    hwc, you always make me laugh!!!

  • wand3rful

    who cares about matching adam’s vocals? not kris. what do adam’s vocals have to do with kris singing the killers instead of NB? Nothing.

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    Wand3rful, I was just responding to your post about competing with Adam and/or Clay.

  • wand3rful

    i was being sarcastic mate in the 1st post…hence the ;) in response to some poster who brought up adam’s name and vocal range in this thread when it really has no point in THIS conversation.

    basically who cares if celine, adam, clay, whitney, my cousin vinnie, bob down the street, etc…all have a high vocal range? whats that gotta do w. poket idol or the killers?

    i got soul, but im not a soldier :)

  • Lys

    His guitar playing is great but that doesn’t mean he has the vocals to accomplish what he is trying to do.

    I think he’ll be fine. Kris is very aware of what he can and can’t do, vocally. He knows he doesn’t have the best or biggest voice in the world, but he does know how best to work within his limitations via savvy song choices, arrangements, interpretations, etc. So I’m confident that he can do exactly what he’s set out to accomplish during this tour. :smile1_tb:

  • ShariG

    Wow! I love the new song. Thanks so much for posting it. I’m not sure that it is my favorite in his set. I still love Heartless and also the way he sings Hey Jude and Bright Lights. As always I prefer Kris’s version to that of the original artists. I love that he sings songs that mean something to him. I would so loved to have heard him sing Falling Slowly on the tour, but this rocks out and is really, really good. Hooray for you, Kris Allen! Hooray for us!!

  • ShariG

    His guitar playing and keyboard playing are great, but what makes him extraordinary is his song selections and the heart and soul he puts into everything he sings. It is his voice that pulls me in. The instruments are bonus.

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    i was being sarcastic mate in the 1st post’ ¦hence the ;)

    Oh, ok, mate, I didn’t realize that. I just didn’t get the Clay eerr Adam reference. Wasn’t sure what that was meant as. Some could interpret that intentional mix up it in a negative way and even a ;) isn’t enough to soften the jab.

    Also, I think someone brought up Adam’s vocal range because another poster stated they could see, based on this Killers song, why Kris won. That always opens up a can of worms here at MJ’s.

We all know the real reason he beat him and I don’t need to go into that anymore. Suffice to say, the song is better than NB, but then again, anything would be.

    I guess I will join this dare because Kris has a strong voice or atleast the makings of a strong voice. Kris still has some technique problems, but they are fixable. His technique problems are cutting off his range on both ends, but any “straining” is due to technique and not due to a weak voice. Genetically he has the raw materials. This is not to say he will be covering four octave songs or anything like that, but I dare say that his natural range is more than the professional standard, and therefore more than enough to get the job done. Kris has the range that Kris needs in order to be Kris.

    I think the “straining” has more to do with emotionally really getting into the songs, as in see the veins popping on his neck. His technique is constantly improving, but in time he will have the technique to keep up with his emotions.

    The underlying beauty of his voice and tone is natural. I absolutely love his voice. Technique can be fixed and learnt over time, but Kris’s unbelievable musicality and musical pureness is talent that I think you have to be born with.

    Kris will be getting better and better. I think you are greatly understimating his natural talent.

    The other thing about Kris for me is that his voice sticks in my head for a very lonnnnnnnng time. I listen to a lot of music and it is rare that Kris has that ability to do that for me. Voices that can stick require strength to them.

    It took me a while to admit it during the season, but Kris was my favorite and Adam was my second favorite based on music preferences only. I would have had no problems voting for Adam, but Kris won me over and therefore won my votes.

  • rfb

    There is always just a handful of you people that just can’t get past saying negative things about Kris. He has his own voice, most people love his voice. Adam has his own voice, most people love his voice. The two have completely different styles. If you don’t like a Kris style, don’t listen to him, go and listen to Adam. Nobody is stopping you. Just stop downing Kris Allen, that is just so uncool.

  • lavender1960

    Great video, it makes me want to go to a concert like pronto or put on my Killers CDs, well the first two, No. 3 is in the car stereo……….I got soul but I’m not a soldier

    Not sure if it is Kris or one of the band but they even got the guitar licks/riffs down…

  • weese

    Oh thank goodness NB is out (never to be heard again hopefully). I like this side of Kris as much as the ballads. People talk about needing to see Adam to appreciate him I also think the same goes for Kris. Not for the outfits or the acting ability but for the honesty and complete commitment to a song that is obvious (whether serious or fun)when you watch. I really like both Kris and Adam for such different reasons. Love this song by the Killers. A great pick.

  • lavender1960

    When I heard it was going to be a Killers song, I was hoping maybe it might be When You Were Young…….which is one of my faves but All The Thing’s I’ve Done is more conducive to sing along for non Killer fans and easier for the band methinks – then again the references to Jesus might not have gone over well, bwah.

  • TwigLA

    Thanks for the video Pineapple and also thanks to April (forget the exact name) who posted links to Kris’ from the show earlier. They were both excellent and give different views. The sound is a bit different also. Interesting how that works depending on where you sit and what you record with.

    I love Kris’ new improved set. Yay for NO No Boundaries~ He sounds great throughout. I love his song choices as well as the emotion he puts into the delivery.

    Despite some criticism here about the veins on his neck – he’s thin and muscular. He doesn’t sound like he’s straining at all with the notes.

    Beautiful job, Kris! Now ditch the plaid, ditch the scrim, get the band closer to you and rock on!

  • TwigLA

    Grumble. I lost my post.

    Thank you Pineapple. Thank you April (videos in other thread) Thank you all who wrote reports.

    I love Kris’ set and his choices of songs. Much more of a flow and they fit well together. I love how he sounds and how he performs. I don’t think he’s straining at all. The guy is trim and muscular. I’m used to seeing neck veins.

    I still want him to ditch the plaid. (Yes, it is all over the stores here.) I’d like the scrim gone too and the band closer as part of his ‘set’. Last is that I wish he’d play the piano for Hey Jude, or the first part of it. But I do like the guitar.

  • pineapple

    So I wasn’t sure where to post this exactly, but here’s a video of DSB. Yes, I know- yet another video of the group song. But it’s the only other one I can offer at this moment. XD

    I feel very happy for Kris, he won, he is doing what he loves, he was able to ditch NB, he is a young musician on his way to grow. Btw, you can catch many performances like Adam’s in Vegas. Young singers trying too hard to be stars. Sometimes they even have good voices but none of them that I saw had the musicality and love of singing that Kris displays in his performances. Kris is a real deal.

  • Anastasia72071

    Soapbox0916
    I think the ‘straining’  has more to do with emotionally really getting into the songs, as in see the veins popping on his neck.

    About halfway through the season I started following MasterClassLady’s weekly critiques of each performance. She repeatedly mentioned straining of the neck muscles etc. re: Danny and Allison mainly, and sometimes Kris (and also mentioned Daughtry as a really bad offender), [paraphrase] as an example of how NOT to sing. She says something to the effect that they’re forcing the notes out from their throat, rather than pushing the notes out from the diaphram. This will damage the vocal cords eventually (“Scream On“, anyone?).

  • lavender1960

    Straining of the neck muscles, does that include that look like one of those main arteries are going to pop, reminds me of Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams…part of the gravelly raspy voices R us club………

    what causes the nodes on the cords then?

  • Mtlfan

    I really think that Kris will be a major artist in the years to come!

    Yep, that’s what she’s referring to.

    MasterclassLady, when she talks about straining the voice as per my above post, also mentions (specifically in relation to Danny & Allison) that there may already be problems of that nature (nodules). I know absolutely nothing about any of this kind of stuff, but MCL is an expert.

    Part of her critique of Danny during Birth Year Songs Week was “the raspiness in your voice may already be hinting at this development. You quite possibly may have some present nodule problems that a skilled throat specialist can quickly identify.”

  • whyso

    Yeah to what Anya said!!

    Oh yeah and I wanted to add that I’m a massage therapist and Kris throat muscle are extremely muscular and he has probably less than 15% body fat which results in the pronouncement of said muscles. He is build like an athlete in the sense of the combination of low body fat and large muscle mass. Not to get too far off topic but if you assess his whole body you can see he is actually has a wide body type through the hips and his legs are large and muscular. His body is very solid and grounded to the earth…compare him to some of the other guys (gokey and adam in particular) his strength goes horizontal inside of vertical like Adams…OMG that is so far of topics it’s not even funny…MJ feel free to delete – I would totally understand!! HA!

    Just wanted to add some professional assessment of his physicality and why his muscles look like they do…

  • Gerien

    I’m not a huge fan of the song, but its definitely a better choice than NB. But after hearing Kris sing it a few times, I actually found myself humming along to the chorus. And like some before me have mentioned, there might have been a hidden message in the song that he was trying to portray. That’s what I like about Kris, he knows he’s not the biggest vocalist in the world, he knows his strengths and weaknesses, he plays to the former and dismisses the latter.

    And boy, does he have a sexy lower register.

    “Straining of the neck muscles, does that include that look like one of those main arteries are going to pop, ”

    Not to get to technical but I’m gonna…I believe what you are referring to is his jugular vein taking the used up blood out of his brain – don’t worry that won’t pop. The muscle contraction (see previous post regarding his large muscle mass) is forcing used up blood into it so it can get re-oxygenated in the lungs – that’s why it looks so large.

    His brilliant brain uses up a lot of blood coming up with his awesome song choices and clever arrangements. Smart and sexy – it doesn’t get any better.

    Off topic but it’s late and I felt the need to discuss anatomy especially Kris because lets be real the boy is fine.

  • cookcricket

    I love how Kris connects to his songs. Oh, I hope the album is able to live up to this, or at least most, some songs.

    BTW, if anyone feels bad for Kris, don’t. Some have to rehearse over and over to achieve what Kris does naturally.

  • will

    hwc, you always make me laugh!!!

    I second that! But you had a bunch of posts deleted yesterday before I’d had a chance to read them, hwc, so please be tactful!

  • jelena

    you’re funny and clever whyso! why is that so? lol…

    anyway, i haven’t watched the vid yet, still in the office, gonna check that later when i get home, im just elated kris got to sing what he loves to sing! =) thank you TPTB!

    and i know, the moment we hear ourselves say “Kris singin what song??!!??”, it ought to be good.

  • SarahP

    oooohh i love his lower register!!!! who cares if he cant hit the high notes and if his muscle stands out. all this is blah blah to me. what matters is that (like Anya said before) after i listen to kris, i can hear his songs playing in my head for the entire day. his voice really has a lot of clarity and sort of very pure and has a distinct melody to it. and thats what i like about him.

    that and the fact that he chose MT20 & Killers song (i looovvvee both of them)…plus his cute looks matter too

  • jelena

    i got to say kris has excellent ctaste in music…maybe that’s why i love kris the most, maybe because i can so relate to his music..his set:

    heartless – i believe this is his winning performance, it sealed the deal..

    all these things ive done – excellent pick, not at all cheesy (haven’t heard his cover though)

    ain’t no sunshine – the emotions it evoke is like magic and hypnotizing…kris’ breakthrough performance in AI, and my fave

    bright lights – this is my fave performance in the tour

    hey jude – i love beatles, and i can’t complain kris’ version, it’s fun and heart-warming..

  • chrgi

    I’ll accept that dare because I don’t believe Kris is a strong singer. He always seems to be struggling to hit the notes, especially the high note you mention. I also don’t believe Kris beat Adam because of song choices anymore than I believe he beat him because he’s a better singer.

    Play That Funky Music vs. Ain’t No Sunshine? Born to be Wild vs. Falling Slowly?

    I know mileage may vary, but hell yeah song choice had a part in the outcome of the competition. I don’t care how well Adam can sing, if the song is crap, it’s still going to be crap. And none of his arrangements have really worked to change that because he seems to think arrangement = sing the original melody out of existence. And what he replaces it with isn’t even good.

    I can’t even remember his rendition of songs like One, or If I Can’t Have You, much less sing his version for you. Boring and tuneless, despite being sung well.

  • listen

    I have never heard that song before. It’s an okay song, the chorus seems really repetitive…

    After listening to Kris sing it, I have no desire to hear the original. (Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.)

  • anna in vegas

    Btw, you can catch many performances like Adam’s in Vegas. Young singers trying too hard to be stars.

    I wasn’t talking about performances. I was referencing Adam’s voice when someone was talking about Kris straining to hit the high notes. My opinion remains the same, Kris does not have a strong voice. JMO, of course.

    That’s because you don’t like Adam. I feel the same away about Kris’s songs. Boring and tuneless.

    Well richie10, at least two of us do, lol……..and one reviewer:

    “The ‘American Idols Live! Tour 2009′  features nine vocalists not named Adam Lambert and one that is.” :clap_tb:

    Anyone who thinks Kris’ neck veins stand out, should watch some Rob Thomas vids. Veins? Robs got major veins. He is 36 and has been popping those veins for a long time, now, and his voice is holding up great.

    I also agree with the poster that said that one reason Kris’ veins are so prominent, is his extremely low percentage of body fat. There is nothing in that lean neck to hide the veins.

    Oh, and a big uh-huh to what Gerien said about Kris’ lower register. I’ll take a sexy lower register over a super high one, anyday.
