Kris Allen is 23 and a native of Conway, Arkansas. He’s a student at UCA. He received a lot of support from friends and fellow students at UCA who voted for him as much as they could. Their effort paid off as he is through to the top 12. Now, You can find Kris Allen photos all over the internet and his fan clubs are flourishing.
I still can’t believe he chose to sing a Michael Jackson song. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of the kids who watch this show have never heard this song at all. And yet somehow he made it through. Apparently his looks are working for him. Good, because he doesn’t seem to be trying too hard on that side. Yet the guy is so short.
Anyway, Kris Allen secured a seat in the top twelve without having to go through the wild card round. Good for him, let’s hope he makes the best out of it. I guess American Idol always needs at least one cute and fit boy in the top 12.
Searches online are already soaring from people wanting to know if Kris is married??? I checked online and apparently he is and his wife’s name is Katy. Sorry girls.
Watch the video of Kris Allen’s performance singing Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson. Don’t let the still of Kara distract you. It’s from a previous scene.
One thing that I like about American idol and all its contestants is how people all over the internet will come and claim to know contestants personally. Sure, many times it’s probably true but there is always a doubt in the back of my head.
Kris seemed to have picked up some of the Michael Castro fans which is good for him. Remember Jason Castro had a huge and extremely devoted fan base. Assuming the now Kris Allen fans are ex-Jason fans from last season, there is more than hope for him to make it far unless he gives a really awful performance. Lucky guy.
