Kris Allen And Allison Iraheta to Guest on FOX New Years Eve Special

I’m hearing that Allison Iraheta and Kris Allen will appear on the FOX New Years Eve special…

I need to get myself another TV before December 31, so I can watch Allison and Kris on FOX and Adam Lambert on ABC’s New Years Rocking Eve!

  1. Or get you one with the PIP function! Then all you have to decide is which gets relegated to the smaller screen.

    ETA: Yay for Alli and Kris, and for counterprogramming, lol.

  2. This is great for Kris and Allison!

    MJ, do we know for sure that Adam is still scheduled for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve Show? Is this something you can check into? Thanks!

  3. i don’t know why i forget that the dick clark rocking eve is on abc and not fox. anyways.

    i’m so happy that kris and allison will be on the fox one. question one: where is the party at? Los Angeles? question two: are they performing? (i know kinda a stupid question but it says guests so i just want to make sure.)

  4. Or you could just get a dvr that can record up to 4 programs at a time while you are watching another! #GoAdam! So proud of you!

  5. abc woudl be mad to drop Adam .. as people will tune in just to see if he does the same thing again .. so that’s more viewers for them

  6. Funny. I was just this second on KAO & the Fox website to see if they’d announced anything yet. I was thinking they’d have Kris on, so this is great! And yay for Allison, too!

  7. Please let this not be a rumor. I’m so excited. Usually I never see this kind of thing, except for Carrie U a couple years ago or was it only last year. I forgot.

    I think that there is one concert that pre-taped early on and is aired on the New Years Eve. Is this the one ?
    If this is the one (hopefully taped in LA), I wonder how to get to that one.

    Yayy KRIS !!

  8. i don’t know why i forget that the dick clark rocking eve is on abc and not fox. anyways.

    It’s the Ryan Seacrest thing!

  9. Yay!!! Now i know which show we’ll be watching in my house if we’re home for it!!! Go Kris! Go Allison!

    KRALLISON for New Years

  10. this makes me very, very, very happy!! yayy!! Love both of these guys!!

  11. MJ, if the Dick Clark special is a Ryan Seacrest thing, does that mean it’s a definite event for Adam even if it’s televised on ABC? Seems like it would be on AO’s site if it were. Your thoughts?? Thanks!

  12. Is this the same one that Cook was on last year? If so, good luck peeps, I hope it’s better than last year’s. (rolls eyes)

  13. Is this the same one that Cook was on last year? If so, good luck peeps, I hope it’s better than last year’s. (rolls eyes)

    Oh yes, same one. I don’t think I had ever been so bored in all my life! It came in 4th in the ratings that night. I understand why. I will watch just to see their performances, otherwise I’ll be switching channels back and forth from Fox to ABC. ;)

  14. MJ, if the Dick Clark special is a Ryan Seacrest thing, does that mean it’s a definite event for Adam even if it’s televised on ABC?

    Well, I don’t think anything is definite yet, just because ABC has not formally announced the line up yet.

    The only source we have is that Billboard article…

  15. I’m going to a wedding New Years Eve so I’m going to miss all 3 of them! lol

  16. Kris stated in his interview with Fox 40 that he and his band will play a 5 song set tonight at the 107.9 The End Jingle Ball all from his album. I guess the four he has already done and hopefully Arlright With Me.

  17. I’m gonna pass on Kris and Allison’s event. Last year’s with David Cook blew chunks. Actually, I have a dvr so I’ll record both and watch Adam’s live.

  18. I don’t think ABC intends to blackball Adam indefinitely, just that one show, one time ban, over and done with, I assume.

    Yay for Kris & Allison! Even if it is #4 at least it’s something and we’ll get to see them and they’ll get more exposure (not to the cold weather though).

    Are there dvrs that tape 4 channels? Mine only tapes 2 at a time, and you can watch a 3rd (previously recorded) show at the same time, but if there’s one that records 4 at a time, or 3, I want it … but I doubt if either Cox or Comcast have it. Maybe it’s a tivo or a satellite thing.

  19. So glad Kris and ALlison are getting a TV gig for NYE, even if it is on Fox, lol. David’s part was great last year, Evel Kneivel, not so much. Let’s hope the show isn’t so lame this year!

  20. Is this the same one that Cook was on last year? If so, good luck peeps, I hope it’s better than last year’s. (rolls eyes)

    To avoid any misunderstanding, Cook did a fine job, as usual. It was the show that was truly awful.

  21. Yay Kris and Allison! I just want to say that the picture above is soooo incredibly cute. They are a couple of very good looking, talented people :)

    LOL, we spent NYE last year with some other families and I made them all have Fox on. The kids were excited about Evel Kneivel. After the jump, one of the kids said, when is he going to jump?

    It was great seeing DC though and it will be great seeing Kris and Allison! These are the CDs I bought, so it seems appropriate for me. :D

  23. YES! FINALLY! A show with my 2 favorites WITHOUT Adam! WOOHOO!!! GO KRALLISON!!! :)

  24. I did not really like last years Fox special..I just usually watch the one on ABC.

  25. I don’t think for one second that these gigs are booked with idols fans in mind. They are supposed to introduce these guys to folks outside the AI bubble and hopefully gain them some new fans. It therefore doesn’t matter if we watch or not, afterall we have bought what we want to buy already.
    So, I strongly believe that, whether it’s a boring event or not people will definately be watching and hopefully, these two talents will gain some fans outside the bubble. We idol fans are going to move on to the next season anyway come January. I will not because I really love these two.

  26. So glad Kris and ALlison are getting a TV gig for NYE, even if it is on Fox, lol. David’s part was great last year, Evel Kneivel, not so much. Let’s hope the show isn’t so lame this year!

    LOL – yeah, historically the Fox NYE special has been pretty horrible. But, it’s still a good TV gig for that night. So, still good exposure for Kris & Allison I think.

  27. That’s great that all 3 will be shown on New Year’s Eve!! Its also good that Kris is on Fox- as there’s more of a chance it will be shown on Foxtel here in Australia!!

  28. Nice photo! Yay for Kris and Allison performing together. I guess I’ll be watching Fox for New Year’s Eve. I usually channel surf anyway since it’s not live for us and it’s like eating someone’s party leftovers.

    Wonder if anyone will be live streaming it like justintv does with a lot of shows.

  29. Ugh, that Fox New Year’s show is jank. Kris’s general aura of wonderfulness can’t save that wreck.

  30. Pretty good interviews except the part where Kris mentioned that he didn’t see himself headlining soon

    That just made me think that they are lining him up a tour as an opener for someone

  31. That just made me think that they are lining him up a tour as an opener for someone

    You don’t make much money opening, but you get to reach new audiences which is probably the most important thing for Kris right now.

  32. I don’t think that’s what he meant. The interviewer asked him who he would like to open for him and he answered he doesn’t see himself headlining that kind of tour yet, meaning not a tour where he will have an opener. Normally, college tours and intimate settings don’t need openers. And those are the kind of tours I expect him to do.
    He will definately be opening for a few known artists too which is very good for building fanbases.

    “You don’t make much money opening, but you get to reach new audiences which is probably the most important thing for Kris right now.”

    How about some college tours? Do you think he will at least try that route too?

  34. Pretty good interviews except the part where Kris mentioned that he didn’t see himself headlining soon

    That just made me think that they are lining him up a tour as an opener for someone

    I like the idea of Kris opening for someone. Less pressure and you can learn a lot from the headliner.
    I saw Carrie U opened for Keith Urban and Carrie was already a superstar and yet her set was only about 35 – 40 minutes long.
    So, I don’t see that as a sad thing. He can also gain more fans that way.

  35. ABC’s New Years Rocking Eve!

    I’ve been watching this show for a few decades, so lucky for me that Adam is going to be there. It’s tradition for me. However, I will be watching from my t.v. I’m less than an hour away from NYC but I have no desire to freeze to death. lol.

    This is in NY right???

  36. Umm Allison better back up off of Adams man! lol kidding!

    I am going to watch Adam, of course. I mean it will be New Years Eve and the start of a new decade! I bet there will be fireworks and I don’t just mean Adam hehe. I am surprised Kris isn’t just napping his way into the New Year hehe.

  37. I am surprised Kris isn’t just napping his way into the New Year hehe.

    What does it mean ? I’m sure Kris is not THAT boring a person that he’ll slept through New Year Eve.

  38. I am surprised Kris isn’t just napping his way into the New Year hehe.

    wut! ..that’s really coming from nowhere

  39. Is this the Billboard New Year’s Eve Special on Fox or is it Fox News NYE show?

    I’m happy that Kris & Alison will be performing that night. I’ll definitely be watching.

  40. Great for them! Should be a lot of fun. I always switch between the channels anyway!

  41. Girlygirl, great video of “Can’t Stay Away”! As much as I love Kris on guitar and piano, he sure is able to get the crowd energized by working the whole stage, not tethered to an instrument. This song is fantastic in concert.

  42. OMG!! Girlygirl, the mighty conduit!!! Thankyou!!! The vid is amzing.. You can really feel the energy!!! Whoa, he really worked the girls into a frenziiiiiii!!!he really rocked it out!MAN!

    Kris singing “I’ve tried shots to deny” to Cale!! Awww, these boys are killing me !!!

    & Krallison!!!Yay!!

  43. Hopefully these videos from Sacramento are put on the main blog as this is the second thread they’ve appeared in – its easier if they were all together!!

    I loved the crowd participation & also how Kris does seem really into the performance!!

  44. They need to set a duet of Allison’s DWTP acoustic, with Kris in guitar.

  45. That is terrific. Well, I guess I’ll have to record Kris & Allison on the FOX show, since my son loves Alli and he will definitely NOT be staying up to watch her.

    Mommy will be watching The Glambert live though! ;-)

  46. I haven’t watched a NYE special in more years than I could count but I’ll tune in for Kris. I hope he gets to do more than one song.
