yup I met Kris Allen - Season 8 American Idol yesterday (8/2/2010) at Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur..and managed to get the album and his autograph too..lucky I'm on leave tat day hehe :P
Hitz.fm, Malaysia's English radio station is the first to break the good news. On its official website, Hitz.fm stated that the American idol will be here to promote the new season of AI (for its official broadcaster, Star World) as well as his debut album.
Kris's eponymous debut was released recently. The album has already spawned two hits, Live Like You're Dying and No Boundaries.
This is the first time a winner of the hit reality show has performed in Malaysia. Season seven runner-up David Archuleta held a concert here last year.
Fans who had received special invitations by participating in contests organised by Astro and Hitz.fm joined the showcase crowd at a hotel.
Arkansas-born Allen, 24, greeted his audience at a meet-and-greet session after the show, where he posed for pictures and signed autographs.
He also appeared at the Mid Valley Megamall before his showcase, where die-hard fans had been gathering since morning to be one of the 200 to receive his autograph.
Having flown to Kuala Lumpur after doing two shows in the Philippines, Allen’s next stop will be Singapore.
