  1. the Commercials are great!! Good scripts and he’s very natural!

    The bungee swing seems to be so fun!!!!

  2. Ford should use all 4 commercials and rotate them.
    I think Kris is really natural in these.

    I saw this one last year when I was in Singapore. Looked scary.
    I love Kris’ kicky feet, still moving.

  3. I love the Ford Commercials. They should totally rotate those….they are all really good.

    As for the bungee video…I don’t think I could do that. The blond girl is I believe his assistant. The other guy, is probably part of the road crew. In some of the Zirca videos you can see her sitting on the side of the stage taking pics and stuff.

    This was posted on what I think is Kris’ YouTube Channel…krisallen4real. There are six videos there so far. I hope we get more bts stuff like this. I love seeing Kris cutting loose and having a good time…the band is also taking all this in and appear to be having the time of their lives!

    I hope they are all rested up for tonight and they get a great reception!

  4. Ford should use all 4 commercials and rotate them.
    I think Kris is really natural in these.

    Yes, they most definitely should! :D

    The bungee swing is the type of thing I’ve always wanted to try…when I was younger, lol. BTW, is Liz his handler? Anyone know who the bald guy is? (It looks like Izzieq answered this above. Thanks!)

    I watched the Razor TV interviews last night. I enjoyed them a great deal. I almost wish that pop reviewer guy (Kevin) would see these, simply to see that Kris is not in this for the celebrity aspect at all.

  5. Thanks to that bungee video, I don’t have to go to the bathroom anymore.

    The Ford commercials are pretty cool, I really like Written All Over My Face (WAOMF looks like a stupid word so I don’t say it >_>). As a video game person I liked the comparison Kris made to a video game.

  6. Am I the only one who giggled when Kris said “Oh my God I’m so scared!!!” in that weird voice? :)

    And Kris is just so natural in these ford commercials.

  7. I agree that Ford should use these commercials in rotation, rather than the same one all the time.

    The bunjee swing video is cool. Kris is an adventurous guy! I’m not sure if Lizzie is his assistant or his handler (which I think are 2 different things). She seems to fit in well with Kris and the band though, which is important.

  8. I agree that Kris seems to just go with the flow and wants to try different things. What I found funny was that out of all three of them, Lizzie was the least scared and the big muscular guy in the middle looked terrified! I wonder who was taking the video.

  9. I think ALL of those Ford commercials are ADORABLE. I know I’m pretty good at talking! I’m with everyone who thinks Ford should use all 4 commercials.

  10. WAOMF looks like a stupid word so I don’t say it >_>

    haha jammasta… as a word, it sounds like a mantra

  11. Kris looked like he never wants to go on a bunjee swing ever again! LOL — but at least he tried it. I’d probably be too chicken to ever get n it in the first place…

  12. Am I the only one who giggled when Kris said “Oh my God I’m so scared!!!” in that weird voice? :)

    No, I just forgot to mention this. So funny!

  13. Kris looked like he never wants to go on a bunjee swing ever again! LOL

    He did look a bit ill didn’t he? I’m sure I would, too. It didn’t look so much scary as it looked like it would make me lose my lunch.

  14. I love that “leaves” commercial. That is the best one in the bunch. Ford should use these commercials during other programming, not just AI.

  15. Okay, I watched the bungee thing again because they were discussing something that was actually scarier in the end and I could have sworn they said ‘the swing’, but it wasn’t something they were on at that moment.

    I actually thought Kris seemed to be taking it in stride and someone mentioned a “Bobby” trying this and that’s what Kris was saying no to. He kind of just shrugged when someone mentioned doing it again.

    LOL, or am I waaaayyyy too much into analyzing this?

    On the waomf commercial it fits with people being good at talking. Hee!

    Edited for grammar.

  16. Does anyone have any info on the Kradison concernt tonight…start time, performance order, etc? I really hope that Kris is shown some love tonight at the concert. I assume as the current AI he should close out the show.

    ITA!!! I have wondered why we haven’t seen the original one at any other time (and I have watched for it when I’ve noticed a program running Ford commercials). Come on Ford! Spread the Kris love around!

    It was good that they started with the commercial that actually shows his name and the name of the song to remind people who he is. Keeping fingers crossed that we will see these new ones sometime during the AI season, which runs, what, about 5 months? All 4 commercials are all great!

    Does anyone have any info on the Kradison concernt tonight…start time, performance order, etc? I really hope that Kris is shown some love tonight at the concert. I assume as the current AI he should close out the show.

    MJ said in the headlines thread that it starts at 7.

    I do not assume at all that Kris will close the show since Ryan is running this concert. I think he will have Adam close the show. But hopefully there will be an encore with all 3 of them singing together–Don’t Stop Believing anyone?? :-)

  19. I know when someone went to one of Kris’s show’s they said afterwards that Cale told them the order was Allison 30 Minutes, Adam 45 Minutes and Kris 45 minutes in that order. So unless things changed since then that should be the order. It was on a Kris website that I visited were I read that. And girlgirl said someone on tweeter twitted the same thing.

  20. Your right hoosiermama, with Ryan hosting this thing probably shouldn’t hope for Kris to go last. Sorry, but I am having some trepidations about this concert. Sorry, I will be honest to say that I never thought this was the best idea to do. Just let them do their own thing…why place them in a position for yet another straight comparison…didn’t they have enough of that during the AI tour. I am sorry to sound so pessimistic, but with Ryan in charge…ugh.

    I just want Kris to be well received. ETA: I just saw a list of people on twitter that are going to the Kardison concert tonight. I will be honest and say I am getting a little worried. The majority seemed to be Adam fans…practically no mention of Allison or Kris. It would suck if people left after Adam (if he’s not last). It would suck for both Allison and Kris. Sorry to be so pessimistic about this. Maybe I need another cup of coffee.

  21. I doubt that Ryan is running the concert, I think StubHub is just using his name for promotional purposes.

    I don’t think Kris will be surprised or even care if Adam’s fans leave. He has a hit song, and he just finished an incredibly successful promotional tour in Asia, so he knows that his career is on the right track. I doubt that he’s going to be too upset about people who’s main issue with him is that he won American Idol. Arkansas was winning by a mile, until Adam tweeted telling people to vote for NY, and within hours, NY made up over an 2000 vote deficit to Arkansas, so I think Kris is aware of what happened.

  22. He looks great in the commercials! It would be awesome if they used all of them either throughout the AI season or on other shows. I have really enjoyed watching all of the video’s this week.

    Kris will be fine no matter what tonight. I stopped worrying about him months ago. I have a feeling that he will still put on an awesome show, no matter how many people are left in the room. Plus I know for a fact that there will be at least 4 Kris fans there who adore him and will stick around for him. So he can sing to them if everyone else leaves.

  23. Isn’t that twitter link put up by a Kris fan? I’m a little apprehensive about the concert as well. No matter what, Kris will go out there and give a great concert and after tonight it will be over.

    I think the main reason I’m apprehensive is that if one small thing happens to make it appear as if Adam was the lone star of the show, we may not hear the end of it for awhile. DNW!

    Having said that, I’m going to just wait and see what happens, hoping for the best and believing these comments will be few and far between. Adam seems to have a lot of great fans, esp. here. ;)

    In the meantime, I’m hoping to see more of these Ford commercials on TV where they belong! :D

  24. BTW: I honestly don’t think there will only be 4 people left to see Kris.. LOL.. Just throwing the worse case scenario out there.

  25. I agree with you jmom376 if they leave oh well. It’s there lost. His a great singer and if there really going to leave just because Kris won over Adam oh well. Adam is doing really great without winning Idol and has a career out of being on there so they should be happy about that.

  26. Hmmm…didn’t know about Arkansas being ahead until Adam said to vote for NYC…interesting. I guess I just would never consider leaving after my favorite performed considering that someone else is on stage doing his best to entertain me, I would want to show support as well for everyone performing on stage. Even if Kris takes it in stride at some point it has to be a little hard, especially given the high he must be on afterthe success of the Asia shows. Hopefully, if he does go last, the fans of the others will give him a chance to show how he has improved as a performer and what a great show he puts on.

  27. Went off to watch the razor interviews, which were good.

    ilovekrisallen39, from a “winner” standpoint, the order you mentioned would be “proper”, but this isn’t the Idol Tour, so I think Ryan could do whatever he wanted. And to me, he backs Adam more than Kris, so that’s why I expected Adam to go last. But, I guess we will just have to wait to see!

    I feel your concern, Izzieq, and hope that if Kris does indeed perform last, that no one will get up and leave. It’s a smaller venue as I understand it, and that would be really noticeable. Not to mention rude! I just hope Kris and the band aren’t so jetlagged that they are able to summon up the energy to put on a good show, which we all know they can. In spades.

    The more I think about it, I think the 3 performers will be showing so much love to each other (because they do really like and respect each other), that the crowd will follow suit and show love back to all 3. That is my hope anyway!

  28. Yeah alot of Adam fan’s are kool I follow some of them on tweeter. And some there are more of an Adam fan but still like Kris and Allison also. I wouldn’t want any fans to walk out of anyone of the three performance. There are great singers just different. And all three of them really get along,and so should there fans. I know I love all three of them and listen to there Cd’s.

  29. I hope the venue setup allows folks to get close to the stage. Kris really seems to draw a lot of energy from having the fans up close and personal. I would think Adam and Allison would like that as well.

  30. Even if Kris takes it in stride at some point it has to be a little hard,

    I think it would be hard if people were walking out because of Kris’ performance/ability or because he’s doing a bad job, but those who walked out during the tour and those who will do it tonight pre-planned their actions, and their actions have nothing to do with Kris or his ability to entertain people.

  31. Can’t wait for tonight. I wish I could be there but hopefully someone well be able to cell cast and well be able to hear the performances. Better go and take a little nap and clean the house before tonight.Talk to you all later.

  32. I’m feeling a bit of angst over the concert too so I’m glad to know I’m not alone. It would be absolutely ridiculous for Kris not to perform last since he is the winner. I don’t have a lot of hope that the crowd is going to be all hearts and flowers tonight– especially since the fanwars seem to be heating up (again) as of late.

  33. Even if Kris takes it in stride at some point it has to be a little hard,

    I think it would be hard if people were walking out because of Kris’ performance/ability or because he’s doing a bad job, but those who walked out during the tour and those who will do it tonight pre-planned their actions, and their actions have nothing to do with Kris or his ability to entertain people.

    I am going to have to disagree with this. If someone has pre-planned to walk out on a performer after their favorite has performed, it does have to do with Kris. It is being done as a “diss” to that performer in general or to show that you are not worth them staying..that goes to what they think of that person’s performance ability or talent. So, I will have to disagree. It is absolutely directed at Kris. I guess I would just never think of pre-planning to do something like that to a performer who is giving their all on stage for the sole purpose to show that your favorite was better or whatever their reasoning maybe…I see it as an attempt to diminish Kris and show who the “real” star is. I just find it rude and childish of whoever would do something like that (to any of the three of them, btw…not just Kris). All three are up there doing their best and putting on a show for everyone…just show some respect to all three of them and enjoy what they have to offer.

  34. It would suck if people left after Adam

    If people leave, there will be more room for the Kris fans up front. *shrugs*

    No doubt a few people will leave at different times throughout the show, for various reasons. Just like during the tour, it doesn’t mean anything, but people on twitter can still make a big deal out of it.

    But, hey, if Adam is turns out to go last tonight, we’ll be treated to tweets about people walking out on him.

  35. I guess I just don’t want anyone to walk out on any of the three of them at all. Just enjoy all three. It would suck for all three for that to happen.

  36. I am going to have to disagree with this. If someone has pre-planned to walk out on a performer after their favorite has performed, it does have to do with Kris. It is being done as a “diss”

    The diss says a lot more about this group of fans, and nothing about Kris or his abilities, so it doesn’t have anything to do with them. Anyone who does this is saying more about what type of people they are, and nothing about what type of performer Kris is. If it was based on Kris putting on a bad show, then he should take it personally and try to improve, but since it’s about people who can’t get over the fact that their favorite didn’t win, why should Kris take it personally, or act like it has any meaning, except that some people need to grow-up.

  37. There HAS to be a group encore of some kind–something to bring all 3 out on stage together at the end. That should help keep folks in their seats.

    I’m done angsting now. It will be what it will be. *deep breath*

  38. With their schedules I don’t know if they would even have time to rehearse a group number. It seems like Kris was there early and then Adam and Allison came later. Unless, let’s say Kris did Come Together at the end and Adam and Allison came out to do that all together..you know “come together” at the end (yeah, pun intended). Otherwise it might be hard to work something out.

  39. Someone just posted this on the Kradison concert Twitter:

    krinja_signal RT @Mix1007 We’re hosting a live online artist chat with Kris Allen on Sat @ 4pm ET! What question wld u like to ask…http://bit.ly/aHTq6z

    I don’t know where Mix1007 is located. Anyone know?

  40. There are a lot of Kris fans who got tickets to this concert. The order supposedly is Allison-Adam-Kris, but I would bet that they will end the show with some group number(s). So if any of Adam’s fans leave after his set — and I’m sure some of them will – then they might end up missing more of Adam. So too bad for them if they are going to act that way. IMO it’s rather immature. I think the majority of Adam’s fans are great, but there are a handful who really make me mad. Of course, to be fair, that can be said of Kris fans as well — or fans of pretty much any musician. This behavior isn’t limited to just Adam fans, that’s for sure. Most fans are terrific, but there always seem to be a few that you really just want to punch in the mouth.

    There are two separate twitter pages for this event – one if for Kris fans only, one is a general page for all people tweeting going to the concert, no matter who they are fans of.

  41. IzzieQ

    That station is in Tampa. And it’s a live chat with both Kris and Allison before their “Meet Ball” gig. Allison actually tweeted about this:

    allisoniraheta
    # Sup homies join me and @KrisAllen fo a live chat Saturday @ 4 pm.. E.T on http://www.Tampabaysmix.com.we all know y’all have Q’s for us xD about 3 hours ago from Echofon

    Also, there may (emphasize the word MAY) be a live stream for tonight’s concert at this link (fingers crossed)

  42. What a bunch of worrywarts. Sheesh!

    What are these Ford commercials, anyway? Are they supposed to be airing during AI? Just curious.

    BTW, if these are alternate takes, the takes they used are going to be even better. :)

  43. Yeah I guess we shouldn’t be worried Ross. What’s going to happen well happen no matter what. I’M just a big worry in alot of things. Love the different outtakes. Tonight should be fun. Jim’s going to be there tonight and I think Michael S. Is going to be there also. I think some one tweeted that Lynsdey Parker is going to be there also. And she be came a Kris fan. And I follow some people that are Kris fan’s that are there tonight.

  44. The above btw, is Glen Hansford (sp?) covering Kris, covering Glen Hansford and U2!!!! SQUEEEEEEEE! I don’t squee ever! I haven’t even listened to it!!!

  45. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puFw9xTYTfA

    Lurking on twitter I found out about this!!!! Pretty cool!!!

    Glen Hansard even gave Kris credit!!!!!

    “Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova from The Swell Season performing the Oscar winning song Falling Slowly during their concert in Milan. They added a snippet from U2’s With or Without You at the very end; Glen explained how he took the idea from American Idol winner Kris Allen.”

  46. I love these Ford Fusion commercials! His laidback style and the concept of hybrid mesh so well. I think Ford found an unlikely but perfect spokesperson in Kris.

    I have to agree, these are great!

  48. Thanks MJ for all these videos. Gee Kris makes me want to buy one of these Ford cars as they have so many extra features!! They should show all of them – I had no idea these features existed!!

    Great to see the Razor interviews – loved Kris’s comment when he said that he has improved in interviews a lot!! He handles all those snarky negative questions with ease now – they roll off like water off a ducks back. Hopefully soon when interviewers note that he’s not affected by these questions – they will stop asking – as now they really are irrelevant to the future!!

    That Bungee swing doesn’t look nearly as bad as the original bungee rope from the bridges in New Zealand!! Its much easier to be propelled by something than to have to jump off yourself & go upside down[ not that I’ve done that mind you- just watched]. I would however go on this swing .

    I love though that Kris was up for all sorts of challenges on this tour- including trying the “local” food!!

    I am just going to enjoy any footage that comes from the NY concert -& in Kris’s words- “couldn’t care less ” about those who may or may not walk out on this concert- its their loss. This may be the last chance for a while for these 3 to be together [ even though Kris & Allison will meet up ] so I am going to enjoy the positive vibe they will be creating !!

  49. Kris’s cool vibe is perfect for these commercials. Like if you buy a Fusion you are cool.

  50. Kris’s cool vibe is perfect for these commercials. Like if you buy a Fusion you are cool.

    I know! We’re a Chevy family, but have to admit, it’s a good marketing campaign. Kris has grown amazingly in his speaking. He is convincing b/c he actually owns/drives the car. A big plus is hearing AWM and a snippet of WAOMF, too — I actually emailed the company after seeing the first ad during an AI show, to tell them I thought the commercial was well-made and persuasive. I hope AWM is the next single, because the fun music from these ads will be recalled if heard on the radio, I bet.

  51. I love these Ford Fusion commercials! His laidback style and the concept of hybrid mesh so well. I think Ford found an unlikely but perfect spokesperson in Kris.

    Oh, I can not wait to see all 4 on TV.
    Yeah, probably they will premiere at the AI shows.
    I’ll make sure I come here first to see if Kris’ ad will appear or not so I’ll be ready.

    What a bunch of worrywarts. Sheesh!

    That is so funny.
    Yes, personally I’m a worrywart because I get frustrated that Kris has NO worry at all. About anything. Geeeezzz.

  53. The one commercial that I was hoping for Kris is a razor commercial.
    I mean, he seems to need it often enough. With his gorgeous face up close. Perfect.

    I’m just dreaming.

  54. Arkansas was winning by a mile, until Adam tweeted telling people to vote for NY

    Oh so Adam told his followers to vote for NY? I remember reading somewhere that he does not mind which city wins. Seems like he minds after all.

    Anyway, how do they give out the tickets? Do they get to choose whose fans to give to? If so, I would not be surprised if Adam, who is the headliner, will have the most supporters at the concert.

  55. Kris could sell me ice cubes in an igloo at the North Pole in winter. Go Kris!!
