Kris Allen Predicted Less than 100K First Week Sales

UPDATE: Hits has revised their original prediction up to 85-90k

Industry mag, Hits Daily Double one-day sales predictions are in, and the news ain’t great for Kris Allen, who is predicted to sell between 75-80K his first week out.

Those numbers would make him the Idol winner with the lowest first week sells, taking the crown away from Jordin Sparks, who sold 119K her first week.

Here’s how the week will shake out, according to HHD

John Mayer – 275k-300k
Norah Jones – 150k-160k
50 Cent – 140k-150k
Casting Crowns – 140k-150k
Andrea Bocelli – 140k-150k
Justin Bieber – 110k-120k

Leona Lewis – 60-65k

Note Simon Cowell’s X Factor protege, Leona Lewis isn’t exactly busting up the charts either…
