Kris Allen – NewNowNext Interview Plus, On The Red Carpet – VIDEO

Kris Allen answered a few twitter questions for the Gay pop culture blog, NewNowNext. Click this link to learn the name Kris used on the road to check into hotels, all about his hairy feet and, how he feels about the peeps who would ship him with Adam Lambert. Heh. (VIDEO)

The video after the jump is cut from the same interview, but was posted at AfterElton.com. Lots of stuff in there about Adam, and Kris answers even more twitter questions.

Bonus: I added Lyndsey Parker’s Red Carpet interview with Kris After the jump. Awesome soundbites: “Hello Kitty makes everything better”,   “We are the embodiment of love, all three of us” and “I hope it’s on the teleprompter, or I’ll be screwed.”

  1. Didn’t anybody post this yet? Favorable review for Kris from the well-read NY Times.

    edit: actually, you don’t know that. Please don’t make assumptions about posters. Also, please provide links for news stories

    “These are also the plainest lyrics on the album, but the fact that Mr. Lambert has always been most natural on songs that sound as if they were meant for Mr. Allen in no way persuaded Mr. Allen to attempt to infiltrate Lambert turf on his self-titled debut, which was released last week. It’s a seamless continuation of his ‘Idol’  run, full of gentle songs that he only rarely tries to rough up. The flattening of the recording process suits him well ‘” unlike Mr. Lambert, who’s constantly wondering how to dole out his raw vocal power, Mr. Allen’s only concern is not getting swallowed outright. He succeeds somewhat on ‘Live Like We’re Dying,’  a syrupy, apocalyptic number originally recorded by soft-rock droners the Script. And the producer Mike Elizondo, who’s worked with Dr. Dre, Fiona Apple and, recently, Carrie Underwood, another ‘Idol’  winner, shocks Mr. Allen out of his comfort zone with ‘Can’t Stay Away,’  a zippy Maroon 5 impression, and a light country-inflected number, ‘Is It Over.’ 

    Mr. Allen is still accomplishing more with less, and he has made both the better album and the more apt one: it really shouldn’t be much of a surprise.”

  2. LOLOLOLOLOL Mr. Bow hahahaha Make me love you more, Kris. I dare you.

  3. Strange questions- but Kris handles them well!! It must be awkward to think that a photo of your feet are all over the internet!!

    Thank you Colette for the transcript from the NY Times – I couldn’t find a review for Kris there!! I definitely agree that “less is more” as far as Kris is concerned!!

  4. Ok, maybe I’m a little oversensitive about the whole thing, but I found myself getting annoyed during Lyndsey Parker’s comments about ‘You have it easier than Adam’. Just me?

  5. Hi MR. WOW WOW, you’re wow! Oh Kris will Kill me and you look hot and sexy in that video.

  6. mr. Bow Chica Wow Wow… that’s hilarious!!

    all those interviews just make me wanting to know more about him

    He has such a fun take on life in general. Love him!

  7. I am amazed at how well he handled those questions… some of them were way out there. He had his initial WTF? moment, then jumped in and answered them…. and he embraces his hairy feet. And I laughed out loud at his response to the idea of him doing a Details-like shoot. I still remember the awkward interview on the beach surrounded by cheerleaders and their pompoms…

    I don’t know if he was just tired or what, but his accent seemed more pronounced to me in the logo/afterElton clips.

  8. @kt_cle: I wasn’t bothered by that (considering it’s Lyndsey Parker), but I thought it would be nice to add that he has it easier BECAUSE of the way he is. He’s not the kind of person who places a high importance on being seen and getting attention, so he has it easier not because Adam is Adam but because Kris is Kris. Don’t know why Lyndsey feels the constant need to connect Kris and Adam.

  9. OK, I need to post this here just because this is a Kris thing.

    I’m from Los Angeles and never, ever heard Kris’ song in the radio except that one time LLWD on a Friday debut on KISS FM.

    Anyway, I went to a supermarket on my lunch time (Smart & Final), and what do you know ?. I heard “No Boundaries”. I was in shock.
    And yes, I tried to go to a certain spot where the sound was clearer and just stood there until the song was finished. :)

    I don’t know what radio station it was, but it made my day.

  10. LOL LA is a big epic fail. They haven’t played LLWD at all. I’ve been requesting it through Mediabase’s KIIS FM playlist and to no avail.

  11. KIIS is unlikely to play it as LLWD doesn’t really fit its format But KBIG 104.3 is a HotAC station that plays Kelly, Daughtry, Jordin and David Cook — so I have no clue why they aren’t playing it. And I haven’t found a way to request them to play it — their website has no requst form or request phone #

  12. What a great concert:
    Kris
    John Mayer
    Michael Frante and Spearhead

    I could get behind that. ;) But honestly, I would rather just see Kris with a small opening band. If he opens, he’ll get, what, 30 minutes? Also, I prefer Gavin DeGraw to Mayer, so that’s what I would push for (if DeGraw is touring behind Free; I don’t think he is).

    I love Lyndsey, but WTF with saying he’s normal in what I took to be a condescending way? I mean, that was just weird, wasn’t it? And if there could be ONE interview where they didn’t mention Adam–I know, Adam was performing, blah la la, but still–that would be great.

    Off to listen to the other interviews. Oh, and Kris looked pretty damned sharp last night.

  13. You need Jim or Slezack to do that…they dnot bring Adam up unless its silly kradam fics..lol

    You know thats maybe why he is so comfortable interviewing with them…and…gasp…its..about…his…music

  14. I wasn’t bothered by that (considering it’s Lyndsey Parker), but I thought it would be nice to add that he has it easier BECAUSE of the way he is.

    Starr – your exactly right. Kris has it easier because his personality/approach/style/attitude makes it easier for himself. She almost made it sound like he should feel bad for having it easier. If Kris decided to have a diva “I won and I demand to be treated like I won” type tirade (or something equally attention grabbing), you can be sure that he wouldn’t have it so easy.

  15. @kt_cle: Although I would love for there to be an SNL sketch where Kris goes on a tirade and smashes things in a diva moment LOL That would be awesome.

  16. I would definitly go see John Mayer if Kris was to open with him!! Otherwise not at this point. I just got to listen a bit to him but have still to know more about his music before I can tell if i really like it or not.

    But, like suebrody, I would so much more like a tour of his in small venue. Then instead of 30-45 minutes, we could have a full concert :)
    I so wish he’ll come to Canada especially in Montreal (although i’d drive to Toronto if he was performing there)

    One of the thing I like about him is his ability to face confortably all the media buzz about Adam and his corollary for him (being kind of looked down on). He’s never defensive and what struck me is his ability to be able to see those other viewpoints and embrace them for what they are. This guy is so sane

  17. Kris is just handsome and charming. He has an intelligent wit. He is as understated as Adam is over the top — what a contrast!! I wish you a long career Kris!!!

  18. He just has such a zen vibe about him. Nothing ever fazes him. When it does, he knows how to not overdramatize it (see: Renegade perfomance on Idol). He’s kind of inspiring, actually. He got a lot of shit for winning American Idol, even when his win was supposed to be celebrated. And yet he never let those things get him down. The next time something ridiculous happens to me, I’m looking at my WWKD wristband: “What Would Kris Do?”

    Have people seen this? I think it’s not final, but Kris is ranked 10th, 4th for albums this week on HHD: http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi

    That number on the far right? What does that mean? Sorry, I just looked at the chart and my mind exploded from all the numbers. Is this good news for Kris?

  20. Well, it’s not actually any news at this point. They’ve only got 37 percent reporting, and because of the way they do it, there’s no way to conclude what that means about somebody’s ultimate sales.

    Different *kinds* of sale outlets report at different times in the process, and different artists’ albums sell very differently at different outlets.

    At this point, being in the #10 spot is about what had been predicted, I think, so that probably suggests that he’s on track to hit last week’s prediction of, what was it? 90,000.

    But you really can’t tell. All the places that Kris sells well may have reported already. Or all the places where Kris sells well may not report until the last group comes in tomorrow! So about all you can say is — so far he’s about in the spot that was finally predicted for him, so he may be on track to hit the prediction, but in fact he could go below it or way above it, depending on who’s reported their sales and who hasn’t…. Not much of a conclusion, but there it is.

    (The number at the far right is the number of reported sales so far….) But there’s no way to know what percentage of his ultimate total sales that is, even though there are 37 percent of outlets reporting.)

  21. On a purely shallow note…..I love his hair in the NewNextNow video!

  22. They seem to have been stuck on 37% a good, long while. Don’t they usually update as the day goes along?

    That’s funny, Heidi. I thought the same thing about his hair!

  23. Does the number include digital sales and hard copy cd’s or you can’t tell at this point?

  24. It will eventually include both, but who reports when is iffy, which is why lucy said what she said about not being able to tell. When iTunes adds their numbers, most of his digital sales will be in. When WalMart and Best Buy add their numbers, more brick-and-mortar sales will be in. But we don’t know who’s in, or what percentage of their sales, since they don’t always report all of them at once. I can’t remember who it is, but I think it may be iTunes that does two bunches.

  25. “I’m from Los Angeles and never, ever heard Kris’ song in the radio except that one time LLWD on a Friday debut on KISS FM.

    Anyway, I went to a supermarket on my lunch time (Smart & Final), and what do you know ?. I heard ‘No Boundaries’ . I was in shock.
    And yes, I tried to go to a certain spot where the sound was clearer and just stood there until the song was finished. ”

    Well I’m from Sydney[ Oz] & we still only have No Boundaries for sale here on i-Tunes !! I’m hoping they were waiting for the Oz idol season to finish to put Kris album out?

    “Five Questions with Kris Allen
    Six months after winning American Idol, Kris Allen talks about his new self-titled album and how he uses Twitter to let people see his ‘stupid side.(‘ We’ve got 5 more questions with Kris coming ‘” stay tuned!) http://www.cosmogirl.com/entertainment/celeb-qa/kris-allen-nov09

    Thanks mmk28 for that link. Some good questions there and am glad to learn something new about Kris.

  27. Loved the LOGO interview!!

    Kris has another winter radio concert lined up. He’s performing at KISS 95.1 Kissmas Office Party. It’s a Charlotte Pop station (market #25) that just started spinning LLWD this week. He seems to be the headline act on a bill that also includes Iyaz, Hey Monday and Jason Derulo.

  28. @Judes
    “Well I’m from Sydney[ Oz] & we still only have No Boundaries for sale here on i-Tunes !! I’m hoping they were waiting for the Oz idol season to finish to put Kris album out?”

    I watch Stan Walker in your Australian Idol.
    His “Hallelujah” was great. Although his low notes were not as good as Kris.

    I kept replaying Kris’ “The Truth” just to hear – While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling , the walls we build together are tumbling …… – just to hear his low notes. So Awesome !!

  29. I don’t know if this has been posted. Kris will be headlining Charlotte’s 95.1 KIIS-FM’s Kissmas Office Party on December 17

    Kiss 95.1 “KISSMAS OFFICE PARTY” w/ American idol winner Kris Allen, plus Jason Derulo, Iyaz, and Hey Monday.

    http://www.kiss951.com/

  30. KIIS is unlikely to play it as LLWD doesn’t really fit its format

    Okay I guess I don’t ‘get’ why LLWD doesn’t fit in this format. Every time I listen they are playing Taylor Swift, Miley, KOL with the other R&B/hip hop they play on there over and over. I think it would fit right on there. I’ve been known to be wrong though. LOL.

    ETA: Ratna: I get it and appreciate that you hear NB! Yay! Perhaps an in store station or an AC station! Anyway that voice is wonderful regardless. ;)

  31. katyallen I just did 7 loads of laundry… Things get backed up when you move!!! 22 minutes ago from Echofon

    katyallen RT @tawneej: @katyallen Wasn’t it so much easier when Kris wore the same shirt all the time? Yes!! Lol 19 minutes ago from Echofon

  32. It seems Kris had a gig todayper this tweet.

    2Early : Watching Kris Allen performing live at SABAN FREE CLINIC DINNER. Really talented Artist!

  33. Finally I saw the AMA red carpet interview of Kris and he was questioned about AL performing and Kris said “Of course, there is. If AL is doing something, there is hype”.

    I don’t know why but that just makes me really sad. And this is nothing at all against AL, but Kris is soooo talented, played all these instruments, great singer, good song writer (becoming a great one IMO – love Red Guitar), funny, goodlooking, etc,etc. – and IMO the hype is so small compares to what he deserves.

    Anyway, I just hope that eventually he will get appreciated more.

  34. Kris

    Just Fox executives. No big deal…….RT@NoteRobot oops. hope u were alone???
    about 1 hour ago from Echofon

    Note to self: find pitch before you start singing.
    about 1 hour ago from Echofon

    LOL

  35. No Kris, Hello Kitty does not make everything better. You do.

    Awww, washyourhands you could not be more right! I actually think he affected LP somehow in this interview (in a good way). While my heart went out to him, I think he truly believes that ‘everything will work out’. I believe this as well. :D Kris Allen is one ‘stand up’ guy and tbh, I cannot get enough of him! Every single interview lately has been nothing short of amazing. And that cosmogirl interview where he talks about how they can’t truly show their personality on idol. Oh soooo true. We missed out so much during the season, but he’s making up for it now by leaps and bounds! However, in the end we did find out all we needed to know about Kris Allen on idol. And what would that be? He is all about the music!

  36. KrisAllen:Just Fox executives. No big deal’ ¦’ ¦.RT@NoteRobot oops. hope u were alone???
    This made me a little sad at first but his sense of humour is refreshing, I hope it wasn’t that important. Actually if the performance for the Fox executives was at Saban Clinic then he didn’t do that bad:

    shallow note: seem that Kris has a new plaid shirt. Like the colors :)

  39. shallow note: seem that Kris has a new plaid shirt. Like the colors :)

    Oh yes!! And, imo, the vest over it works!

  40. I don’t looove the new shirt but I like it, it’s a new one, I’m all for new clothes on Kris. I guess Katy took all his plaid shirts for laundry so she forced him to wear a new one, lol!

  41. “However, in the end we did find out all we needed to know about Kris Allen on idol. And what would that be? He is all about the music!”

    I third that! Because of that, I think he will succeed in the music business!

  42. I love his answers to the funny tweet questions. Really full of LOL moments. So humorous and witty!

    That Lyndsey woman just wld not give up any moment of slipping Adam in every Kris interview that she conducted so far. You can see that she seems to be belittling Kris by asking him about the hype surrounding Adam’s performance. She’s a hardcore Adam fan and pimping him in every interview will not make me change my mind about him. In fact, she makes it worse.

  43. a light country-inflected number, ‘Is It Over.’ 

    …. Country!!?? OIC!!!

    “I found myself getting annoyed during Lyndsey Parker’s comments about ‘You have it easier than Adam’. Just me?”

    I hear ya… I thought her recent Kris interview was good but now… Right after Kris had won she’d written an article where she almost claimed to “pity” Kris for winning AI because he’d have to suffer always being compared to & overshadowed by Adam’s amazingness and now, “You have it easier than…” !!!! SURE! Why not!!! People constantly telling you or implying that “You didn’t deserve it, the other guy did!” is sooo much easier to deal with, RIGHT!!

  44. Now that I’m done with venting!!!
    Whoever said “Kris Allen, is all about the music” & “He believes that everything will work out” – ITA!!! Even in Slezak’s interview, where he talked about believing LLWD will make it’s way back up the charts (which it is) & And how he’s not worried about his albums hitting the Top 10 etc, it’s about making good music.

    What is this man!!? Srsly, I ask you!!

    Everyone goes on about how normal he’s is, but he’s not!!! Constantly being under so much pressure, constantly being compared to … , So much negativity thrown his way, so much crap even about his private life… still he remains so real, so normal ….. He is not normal, he is not real! He anything but ordinary, normal guy!

    I believe it with all my heart that he’ll be sucess, slowly but surely! He may not have rabid fans (except me, apparently) but he does have loyal fans and his kind of music will always attract new listeners (so will his beautiful face ;) & his charming interviews).

  45. He was not my favorite from the beginning but he has shown that he is true singer/songwriter. He has grown on me.

    SOME people were saying he was “boring” yet Kris appears to be just the opposite. He is confident and truly talented. If you follow his tweets he has one of the best personalities. Funny, self-effacing, and humble.

    Those who hate him are, like Kris sang “How could you be so HEARTLESS”, have no soul.

    This guy has been through the mill, the media and the phony Hollywood elite looked past this guy, and even blasted him, for what I do not know, and they couldn’t see what a true talent and humble musician this guy is.

    That is why Hollywood is full up with a bunch of phony kiss a$$es. This guy is the real deal.

    I hope his career soars…if anyone deserves it, after what he has been through, he does.

  46. You know what keeps Kris so grounded – in the interview where he says he has many “bromances” apart from Adam- that’s it. He has many friends who keep it real & having one of them “Cale” with him when he performs is a big plus!!

    We are seeing the true Kris now. I always believed he had a great sense of humour from the little twitcams that were shown on tour – but now that the album is out & he doesn’t have to hide anything – we are seeing the uninhibited Kris!!

    About the lack of hype – I believe amongst those musicians who are similar to Kris [ singer songwriter/musicians] there has been shown a real respect for Kris talent along with an eagerness to work with him . That is “hype” Kris’s style . That is what he craves for – industry respect- not some manufactured media hype !!

    Even Jim & Slezac [ who are Kris’s equivalent of media hype] manage to get the greatest in depth answers from Kris – so yes – I ‘ll add to the chorus – for Kris IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC!!!!

  47. ” She’s a hardcore Adam fan and pimping him in every interview will not make me change my mind about him. In fact, she makes it worse.”

    This is how I feel about Slezac and Jim C. with their fanboying towards Kris..Can’t make me change my mind, but I do wish Kris well, not like the Adam haters out there

    shallow note: seem that Kris has a new plaid shirt. Like the colors

    Oh yes!! And, imo, the vest over it works!

    I’ll start with my shallow. I LOVE vests, and I love Kris Allen in vests – and skinny ties. He should wear them more often.

    I was glad I got to finally see the MTV performance. I’m baffled why people were saying it was off, etc. It sounded great and the audience was really into it. Guys there too bopping along.

    ‘Yes, that’s me. I’m Mr. Bow’ (to the concierges at hotels). Too darn funny.

    Nice to see he gets the love from NewNowNext and AfterElton.

    Was Katy at the AMA’s? I didn’t see any pics of them together, nor any red carpet pics. I did manage to catch the local (LA) ABC red carpet interviews. I was glad they interviewed Kris. They tried to get Adam too but he sort of snubbed them and just waved. Their reaction was, ‘Uh, well I guess he’s too busy for us.’

  50. Was Katy at the AMA’s? I didn’t see any pics of them together, nor any red carpet pics.

    TwigLA, there are lots of pics around of Kris and Katy at the AMA’s. They looked adorable together! Start by looking at MJ’s Red Carpet thread on the side bar. Getty images has lots more, including ones taken with the Urbans (Keith and Nicole Kidman)!

  51. Was Katy at the AMA’s?

    Yes, she was there, wearing a very pretty dress.

    I don’t know what radio station it was, but it made my day.

    I know what you’re saying since I also live in LA. I haven’t heard Kris on the radio – or Adam or Allison. BUT, I have heard Kris at the grocery and gas station I frequent. The real surprise for me was hearing him sing ‘She Works Hard For the Money’ while the show was still going on. The grocery checker and people in line were bopping along with it.

    Now I’ll need to go to Smart & Final up the street and see. Good excuse since Thanksgiving is this week.

    Kris will be on Bonnie Hunt and Ellen today! YAY!

  53. Has anyone posted this yet? It’s Kris in his “wild” snuggie

    http://twitpic.com/qqalh

    Yay for Ellen and Bonnie Hunt today! I love the pics on getty’s of the Allens and the Urbans together. Keith and Nicole are tall and, well, Kris and Katy aren’t. Very cute pics! Everyone looked so good.

  54. ‘  She’s a hardcore Adam fan and pimping him in every interview will not make me change my mind about him. In fact, she makes it worse.’ 

    This is how I feel about Slezac and Jim C. with their fanboying towards Kris..Can’t make me change my mind, but I do wish Kris well, not like the Adam haters out there

    I guess I wasn’t clear in my previous comment. It’s ok if interviewers have their own favorites but they step over the limit by pimping their own favorites in interviews that are supposedly to be about other artistes. Slezak and Jim do not attempt to shove Kris down people’s throats by bringing up Kris in Adam’s or Allison’s interviews and this is what I called professionalism.

  55. I have been thinking about Kris’ personality as a real plus when it comes to sales. Before last year, I was your casual voter on AI. I watched every season of AI, remember voting for Rueben and Jordin, but nothing like the non-stop voting that I did for Kris this year. I think personality is huge. I remember shopping and picking up Elliott’s CD because I thought he was sweet. I bought Cook’s because I liked his voice and he won. I think that there may be a lot of people who aren’t fanatics but who liked Kris a lot on the show. When all those moms and dads go a shopping this holiday season, I think he will pick up sales.

  56. Whoever said that Kris’ humour was evident even during Idol, ITA. I remember for his TOP 8 pre-performance interview with Ryan, he’d talked about their day out on the beach – “This guy was like, hey you’re that guy from Idol…. say Hi! to Adam for me.” deadpan! Had cracked me up!!!

    MTV performance !!!??? What MTV Performance!!???

  57. Glad to see people are still in this thread! I’ve been wondering what Lydnsey said in her write up before the interview that (paraphrasing)”in that moment it was a really great moment for me“… I’m thinking that she was touched that Kris thanked her for being positive about his album. I think he really has won her over… anyone else have a thought about what she was referring to in the quote?

    satisfied mine? maybe his desire to look like mary j blige? haha

    He satisfied his wild side! lol, it was in response to Allison-she has one too! See the second link in her tweet below: (she was responding to Kris’s tweet from a few days ago. Hope this makes sense)

    AllisonIraheta
    RT @KrisAllen: I have to get this to satisfy my wildside http://twitpic.com/pg4xv I’m pretty satisfied http://twitpic.com/qq9y6

  59. I actually think Lyndsey does a great job interviewing Kris, I’m not sure where the negativity is coming from. Yes, she loves Adam but she likes Kris too, and has done her homework on him. They have a good repore which makes for a pretty good Kris interview.

  60. Understated, low key and adorable. How refreshing. He will grow into these AI champ shoes and turn out to be a much better Idol than so many people thought he might be when he won. Kris will do it the old fashioned way… with talent and putting out good music. If he is hard working that will seal the deal (see David Cook).

  61. Regarding KIIS-FM. They play Kelly & Pink because they’re really pop with backing tracks. LLWD might end up on KIIS the way Crush did, but it’s not likely to stick around long there (Crush went away after 3 months). Kris is kind of a soft to medium pop-rock and so he will do well on KBIG. Give KBIG time. They are VERY late to add music – especially new music. LO was added around this time last year, when Cook’s album dropped. TOML was added 6 weeks after most HAC stations over the summer of ’08. The only song KBIG added quickly was CBTM because Cook had two successful singles on KBIG (LO & TOML hit #1 on their yes.com chart position and stayed there for a while). I think Kris will have no problem getting on KBIG now that LLWD is in the top 20 on HAC. They LOVE Idols and even play Elliott.

  62. This is how I feel about Slezac and Jim C. with their fanboying towards Kris..Can’t make me change my mind, but I do wish Kris well, not like the Adam haters out there

    Kris is getting like not much attention from the media except those 2. For Adam it’s the reverse. So I think there is nothing to complain about.

    And nnadinola, there ARE haters on both sides

  63. For some reason I couldn’t edit (to add this to) my last comment:

    Cookcricket, you sure you’ve heard KOL KIIS? If so, that’s a shift for them. Kelly, Pink & Taylor Swift are about as non-rhythmic as they get – I guess I can see Taylor Swift. I have never heard any rock on there so KOL surprises me. They have NEVER played Daughtry or Cook. Or even Nickelback. It’s mostly T.I., Justin Timberlake, Jordin Sparks, Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Usher, etc. They are not mainstream CHR, they’re rhythmic CHR.

    As an example here are KIIS-FM’s Top 20 songs from yes.com:
    http://www.yes.com/#KIIS?chart

    1 David Guetta – Sexy Chick (w/ Akon)
    2 Beyonce – Sweet Dreams
    3 Taylor Swift – You Belong With Me
    4 Jay-Z – Empire State Of Mind (w/ Alicia Keys)
    5 Sean Kingston – Replay
    6 Jason DeRulo – Whatcha Say
    7 Britney Spears – 3
    8 Rihanna – Hard (w/ Young Jeezy)
    9 Kesha – Tick Tock
    10 Jay Sean – Do You Remember (w/ Sean Paul & Lil’ Jon)
    11 Black Eyed Peas – Meet Me Halfway
    12 Keri Hilson – Knock You Down (w/ Ne-Yo & Kanye West)
    13 Lady Gaga – Bad Romance
    14 Drake – Forever (w/ Kanye West, Eminem & Lil Wayne)
    15 Mariah Carey – Obsessed
    16 Lady Gaga – Paparazzi
    17 Shakira – Give It Up To Me (w/ Lil Wayne)
    18 Ya Boy – We Run L.A. (w/ Dr. Hollywood)
    19 Jeremih – Birthday Sex
    20 Jay Sean – Down (w/ Lil Wayne)

    As you can see, when it comes to non-hip hop solo artists, they like the girls but not the boys. No Jason Mraz, no John Mayer, no DMB, and I don’t think you’ll see Kris Allen. Adam Lambert is doing dance music and there’s a good chance he will end up on KIIS-FM and KBIG. We’ll see how his adds & pickups go. Right now, IMO, there’s a lot of confusion over two RCA singles and one movie single. When the dust settles, stations will likely add the newest single because that’s what RCA is requesting for impact.

    This is how I feel about Slezac and Jim C. with their fanboying towards Kris..Can’t make me change my mind, but I do wish Kris well, not like the Adam haters out there

    Kris is getting like not much attention from the media except those 2. For Adam it’s the reverse. So I think there is nothing to complain about.

    ITA.

    We need more Kris news. All this stuff about Adam is depressing.

    Can’t wait for 5:00!!

  65. Kris Allen, he’s all about the MUSIC!
    And I love & respect him for that so effing much. He deserves so much more.

  66. Why wait ‘tii 5:00 Diane Ellen posted a preview of today’s show. IT WILL MAKE YOU SWOON!!!!!

    the last answer

    HL: Are you still in touch with Simon, Paula, Kara, or Ryan?
    KA: Nah, they erase me out of their mind once the show is over so they can think about the next contestants.

    Uhm Kris, I believe that they all try to erase you out of their mind WHILE you were on the show. Complete failure :)

  69. @Seeker:
    I believe it with all my heart that he’ll be sucess, slowly but surely!
    He may not have rabid fans (except me, apparently) but he does
    have loyal fans and his kind of music will always attract new
    listeners (so will his beautiful face & his charming interviews).

    I’m sorry , but you can not claim to be the only rabid fan of Kris. LOL
    I’m becoming more rabid by the minute. I feel all the pains that the media and all the haters inflicted on him, but that’s OK, better me than him.
