Kris Allen Wins Regis And Kelly Relly Award: Favorite Newbie

The annual Relly Awards, brought to you by the peeps at Live with Regis and Kelly, is pretty silly stuff.   But,   it’s still fun to watch Kris Allen accept his coveted Relly for “Favorite Newbie” in a message taped while he was still touring with American Idols Live…

  1. Who are…

    Jason Segel, Rupert Grint,
    Dierks Bentley?

    Never heard of these guys. I must live under a rock.

  2. Good for Kris! I think LLWD is a tad more important at this part, however….it’s still at #29. Is that where it’s been? Of course, as always, Kris is adorable.

    ETA: NO PLAID SHIRT!!!

  3. OK, Kris has never tripped my trigger because his body type is too close to my ex’s (yikes), but dang, that boy looks GOOD dressed up!

  4. LOL, another weird trophy for Kris to hand to his mom and totally lose track of ;) But yay for Kris, and yay for airtime on a ~nationally syndicated program~ (i see what you did there 19!)

    So this was something you could vote on? Huh, I totally missed it.

  5. Happy for Kris and can’t wait for the album to drop. I know it will be great!

  6. Who are’ ¦

    Jason Segel, Rupert Grint,
    Dierks Bentley?

    Never heard of these guys. I must live under a rock.

    Jason Segel – Actor. He’s one of those guys who frequently works with Judd Apatow. He was in the popular cult hits “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared”. He was also in the movies “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Knocked Up” (well-known movie with Katharine Heigl from Grey’s). Quite well known amongs the 20-somethings (and maybe teenagers too).

    Rupert Grint – plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. Harry Potter is a series of books by JK Rowling that caused children books to get their own category on the NYT Bestseller list because every time she release a new book, they crowded out all the adult books. Each of the 6 movies so far tend to do about $300M in the US and around $1B worldwide. There are two more movies to come out in 2010 and 2011. He was there to promote the Harry Potter movie that came out this summer.

    Dierks Bentley – Country singer with 7 singles that have topped the Country charts. He was probably there to promote his album that came out this year. Interestingly enough, Idol Bucky Covington was one of his opening acts last year.

    Anyway, good for Kris. It’s always fun to win these things (why not?). Plus, they can use it to balance the Idol trophy on his mantlepiece. It will probably be a larger conversation starter.

    Thank you. As soon as I heard the description – I had a head smack moment.

    Ok so I don’t totally live under a rock. Just didn’t put the names to the faces. I’m surprised that I didn’t recognize Rupert name. *eyes rolling* He is a character! I think it was 2 years ago that he bought an ice cream truck. As I understand it, he would drive it to the set daily… complete with ice cream in the back. LOL

    Jason Segel… I know him too! funny guy.

    Country singer…??? no surprise that I didn’t know of him at all.

    Here’s a hint: Wrestlers know this person’s name really really well. And he/she is NOT a low fat breakfast food. Sorry for the secrecy. :) about 2 hours ago
    Prepping for my sneak attack Kris-collabo interview. Can’t wait to chat with this dude. Or is it dudes? Or is it a girl?! Find out tomorrow! about 3 hours ago

  17. Congratulations to Kris! Hopefully he’ll be back on the show to sing something off his new album!

    P.S. Lookin’ real good in that red shirt, kiddo!

  18. Here’s a hint: Wrestlers know this person’s name really really well.

    OK, totally random, but my guess for the Kris-collabo Jim C. is referencing is Mat Kearney.

  19. It is Mat Kearney. Someone at ontd_ai guessed it, and Jim DM’d her to confirm she was right.

  20. i don’t understand what he said at the end….. someone knows?

    and yes, red suits him a lot!!!

  21. i don’t understand what he said at the end’ ¦.. someone knows?

    The last thing he said was:

    “And this is one that’s going to go on the mantle” (as in mantle piece).

  22. Kris fans managed to vote enough? Guess that isn’t unusual is it? We love our Kris Allen. But I would imagine anyone voting is a fan of whom they vote for. Maybe Kris has more fans or more ardent ones.

  23. ah! Thanks Kirsten!

    I would maybe use this in the bathroom as a toilet paper stand.. but that’s just me :)

  24. Wow. Inarticulate as always, and only with a couple of sentences to spit out.

    Mtlfan “I don’t understand what he said at the end’ ¦.. someone knows?”

    Who the f*ck does?

  25. Wow. Inarticulate as always, and only with a couple of sentences to spit out.

    Lol what he was he SUPPOSED to do then? He said thank you and said it perfectly articulately.

  26. josielord, hey! I think everything he said was articulated. English is my 2nd language so I missed out occasionally bits here and there.

  27. Well that was useless, but cute! and hey, good publicity is good publicity. Plus on the shallow side, Kris looks good in that nice SOLID red shirt. He can alternate that with the black tees and make the shallow part of me, very happy.

  28. Very fun and funny. I’m not a fan of Regis & Kelly but they certainly have their loyal following for their morning talk show as well as individual ventures.

    I knew nothing of the voting for this – no surprise since I get most of my Idol related news here and via Slezak and Cantiello. Seems to me R&K’s regular viewers voted for Kris. Grats on that!

    I think the whole concept is poking fun at entertainment awards and award shows. It’s the season for it, so why not? If I won a ‘Golden Stool’ it would be a permanent fixture somewhere in my studio or home.

    Anyway, grats Kris, and you look great in solids.

  29. Josielord

    Kris wasn’t inarticulate — I understood him quite clearly. He said thank you and that the award would be going on the mantle.

    Kris can tend to mumble, but he didn’t do that this time.
