  1. Since I have never had one of my favorites do the Jingle Ball concerts, I’m not quite sure I understand them. They are sponsored by a radio station, but are they aired live? And how does this generate radio play for the Idols who participate?

  2. Kris did an awesome job last night. Loved each and every song, esp. AWM. Fun, fun, fun. Thanks to anyone who brought back video. We Kris fans adore you today.

  3. He sounded great!!! The audience sure seemed to like him. Kris is great live…that is where he shines…you can see how the actual music consumes him. Its nice to see. Its just the music for him. So refreshing.

  4. Man, I love this guy. He’s gotten to be such a good performer. Can’t wait to see him on tour in the spring.

  5. Kris was awesome last night and it was great to see how much the crowd seemed to love him. The boy seriously can’t dance, but he’s so fun to watch throw himself headlong into his music. The air guitar, the kicky foot, he facial expressions… And hey — even Andrew (the lead guitarist) moved around on the stage instead of standing stock still as he has tended to do!

    All talk of sales figures aside, this is why I’m so happy for Kris, because it is clear how much he loves music and performing, and this is what he was meant to do for a living, whether or not he ever becomes a star.

    The concerts are not aired live. The radio station tends to play the participating artists a LOT in the days prior to the actual concert. I know the Sacramento station has been playing LLWD in heavy rotation. I think the idea is to try and get exposure to crowds that might not know much about the artist. For instance, last night Justin Bieber was the closing act and reportedly the crowd was mainly tweens who were there mainly to see that 15-year-old guy. But if they liked Kris, or any of the other artists, maybe they’ll be more inclined to buy their album, or their single.

    Supposedly there was a backstage singalong between Kris and the members of BLG (the act that went on after Kris last night). Would love to see video of that — although it probably doesn’t exist.

  7. He’s having so much fun. I love it! Love the songs too. And the shirt. And his little sway and other moves. He’s hilarious, such fun to see and hear. I haven’t been to a concert in almost 10 years, I might have to go see him tour.

  8. I am a HUGE fan of David Archuleta, and he did quite a few Jingle Balls last year. Not only did he blow people away with his voice, but I do believe it really helped him to gain stage presence and also gave him lots of exposure to those who didn’t watch Idol. We had lots of videos on our fansites, so we kept up with each one he did! LOTS of fun for him AND us! He gained lots of fans from those, including other artists and celebrities. It’s a WIN-WIN situation! We can’t believe how much David has grown since then.

    I love Kris, and though he’s totally different from David, I think Kris will also gain a lot from the Jingle Balls! He’s such a multi-talented and sweet guy!

  9. The boy seriously can’t dance, but he’s so fun to watch throw himself headlong into his music. The air guitar, the kicky foot, he facial expressions’ ¦

    This is what I love about Kris. He really is all about the music.

  10. Kris’s album didn’t do much for me, but wow, he is a great live performer!!! Loved those videos!

  11. Jeez, I’m on a rollercoast with Kris….though the sound is splotchy, I do love these performances! He really comes alive while doing music, and that’s the whole point of why he interests me anyway.

    Does anybody else notice how good he is at getting the crowd singing & clapping? These boys who have that church song-leader experience have some great training in firing up the audience…

  12. “Is It Over” was amazing and Can’t Stay Away, wow, the energy he puts into his performances! Thank you to the people who videotaped and to MJ for posting! I am so glad he is doing these Jingle Ball things, great exposure.

  13. I loved loved loved hearing the crowd singing along with the chorus of LLWD. Can’t even imagine what that must have meant to Kris.

  14. This guy makes me smile. Can’t wait to see him live. Thanks for posting these, MJ.

  15. I think these Balls will really help him. All Idols need to branch out and get new fans and that is what it looks like he is successfully doing! Fans of other performers get to see him, hopefully become new fans, and then maybe share it with their friends. Not to mention, it’s very helpful with radio.

  16. Amazing!! Kris is at his best live. The crowd was really into it too.!!!

  17. Wow! These vids are great. Kris did an awesome job and looked like he was having a blast on that stage. :)

  18. even Andrew (the lead guitarist) moved around on the stage instead of standing stock still as he has tended to do!

    This comment really makes me LOL. Yup, there was also a point when he’s jamming on the guitar with Kris and Cale. The band seems to be getting more and more comfortable together. So happy about the wild audience reaction to their performances. It’s a good start! And on a shallow note, Kris is wearing a new plaid shirt I think.

  19. Just love Kris live, he has so much fun. The crowd response was great!

    April – you rock, girl. Thanks for always keeping us stocked with video!

  20. I do love LLWD, but I hope he gets to do some of the others on big TV shows too, just to get people more interested in the album as well as the single.

    anyone know about when/if he’ll be on Saturday Night Live? You usually get two songs if you’re the featured musical guest.

    Other good news — though I’m never sure I’m reading the chart stuff right, his album appears to be #11 on the Billboard 200:

  21. Thanks Mysan & AprilJoys!! You guys are lifesavers!!!

    Kris was really working the crowd! So much screaming… Eeeexcellent!

    Love the little changes Kris made to “Is It Over”, and OMG loved Andrew, Cale & Kris coming together and jamming at the end of the song, HAWT!!!
    Can’t Stay Away & Alright With Me, these two performances had amazing energy! LLWD, still going strong! I’m still not sick of it!

  22. Whoever said Kris couldn’t whip a crowd up into a frenzy has clearly underestimated him. I loved the energy, and he really got the crowd going with “Alright With Me” and “Can’t Stay Away”. Pretty smart song choices, the “Is It Over” was a pleasant surprise. I thought he would pick something more teen-friendly for the mellow song, something like “The Truth” or “Let It Rain”, but I was glad he picked “Is It Over” – he really had a moment with that song. Love the variations he did on it and he and Cale just seemed to be having a blast singing that song live for the first time.

  23. “Seeker

    Thanks Mysan & AprilJoys!! You guys are lifesavers!!!”

    Welcome…but I just posted the link. We need to thank April. She’s the one who took all those wonderful videos. Thanks, April, for making our day special (for putting smile on our faces) :-)

    Kris really did an AWESOME job. Way to go.

  24. Collette

    That Billboard chart is from last week. Kris’ album will drop down to #31 this week.

  25. kt_cle

    Maybe Kris is going to jam with the president again??? LOL – you saw his twitpic from the other day, right?

    Seriously, though, I don’t think Kris has antyhing scheduled until his concert in Chicago Friday. So either he’s just chilling for a couple of days or he’s got a gig no one knows about.

  26. Kris just tweeted that he’s landed in DC’ ¦ what have I missed? What’s he doing in DC?

    That is a curious tweet?!! Jordin Sparks is performing at the White House tree lighting tomorrow, so I wonder what Kris is up to?? He’s said many times that he’s sneaky…

    Thanks AprilJoys for the videos! Loved Andrew’s little guitar solo in AWM after Kris’ falsetto. That brought a big smile to Kris’ face! Actually he was smiling a lot last night. So good to see him happy making the music that he loves.

  27. I’ll bet he’s performing at the Tree-lighting thingie. That website says the performers “include” which means they always could add people. The Chicago gig isn’t for a few days so there would be no reason for Kris to fly to DC unless he was doing something like this event. YAY! The concert is always on TV, right? I have no doubt the ninjas are on it as we speak.

  28. on crap, girlygirl — thanks for clarifying, tho I hate the tumble from #11 to #33.

    since you’re such a great oracle — do you know what’s up with an SNL appearance? Heard about it weeks ago, can’t verify it anywhere….

  29. Haven’t heard anything for either Kris or Adam about SNL.

    I hope Kris is in D.C. for the tree lighting cerremony. That would be cool! Is Jordin recovered from her appendectomy yet? Maybe he’s replacing her?

  30. @girlygirl Jordin tweeted that she was in DC so she’s definitely going through with the tree-lighting ceremony.

    Kris could be a late addition, which is understandable, since Jordin and Kris are labelmates. Or he could be doing radio promos or whatever, although no one has really tweeted about it.

    His next show is on Friday in Chicago, so not quite sure if this is just a pit stop or what.

  31. Is Jordin recovered from her appendectomy yet? Maybe he’s replacing her?

    Ohhh.. good call. Maybe that’s it. Kind of weird though that the official website isn’t updated.

    ETA: Forgot about Jordin’s tweet that she’s in DC… I’m confused. Will wait for confirmation – maybe from Starr’s expert twitter attempts to get info from peeps-in-the-know :D

  32. Probably another artist in the list cancelled and he’s replacing. Those events are scheduled since a while so i don’t think it’s a last minute addiition

  33. Kris was on fire! … On a shallow note – check out this pic: http://gossipcandy.com/2009/12/unffffffffffffffff/#comments

    Also, who else here loves Chris Torres’ stance with his hip curvaceously jutting out at the side. I adore this dude!
    Kris’ band is just so full of win! They’ve really hit a stride with this performance. Man, even the hot but never bothered Andrew let his hair down!!
    My Vote: “Can’t Stay Away” for the next single! This song is sexy, and Kris is all kinds of hot & sexy singing it. (“Before We Come Undone”, a very close second.)

    Again, thanks April for the videos

  34. My Vote: ‘Can’t Stay Away’  for the next single! This song is sexy, and Kris is all kinds of hot & sexy singing it. (‘ Before We Come Undone’ , a very close second.)

    I agree completely. Kris totally sells that song in his live performances – and I like highlighting a fun sexy song. BWCU is great, but I don’t think it would be as dynamic of a live performance.

  35. Thanks for putting these videos in their own thread MJ!!

    Gee April has really delivered great videos of Kris over the past few months!!Even though the sound on these are not the greatest – the reason is positive- lots of crowd noise & screams!!Such a good vibe !!
    I love that the band are starting to interact more !! Kris’s performance just keeps getting better & better. The passion he has for singing in front of people just exudes out of him here!!

  36. cale just tweeted that he is in DC too!

    calevis24 In washington d.c. Right now…i feel like i’m in a movie where harrison ford is the president…and he fights a lot of people…awesome…

  37. Hello fellow Kris fans. Those four Kris-centric, close-up videos above were taken by me last night. I’m not great with recaps so I hope those videos give you the picture of how epic the night was for Kris. I’m glad April and others have full videos. I was with kids so it was quite impossible for me to record each song in its entirety. Thanks MJ for posting the videos. :)

  38. The concerts are not aired live. The radio station tends to play the participating artists a LOT in the days prior to the actual concert. I know the Sacramento station has been playing LLWD in heavy rotation. I think the idea is to try and get exposure to crowds that might not know much about the artist.

    Ah! Cool! Thanks, girlygirl. The radio play sounds like the biggest pay-off for doing these shows, and since Kris is doing a ton of them, that means lots of spins ahead!

  39. According to Z100’s twitter, Adam will be hosting the Jingle Ball where Kris and so many others are performing. Kradam fans may get some material out of this :D

  40. Thank you happygolucky for those awesome close-up videos! If not for those vid, we won’t be able to tell as much how Kris was expressing his music on his face!! :)

  41. Thanks so much for your videos Happygolucky!!
    Its amazing you were able to get any video!! Was the atmosphere as good live as it sounds on the videos?

  42. love your vids happygolucky! thank you! love the close-up on kris; he’s very expressive so it’s fun to watch while he’s giving it all

  43. Love the videos. Kris looks like he’s having such a great time.

    I’m sure Kris will get to perform on AI once they get to their results shows. He should be on his second or even third single by then.

  44. Thanks so much for your videos Happygolucky!!
    Its amazing you were able to get any video!! Was the atmosphere as good live as it sounds on the videos?

    You are welcome guys. I used an older model Canon Powershot, which could only deliver so-so video quality. Plus, I was hounded by an usher for shooting the vids, and had to be very discreet. But you will get a flavor for the excitement that was resonating in the venue.

    The crowd was made up predominantly of tweeners there to shout for Bieber. They were on their feet during Kris’ set. The crowd definitely loved Kris, which is clear from the audio on the videos I loaded. Kris was incredible on Alright With Me, which will become a crowd favorite, I’m sure, if it can get the radio play it deserves. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns into a hit, and one of the songs his fans anticipate at every concert. I was also completely into Live Like We’re Dying. Sacramento station must have been playing this tune, since the tweens were on their feet and singing along from start to finish.

    The night was perfect. Kris’ set was fantastic, plus my kids were able to land one of Kris’ guitar picks, plus a pick from Boys Like Girls, and even a drum stick from Cobra Starship’s drummer. I know Kris gains a bunch of new fans at every Jingle Ball gig he plays, and he gets the chance to sharpen his performing skills while networking with other artists.

  45. My Vote: ‘Can’t Stay Away’  for the next single! This song is sexy, and Kris is all kinds of hot & sexy singing it. (‘ Before We Come Undone’ , a very close second.)

    Another vote for CSA here! That’s a great song with some nice touches of R&B in it. That would get some serious play. With the right promotion, it might do well with UAC stations. They play Timberlake and Robin Thicke a bit. No reason for Kris not to get in on the blue-eyed soul sweepstakes.

  46. Yes, I also vote for “Can’t Stay Away.” So very addictive. As I watched these vids (thanks happygolucky, so much), the thing I noticed so much was the that I had a big, goofy smile on my face the whole time. He’s just so darn cute, happy, into it, good at what he does. Hope there’s someone at every damn jingle ball there is.

  47. I’ve got no manners. Many thanks to happygolucky for the videos. They were great!

  48. Thanks Happygolucky! I’m all confused because I saw these on ONTD_AI last night and thought April posted them – hers must have been the later full-length vids because I remember she tweeted she was having trouble in her hotel room with the internet. Anyway…..NICE JOB. (I probably thanked you last night, too, already, lol).

    Alright With Me gets my vote for a summer single next year. Perfect happy, good weather tune. I don’t know how long LLWD will keep going, so far no signs of let up. In between single – CSA or BWCU works for me.

  49. Thank you HappyGoLucky for the close up videos. Really shows how Kris gets into his performances!

  50. Is It Over and I Need to Know are my favorite songs on the album, but I don’t think they would be the best singles. I hope the next single is CSA.

    Oh, and Happygolucky, thanks for the videos! They are great!

  51. Thanks Happygolucky for the very clear and up close videos. You can really tell Kris is enjoying performing live. And his sounded great last night.

  53. Thanks for the vids, happygolucky. How great that you were able to be there and bring back a report along with the videos. Thanks to Apriljoys and others who uploaded as well.

    Now I really want to see Kris in concert. The audience really sounded into him. He was fantastic and the band was great. Kris, Cale, and Chris seem to have the most fun playing. Well, maybe just Andrew is on the stiff side. I’m betting they slowly pull him in to loosening up.

  54. Btw, I love the synchronized bouncing of Kris and Cale near the end of Is It Over! So cute!!!

  55. Wonderful videos. Loved them and love smiling Kris. I have to admit CSA and Is It Over are not my favorite songs on the album, but he did a great job with both.
    Loved AWM and how nice with the crowd singing along to LLWD. Ok, and I really love that plaid shirt!

    Kris was only stopping in DC to make a connection to Orlando. He’ll be taping his segment for the Disney Christmas Day Parade. I checked his publicist’s twitter and then the WDW Christmas special taping schedule.

  56. I wonder if there was a short stop off in DC for some PR reason… because Sacramento to Orlando through DC is an odd itinerary… or maybe Kris needs a new travel agent.

    Since both Kris and Cale tweeted from DC, do you think it was a plot to rile up the fans for their entertainment? Best response tweet I saw was something like “how dare you know where you are going before we do!”

  57. Oh, by the way, that’s a big fat no on Kris going to the National tree lighting thing. He’s not even staying in D.C.

    According to Kris’ publicist…

    GinaOrr
    Hey DCers – sorry Kris Allen is only passing thru, changing planes to Orlando.
    about 2 hours ago from web

  58. Great videos. Thanks so much for posting them. I get to see him this Friday in Chicago at the Miracle Near State Street concert. Can’t wait. He was so fantastic in the AI tour. I love his brand of music.

  59. I really love Alright With Me. I hope that one comes out as a single soon.

  60. AWM has been stuck in my head all day.

    P.S. Thank you Kris for having no drama. I am so allergic to drama.

  61. those videos are great! Kris has become a vey good performer! love his energy and how he’s totally into it. “Is it over” was very good; love how he changed some phrasing and lyrics, he made it better :)
    I like how he gets the crowd to participate. They loved him
    first jingle ball = win :)

  62. P.S. Thank you Kris for having no drama. I am so allergic to drama.

    Eileen99, ITA … i just want fun stuff :D

  63. P.S. Thank you Kris for having no drama. I am so allergic to drama.

    Honestly, even with all the talk of Kris’ quote unquote disappointing sales and Adam’s pretty good 200,000 first week take, I like to think Jive is the happier record label right now. At the very least, they’re the more relaxed record label.

  64. Thank you Happygolucky, AprilJoy for the videos, and mj for the thread! Kris is really a fun performer to watch. I love how he gets into the music with his whole body, lol. If he comes close enough to me, I just may have to go see him. So happy the crowd loved him last night, so good to see!

  65. I’m expecting many new fans for him out of those jingle ball. And I just LOVE his cd and know that many more people will also love it

    I’m expecting many new fans for him out of those jingle ball. And I just LOVE his cd and know that many more people will also love it

    I think so too Mtlfan.

  67. He will definately gain new fans. I heard most of the girls were there for Bieber, so I was really shocked to hear all the squeeeing teens in the videos. And we all know Kris doesn’t look ugly either, with those facial expressions he makes when he sings, you can imagine what he does to them.
    I don’t want to think of what he will do to his audience the day he will sing BRING IT BACK, sigh!

  68. “I’m expecting many new fans for him out of those jingle ball. And I just LOVE his cd and know that many more people will also love it.”

    Yep, I agree Mtlfn, and also with sunny about Jive. Album sales have been disappointing (to start with), but I’m sure they’re happy with all these appearances coming up, and a hit single that continues to build and is selling well now. I expect he’ll see some bump with each event, and in fact has moved up with both LLWD and the album on iTunes since last night. Not huge moves, but positive movement. Something fun (for me at least) to watch.

  69. I expect he’ll see some bump with each event, and in fact has moved up with both LLWD and the album on iTunes since last night. Not huge moves, but positive movement. Something fun (for me at least) to watch.

    Eileen99, I’d like to see this on Itunes but i’m on Itunes Canada and if I try to change the itunes country, i got a message that my itune pass (yeah Kris pass) ends end of December and I’m not allowed to do before it ends :(

  70. Eileen99yes i was using the Itunes software. THANKS for the live feed; I wasnt aware of those live feeds. It works fine!

  71. Hey, I’m late to the first jingle ball party, but I gotta say I was loving Kris’s energy while performing!! He is so much fun to watch. I don’t know why some people said he was boring this summer…all the vids I saw showed him rocking the piano bench pretty fiercely, so…whateva. Anyway, I saw some jingle ball vids on YT, but where’s the link for happygolucky’s? My laptop will not let me backtrack on the comments for some reason (GRRRR…).

    Mtlfan, I totally agree that Kris should get lots of new fans from the jingle ball…that Justin kid has 611,000 followers!!! And, for the record, I could be his mom, but if Kris comes to a city near me, I will definitely be there! :grin:

  72. Oh, for the next single… I know AWM has a happy little beat to it, but my vote would be Can’t Stay Away or Before We Come Undone. Initially I wanted CSA, but I feel like BWCU has a cleaner (less organic?) sound. I do hope he goes with one of the latter songs!

    Anyone know why he’s en route to FL? Must be a jingle ball…I need to check the appearances tab. Oh, and I’m a little miffed that Allison gets to do Fallon. Kris is the winner…he should have gotten this gig. :mrgreen:

  73. Diane, rumor has it he’s headed to Orlando to tape his segment for the Walt Disney World Christmas Parade. Cook did the same gig last year.

    ETA: vid of Cook’s performance last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG5vA-6EdKk
    If the rumors are true and Kris does “The Christmas Song,” that will be BOTH my favorite Christmas songs done by BOTH my favorite Idols! Squee!

  74. Diane,

    Happygolucky’s videos are the 4 close-up videos above

    As for the next single i would vote for BWCU (followed closely by CSA!)

  75. Mtlfan, thanks. I’m a little embarrassed, I gotta admit, but I thought there was another link! :oops:

  76. cookbunny
    ETA: vid of Cook’s performance last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG5vA-6EdKk
    If the rumors are true and Kris does ‘The Christmas Song,’  that will be BOTH my favorite Christmas songs done by BOTH my favorite Idols! Squee!

    I had not heard that!!! Man, I’ve missed way too much. I do remember loving DC doing that song last year!

  77. A comment on one of the YT vids of Can’t Stay Away:

    He’s milesï »’ better than he was during the tour! I’m a Cook fan too but I think Kris just surpassed David as a live performer.

    As a former mad Cook fan, I’d say that’s a pretty huge compliment!

  78. Eileen99, I’d like to see this on Itunes but i’m on Itunes Canada and if I try to change the itunes country, i got a message that my itune pass (yeah Kris pass) ends end of December and I’m not allowed to do before it ends

    Mtlfan, this doesn’t make any sense. I can switch between iTunes Canada and US without any problem and I did buy Kris’ iTunes pass (which is no longer available anyway).

  79. Well, I’m very, very late to the party! :D Thank you happygolucky, apriljoys for the vids and for those who posted them! I saw snippets last night, sneaked on here earlier today to watch the full IIO and then watched the rest this evening. I’m thrilled with the crowd’s reaction!

    As far as Jimmy Kimmel Live goes, I was frustrated at first that Kris didn’t get the performance, but I don’t know enough info. as to why. I’m happy Allison’s getting some promo though!

    You know I hope Kris’s sales grow, I’m really think they will the more he gets out there! I also hope Jive realizes what a true gem they have on their label! However, I have decided that whatever happens to Kris I will follow his career! He’s the kind of artist you don’t follow lightly, imo. He’s going to be in this business for a long, long time regardless of how this plays out.

    I also vote for CSA for the next single, followed by AWM in time for summer.

    I love, love IIO but I’m not sure what it would do as a single. But more people need to hear that song, imo! Hee!

    Kris is amazing live! His album is also awesome!

  80. All talk of sales figures aside, this is why I’m so happy for Kris, because it is clear how much he loves music and performing, and this is what he was meant to do for a living, whether or not he ever becomes a star.

    Thank you girlygirl.
    Yes, I have to keep reminding myself that Kris is happy. Definition of a STAR is different for everybody. For me, he is already a star since Idol, and watching all the wonderfull videos from yesterday, more and more people will realize how much of a star he really is.

  81. Thank you for everybody that posted the videos.

    Bad thing is that I really don’t know how I can go to a full time job, come home and watch the videos, read all the comments in this blog, and then after several days go back to watch the same videos to read newer posted comments there. In the meantime, Kris will have more Jingleballs to do, more videos, more comments to read, etc,etc.

    This will never ends. SIGH :)

  82. this doesn’t make any sense. I can switch between iTunes Canada and US without any problem and I did buy Kris’ iTunes pass (which is no longer available anyway).

    remusl, i really don’t know what’s happening! When i try to switch (on the ‘my account’ tag) i get an error msg because of the pass (and it has been downloaded) . Weird that you can and I can’t!

  83. Lastly, FULL version of LLWD with him talking about the band and making fun of Randy’ ¦

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwSbX9PE0NU

    thanks again girlygirl for another link

    Love how he started the song. Funny to see him throwing some pics in the crowd afterward!
    I don’t understand everything he says at the start, but get the ‘for me for you’ lol

  84. forgot to say something I noticed when the thread was up … Kris picture at the top is really awesome.. good pick mj

  85. This certainly feels like a nice fluffy, cozy place to hang out in until the firestorm blows over. Any thoughts on what Kris may have been recording in the middle of the night recently — I’m guessing no to the Bonnie Hunt Christmas Song, which he and Cale could easily have done while they were there. I would also vote no on the Disney parade — David Cook did his accoustically, so why not Kris? Favorite guesses — idol hit the trail you’re done now song. A commercial. a song for a TV show, like Greys Anatomy, they use a ton of music. Any other guesses?

  86. Ahhhhhhhh. Come to where the flavor no drama is. Come to Marlboro Kris country.

    I want to roll around and cuddle in this post, because Kris’s performances were amazing, and he rocked that stage like a boss. And hot damn “Is It Over” was too sexy for words.

  87. MJ, April & happygolucky, you guys rule!!! Thankyou so much for the excellent videos. These vids you guys provide are so essential for my well being.

    “And hot damn ‘Is It Over’  was too sexy for words.” Oh I so completely agree. “Is it over, baby…”, no words can explain the sexiness of this song & Kris.

    The “Yea yea yea yeah” & “knocking on your door” parts of “Alright With Me” are just stuck in my head. What a joyful & ‘lift your spirits’ kinda song. It’s like bright warm sunlight on a cold day, but I’d still go for “Can’t Stay Away” as the next single, I just feel it has a wider appeal. CSA shows Kris’ fun side along with a healthy splash of sexy.

    Also, don’t want to leave out “Written all over my face”, what a fun song!

    P.S. ILU & your curvy sexy stance, Chris Torres!!! GO KRIS ALLEN & BAND!!!

  88. Kris will performing on SYTYCD next week 12/9.

    Yay!

    I’ll add in some Kris stats:

    Billboard #s

    #47 in Hot 100 (41)
    #33 in Pop Songs (38)
    #18 in Adult Pop Songs (18)
    #48 in Christian Songs (44)

    Plus, he’s moved up to 18 on HAC (closed a big gap) and is the second highest gainer in the top 40 on that format.

    Yay, this makes me very happy! I love when my fandoms overlap, lol, and this will be great exposure for Kris. America will see him rock the stage with his band and hopefully think, hey, I need to give this guy another look, and then go check out his album! Well, hopefully, anyway.

  90. Wow! Thanks for the videos. “Is it Over” is HOT live (not that I doubted it would be)! Kris is totally rocking and having a blast and I can’t wait to see him perform live on his own tour.

  91. I vote for Alright With Me as the next single. I just think it’s a standout, unbelievably catchy. I think it could appeal to a lot of people who don’t even know Kris, and put him on the map.

    I’m seeing Kris on Monday. Can’t wait!

  92. P.S. ILU & your curvy sexy stance, Chris Torres!!! GO KRIS ALLEN & BAND!!!

    Yeah, and as much as I love Kris, quite often he looks like he’s still standing at that dang bus stop! (He did a GREAT job on all of these songs though!! Just wish he’d get his swagger–and sexy stance–on!)

    Thank you Kirsten!!

  94. Kris will performing on SYTYCD next week 12/9.

    Wow, I did not expect that one. I thought he’s going to stay in the East Coast for the whole next week. SYTYCD is taped in LA, right ?

    Yeah, Kris. I hope some of the slower songs are going to be featured for the dances. Let It Rain would be perfect.

  95. Yeah, and as much as I love Kris, quite often he looks like he’s still standing at that dang bus stop! (He did a GREAT job on all of these songs though!! Just wish he’d get his swagger’“and sexy stance’“on!)

    It’s nice to remember the other three judges liked Kris’s performance that night and so did Smokey.

    I never agreed with what Simon said about Kris looking like he was waiting at a bus stop. That was a lousy (if typical) thing to say and bore no relation to the truth. I don’t think Kris ever appeared onstage anything less than involved and animated. As for swaggering, I just assumed that was meant to compare him unfavorably to Adam. Since he was the one and only swaggering contestant there.

    I thought Kris looked pretty sexy in these videos, but that’s just me.

  96. de-lurking. just wanted to say thanks for all the videos. kris and the band are definitely coming together… way much better than their first appearances.

    i bought my KA CD just this week, got the 2nd to the last copy on the display stand/shelf/whatever… so happy. :)

    my favorite was “let it rain” before i got the CD. then i told myself “wow, that red guitar is great” after listening to the whole album on the first run… the past two days, i’ve had “is it over” on repeat because i love, love, love the song! how can you explain that? i wonder what will be my next fave? i need to know. :)
