‘American Idol Winner Kris Allen Sings Katy Perry’
Watch Matt Morrison sing “Still Got Tonight;” co-written by Kris Allen, on the Finale of Glee!
ALLEN says: “I really wasn’t worried about the results, just because if you get in the top two seriously, you’ve kind of made it so I’m happy for Lauren and Scotty and how far that they’ve made it, they’re amazing, they’re, great singers, they’re going to have amazing country careers and I’m really excited for them.”
ALLEN says: “for tonight, for the performance I would just say like go out there and do what you’ve been doing, they’ve made it there for their own reasons and everyone loves them for who they are so just keep being yourself.”
ALLEN says: ” For the person that wins I would just say like stand up for what you believe in and listen to the people around you and learn from everything that you do.”
ALLEN says: “Life has changed completely, for the better, I love what I do, I love singing, I love writing music and I don’t know I love having the fans that I do and this is just an amazing – amazing opportunity I’ve had to do what I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid.”

ArcaMax chatted with Kris about Idol, his Memorial Day Performance, his co-write for Matt Morrison & more! A few excerpts below:
“It is what it is. The people in the finale are great, too — Lauren and Scotty. I can’t imagine going through what they’re going through at that age, so kudos to them,” adds the 25-year-old performer, speaking of 16-year-old Lauren Alaina and 17-year-old Scotty McCreery.
Allen says he’ll be at both tonight’s (5/24) final performance show and tomorrow night’s (5/25) crowning of this season’s “Idol” as an audience member.
The singer-songwriter will be among the stellar lineup for this Sunday’s (5/29) National Memorial Day Concert in Washington D.C., performing before an estimated crowd of some 300,000 — and millions more watching live, here and abroad.
“That will be, without question, the biggest crowd I’ve sung for — by far,” he notes with a laugh. “They asked me, and when you think of something like that, it’s kind of a no-brainer. I’m really excited to be out there that day.”
Also, Allen found out recently that “Still Got Tonight,” which he co-wrote, and which has become a single for Matthew Morrison, is going to be performed by Morrison in the
June 8season finale of “Glee.”
