Your friend or family member has never heard of Kris Allen and you've decided to make it your mission to convert them into as big a fan as you are.

What's the first piece of media you would choose to introduce them to Kris?  It could be a performance from 'Idol', a song from a live show, an interview, one of his music videos...whatever you think would make the biggest impact and have them asking to see (and hear) more.

I meant April 2010.  Got mixed up which doesn't take much these days!  LOL!

This is a really tough one, so many sides to Kris that you wouldn't want someone to miss!  I guess I would go with the AWM video though, because it shows how dynamic he and KAB are.  And then when they inevitably ask for more, I'd go with an exquisite ballad. :)

Again, there are so many to choose from, but I would pick God Bless the USA like Emjay did for the same reasons and the Sacramento banter before LLWD like Marissa picked.  My picture is from that show in April 2009.  The humor and banter in that show was so fantastic!  I cannot end my reply without adding Kris' AWM thank you video for the fans. It not only shows Kris and KAB's humor and singing, but how much he cares for his fans.

I think what I'd pick to show someone might depend on who the someone was, but I think a good choice might be Kris singing God Bless the USA at the PBS Memorial Day concert since it combines his patriotism, great voice (even staying on key while hugging servicemen and women), humble nature, and heartfelt performance.  If that didn't hook them, I'd fear they might be missing a vital organ from their chest!

If my friends didn't know who Kris Allen was there'd be some serious issues. Nonetheless, I would force them to listen to To Make You Feel My Love because the first time I heard it, I cried. It's so beautiful. And then, when they're hooked, I'd show them any one of his hilarious videos because he's pretty good at making me laugh. Then maybe they'd love him almost as much as I do.

I think I'm going to have to research this for a few hours and get back to you.... so much to choose from!

I would probably show them this video of LLWD with hilarious banter. It's from Sacremento, and kinda old. But I think it really brings out Kris(and Cale's) humor as well as talent. Also, it really gives you a sense of how good Kris interacts with an audience. Totally love this video and it would definitely be one of the first ones I would show a non(but absolutely soon to be) Kris fan. :)

The performance that I would use to introduce someone to Kris is his "Let It Be" performance on Idol Gives Back on Season 9.  Kris's performance of this song was so pure, so real, so beautiful and so humble and it reveals the kind of gentle and compassionate spirit that Kris possesses.  Pretty much anything Kris does reflects his incredible talent and genuine sincerity.  When I look back on his Idol performances, I am struck by how professional his performances were, even before touring.  Any performance that showcases his awesome sense of humor would also be a great way to cultivate Kris fans.  Can you tell I love Kris Allen?!
