Kris Allen Covers Britney Spears: Hit Me Baby One More Time!

Kris Allen performs a special concert for Seton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio on Thursday (October 15). The school had won a contest and raised over $5000 for breast cancer research.

The 24-year-old American Idol champ sang his hit single “Live Like We’re Dying” for the first time live and covered a Britney Spears classic, “Hit Me… Baby One More Time.” (Apparently it’s his favorite song to sing in the shower.)

..that’s all he does. stop covering other peoples songs and make your own!

Are you stupid or something? He HAS, he just can’t perform them live until the album’s out. next month And he also performed his single. I love how idiots like to run their mouths without knowing a damn thing.

I can’t stop listening to his Britney cover. Sexy guy!

AMazing.. His voice… So hot!
@Ryo.. some people just don’t want to realize how talented some people are..
“One song that you like to sing in the showew”
He chose the perfect song to amuse this kind of of audience.
And his new Single “Live Like We’re Dying” sounded awesome!
here is the vid if you want to listen:

Love Kris and his spur of the moment performance. This is awesome the way Kris entertained these girls who worked hard to raise money for a good cause. Kris is such a talented hottie :)

is all that this man does is covers? @RYO Think about it, when have u heard an artist, new or old, that waited till an album came out to sing there single? Not one of the American Idols has done this. You want the fans to here the songs so they buy the individual CD singles then buy the album as well.More of a way to make money. HELLO!?!?!?!? If they did do this it would be because his songs aren’t that good and they are afraid they wont sell so they want the fans to buy the album then hear them. it easy to sing a song great, but can u write a good song? Marketing ploy for an untalented songwriter.

That’s an original cover from Travis.

I really admire this young guy and wish him all the best in life.

I LOVE THIS! I want to hear a full version without the girls singing along. Sorry gals! I know you raised money and this for everything but I want to hear him! =)

i have to give him props, he did an amazing job singing this classic he sung it better than if britney tried to “sing” it now. i wish him all the best.

i go to that school and saw him in person! he is so sos os so so hott – better in person

Ughhhhhhhhh. He’s such a ONE TRICK PONY.

HOW ABOUT YOU SINGING YOUR OWN SONGS INSTEAD OF WET ACOUSTIC COVERS OF COVERS FOR ONCE?

His Idols performances were all covers of covers and unlike the other contestants, he NEVER gave credit to the original bands and artists.

THIS IS TRAVIS’S version!

All his studios sound the same, all his performances were the same, all his post performances have been covers and other people’s demos – INCLUDING his album material.

He tries so hard to be ‘original’ and ‘controversial’ when he’s just another boring, generic below average singer Arkansas, grannies, the little girls and teenie boppers like.

“I want to emulate what Elvis and MJ brought to the scene” are you on crack boy lmaaaaaaao.

He pis.sed me off so much that night on Idol he claimed “I wanted to take an original song and make it my own” THEN TOOK ADELE’S EXACT arrangement of Make You Feel My Love. And stood there smirking as the judges praised him for his “originality”!! ARE you freaking kidding me?

This is what is meant by don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He gets away with so much because of his Southern accent, plaid shirts and ‘pretty’ boy face. He is NOT even remotely attractive GAG.

He is balding like a mofo, plucks his brows and has the fugliest hairiest goblin feet I’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing.

Everytime he talks, it’s something about sweating, peeing, farting, EATING KANGAROO (WTFFFFFFF).

He would not bother me as much if people didn’t make 20 dozen excuses up for him like he’s some defenceless innocent puppy?! He is a 24 year old snarky married man !

His interviews are so cringey. When that woman called in and Ryan asked her what she thought of his voice on LLWD & she goes, “his voice sounds sexy”, instead of saying thankyou Kris responded with “eww” & it got so freaking uncomfortable in the studio.

Like the time he tweeted that the old people should be in bed sleeping. Is he that dumb and slow that he does not realize some things you just don’t say?

Idol sucks.

he is a lot more sly than people think he is.

@RYO i think what infamouslycool meant was that Kris’ first single itself is also a cover. The original, “Live Like we’re Dying”, was done by an Irish band called The Script.

you look like beckham,i love you

you look like beckham,i love you

Wow…JF674
Sorry about your life. I have never seen anyone so bitter before.

Anywho…
I love this so much, absolutely perfect song for the occasion and it sure sound like the audience loved it as well. I love when the whole audience tries their hand at the high note and then ends up laughing. Kris Allen just has this ability to make people feel happy (well except for poor JF674…again sorry about your life). I am jealous of those girls – LUCKY! What a great cause to be shedding light on and Kris did it all for free. I see Kris as one of those artist that will get involved in causes and work to better our world, rather than vise versa. It is nice to see someone living their dream, such an inspiration for other to try and live theirs.
For those of you who have not heard it and think Kris only does covers, well you are missing out because Kris has an album he released before Idol and it is amazing, titled “Brand New Shoes”. Some of the most beautiful singing and honest songwriting I have ever heard.
Way to go Kris!

The sound of a thousand fangirls screaming will be the soundtrack of my nightmares tonight

that was cool
love him

i love him ! and if i had the chance 2 buy his a;bum I WILL !! his voice is amazing ! just awesome haters 2 the left

Agreed with Domino. He just covered TRAVIS covering Britney. Completely unoriginal.

wow – you people are bitter – he sang this song when the girls asked him what he likes to singin the shower. and his album isn’t out yet so he isn’t singing the songs from it in public yet.

really, get over your bitterness or just keep it to yourselves and stop trolling anything written positive about the guy simply because you don’t like him

So cute. I’m glad he got to have some fun and I’m sure the girls he was playing for really appreciated it. Wish my high school had stuff like this!

Can’t wait for his album.
