  1. I love Kris’s personality and his voice – listened to his album continuously yesterday:)

  2. Pure gold! That made my week. If only The Krim Show was on five times a week instead of The View. You’re awesome, Jim!

    And now I know why one of Jim’s interview clips last week started with Kris slumped over on the chair — the Perez Hilton thing. :)

  3. Kris’ choice of some special/superhero ability!LOL!Kris!!! How are u real!!!???

    Also, “Oh Jim”… that was kinda hot, (not in a /fic way) just the way Kris said it, it was hot!

    Did anyone make out Kris’ fav cake flavour?

    And I know this may not be popular consensus but I love Kris’ ‘Luke Danes’ green jacket.

  4. Did anyone make out Kris’ fav cake flavour?

    He said Vanilla. :)

  5. Kris is sooooo effin’ funny when he feels comfortable with people. And he and Jim are high-larious together.

  6. LOLOLOLOOL “Perez Hilton?” “NO! NO!” Hahahahahahaha OMG I Love them. I love Kris rolling around in laughter after that. Oh, man. This is GOLD.

  7. Honestly, it doesn’t matter how much kris’ album sale is (as long as the number is more than 3), what does matter to me is there should be at least a KRIM show every week and also most importantly, Kris gets to keep making music!!!

  8. Ha. That was pretty hilarious. Especially Jim’s reaction to the Perez suggestion.

  9. More from the headline thread thanks to girlygirl:

  10. I think this is about the 5th time I’ve watched this and I laugh every time. I’d LOVE a Krim show. They are so natural with each other and flat out funny.
    The View with Dudes is a win! Jump on it MTV.

    I think only Kris would come up with such an off the wall super hero power.

  11. katyallen: Look what @allen_kimberly found to go along with dinner!!!! http://twitpic.com/r3b2e

    That’s reeeeally cute! I hope we have drunk-tweets from Kris.

    OMG, is that not the cutest thing?

    Dull and boring? Not in this lifetime!

    I know, right?

  13. This is such a great analysis and was a comment from the Top Idol site so I thought I would bring it over here for you Kris’ fans.

    OMG. I’ll go buy a few more copies of the album and give it to my relatives this Xmas (I don’t care if they tease me) for you guys.

    I agree, this kid (and his adorable wife) could have been the greatest holiday story ever told, he could have been outselling SuBo right now. But you can’t change history. If you needed further proof, here you have it: idol guys are idiots.

    Season 8 was about Adam Lambert and Adam Lambert only; the greatest singer of all times. There was also Danny Gokey, who will try manipulate the religious vote to beat him and 11 other kids who are not Adam Lambert. The tour was about Adam Lambert, 11 kids who are not Adam Lambert and the jerk that beat him. 50 states. That was the story told. That is like Titanic. No one can turn that ship around.

    Watching history is a bit like riding in the trunk of a truck. You can only see where you’ve been but you can’t see where you’re going. So, I’ll speculate. I doubt, Simon Fuller & Co. are satisfied with this result. Lambert should have been wiping the floor with SuBo considering the investment they’ve made in him; one whole season of a very popular reality show+one whole tour of a very popular show+the record producing and promoting costs. Some folk might believe that ‘the press just loooooves him’ , I’m not that naive. Some things the press printed were almost like press releases. Makes you wonder. You know? They planned to launch him like they would’ve launched MJ. And what did they gain?

    Some might argue that they’ve already spent the money they’ve spent, so they might be willing to throw some good money after the bad to recoup. But I’ll stick by my opinion that they will try to cut their losses and run because to me it does not make any business sense at all.

    The other kid, your kid, on the other hand will be OK, he is not going to be a superstar but he will be OK. They did not spend a penny to promote him during or after the show, if anything they spent ‘him’ to promote Lambert and after the show they spent maybe the optimal $$ for his record production. He is a lot more cost effective. He just happened to stumble into their hands. He writes his own stuff, he picked a musical style that is not that dependent on looks (which he has) or age, he has a lot of fans, he is really making an impact on the radio, his single is holiday season friendly so I think it will increase spins during the holidays, his whole album is radio friendly, he will probably tour college campuses and small venues which are very cheap to tour, he has a ready audience that he only needs to reach’ ¦ etc. Idol folk are stupid but business people are usually smarter.

    Maybe I’m being stubborn but until the truck stops I am not going to decide where we arrived.

    (This Idol thing is my early morning guilty pleasure so I’m usually the last to comment. That is why I usually comment on the whole argument rather than my own point of view on the original topic because when I finally wake up and read it there is usually nothing left to say. And I know this post is tl;dr especially for thanksgiving.)

  14. Jim & Kris play off each other which to me is very endearing & refreshing honestly!! I think we all need a bit of humour after all the angst in some other threads!!
    Yes thank you MJ for allowing us this space!!

  15. The guy has a great personalty…who knew. No wonder the majority of the previous idols like him. He has a great personalty.

  16. Season 8 was about Adam Lambert and Adam Lambert only; the greatest singer of all times. There was also Danny Gokey, who will try manipulate the religious vote to beat him and 11 other kids who are not Adam Lambert. The tour was about Adam Lambert, 11 kids who are not Adam Lambert and the jerk that beat him. 50 states. That was the story told. That is like Titanic. No one can turn that ship around.

    I agree with this 100 percent. I believe Adam Lambert was a plant from the begining. The people who interview the contestants early on had to know because they ask what they have done. They put a pro in the midst of regular people.

    Next season, to match Lambert they are going to have to place SEVERAL plants to keep the sheep involved in the show. It is not about getting regular people to win anymore. It’s about the big money Idol gets from the sheep who watch the show, and the sheep get bored really easy if they are not titillated with professionals like Lambert. There are regular people who ‘get’ the premise of Idol, but sadly there are more sheep than those who ‘get’ the original idea of Idol.

    So watch for MORE Lambert types next season.

  17. I agree, this kid (and his adorable wife) could have been the greatest holiday story ever told, he could have been outselling SuBo right now. But you can’t change history. If you needed further proof, here you have it: idol guys are idiots.

    I don’t understand a lot of that Top Idol analysis but I sort of agree with this part. I don’t know about outselling SuBo, but I always thought the media would have found the fact that Kris won Idol against some big odds a pretty interesting story. Instead they seemed to be incapable of believing that his win was possible without some kind of hitch. Voting issues, homophobia, whatever. It was a great triumph and was really never treated as such by the media. Instead there seemed to be a lot of petty attacks and complaints against him that continue to this day. Instead of “How amazing that he did that,” it was more like “How dare he do that?” I never understood it. It’s as if you’re not supposed to go against the Idol powers that be, or prove Simon Cowell wrong.

    Oh ross, thanks for typing out loud my thoughts… If this outcome — the underdog won — was a superbowl event or any other national sport events, Kris would be treated like a huge Hero. But instead he got the exact opposite treatment for winning… That’s what made me sad and become an invested fan of his… and of course I love his music too.

  19. Oh forgot to add that Kris should really consider co-hosting a Krim show on MTV as a side-job. Krim show is full of win!

    This.

    I was not even a fan of Kris’s. But I saw it in the finale. Here is this ONE guy, who was not pimped from the beginning, who came out from nowhere and beat the MONSTER that 19E and Idol had been promoting for months…and still are.

    No one gave him a chance in hades to beat the MONSTER that the media and 19E had created over the few months.

    Kris Allen is like a David and Goliath story.

    Adam fans also had sites on how to cheat, every Idol in the top 5 did. The media focuses on that, but they never focused on that fact in previous seasons which has been happenings for years.

    The media just fell for the story hook, line and sinker, not the fact that he beat out the biggest odds against him.

  21. Well I could have done without TopIdol’s predictable backhanded Adam slams (yaawwnnn) in her piece and saying some good things about Kris. Just like I get peeved at those who are saying something valid and nice about Adam and then feel incumbent to insult Kris as part of it. But again, I would expect no less considering the source.

    All that aside, I find the idea that she really knows about how people outside the bubble would resond to Kris to be laughable on the face of it. She calls herself TopIdol and has watched it for years. Now she can claim to hate the show all she wants, but she’s devoted huge amounts of time to it for years, so yeah whatever there as well.

    All of that being said and despite the source, I do agree with the idea that Kris is a funny guy and I enjoy the times like this HIGH-larioius stuff with Jim Cantiello where we get to see it. Long live Krim! But I will say that the idea of putting Kris on all these things like SNL or whatever and he’ll just kick at them, is also flawed. I think Kris is getting much more comfortable with interviewing and yes, better at it. And ones like this with Jim are excellent! Love them. But the reason why this Krim stuff is so good is not just time of the interview, but time, I feel, that Kris seems to need to feel comfortable with people enough for his funny side to show through. And that’s just not something that would happen if he was put on something like SNL. Besides which his acting seems to be non-existent. Not just his pre-Idol stuff, but his adorable lack of acting face since then.

    Oh well, and in the meantime I’ll enjoy the stuff that Kris is doing that do showcase what a nice, funny guy he really is.

  22. tinydance “The media just fell for the story hook, line and sinker, not the fact that he beat out the biggest odds against him.”

    This is why I hope and dream that someday Kris will be very successful just so I can see the reaction out of those same nusty/biased media…

    I guess you would have to include almost EVERY major Idol site that is dedicated to American Idol, because the majority see it about the same.

  24. You know if Kris had won idol in Australia – I feel the media would have got behind him as we love a rags to riches story .[ Our latest winner Stan is such a story] We also had a contestant very similar to Adam who had been in the Lion King- but he was criticised for being too musical theatre & so didn’t get very far as the public were put off him!!
    [ Just the opposite of what happened to Adam by the judges on AI in the US!!]
    Maybe in a few years when the dust has settled, Kris’s win will be more lauded & appreciated for the hard task he had every week to get through . I also think there has been a lack of appreciation of the fans by the media ,who stood by Kris week in & week out in the early stages – when there was no backlash voting !! These fans were the ones that allowed Kris to get through to the later rounds!!

  25. Thank you mmk28 for that awesome USA Weekend link! Reading that article once again made me want to be apart of his family so bad… What a nice, sweet, warm and close family he has…

    Btw, I’ve entered to win his autographed guitar. I’ve never entered to win anything for a million years but I’ll try for this one. :)

  26. Btw, Is Kris gonna be on USA Weekend cover??!!

    Below a pic that looks like the cover, it said USA Weekend Cover Story: American Idol Kris Allen shares his favorite holiday memories! Nice pic of Kris too on that cover with his guitar!

  27. I guess you would have to include almost EVERY major Idol site that is dedicated to American Idol, because the majority see it about the same.

    Really? the majority of sites hate Adam too? Good to know. I thought it was pretty evenly distributed myself, but if you say the majority of sites feel the way TopIdol does, who am I to dispute your knowledge of what the majority of the internet might be about this.

    Meanwhile my point remains that TopIdol does lots of backhanded stuff against Adam, this piece contains it and links to previous ones about it, so I’m considering the particular source here in what she says in her piece, not the rest of what the rest of the internet says or thinks about Adam or Kris. And I still don’t personally enjoy the backhands against Kris I see when saying something nice about Adam (like in a recent CNN OpEd about Adam that had me until the last line snarking on Kris) don’t like this particular piece about Kris. I find it annoying and unnecessary, that’s it. But that’s just me.

  28. … _____ does lots of backhanded stuff against Adam.

    You can type Brain Mansfield articles, Rickey.org, Entertianment Weekly Slezak’s articles, MTV’s Jim’s segments, and VFTW in that blank spot. I have seen the same comment said on all of these sites regarding stories about Adam.

    So you can’t say that Top Idol is the only place if many other Idol sites the Glamberts complain about the same thing.

  29. You can type Brain Mansfield articles, Rickey.org, Entertianment Weekly Slezak’s articles, MTV’s Jim’s segments, and VFTW in that blank spot. I have seen the same comment said on all of these sites regarding stories about Adam.

    What are you even saying? Are you saying all those people dislike Adam? Because I don’t think that Jim and Slezak do, though they prefer Kris and Allison. I think Brian is okay with some stuff Adam does, less so than others, but it’s not backhanded when he doesn’t agree with what Adam does, same as Jim and Slezak. I could not find it within any particle of my being to care less what Rickey/VTFW think about anything…ever. But not seeing a majority there.

    Not that it matters in any way shape or form to my point this person specifically who has established themselves as someone who gives backhanded crap to Adam and feels the need to once again do so, while in the course of a nice piece about Kris, is annoying to me in this particular piece by feeling the need to do so (again). And that’s something I feel generally for Kris as well as generally for Adam. I know that I’ve seen Kris fans get, to my mind rightly, peeved when someone talks trash about Kris to prop up Adam. It’s not necessary all the way around for me. You feel differently? Cool beans. Of course that’s your prerogative.

  30. ^^^ what I am saying is that many Adam fans complain at those other places about the same treatment of Adam. They write the same thing…duh.

    I just went over to read a Slezak article and there were people complaining that he favors Kris over Adam. So I was responding that if they ever reads some of those others sites you would see the same exact complaint. It is not exclusive to Top Idol.

  31. Just for once, I’d like to read an article about ONE person without having it being deflected into a fanatical discussion for ANOTHER person. It’s past it’s expiration date.

    Someone mentioned above that Kris fans (and fans of other artists) are being repelled from mj’s blog and I’m becoming one of them. It’s a shame since mj provides a one stop spot for Idol related news as well as for other guilty pleasures.

  32. Jim: She already invited me to Arkansas.
    Kris: I saw that! Mom, settle down.

    ————

    I love how Jim equates Kris not getting the Idol trophy to losing his tie.

    K: I don’t even have the American Idol trophy.
    J: Did Gokey take it?
    K: (laughs) Did Gokey take it??
    J: Yeah, what do you mean you don’t have the–did they take it back? Where did it go?
    K: I don’t know what happened to it, man.
    J: You really don’t know?
    K: I think it might still be at, like, CBS studios, or something.
    J: Yeah…
    K: With my name on it.
    J: …That’s like my tie, I got a tie for my birthday, karaoke party, and I totally lost my tie.
    K: You got drunk, didn’t you?
    J: (groans)
    K: (laughs)
    J: For once I didn’t tweet you! It’s a big step! I didn’t drunk tweet Kris Allen. On Friday. I don’t think, at least. Although Michael Slezak did. We won’t go there.

    So random! Hilarious.

    “You know if Kris had won idol in Australia ‘“ I feel the media would have got behind him as we love a rags to riches story .[ Our latest winner Stan is such a story]”

    I love it that Stan Walker won the Australian Idol. I’ve been following all his performances on YT. He is young and not ugly to look at either.

    Like Kris, he is given a great opprtunity to make music and hopefully both young men will succeed.

    As a Kris fan I come here and read whatever I want and just ignore the ones I don’t like. Mostly I come here to see what new videos / interviews of Kris are out there and new TV appearances that I might not have known .

    Thanks MJ. And please keep up having Kris threads. He has fans out there, even if we are a small minority here.

  36. Was any part of that the actual interview? It was kinda lame, and I couldn’t really understand Kris half the time…he needs an interview coach like the pageant people have. I am enjoying his CD, though, and I suppose that is really what it’s all about…

    The video above is composed of outtakes from the actual interview Kris did with Cantiello. The in-depth interview of Kris’s CD is over at MTV.com.

  38. “Thanks MJ. And please keep up having Kris threads. He has fans out there, even if we are a small minority here.”

    I am sure there are a lot more than a minority of Kris fans that lurk here, its just they are reluctant to post . You have to be thick skinned on here & not worry about others comments too much & don’t take things too seriously!!
