  1. LOL they got his album title wrong. Someone else did this as well just yesterday. I wonder what the PR packet says.

    It must be tough to go back on Idol and sing in front of the judges. I know the judges don’t say anything, but it must feel sort of strange after everything they go through. Must feel like a lifetime ago.

  2. Very excited about seeing Allison and Kris tonight. Hopefully they can show the S9 people a thing or two about performing on live t.v. I hope TPTB aren’t going to rush through these segments in favor of the useless crap that usually fills time on the results show. And I have my fingers crossed that a large percentage of people watching tonight will download Kris’s performance and also donate a little additional $$$ to the Haiti relief fund.

  3. My earholes will be grateful for Kris and Allison! Tonight’s group song should be priceless. Can’t wait to hear this bunch harmonize.

  4. girlygirl – ITA. I remember back to Allison, Kris, Adam and Danny’s first performances on this stage, and they were all lightyears ahead of anything we saw over the past 2 nights.

    I also hope that Kris is able to share his insights about Haiti’s needs, and not just perform. It seems like he wants to do that, but isn’t sure if there will be enough time. He seems happy to be performing for a good cause!

  5. I’m looking forward to seeing Kris & Allison tonight. I have to record the Idol episode for my son. He loves Allison.

  6. LOL cheese. The group song should be gold. I am looking forward to Kris and Allison cleansing my brain of the memories of the last two nights of S9 contestants.

  7. i’m so looking forward to hear his stripped down ‘let it be’.
    I hope it will raise a lot of money

    It will be nice also to hear our spunky little rocker :)

  8. Kris says he’s doing a “stripped down” version of Let it Be, which sounds like it could be really beautiful. I’m guessing Cale will be with him, given that Katy tweeted about them practicing last night (and annoying their neighbors!).

    I imagine it will feel kinda weird for Kris being back on that “tiny” stage, especially with the judges sitting so close and all. Could be awkward with Simon. If Cale is with him, I hope he doesn’t freak out!! I hope I don’t freak out worrying about them–gah! (repeat: it’s all about Haiti, it’s all about Haiti)

    For some reason, I’m not worried about Allison at all–you go girl!

  9. Yayyy! I miss Allison so much! I remember dialing for her the entire two hours during her group night. I haven’t voted much for anyone so far this season (and I didn’t vote at all last night – I plain old forgot to…which is SO unlike me! XD).

    Can’t wait to see Allison perform “Scars.” I love that song.

  10. I look forward to seeing Kris and Allison sing and of course, I hope a good amount of money is raised for Haiti. I think that Kris is going to do a really good musically and emotionally with Let It Be.

    Now for some shallow comments, what is his hair recently? and I’m still not feeling his facial hair thing. I hope the Idol stylists work their magic on him, like they did last year.

    Oh and the album is titled Live Like We’re Dying Fox lady? Fail.

  11. From the video that Jim C. posted this morning of his interview with Kris, it looked like he shaved. So no scruffy Kris tonight.

    I’m not worried about either Kris or Allison — Kris has so much more stage presence than he did when he first came on AI, and Allison seems like she’s always had stage presence.

  12. I’m really looking forward to hearing and seeing Kris tonight and I hope he gets to talk about his experience. It seems everyone who has come back to sing talks about having flashbacks when they get up on the stage. I think Kris has nerves of steel, so I”m not worried about him.

    Also looking forward to seeing Allison.

  13. Well, since truthi brought it up, I think Kris is adopting Andrew’s combed back hair now, except longer in the back. I rather like it! It’s a cool look for him.

  14. My earholes will be grateful for Kris and Allison!

    I hear you. These top 12 shows have been rough. I just watched Elliott sing the super cheesy Rock Around the Clock in the next thread and I couldn’t believe how grateful my ears were. Such relief to hear confident, good singing. Same with the three seconds of Kris singing in the tent–such ear relief.

  15. Seriously love this guy. Can’t wait to see him and Allison tonight to show S9 how it’s done.

  16. Yay! Krallison! Can’t wait to see them, especially after this week of problematic performances.

    On a shallow note, I hope the stylists can do something with his hair.

    On a not as shallow note – love when he doesn’t fight the twang in his voice like in that tent clip.

  17. JR Labrador, do you see how great Kris’s hair looks on the MTV clip? I’m sure it will look more like that tonight. In Haiti he just didn’t have it styled with product. It’s hot there; he said the tent was really hot. So no one’s hair would look good in that environment (mine especially). The last thing you would want is a bunch of sticky product in your hair when you’re hot and sweaty.

    I can’t wait to see him and his hair tonight (maybe with Cale too!) And Allison. I really miss S8.

    BTW – if anyone can tell me how to use the quote thing I would really appreciate it. I try different things but nothing works!

  18. OK, I’m going to sound crass, but while I love “Let It Be,” why doesn’t Kris get to pimp his single? Maybe they think that’s unseemly to do on a charity appearance, but since when did Idol miss a chance to blow its horn and hawk its wares? I just think it would be a rare primetime chance for people to hear what Kris is capable of.

    Othewrise, I’m delighted he’s going to be there and Allison too.

  19. OK, I’m going to sound crass, but while I love “Let It Be,” why doesn’t Kris get to pimp his single?

    next time colette. It’s a charity night for him.
    However (he he he) in the last couple of days his album went from under #100 to #20 :D

  20. OK, I’m going to sound crass, but while I love “Let It Be,” why doesn’t Kris get to pimp his single? Maybe they think that’s unseemly to do on a charity appearance, but since when did Idol miss a chance to blow its horn and hawk its wares? I just think it would be a rare primetime chance for people to hear what Kris is capable of.

    See, I look it as not a missed opportunity to sing his single, but that he wouldn’t be on the show at all this early, if not for IGB. So his singing, even a song that isn’t his, will increase his single and album sales, I’m sure. So those are sales he wouldn’t get at all, if not for taking part in this. So singing a song that isn’t his, where all the proceeds can go to charity is easier, and yes, I think seemlier. I think Kris would agree, that the focus should be on Haiti and helping the people there, not his musical sales/career. He’s going to still get some help with those, so yay, but it’s rightly going to be a bonus for the great work he’s doing to help others right now.

    Not as if he won’t be back to sing a single, maybe his second one by then? later and that will all be, rightly, about him and selling his music.

    I admire the show much more, and of course Kris, for making the right (to me) decision to try and take as much self-promotion as possible, out of something that is about others. Bravo to Kris and everyone who made that decison.

  21. “if anyone can tell me how to use the quote thing I would really appreciate it. I try different things but nothing works!”

    Me too, Giavonna. And in my case, please keep it REAL simple. I feel like the dumbest kid in the class.

  22. If Allison would have been on AI this year instead of last season I think she would have a chance of winning…

  23. Allison definately would have won this year. As everyone has said.. look at Alone versus the rest. Such a big difference. I’m still not giving up on this season though!

    PS- go buy Allison’s album “Just Like You” on iTunes.. it is on sale for $7.99 right now!!!!!!

    Don’t feel bad, many of us have asked the same question. Cut and paste the desired quote into your reply and select it. Then hit b-quote. If you forget to do this, you can manually insert the coding during your edit.

    Quite possibly. But then, one never knows about voting blocks.

    Regarding the whole concept of winners and losers: Suppose Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia, Jordin Sparks, and all the other previous year winners, had competed in the same year? Since there would only be one winner, would this make all the others losers in the public eye? BTW, please, this is not intended to open a discussion of who is the best of the bunch. The point is that each year is a competition, with one winner. After that, talent should prevail to determine future success, whether winner or “loser.” I just hate that those with talent who do not win in a given year are sometimes labeled as losers.

  26. i am so looking forward to seeing kris and allison on my big screen! yay!

  27. BTW – if anyone can tell me how to use the quote thing I would really appreciate it. I try different things but nothing works!

    Highlight what you want to quote ….
    click on blockquote ….
    paste your highlighted words next to blockquote ….
    click on blockquote again

    Now you are ready to type

  28. Highlight what you want to quote ….
    click on blockquote ….
    paste your highlighted words next to blockquote ….
    click on blockquote again

    Giving that a try

    Ha ha ha! Closer but that came out backwards. What I said is in the quote. Will try again another time. Thanks ZZ…….5 hours to Idol time and Kris and Allie!

  29. Just remember to put blockquote before and after the words you want to quote.

  30. I think there are two ways to block quote. I always use the one where you “copy” what you want to quote, then in the box, hit b-quote, then right click for “paste”, then hit b-quote again. The quote box does not appear in the box below, but will after you hit submit. I haven’t tried it the other way, altho that sounds easier frankly!

  31. @ginaorr: Watching @krisallen soundcheck at idol…moving….

    I can’t wait to see the performance tonight.

  32. Not as if he won’t be back to sing a single, maybe his second one by then? later and that will all be, rightly, about him and selling his music.

    I hope Kris does get to come back to self-promote because I really want to see that filmed-but-never-used promo!! (Well, and of course, to hear him sing another song from his album!) I don’t think that’s asking too much of AI, is it?

    Edit: ooooh, thanks bench for that tweet–I got all tingly seeing the word “moving”! I love when Kris moves me!

  33. Giavonna:

    Actually, I was referring to his hair in the Boston TV clip. It’s a magnificient edifice of LOL.

  34. @ginaorr: Watching @krisallen soundcheck at idol…moving….

    This is going to be awesome tonight!

    Thanks guys for tips on the block quote. Fingers are crossed I did this right.

  35. Actually, I was referring to his hair in the Boston TV clip. It’s a magnificient edifice of LOL.

    Oh yes LOL! It’s very big there. His hair is a mystery. Sometimes it looks like there is a ton of it and sometimes not so much. Wish I could get very close for an inspection. I saw him in NY during the soundcheck when he was on GMA. The studio is on the street level in Times Sq. with giant windows for easy stalking. He was just behind the glass. :) His hair looked great. And he is very wee. (Cale waved to me!) I took pictures but they aren’t so good due to all that glass.

    4 and a half hours til Idol!

  36. How to use the quote thingy….
    First, copy what you want to quote, hit the b-quote box….paste your quote and then hit the close tag box and viola….you should be good to go! I hope this works….Pix

  37. oooops sorry!!!! When I sent this there were no other helpers…..we are such good little helpers…. ;)

  38. Kris just tweeted:

    Watch idol tonight everyone. @AllisonIraheta is gonna kill it and I’m pleased to be able to help raise some money tonight with a special per
    4 minutes ago via Echofon

    ..and yes, you’re going to kill it too Kris

  39. .we are such good little helpers…. ;)

    Indeed you are, if this works for me…..fingers crossed.

  40. I can not wait for tonight. Hope Kris and Allison do great, I’m sure they will. And I hope that Ryan cuts down on the useless chit chat w/ the judges to allow Kris to talk more about Haiti.

    And MTV took out the video above because I can’t see it.

    OMA and OMK

    What is OMA and OMK means ? Sorry.

  41. Just watch the Fox video:

    Kris when asked about the future / what’s coming up ?, I wish that he mentions things specifically like the gig in Kansas, Bahamas, and is it Alabama or something too ? Please sell all these appearances, because people who watch these shows maybe did not know and interested to see you. I know that this is a regional morning show, but some people can go to these things.

    I know that it is his personality, he seems very comfortable selling / talking about other things but himself, but I’m hopefull that he’ll improve on that.

  42. What is OMA and OMK means ? Sorry.

    Since luv hasn’t gotten back to you yet, I hope she doesn’t mind my telling you what I’m pretty sure it means.

    Oh My Allison and Oh My Kris.
    Getit? LOL, she’s so cute.

    ETA: Oh yeah! And I’m really looking forward to Idol tonight! Yay, 19 on itunes Kris!!!

  43. I am so envious of all of you getting to watch Kris and Allison! AI hasn’t come to Africa yet or I would definitely be watching. I do hope someone posts videos of it for the rest of us. At any rate, I’m happy for you… enjoy… it should be awesome! (Though I do kind of feel like I did before he sang the national anthem at the NFC game… I’ll feel a lot better when I read the posts after the fact… His mom tweeted that she’s so glad she could watch AI the other night without knots in her stomach. I imagine her stomach is knotted tonight… mine is, and he isn’t even my kid!)

  44. check this recent tweet from one of the aid workers who met Kris in Haiti…
