Kris Allen Yahoo Interview: Set to Perform “Hey Jude” on Tour – VIDEO

Check out the two-part Kris Allen interview with Lyndsay Parker of Yahoo music. In Part 1, they discuss Kris’s remarkable Idol run and dark horse win, and in Part 2, it’s all about the music.

Kris lets a song spoiler out of the bag–he’ll be performing The Beatles’ “Hey Jude”, with the rest of the Idols joining in on the chorus… He wanted to do it on the show, but couldn’t get it cleared. He wanted to do “Falling Slowly” but…for reasons he doesn’t go into, he couldn’t.

He says his album–it’ll have a pop/rock feel–will be “kinda what I did on the show, but with more of an edge to it.” He wants to make good, heartfelt music. He’s going to have a strong hand in the songwriting–he says he does not want to sing anything he doesn’t feel.

Videos after the JUMP…
