Kris Allen Covers Rihanna, Katy Perry + Lady Gaga in One Song
While Adam Lambert prepares to release his second album, Trespassing out May 15) to great fanfare, Kris Allen (who won Season 8 of ‘American Idol‘ and ALSO has a new album out, Thank You Camellia, out in stores May 22) continues to work hard to stay in the spotlight. Allen performed an awesome acoustic medley of songs by Rihanna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
Allen sang ‘We Found Love,’ ‘Firework’ and ‘Just Dance’ with more earnestness than was ever intended for these dance-pop tracks. As he finished, Allen added a taste of ‘Bad Romance’ after the DJ said he was hoping for that Gaga track instead of ‘Just Dance.’
As noted by Idolator, Allen visited the radio station to promote his new single, ‘The Vision of Love,’ which he sang on ‘Idol’ last month. The song is the first taste of Allen’s second major-label release ‘Thank You Camella,’ which hits stores on May 22, the same day he appears on ‘Live With Kelly.’
‘Thank You Camella’ won’t include Allen’s acoustic pop cover, but it will feature 11 songs Allen had a hand in writing.
