Our new American Idol just landed himself his first job!
Kris Allen will be singing the national anthem this Sunday before game 2 of the NBA finals. It’s one of the biggest competitions of the year. And after that season of Idol, Kris is probably relieved that the pressure won’t be on him that night!
Kris is the latest in a long line of Idol champs to sing the national anthem during the NBA finals. Since 2004, the NBA has worked with winners Kelly Clarkson
, David Cook, Ruben Studdard, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, and Jordin Sparks. In fact, everyone has done it since Fantasia!
So even if you're not a Lakers or Magic fan, and just love Kris, tune into ABC at 8pm ET on Sunday June 7th to hear him sing!
