  1. Kris Allen @KrisAllen
    Thanks to Kris and everyone at the @morningshowto for having me on today.

  2. whoa Carmen has had four kids!? I remember I liked her back in her season. It’s not that crazy since her season was 14 years ago or so, but it just shows how time has passed!

  3. Angie Miller tweeted under an hour ago that she’s been told that Billboard will be premiering her new song, “Miles” at 4 p.m. eastern today.

  4. So I’m watching the World Series coverage (Game 7…go Royals!) and they just used Ella Henderson’s “Ghost” on a commercial for “Sleepy Hollow” :D

  5. “It was one of Frank Sinatra’s old cars! So it was a really cool energy on set.” –Dianna Argon

    He’s got a bit of a cold. I hope his voice holds up…they don’t have a day off until Monday

  7. I’m very glad that Emily will be getting another shot at a recording career.
