Kris Allen – Live Like We’re Dying – KIIS Pre-VMA Party (VIDEO)

Kris Allen performed at the KIIS FM gifting lounge yesterday for a little pre-MTV VMA party. Here is the Season 8 American Idol winning singing his hit song “Live Like We’re Dying.” Hopefully Kris got some free swag out of the deal!

The VMA’s air tonight on MTV at 8 pm. Who knows who we’ll see on the red carpet!

    I think Torres is better at harmonizing with Kris than Cale.

    But was Kris wearing a girly top? or Maybe he just shopped at the wrong department(kid’s section)? LOL

    I wasn’t going to watch it because I’m a huge tennis fan but i just DVR’d the pre show at 7.I guess Jim is doing it and I love him and I’m hoping from your comment that maybe I’ll see someone else that I love.

    I haven’t listened to this song in ages.  I don’t know what made me click on it here.  But I’m glad I did.  He lowered the key on BWY with good results.  This song is a whole tone lower than it used to be, also with good results.  To me it means he’s coming into his true voice. 

  • girlygirltoo

    Hoping that KIIS-FM will post BWY and Monster, as well.

    Kris sounds good, as usual. Torres harmonizes really well with him.

    Kris’s change of management so far seems to be working great. After starving all summer for news of Kris, there are non-stop pictures, interviews, articles, videos. MTV Canada has also picked up the videos. I’m really hoping that we get a little KRIM show moment. jambajim already tweeted to Kris from the Gifting Suite. Someone yesterday tweeted a picture of a shirt similar to the one Kris is wearing and it was from Nordstroms. Also a stylist tweeted to Kris so if she was the one who gave Kris that shirt, YIKES! This summer Kris has worn flowery shirts over tanks at several of his shows. I kind of like the break from plaid.

  • girlygirltoo

    Urban Outfitters also sells that tank top, so he probably got it there. I’ve seen pitures of Josh Hutcherson wearing a similar tank top, so maybe it is popular with the “hipster” crowd :)

  • Pippygirl

    That shirt needs to go in a trunk in the desert along with the jacket from The Truth video.

  • elliegrll

    ….  and the pants that he’s wearing.

    The shirt isn’t bad.  It might be okay, if it were paired with another type of pants. 

  • Pippygirl

    There’s room in the trunk for the pants too. He’s lucky he’s so cute that it almost doesn’t matter what he wears. Notice I said almost….

    Not a Kris fan but I like to hear him sing this song… Hope he will get  more exposure for his 2nd album after the change in management.

    I do agree with you about Torres – I like the sound of the two of them together – I prefer Kris with Torres.

  • siennalily

    Oh that outfit! Oh well he still sounds amazing!

  • Eileen99

    When Kris started adding Torres to his acoustic sets some time in 2010, it added so much.  Torres has a beautiful tone & I just love the box he plays & when he does the beatboxing.  It’s a great combination & sorry Cale but I love Kris & Torres together best.

    I’ve seen plenty of acoustic shows & most everyone just has a single guitar or two guitars. Adding the percussion rounds it out so much better than just two guitars.

    Thank gawd for new management. I’m very optimistic about things.

    The most relaxed @KrisAllen was probably the whole #VMAs #BoN #SWAG day. Happy we can help!

  • hoosiermama2

    That bed of nails does NOT look comfortable–ouch! LOL to the shirt/pants comments. The shirt isn’t so bad since the guitar covers it up, but I haven’t liked those pants, like ever. Kris needs a new stylist (if he actually has one)!

    But more importantly, this was a good performance with Torres. Made me smile, and from the sound, the crowd reacted positively, too. Things are looking up!

  • mtlfan2

    that was a very good performance. I like too Torres harmonizing with Kris.
    I like the tank top but definitly not with those pants :/

  • nekola

    I’m glad that I’m not the only one that thinks Torres sounds better with Kris than Cale does. I don’t think that Cale sings with enough consistency — sometimes he’s on-key with Kris and other times he’s off.

    As for that outfit ….oh Kris. Like others have said the shirt isn’t that bad, but those pants need to be burned.

  • isb77

    Here’s the video of Kris & Torres on Good Day LA that same morning.  There’s a snippet of Monster, a short interview and part of Better with You.

    That bed of nails does NOT look comfortable–ouch!

    It’s supposed to hit pressure points. I’d at least try it.

    Glad to see that he’s getting all these bookings.

  • judes

    Thanks for the link . They sound great on Better with you. I actually like Torres & Cale with Kris as Cale harmonizes with a higher part & Torres with the lower so it is balanced . I love the way Torres plays the box though- he just oozes the beat & he’s so in sync with Kris musically -his enthusiam is infectious!
