  1. Oh my gosh, there is way too much adorableness in this video. He looks so good…totally fangirling here.

    LOL @ the homeless guy story. I would def watch Kris in a soap. Would he do those raunchy love scnenes, tho? haha

    Kris’ cd is amazing.

  2. BTW, in the “up close” section on the front page of people.com there is a cute video of Kris and Katy in what appears to be a photo shoot.

  3. Very cute! Cute when answering about being in love with Kate Beckinsell(sp?). Hee!

    Here’s a question Kris, where are the AOL sessions?

    Thanks for posting mj!

  4. In another post somewhere girlgirl said Kris’s Publicist said it was delayed and she’d let people know when it well be up. Hopefully soon, I really want to hear RG so bad.

  5. It’s Kate Beckinsale. Funny answer, though. Go for Kate Winslet, better actress, equally beautiful, equally awesome British accent, Kris! Oh well.

    I hope they do pick up his song for “Scrubs.” They’d be just the ones to do it, too.

    Yeah, where are those AOL sessions?

  6. It’s Kate Beckinsale.

    LOL, that’s what I had at first. If I’m not mistaken, Kate Winslet is more on the classic beauty side, whereas Kate Beckinsale is more on the “cute” side. Maybe…lol, such analysis (on my part), lol!

  7. That “homless people are picky these days,” line is so funny. I love his sense of humor.

  8. Kate Beckinsale is smoking hot. Kate Winslet appeals more to women I think.

  9. It’s Kate Beckinsale.

    Great taste! Even I, a female, think she is gorgeous! :)

    As lately, Kris is awesome to watch with interviews/questions! Just love his sense of humor and non-poker face!

  10. I like his homeless man story. I gave a homeless man my funnel cake once and he said, “What? No fork? No napkins?” Hilarious.

  11. I like his homeless man story. I gave a homeless man my funnel cake once and he said, ‘What? No fork? No napkins?’ 
    AND
    ‘homeless people are picky these days,’ 

    OMG LOL!!! !!! Love his sense of humor!! + As always Kris looks good enough to eat!!! Nomnomnomonoommm!!!

    AOL Session Vid delayed!? Boo!!! DO WANT “Red Guitar”

  12. Funny and adorable. I’m trying to decide if he made up the paper airplane contest as he was answering or if they have really done that. He is so adorkable.

  13. He’s adorable!! Love to hear him in interview
    lol at the plaid rule and the homeless guy story.

    I wish the AOL session will be available soon :)

  14. yup, kate beckinsale is hawt. saw her and her hubby at the “grand” opening of his work studio and she is stunning in person. one thing i hate most about celebrities? their perfect hair and skin. unless you shell out mucho cash on peels/serums and blowouts, there is no way a regular gal can look like that :( sob sob. great answers once again from Mr. Idol 09, especially the homeless man being picky about his vegetables. LOL same thing happened to a gfriend of mine, she tried to give a sandwich away only to have the homeless man give it back and ask for cash instead.

  15. Kris is so darn cute. I have to say that his workout would have to be more than running on a treadmill – his biceps, pecks, and I suspect abs are dangerously hot.

    Thanks for posting this as I was despondent that the AOL Session did not post yesterday. What will I do when there is not new Kris news/videos every day?

    I made a promise to myself that I will never get this crazed over an artist again……..there is just something about Kris that I adore.

  16. Funny and adorable. I’m trying to decide if he made up the paper airplane contest as he was answering or if they have really done that. He is so adorkable.

    I’ll weigh in because you know I have nothing else to do…ha!

    I believe he made it up right on the spot. Hilarious, no smirk or anything, and “I usually win.” LOL!

  17. The sandwich sounds delicious, although I hope he doesn’t take up acting anytime soon because he’s right, he sucks at acting :P. I saw him acting in a few videos with his friends. He can’t even be a corpse. He SMILED after getting shot. AFTER. You do NOT smile after getting shot, silly. I might need an athletic cup to watch him act, it’s like getting kicked in the crotch.

    Unless of course he takes acting lessons.

    Alright With Me is the perfect song for a TV show. My cousin gave me a DVD of Scrubs that I still haven’t seen…. Need to get on that.

    2:52 ahahahahaha:) you have to loveï »’ this guy!”

    That was funny. What dino show was he talking about?

  19. So when will the AOL session come out again? (I’ve been telling myself to be patient and go review jingle ball posts and videos while waiting. )

    Happy holidays to everyone! :)

  20. The dino show must have been Dinosaurs, which ran on ABC Friday nights a while back. Kris must have been a big TGIF fan. It was produced by the Muppet people and featured a baby dinosaur that said ”Not the Mamma!” a lot. That’s what Kris was saying in falsetto.

  21. I really hope Kris gets to meet P. Mccartney someday (even if it’s just a M&G and has nothing to do with a collaboration) because his love for him knows “no boundries”.
    I think he should continue writing awesome songs and leave acting to Katy :-). But as he says you never know. I would watch anything he is in even if it’s just for the lulz created by watching his attempt to act.
    In a recent performance the band broke the plaid rule so apparently that day two kick-awesome paper airplanes were made and they couldn’t decide which is the best, lol, he totally made that up. However Cale has said that if they are lucky two can wear plaid, so i guess they were really lucky that day. Socking fact: none of them was Kris, LOL and lol@me for analyzing this thing!!!
    Most of Kris’ fans maybe laid-back (at least according to him) but I think he underestimates them a lot: how do we know the plaid rule? Cale told us! How did we get hold of “I was played”? It’s all over the Internet!
    I think if Kris ever played saxophone it would be awesome (he has also mentioned cello, he really loves playing instruments) and funny: according to what he has said to Jim there is already a Kris Allen who is a saxophone player.

  22. Just a reminder from Kris’ publicist:

    ginaorr: Upcoming Kris Allen TV – 12/25 Disney Xmas 10 AM ET/PT on ABC, 12/31 Fox NYE 11 PM ET/PT on FOX, 1/1 Conan repeat on NBC.

    She forgot to mention the Letterman performance 25/12, the fans reminded her and she thanked them so this is also true. No word yet on the AOL sessions :-( If we miss “O Holy Night” just because they get posted after Christmas I’ll be very sad.

    LLWD video (by Kris Allan. Who? The misspelled first name is expected but the last name…really?) from the Charlotte radio station: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4WIhXSRu08

  23. No word yet on the AOL sessions :-( If we miss ‘O Holy Night’  just because they get posted after Christmas I’ll be very sad.

    Was this on twitter? (I don’t have an account.) Why aren’t fans pinning her down on what’s up with the AOL sessions?

    Also, the traditional 12 days of Christmas actually starts on Christmas, so having O Holy Night after would be nice too, imho. ;)

  24. “Kris is so darn cute. I have to say that his workout would have to be more than running on a treadmill ‘“ his biceps, pecks, and I suspect abs are dangerously hot.”

    Ok, first time ever that a comment makes me sweat!

    Great questions and answers by the way. Bet Kris makes a badass paper airplane.

  25. LOL I, too, think he is obviously lying about his workout routine. He is just too shy to share. :D

    The AOL thing just pisses me off.

  26. Was this on twitter? (I don’t have an account.) Why aren’t fans pinning her down on what’s up with the AOL sessions?

    Fans were asking her yesterday and her answer was:

    ginaorr
    Kris Allen’s AOL Sessions has been delayed :( Will let you know when it is ready to go up.

    No further word today. You are right about “O Holy Night”. I don’t think they will miss the opportunity to release it since they have it recorded and it’s definitely relevant anytime during these 12 days, I was just being eager. Actually it’s relevant to my interests anytime of the year but non-fans will be interested only during these days, that’s why the sooner it gets posted the better. Till then I will be listening Kris’ version of that song that’s on youtube and the other Christmas songs from the shows.

    he’s talking about the dinosaurs in “power rangers”. kris allen likes “power rangers”. how presh and adorkable is that?

    Did anyone ask her why it was delayed? I guess I’m not a very patient person. ;)

  29. She just tweeted that it probably won’t be up until January. Kris’s and Allison’s both.

  30. She just tweeted that it probably won’t be up until January. Kris’s and Allison’s both.

    Well that’s disappointing! But then, it will give us something to look forward to in the doldrums of January (trying to have a “half-full”outlook, like Kris)!

  31. he’s talking about the dinosaurs in ‘power rangers’ .

    Are you sure he’s not talking about Barney? LOL.

  32. he’s talking about the dinosaurs in ‘power rangers’ .

    Are you sure he’s not talking about Barney? LOL.

    I think someone upthread already said Kris was talking about the sitcom, Dinosaurs. It was on in the early 90’s. The baby dinosaur used to hit the father with a frying pan and say “not the mama.” I thought this was what Kris was saying/imitating in the Q &A.

  33. I loved that. Thx for posting, MJ. (Kris is so great; he’d be an awesome neighbor . . . or dinner date.)

    Alright with Me on Scrubs. that’d be great.

  34. Well it’s nice to know something about the sessions. I still wonder what the delay is, but I guess there are some things in life we just can’t know. waaaa.

    kino! Welcome and um, uh, stutter….THANKS!!!!

  35. ^*sigh* another dead horse clean-up in Aisle 7! Slow and steady wins the race, looking at the long-term picture, etc…

    Oh, and sorry to burst y’all’s bubble but that shirtless photo above was long ago proven to be a Photoshop job. Check his head (I know, it’s hard to look away from the abs…).

  36. Sorry, I thought the abs picture looked a little bit suspicious, but it cannot be too far from the truth.

  37. I must have missed this one because of the z100 Jingle Ball was the same day.

    At 0:27.

    Kris, Kris, don’t hide your hotness behind Cale. LOL
    I could just see his face getting red and immediately deflecting the attention.

    I have a big grin on my face while watching the Q & A.

    And :( for AOL session.

  38. Does Kris still have the lowest selling album of all the winners?

    Since it hasn’t stopped selling yet I don’t see how this can be determined. According to a lot of people it’s one of the best of all the winners’ albums. Maybe the best. I can’t say because I haven’t heard them all. But I wish the high quality of the album was focused on a bit, as well as the numbers.

    Absolutely. I have my absolute favorites (The Truth, Red Guitar, Let It Rain) and my favorites (BWCU, AWM, Send Me AYA, LLWD), and then several more that I like, and the rest are OK.

    Then, he started to sing Is It Over at the Jingle Balls and I like that one more and more. WAOMF was OK for me and then I saw the close up video of him singing that at Sacramento JB. Well, that one video made me a fan of that song now because I kept imagining Kris with the microphone up close.

    Anyway, I’m sure he’ll change my mind with the other songs too once he starts singing them.
    The quality of this album is unreal IMO.

  40. Oh, and sorry to burst y’all’s bubble but that shirtless photo above was long ago proven to be a Photoshop job. Check his head (I know, it’s hard to look away from the abs’ ¦).

    I did wonder, tbh. It looked a little off.

  41. The quality of this album is unreal IMO.

    It is. And I’ve the same experience as you, Ratna12, finding new songs to love as I either play them more or hear Kris do them live. I actually like every song on the album to one degree or another and that’s usual for me.

  42. ” The quality of this album is unreal IMO”.

    I agree with all of you on this! All along, I’ve been listening to it either in my car or my CD player at home. My husband got me an MP3 player last monday so I downloaded the album and for all of you who have not used the MP3 or IPOD in listening to this album, I can assure you that you’re missing something huge. I’m sure those who have used it will attest to this.

    You will appreciate the album even more when you play it on any of these two…….sigh. I’ve not lput it away since then, wow, Kris is amazing!

    The guitar riffs, the drums, his vocals, OMG!
    Guys, go get it on ipod or mp3 if you haven’t already. You’ll not regret it! But remember, don’t burn it, go to amazon or itunes.

    Ick, I hate that shop. Here’s a shirtless photo from several years ago.

    http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f354/eternalblue81/153xl4g.jpg

    This one is photoshopped too as you can tell the body wasn’t Kris because that body was wearing a gold wedding ring on his right hand. I also know those are not Kris’ legs because I saw them before in one of the AI video when he jumped into the pool after the top 13 moved into the huge house. Hopefully you guys know which video I’m talking about. He has nice body. :) Someone was trying to make Kris looks fat and has big fat legs in that pic… Can’t fool all of us though…

  44. snlw,
    This one above is not photoshopped. Infact it’s from a good source and that was many years ago so it’s possible he had a little bit of weight back then. And Kris does not have tiny legs though I wouldn’t like to say he has fat legs, he has no tiny legs either.
    I like his legs anyway, they’re nice, just take a look at his legs when he wears those tight jeans especially the back of his legs.

    snlw,
    This one above is not photoshopped.

    I agree. I remember seeing that one early on in the competition, and it was posted by one of Kris’s friends. The first one is def photoshopped though. snlw, I don’t know if you’re from the US, but here wedding rings are (typically) only worn on the left hand. The right hand must have been some other ring. Is anybody else going nuts because we can’t get the AOL Sessions? :sad:

    Oh, did anyone else get the USA Weekend paper with Kris on the front? This is one picture I had never seen, but it’s a lot nicer than the ones of him smiling kinda cheesy like in front of the Christmas presents. My son and his wife brought it to me…it was an insert in their paper in SC.

    Thank y’all for enlightening me on the dino show. I remember that one now. :) Kris is really dorky. (Now if someone can do an extended play on that voice he did. hehe).

    I love the album. I sometimes buy CDs to get to my favorite artist and their latest songs but end up fastforwarding through most of the album. With Kris’, I listened to all and is still listening to the whole album up to now. Seeing the songs performed live (through the videos here) and seing the band getting better and better make me want to say – “Woohoo!” to Kris as he is really talented and deserves every good things going his way now, and more… I wish him all the best. :)

    And thanks to you all for sharing his shirtless photos. :)

  47. Ahhh, shirtless Kris. lol It’s fun to see how his weight changed quite a bit during AI. Not that he was fat at all in the beginning, but defintiely bigger. Now, he is so skinny. But, he has a nice build due to the “workout routine” he doesn’t like to talk about.

    I love his album, it’s fantastic. I don’t see how anyone can’t love it.

  48. Oh, did anyone else get the USA Weekend paper with Kris on the front? This is one picture I had never seen, but it’s a lot nicer than the ones of him smiling kinda cheesy like in front of the Christmas presents. My son and his wife brought it to me’ ¦it was an insert in their paper in SC.

    Do you get the USA Weekend paper on Thur.???

  49. snlw, my husband sometimes brings USA Today home from work…I don’t guess it’s connected to USA Weekend. ?? Why?

    Hey, Kris peeps! I just checked Itunes, and LLWD is STILL #23 overall! This tells me that things are looking good for Kris. I fully expected the song to fall because of all the Christmas songs out there, but it’s higher than it was a week ago! Yay Kris!

    Don’t USA Weekend arrive on the Sat. or Sun paper but today is Thursday. That’s what I’m asking as I want to see it. :)

  51. Diane, when was the USA Weekend published that has Kris on the front? The one you indicated back in your post at 7:31 am this morning.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone, btw!!!! :D

    I still can’t believe how much I love Kris’s album!!! Some of the songs at varying degrees as some have indicated, but none that I dislike, or even feel annoyed listening to.

  52. cookcricket, the hard copy is dated November 27 – 29. The story is online at usaweekend.com, but they only have the cheesier photo. Aha! I just searched for it, and there’s a smaller picture of the cover here:

    http://www.usaweekend.com/09_issues/091129/091129krisallen-guitar-contest.html

    Since it’s Christmas Eve, here’s the People video about Kris and Katy again.

    http://ow.ly/Pmrl

    Did anybody notice Kris flick Katy’s hair at :54? I just noticed that, and it made me grin. Funny how I had never noticed that before. [And I wasn’t even looking for this story! I was reading about some couple whose 19th (yes, 19!) child is in intensive care, and there was the headline about Kris and Katy.] :smile:

    cookcricket, there’s something about Kris live that is just all kinds of awesome. I have a new appreciation for Is It Over. And I’ve recently been listening to From The Ashes, and I really like that one too. There’s not a single song on his album that I can say I dislike. Love most of them!!

    And, yeah, Merry Christmas everybody!

  53. Ok… met my sis after a whole year… she lives in UK. She has no clue about American idol, anyone involved with AI so she had no idea about Kris Allen… I ofcorse filled her in about him then played “I Need To Know”, she immediatly sat up and said, “I like his voice”…. Then I played her “Bring It Back” she smiled and said “there’s this beautiful sweetness in his voice…” Then I played “Is It Over” and she loved!! it…. on & on !!! YAY !!! I’m sooo happy I can share my love for Kris’ music with her.

    Merry Christmas, fellow benches ;) !!!

  54. Thanks for the video again Diane! Very sweet and I like that you pointed out the hair flick! Cute!

    Also, I was just trying to clear up what I thought was a misunderstanding regarding when Kris’s pic. was in the paper. I think snlw may have thought it was a new picture. That is a great cover photo though! ;)

    I hope number 19 is fine for this family!

  55. Merry Christmas to all my Kris Allen peeps! I hope everyone, including our BB, is having a great holiday!

  56. Funny pic from Kris’ brother about Kris and Cale!

    So, he likes a koala and imitating a bunny; all the cute cuddly things.
    I laugh just by looking at his face.

    And about this Q & A, I love it about the Kate Beckinsale question – how he is conscious about being married already. It is OK Kris, just because you are married doesn’t mean that you are blind of somebody’s looks.

    Merry Christmas to all, especially to you Kris.
