Kris Allen – Ellen Degeneres Show – VIDEO

The Ellen Degeneres Show featuring Kris Allen aired this morning on my TV, and I managed to grab the video. Yay me.

Kris performed “Live Like We’re Dying” before he sat down to chat with Ellen. Kris on his wife Katy = AW!.

Bonus: Kris’s guitarist, Cale Mills is currently in the lead in the 2009 Cosmo Bachelor Wars! Kris makes a plea for Cale from the US Hot Hollywood Party Red Carpet. Check out what Kris has to say about that, also after the jump. via mtv

Kris Allen – Live Like We’re Dying

Kris Allen – Interview

Kris makes a plea for Cale!

  • sunny2

    Thanks for starting a new thread for this MJ. Major, major SWOON. “I didn’t want to try anything else”. I can’t stand it. Just when I thought I couldn’t like him anymore. Katy is one lucky lady.

  • Eileen99

    I think this is the best live performance yet of LLWD. They’re getting really comfortable with it and each other.

    Kris adorable as usual. Sigh. No drama with Kris, love it.

  • calvinshobbes

    great interview and WONDERFUL performance. Well Done Kris Allen!

  • butte009

    All of those Awwwws about Katy were great!

    Such a sweet guy.

    I still haven’t gotten around to listening to his album yet. I should do that now…..

  • seriously

    That was adorable. I think he embarassed himself though. lol

  • smartcookie

    Kris really is Kick Awesome. Which would’ve been an excellent name for his cd, btw. Just kidding! Self-titled is fine by me. And the lack of drama around Kris is also fine by me. He’s like this little bright spot of sunshine on a cloudy day.

  • happygolucky

    I agree, this is the best LLWD live performance yet. Excited to see him next week in Sacramento. I’m also seeing Kelly Clarkson in San Jose on Sunday. Two great Idols – they’re all about the music.

  • auntieaimee

    “Awwwwwww!”

    Ladies love Kris Allen. ;)

    The performance sounded great! Best one so far.

  • druzilla

    Too bad Ellen had to bring up the other guy during the short interview segment.

    Kris is totally adorkable talking about Katy though. He just can’t help it. Yay Kris! Yay Katy!

  • gulfluv

    Aww, i agree that was adorable. Lol on him saying he is losing the battle to be cute and cuddly. Don’t worry, Kris, you are also super cool and sexy.

    I also like his point that Cale doesn’t have to take his shirt off to be sexy, not so on board about the beard, though. Go Cale!

  • Seeker

    “Didn’t want to try anything else.” Awww + LOL!!! Never change Kristopher. I see alotta Tin Hats getting mighty rusty right about now.

    And may I just say, the v neck t-shirt really brought out the pretty in Kris… Swoon indeed. (Now, I shall checkout LLWD performance…)

  • Eileen99

    Happygolucky: Jealous you’re seeing him in Sacramento! I’m seeing Kelly TONIGHT!

  • anovich

    Can’t watch the video at work but now I really want to hear what he says about Katy.

    Love that there is no drama here after the drama everywhere else.

  • mmk28

    Very good performance! Thanks, Ellen. I guess a lot depends on the studio they perform each time but also the band becomes tighter. Keep it up, guys!

    Kris said during a radio interview that with his friends they make fun of Cale about the Cosmo Bachelor thing all the time, so the way he supports him is really funny.
    Also Cale and Jim had a little convo via twitter:
    Jim: Edited together some hilarity for Cale fans. @calevis24 get excited. MTV News will support your Cosmo candidacy on our blog tomorrow. :)
    Cale: Dear @jambajim, tomorrow, with your help, i will lay claim to the bachelor crown…Which means there will be an opening for court jester…
    Jim: @calevis24 Ha! But I’m married. I bet that DQs me from being Cosmo’s Most Eligible Court Jester. Also the fact that I don’t work out. Ever.
    Jim: MTV News + Kris Allen endorse Cale Mills as Cosmo’s Hottest Bachelor. Blog w/ video: http://tinyurl.com/yz25v2y @calevis24 @krisallen
    Good luck, Cale, lol

  • girlygirl

    That was a really sstrong performance of LLWD. The band sounded tight there.

    And Kris is so sweet talking about Katy. If he loses the battle of beign cute and cuddly, well, so what, right? He’s adorable and sweet and sexy all rolled into one.

  • mmk28

  • carolinacharms

    I’ll take “boring” and classy over…the opposite…every day of the week. Thank you very much.

  • mzbet

    Kris and company sounded great! hmmm….no plaid for Kris, but I see Ryland, the drummer. has taken up the slack LOL. Loved the dialog with Ellen. Kris just can’t help himself being a sweet guy.

  • smartcookie

    It’s funny that the best sound is always on the Ellen performances. I wonder what she and her crew are doing right that everybody else screws up.

  • Seeker

    Excellent excellent performance! Kris’ vocals were so smooth. He really got into his performance. He looked so comfortable. The band was amazing!!! All looked energized! (I really like Chris!)
    The Sound was really good at Ellen’s. You can easily discern Kris’ acoutic guitar sound here.

    Plus we got bonus: Cale in pink!Eeeeee :)!

  • snlw

    Just FYI..

    “HDD with about 70% of info in:

    ‘“ 8 KRIS ALLEN 19/JIVE/ZLG 54,131
    KRIS ALLEN”

    I’m getting nervous about Kris’ first week sale number.. Though I know it really doesn’t matter… He is the slow and steady guy.

  • Eileen99

    I looked over on HDD – everybody looks anemic this week except John Mayer and Justin Bieber.

  • mimi

    If he holds on to #8– even if he sells less than 90K, I will feel better.

  • vanjess38

    Frankly speaking, if Kris sells as predicted, Jive will be happy, looking at the numbers of the top sellers! Whew! this is a bad year.

  • http://MJO judes

    Great performance. Ellen obviously has great “sound”people – helps the band & helps get the balance right for us watching the TV!!!

    He was so adorable talking about Katy!! Having an audience of women swooning would make anyone embarrassed!!

    Hope this performance has helped his sales !!

  • tierbee

    He’s so fricking cute. Great performance!

  • TwigLA

    Could Kris possibly get any cuter? The audience ‘awww’s’ were so funny, as was his getting embarrassed by them. You could just feel people melting and the audience response was very positive.

    Kris and the band are getting really tight.

    I did the bachelor wars. It’s a little addictive. Cale is still winning even though his pic only came up twice for me.

    ETA – I wonder when more reports will come in on HDD. Seems most people aren’t lighting any fires.

  • MusicAlltheTime

    Kris and his band sound great here! The best I’ve heard so far.

    LOL, Kris, “I’m not trying to be all cute and cuddly.”

  • Diane

    I loved the look on Kris’s face when the audience found out they were getting his CD! He’s so funny and cute and, yeah, adorable. Only negative is that the interview should have been longer. :lol: I couldn’t watch the band but what I heard sounded very solid and good. Happy, happy!

  • ESW

    Final numbers are in at HDD – Kris sold 84,846 and came in #10 http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi.

    Looks like the one-day predictions are pretty accurate. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of numbers they predict for Adam.

  • TwigLA

    That last 30% reporting almost doubled 50 ¢’s sales. He had been only 11,000 more than Kris before. Whoa!

    I’m disappointed but not surprised that Kris’ final sales aren’t higher for first week. He’s been pushed under the rug as much as possible in the media. He’s still in top 10 and that makes me happy.

    I seriously wonder what happened with the iTunes Pass orders, especially for the many who bought it and never received. Something just doesn’t seem right.

  • JJ123

    He’s so adorable! The song sounded great! I know he’s not starting out with a big bang on the charts but hopefully his CD will sustain a nice steady stay.

  • Sunshinegirl

    Just watched! Loved it! Everything was perfect! I don’t care about the sales. They’re not bad in this day and age and as I’ve said before, fans of non-Idol artists don’t give a rip about weekly sales numbers or chart placement. So why should we?

  • washyourhands

    Speaking of passes, I still haven’t received mine. I tunes says that they have had similar complaints and are working on the issue. Arghhhh.

  • MusicAlltheTime

    Final numbers are in at HDD ‘“ Kris sold 84,846 and came in #10

    Pretty much exactly what was predicted on Wednesday.

  • smartcookie

    Has anybody heard anything more about why Kris was in the studio? I am hoping to hear he got a song onto a movie soundtrack or is doing a special holiday song or a duet. I want something cool and unexpected to happen for Kris right now. Because I am impatient. ;-)

  • KrazeeK120

    Awwww….I heart adorable, drama-free Kris.

    He sounded really great in that performance, too!!!

    I wish radio stations would play LLWD, though. People aren’t likely to pick up a CD if they’ve never heard the song. Obviously, these kinds of shows help but I think that radio airplay is really what would give him a boost.

    The whole CD is pretty awesome…

  • ai_fan

    Awww, cutest interview, what a great guy. He’s so funny and he just makes me smile. The LLWD performance was outstanding.

    The sales are really pretty good. He did better than Leona and One Republic who have both had hit records before. The only Pop Artists above him are Justin Beiber, Nora Jones, and John Mayer (I’m not counting MJ). I’d say that’s great!

  • Starr

    LOLOLOLOL “paid for by Friends of Cale Mills and Fans of Beards” AHAHAHAHAHAHA OMG I think I’m gonna pass out from laughter

    (a new video from the Krim Show is embeded)

  • colette

    I. Still. Love. That. Song. That’s always a good sign, after you’ve heard it 80-gazillion times.

    He was sweet with Ellen. But I am still dubious about her as an Idol judge, rather than an Idol booster…..

  • Mtlfan

    nice interview!! they are one lucky couple! He’s cute when he talks about his relationship with his wife. Arghhh, again Adam; nice handling from him.

    Very good performance; the band is tighter

    haha for Cale advertising…

    I was a bit surprised that he has beaten Leona. I wish that he had a bigger week sales but this is not bad given the fact (like said above) that he has been treated like dirt by a lot of media.

    KrisAllen: Bonnie Hunt is huge in LA! http://twitpic.com/qt749

    He is hilarious. Apparently today was the taping for “The Bonnie Hunt Show” (it will air 11/30) and he sang christmas songs?!!!Yes, I like it. On youtube there is his version of “O Holy Night”. It’s beautiful.

    bnsheetz
    Does a better afternoon than kris allen singing you christmas sonngs even exist? dont really think so
    14 minutes ago from web

  • hoosiermama

    This was full of WIN!! My hubby, who came home early and watched it with me, gave it a thumbs up (he hasn’t cared about Idol since it ended!). I laughed, too, at Kris’ face when they announced the audience was getting cd’s–he’s thinking I need those sales!! Such a great guy–love him (and the album)!

  • cookcricket

    This performance was great as others have said! Good job Kris and band!

    I got tears in my eyes when I saw the picture of Kris hugging Katy after the win. This is one thing I will never forgive idol for (although small), leaving that amazing hug off the NB video after the win. I purchased it for that hug and that was a major fail!

    Anyway, he’s so adorable that was just LOL cute! (the interview).

    Also, love his promotion of Cale, but I’m from cough*Ohio*cough. lol, not that I would vote for this. ;)

  • Starr

    OMG he sang Christmas songs at the Bonnie Hunt show? o_O

  • kt_cle

    Also, love his promotion of Cale, but I’m from cough*Ohio*cough. lol, not that I would vote for this.

    cookcricket I had the same ‘loyalty’ issues… and Kris sort of dissed ohio, didn’t he? But I figure I stand to get more entertainment out of Cale winning than some random guy from Ohio… so I threw a few votes Cale’s way :D

    ETA: after 4 tries, I’ve finally watched the Ellen vids without interruption. sooo cute. What does he say after “I didn’t want to try anything else”? Something about losing, I think, but I can’t make it out over the crowd noise.

  • Starr

    @kt_cle: He didn’t diss Ohio. When did he diss Ohio? All I saw was he said the other guy was from Ohio.

  • kt_cle

    When did he diss Ohio? All I saw was he said the other guy was from Ohio.

    Oh, I was just joking… he was teasing. I haven’t watched it since this morning, but it was an “Arkansas is better than Ohio” thing….

  • cookcricket

    kt_cle: I completely agree, I’d rather see Cale win too. :D

  • Starr

    I guess Cale won! He tweeted about it LOL

  • http://www.myspace.com/revolucj2006 revolucj2006

    Aww that was the sweetest interview! Geeze he’s to adorable for words!

  • SarahP

    kris made his “O” face again during the ellen interview when she said the audience are going home with his album. cute

    and awwww about katy. how sweet is that!

    regarding the performance, have to agree this was best LLWD performance so far and kris sounded really good. the only downside was that they never showed cale. oh well, he has the bachelor award so thats a consolation. heh

    KrisAllen: Bonnie Hunt is huge in LA! http://twitpic.com/qt749

    Is that what Kris is wearing for next Monday ? Oh boy !!
    Hot ! and I’m not talking about the weather in Los Angeles today.

    On a sad news, I still can not download my I-tune pass yet.
    And please bring any Kris news to Kris’ thread. I don’t think I’m going anywhere but to Kris thread. It’s going to be rough. :(

  • Starr

    @Ratna12: That is SO weird. You still have not gotten word from iTunes about it?

  • JosieX

    That was making me laugh that he couldn’t say a word without the audience saying “Awww……”. But he is just so cute. He did a great job on the song too, sounded really good.

  • Nina1

    Nice!!!!!!! Idol debut albums are so much better this year!!! I’m impressed!

  • cookcricket

    And please bring any Kris news to Kris’ thread. I don’t think I’m going anywhere but to Kris thread. It’s going to be rough. :(

    Ratna12, I hear ya’! I thought I was prepared for this, but I’ve been close to tears already several times today. :(

    Nice!!!!!!! Idol debut albums are so much better this year!!! I’m impressed!

    THIS is what makes these low numbers (which are relative really) so frustrating. Jive needs to find out a way to promote what’s on this album to get people listening imo. I just feel like there is such a HUGE shadow over Kris and this album.

    Okay Kris, if for some odd reason you’re lurking here I have not completely given up hope and I’m so so so impressed with your album!!

  • snlw

    “And please bring any Kris news to Kris’ thread. I don’t think I’m going anywhere but to Kris thread. It’s going to be rough.”

    At this point, not all Kris thread is safe.. :( Look at the latest Kris thread.. I got so upset that I actually risk getting banned.. lol But it’s ok even if I get banned, at least I get to say out loud how I feel.

    It sure gonna be rough for the next few days or weeks and that’s exactly why less and less Kris’ fans are online… Like what cookcricket said, there is such a HUGE shadow over Kris and this album. Worse still, the bias media… if only people will give him a fair chance and listen to his album… they will be presently surprised… But Kris, some of us here will always be here for you and I’m waiting for your tour and second album already.. :)

    Guess what ? FINALLY, yes, I got the E-mail from I-tunes this morning. So I just downloaded the album. I’m happy now.
    Thank you Starr, if I did not see your post, I wouldn’t check . This past couple days, I ignored I-tunes, I was so mad.

    It is just weird that almost ALL the media are just like SHEEPS. Nobody seems to have a mind of their own. It’s like they want to show who can praise / overpraise their chosen one more than the other outlet (OK my grammar is really bad, but I think you know what I mean). Kris just doesn’t get a chance. They are sticking with the script that Kris is supposed to be #2 and that’s it.

    This Thanksgiving, among other things, I’m thankfull for being introduced to Kris Allen. :)

  • cmc25

    To: Mr. Kris Allen

    I am not a fan of any idol but I love good music. You impressed me and my family during the AI contest when you sang Once from the movie Falling Slowly. It’s a slower song, simple guitar background but your voice came out strong and so good that we thought your version was better. Hope your next album will have this type of rendition. We need to hear more of that unique haunting voice.

    You are a good singer but the tracks in your album are not that interesting and do not IMHO showcase the quality of your voice. Hope you take this criticism with an open mind because we would like to see you successful.

    I bought your CD including A. Lambert and Subo.

    Try listensing to Subo’s songs. The instruments blended with her voice so nicely that it never overpowered her during soft and louder passages. Excellent reproduction indeed. She has a story but her voice plus excellent recording/mixing made me buy her CD.

    Thanks for reading and more power to you sir.
