  2. Since Kris is announcing the People’s Choice nominees, and he was on the list for Breakthrough something-or-other, I’d wager he’ll get a nomination. That’s the way these things usually work. Now Adam was also on that list, so we may have a marvelous new fanwar if they both get noms.

  3. Well I’m happy about Kris doing the nominations for the People’s Choice Awards. I think that’s cool. And I hope to see Kris and Cat Deely next to each other because that would be a fun visual. Not as fun as Snoop and Adam, but it’d be up there for fun-ability.

  4. I’m hoping to see Kris next to Jeff Probst. Two very hot guys, IMO.

  5. It makes much sense that Kris will announce the People’s Choice awards. Looking forward to see that

  6. I saw Daughtry is supporting Nickelback here in Europe and for a second I thought of getting a ticket. But then I don’t think I can take 3 hours (Chris + Nickelback) of basically the same song over and over… Although I did like Daughtry (the first album is great for jogging).

  7. I noticed in the announcement that Daughtry will also be performing on the CMA awards with Vince Gill. I guess I’ll have to check that out. I saw Vince a few times when I lived in Nashville and should be an interesting duet. Looked it up and it’s Tennessee Line which makes sense.
