Kris Allen – American Idol Season 8 Top 36 Contestant

Kris Allen – Louisville – 23 – Conway, AK


We only saw a brief clip of Kris in Louisville. He auditioned with his brother, who didn’t make the cut. Kris has been singing since he was 7 or 8 years old and is a praise and worship leader at the church he attends.

Kris, if you recall, was part of the awesome “White Chocolate” Hollywood round group with India Morrison, Matt Giraud and Justin Williams.

He’s had very little screen time on Idol, but if he comes out with a great performance (and I think he may have it in him) he could be a dark horse.

Here’s Kris’s MySpace. You Tube Goodness: “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”
