Well here it is, the American Idol Season 8 winner. I created this topic to congratulate this seasons winner; Kris Allen. This post includes all his songs starting from Top 13, which are also the studio versions.
Kris Allen was from Conway, Arkansas and auditioned for the American Idol Season 8 at Louisville, Kentucky. He went to Hollywood and made his way up through the Top 13. Kris is talented while performing he used to hold musical instruments such as an acoustic guitar, piano and keyboard. He performed songs which he got good compliments from judges that he would make it to the top. But still a time will come when your performance will not be as good (or as bad) as the last one. He impressed the judges with his version of “She Worked Hard For The Money” on disco week, again with his version of “Heartless”. It was a battle for the finals when both Kris Allen and Adam Lambert battled it out. Kris had a hard time singing the coronation song “No Boundaries” but still it was a close battle between the two finalist. In the end gaining the most votes from all around America, Kris Allen came out as the winner. He was shocked to hear it and he said that Adam Lambert deserves it more, he was still being the humble type until the end.
Off to his songs starting from Top 13. Songs provided are Studio Versions except for the Finale.
Here they are as promised, the live performances from the American Idol Finale. Almost everything is here except for David Cook’s song “Permanent” and the awardees performances (Nick Mitchell, Katrina Darell and Tatiana Del Toro) are not included.
I liked Kris Allen’s performance with Keith Urban here with the song “Kiss the Girls” as well as Danny Gokey and Lionel Richie’s duet. And for Jason Mraz, who came out performing with bare feet, that was weird. Oldies also came crunching the stage, Rod Stewart who almost tripped while walking to the microphone stand. Kiss as usual wearing their make up and Gene Simmons still has his Bass “Axe” Guitar, and a performance with all the fireworks. Lastly Queen even though without Freddie Mercury still rocked the stage with their song We Are the Champions along with Adam Lambert and Kris Allen.
UPDATED: Links are now back to mediafire enjoy them as you like them. I have also added a studio version of Adam Lambert’s No Boundaries.
Well it comes to the week where the American Idol Season 8 has been crowned. From thousands who audited to just two battling for the number spot and gain the title.
This finale is a duel between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. Danny Gokey was eliminated last week by the voters and let Kris Allen pass through. Even though we all know that he had many negative comments from the judges. But this is a democratic competition, where voters actually pick their man, just like voting for a president.
On performance night the Idols had to sing 3 types of song, one song which was picked by the director himself, Simon Fuller and one for what they had performed through out the competition and songs picked by Kara DioGuardi. Round by round the two contestants had to battle, at first Kris won the judges comments while in the second round Adam takes it. Some of the most negative comments came from Simon Cowell which he said to Kris that it was a big mistake from America for voting him and still being in the competition (ouch!).
