Kris Allen Debuts 'Live Like We're Dying' Music Video

Check out American Idol winner Kris Allen‘s debut music video, “Live Like We’re Dying.”

“It was cool because we actually shot it in the desert in L.A. in the middle of nowhere in this junkyard,” Kris, 24, told PopEater. “I’m pulling the big cord through the junkyard…then I plug in the clock and it starts counting down to zero.”

“It was my first video,” Kris shared, “so I was really trying to have a great time.”

Kris‘ self-titled album will be in stores Tuesday, November 17!

I actually love this song,really good song and messege,I think it’s better then Glambert’s,and I’m a fan of Glambert

# 5

Love the song. Love the video. The rest of the songs on his album seem awesome. Can’t wait to buy it on Nov. 17th!! BTW he looks soo hot in the video!

Out of all the season 8′s new singles Adam Lambert’s is the best.. and is a hit!

Love it! Love the chorus, love that special guitar sound, love ALL!!

i love this song and i think the video is appropriate for the song and as an introduction of him as an artist to the world. yeah, he doesn’t get as much media attention as adam (was there seriously any doubt that he would?). but i think this video shows you he’s not trying to be like adam, and that he’s good at what HE does.

and the other songs on his album are awesome and he co-wrote most of it!

Yay Kris! I love it!

Great song, good job Kris!

I love this video and the complete musician who stars in the video. I was afraid Jive would go ‘cheap’, but it looks like they coughed up some bucks for this one. This song is great, but the nine songs that Kris wrote or co-wrote on the album, are even better.

LOVE the video and the song. The video is very artsy and i appreciate it’s not cheesy in any way. Congrats!!!

Love the song, love the lyrics. However, Tim McGraw did it so much better.

at first i did not like this song, but it has grown on me. it reminds me of a mix between david archuleta and daughtry. Nice beat to it as well. hopefully they start promoting kris like all the female american idols. Has anyone ever noticed that all the female winners of ai get heavily promoted (Kelly, Carrie, Jordin) whereas the male winners barely get promoted Ruben, Taylor and David). Just somenhing to think about. because i have yet to hear a Dvid cook song on top 40 radio. or the other three male idols for that matter.

Love the video, especially the last scene. Love the music in the song as well as the message. Kris is a true artist and a great performer! The crowd loved him at the Dolphin’s game. So glad he’s getting so many opportunities to show what he can do. Love him and his music. Can’t wait until the 17th!

Im going to be honest…I think he came off boring in the video, it was uninteresting and I think his singing isnt unique…

plus he is really late to the rodeo, Adam beat him by a mile and will be a bigger success..sorry.

Kris just doesnt have that “IT” factor that Adam has…he doesnt have a niche…he is blah…no spice.

We are in a lady gaga world and if you dont step up your game you will be left in the dust.

I kinda like it..but I agree with Nnnn, I hope this is not the best song in the album

the boybander is actually making better music than Adam. I mean, they are both generic sounding songs but this one is better. I never liked Adam’s Clay Aiken sounding vocals but I thought he was more creative than the boyband voice kris allen.

not evryone has to be lady gaga!!! wat r u a lady gaga zombie?!

love it love it

This song has a bit a bit of The Script-ness to it. And therefore, i love it.

Kris is so cute <3

I think more bands should sound like Kings of Leon, they are really awesome!

If this is the kind of music Kris Allen is going to make, I am happy. I like the musical part/sound of it a lot; funky and just different. I hope he’s found his style and stick to it. It may not be a mega hit, but this style suits him. It kind of stands out. I don’t know what style of music he would come up with but I am pleasantly suprised. I really hope his musicality will pay off.

David Cook was the best contestent; but his CD was a little one dimensional. Daughtry: speechless. Carrie: not flying with this CD; the girl alienated the ‘country” and she’s going to suffer.
