Kris Allen Rocks Vegas For The First Time

Kris Allen Rocks Vegas For The First Time

American Idol winner Kris Allen makes a special appearance at B.B. King’s Blues Club at the Mirage Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (December 30).

This is the first time the 24-year-old singer hit the Las Vegas strip.

“I’ve never been to Las Vegas before, man,” Kris told the Las Vegas Sun. “What a time to come, right? New Year’s Eve!”

As for Kris’ New Years resolution?

“Hmmm … focus more on music. I’m not really a New Year’s resolution kind of guy.”

15+ pictures inside of Kris Allen performing in Las Vegas for the first time…

  • WEEE FINALLY THE WINNNER

    SO THIS IS THE FIRST GIG THAT THE ACTUAL WINNER OF AMERICAN IDOL DID..

    OR IS IT ADAM LAMBERT WHO ACTUALLY WON BECAUSE ON THAT SHOW THE RUNNER UP IS THE ACTUAL WINNER..!!
    HOW MANY PERFORMANCES HAS KRIS ALLEN GOT SINCE HE
    WON.. HMMM NOT AS MANY AS THE RUNNER UP ..!!!

    WONDER WHY ADAM AND KRIS ARE NOT TOGETHER SINCE
    IT WAS A TIE AND ADAM GOT THE BETTER DEAL..

  • DS

    READ WELL BEFORE YOU COMMENT YOU IDIOT !!! IT’S AMAZING HOW SILLY YOU PPL ARE .. UR STILL NOT OVER THE FACT WHO WON AND WHO DIDNT … !!! WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MAKE .. ??!! U CAN STILL HEAR ADAM SING .. SO GET OVER IT ..

  • http://kennowen.blogspot.com/ ganymede30324

    Kris is so CUTE! He also doesn’t seem to have changed much since winning…which is a good thing.

  • SarahB

    Yay, thank you for posting on Kris, Jared! He looked and sounded so amazing. He’s a great guy.

    #1 You are an idiot. This is not his first gig.

  • Fyn

    Kris who?
    Did I miss something?

  • http://deleted Tammy

    He performed at MSG (Adam didn’t) and oh he performed on LIVE TV last night…where was Adam douchebag…

  • Paulie

    Who?

  • Shannon

    OMG, thanks for posting! Kris is so cute and so sweet. He did awesome here and last night. He is the cutest thing ever. <3

  • DS

    @Fyn:

    yea u did .. but i guess i cant blame u .. u were asleep or sth like that ..

  • denise

    Thought he was awful! Saw him on Fox performing, his songs have no beat, are beyond bland. People in the audience weren’t even moving, let alone clapping. ADAM ROCKS!

  • Kerry

    Kris Allen is everywhere and rightfully so. I saw Kris Allen at the Jingle Ball concert series and he was GREAT as usual. Kris sings really good in person and doesn’t need auto phone like others. Kris Allen is original and plays his own musical instruments unlike Adam who just blows. I wish the Galmberts would just get over the fact KRIS ALLEN IS THE WINNER by the AMERICAN VOTE. Sorry sparkle cows, madam drag queen is an oddity and the loser in the record books. Waaaakkkk

  • K

    love kris allen! he was so amazing last night during his performance!

  • Dane

    Kris Allen is amazing! Love that he is as good or even better live than recorded. He loves performing and it shows in his performances. His songs are amazing and so easy to relate to your own life. I hate all of the hate on post like this….but I dont think it matters. Kris is amazing and will be around making and performing music for a very long time. He is creative.

  • michaela

    An all-around good guy. Best of everything to him and his family.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    who is he?

  • Jamie

    LOL Kris has had around 20 or 25 performances in the past 2 months, and there’s video proof from all of them. Adam’s had maybe a handful. Try harder next time, okay?

  • Shannon

    He won American Idol for those that feel the need to keep asking.

    And, yes, he has been everywhere here lately and deserves nothing but the best. He’s had nothing but nice things to say about Adam, but Adam’s fans continue to spew their hate, for what?

  • Ashley

    A monkey.

  • Fyn

    To Shannon, # 17.
    I was and continue to be an Adam fan. He should have won American Idol because he has what it takes to be an entertainer.
    Kris is simply too bland and unexciting. His voice is ok, but just ok, and his choice of music is quite uninspiring as well.
    Apparently America agrees with me, because his CD release was completely overshadowed by Adam’s debut CD.

  • RATM

    Adam fan here. I have a feeling that Kris’ next single is gonna be Can’t Stay Away, nice song to sing along. I’m not gonna be a bias because I like some Kris songs on his album and he’s a nice guy. Not all Adam’s fans are like those idiots above.

  • Kerry Kolsch

    @ Kerry You have my name but you do not have my taste in music. People like you are the reason I wrote my soon to be released book about
    how Kris “won”. Kris is is the Arkansas “Chick fil a Idol”. America has better taste then Kris. My research proves once and for all who the real winner is. The lies and cheating will all be exposed.

  • http://justjared deke

    Adam Lambert is a nice person. He likes and supports Kris Allen. He would NOT like people dissing Kris in any way.

  • Sarah

    Kerry, get a grip. Writing a book? Please. Everyone knows these reality shows aren’t exactly what they say and all the Arkansas stuff has already been discussed to death. Kris simply tried out for the show and won. He didn’t ask to win and even said himself that Adam deserved to win. He wasn’t the judges favorite and had a lot against him.

    Despite that Kris has worked hard and his music is inspiring and at least he can sing unlike most artists out there. He puts his heart and soul into what he does. What happened an AI does not matter anymore. They are both doing well. People need to leave it in the past and get over it. Losing has not hurt Adam in any way, so let it go. You do not speak for everyone in America’s tastes.

  • RATM

    @Kerry: Cool keep hating. All you Adam haters are always saying the same thing “go away sparkle cows” or “go worship your drag queen elsewhere”. You’ll swallowed your words painfully. And also you should shut up about record books. It’s a shame because Adam and Kris are good friends and people like you and some stupid Glamberts are making the rest of both fanbases look bad.

    Great smile and new song

  • Julie

    @WEEE FINALLY THE WINNNER:

    Um, Kris has actually done DOZENS of shows since the American Idol tour ended. He has done Letterman, Conan, GMA , Ellen and the Bonnie Hunt Show, and also appeared at multiple JingleBall concerts all over the country, including the Z-100 JingleBall at Madison Square Garden in mid-December and concerts in Chicago ,Sacramento and Orlando where he was on the bill with The Fray.

    In fact, he has had far more live concert appearances than Adam since the AI tour ended in September.

    But please, don’t let actual facts get in the way of your attempt to insult Kris (whose single LLWD is about to go gold – by the way).

  • http://gamerdatingsite.com gamerdatingsite

    I hope he gets to touch adam and molest him

  • jacob

    I don’t know what the hell you (1st poster) are talking about. Adam Lambert has had NO concert performances since he lost American Idol, other than theAI tour and that NYE gig he had last night.

    Kris has had NUMEROUS Jingle Balls and Christmas concerts, Live gigs sponsored by radio stations, etc. I saw one of these shows and he was awesome.

  • g123

    I saw kris allen “live” a month ago in Worcester, Mass. He and his band played their part of the concert seated on stools (except for the drummer) and they played seven songs and they were amazing. The audience loved them. In addition ot his own songs, Kris sang The Christmas Song and it was beautiful. Kris was also very witty. I loved every second and would see him again any time. One of the best shows I have been to.

    Remember, every now and then what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. Just ask Tiger!

  • LeMarie

    You can’t take Kerry Kolsch seriously, she is an ambulance chasing lawyer who is trying to profit from all the fabrication made up by the “sparkle cows” bitterberts. Google her! you can read for yourself.

  • =)=)=)

    the best ! hes sooo cute wish him the best ! and he is def better than adam

  • Billboard loves Kris

    Billboard Charts Love Kris Allen since hes been on the top 100 since his debut. If he was so awful as you glamberts write and write, why is Kris Allen on the Billboard charts? Where is madam? Where was madam in Vegas, no where on prime time tv, Why? Did you ever ask why madam screams every song and now shes crying What do you want from me America. Duh, stop screaming like some banchie who is desperate. Kris Allen does what is expected of him and Vegas, Kimmel, Bonnie Hunt, Disney, Conan, Leno, Jingle ball, Billboard Vegas New Year Prime time, Kris must be doing something right in my books as in billboards charts. You Lame berts should retire from your hate and tune into the new Idol series where Madam drag queen will be forgotten. Later Hags oh I mean Sparkle Cows.

  • http://nursefriends.com nursefriends

    He is way better than Adam

  • Sara

    Love Kris!!! <3

  • Star

    @Tammy: don’t be mean, all you Kris fans are so negative and mean, name calling like a 2 yr.old. sorry for you,

  • Proud Sparkler

    @Kerry: wow you put Adam fans down and talk like this?? it is so sad that kris fans cannot be gracious and happy but still put down Adam and his fans and act all threatend and mean , you can keep your Idol and your mean disgusting attitudes and persons all together, you can never understand or be anything more here as you prove by what you write. Take a page from Adams book and be positive, you use him a scapegoat for all your anger and your hatred , a trend I see in so many Kris fans, if being a Kris fan inspires this dark bad attitude I am glad I am not a fan of his.

  • Meg

    @Shannon: uh sorry, take a look at Kris fan comments, you people have hatred and spewing down to a science.

  • ji

    @Jamie: uh , list the appearance you liar, who has had more press coverage, more mag covers, on all the top lists as the most outstanding entertainer in years, it Adam. Take you denial glasses off , Kris sucks, lowest sales in the history of Idol and nothing you say can change the fact. moron

  • kell

    YOU KNOW, ALL YOU PATHETIC KRIS FANS SHOULD SHUT UP AND SUPPORT HIM AND BUY HIS CD, YOU CAN’T BE PROUD OF THE FACT HE HAS THE LOWEST SALES OF ANY IDOL IN HISTORY, THAT TELLS THE WHOLE STORY!!

  • Bonnui

    @Billboard loves Kris: you are a riot, you write about hatred and here you are saying derogatory things about Adam, calling him madam and his fans names, take a look in the mirror hypocrite, you are the reason I will never be a Kris fan, you are the ones spewing your hatred and ungracious behavior. you can’t even be a good fan and Kris would cringe at having you for a fan. He is a good person , ADam is a good person, they are friends, you would do well to try and learn how to be a good human being from them. shame on you, name calling like a spoiled little person, yet i’ts not surprising from a Kris fan, take a look at your other Kfans, same disgusting , namecalling….. what , it’s been a year now andyou guys still have a bee up your backsides ?? you really need to get some therapy and get a life.

  • kl

    @Julie: no he is not going gold, you get your facts right

  • TJ

    @WEEE FINALLY THE WINNNER: ADam debuted and # 3 ,Kris couldn’t even make the top 10 and Adam is outselling him more than 3 times as much! Case closed, we know who the real winner it.

  • XYZ

    @Julie: Adam was on RollingStone cover and it was the highest sales of the year, Rolling Stone named him #1 rock vocalist, he was on Barbara Walters 10 most fascinating people, he has been on Elllen, Jay Leno, The View,Entertainment Weekly Cover, RockStar Weekly twice, the second being sold out in one day and more had to be printed, he has been more in the news than Kris ever has, but please don’t let actual facts get in your way of trying to bouy Kris up, he didn’t even crack he top 10, he has the lowest sales of any Idol ever, Adam is outselling him and Adam is #1 in Australia,NewZealand, Isreal, and top 10 in the UK, wait til the numbers come in internationally, Kris isn’t even overseas yet!

  • XYZ

    @Billboard loves Kris: ROCK ON BORING PLAID MEDIOCRE KRIS FAN

  • psych

    @Billboard loves Kris: psychiatrist say what you ridicule in others is what you fear exists in yourself.

  • Shannon

    Oh, look the HATERS are back. Please, no fans are more hateful and vile than Adam’s. They are the meanest, craziest fans ever. Kris’ fans are nothing like that. But, of course we’re not just going to sit back and watch Kris be bashed. We’ll stick up for him, just like you would Adam.

  • Tj

    @Shannon: you are obviously stupid too, look at kfans comments, they do nothing but bash, you blind silly person.

  • LeMarie

    You Adam fans need to go to the first posts and see who started the bashing on this article. It wasn’t a Kris fan. You hypocrites need to practice what you preach. #1 poster started it, and the rest of you followed like blind sheep. You can’t blame Kris fans for standing up for him, you would and have done the same. Just go away and enjoy your pick. You all proved what kind of people you are by attaching VH1 for no reason. By the way Rolling Stone put Clay Aiken on the cover too. The media loves controversy, just saying.

  • oh please

    @LeMarie: oh boo hoo,, you sound like a 2 yr old, who started it, youK fans started this month ago, following Adam, writing disgusting things on his sites , so don’t tell Adam fans we are hypocrites , if you don’t like what we write then don’t name call andrespond, you are just as bad. BTW. where is Kris in the new Peoples Choice Award catagory for Music Phenomenon, Susan Boyle,Gaga and Adam. The media loves real talent!! (you gonna say Susan can’t sing? too?
