Kris Allen Performs ‘Girl Pop Medley’ & ‘The Vision of Love’ In-Studio [AUDIO]
So auditions for season 12 of “American Idol” are underway and if you want to get an idea of what it takes to win the whole thing here’s a good place to start…Kris Allen the season 8 “Idol” has been doing a live medley of “Girl Pop” as he calls it. The medley combines hits from ladies like Katy Perry and Rihanna, but it also includes Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend.”
We asked Kris how a guy’s single became part of the female mix. He told us: “We’ve had this little ‘Girl Pop Medley’ for awhile, then we were practicing it in the bathroom and ‘Boyfriend’ just happened to come out and now it has become part of the ‘Not So Girl Pop Medley Anymore.’” Anyway, it’s so good we had to invite him to our studio to play it for us. Listen to his performances of the killer “Girl Pop Medley,” as well as his latest single “The Vision of Love.”

She loved B.o.B’s hit “Airplanes” so much that she invited him onstage in Dallas last year to perform it together. The performance came as a complete surprise to fans who packed the football stadium to see the rising music mogul and after the show B.o.B. played her a demo of “Both of Us.” Check out their collaboration in Dallas above!
