Kris Allen Tells This Year’s Idols: ‘You May Be Good, But My Season Was the Best!’

Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta are probably impressed by your loyalty, Kris, but we’re guessing American Idol’s Season 9 Top 24 may disagree with you….

It’s not secret that Kris Allen is proud of his time on American Idol. After all, the 24-year-old cutie not only won the whole shebang last year, but he also won the prize of two BFF’s – runner-up Adam Lambert, 28, and 17-year-old fourth-placer Allison Iraheta. It’s fairly unsurprising, then, that the singer considers his pals to be the very best in Idol history!

“I’d like to say I’ve seen a lot of [Season 9] but I really haven’t. No one’s going to be like Season 8 though!” Kris confided to during a conference call Feb. 22. He added that he’s been too busy to discern who this year’s clear front-runners will be. “I’ve seen a couple people, but I think I’ll pay more attention once I meet them,” he added.

Kris certainly HAS been busy. In addition to promoting his self-titled album, the crooner spent a whirlwind nine hours with a UN relief worker in Haiti on Feb. 20, where he handed out food and sang songs to Haitian children. Loves it.

However, despite his hectic schedule, Kris did have enough time to give some advice to his predecessors. “I’d tell them to just go out and do your best,” he told us. “I think sometimes they just need to hear that so they can do what they need to do.”

Now there’s a statement that would make Paula Abdul proud, Kris.

American Idol Season 8 was the best – because of Adam Lambert. Adam is the best idol ever!

Agree with Paula when she stated last season, never in the past 8 seasons has there ever been someone with the range in his voice and stage presence as Adam Lambert. Everyone else pales in comparison. Good luck to whoever wins season 9, but Kriss was right, his season was the best!!!!
