American Idol season 8 winner Kris Allen joins THR on the Idol Hangover couch this week to talk about his new album, Thank You Camellia, and sure-to-be-a-hit single "The Vision of Love."
Also on deck: a discussion of his favorite season 11 contestants, whether he would consider mentoring on The Voice, like Kelly Clarkson recently did, and what he really thinks of the so-called "fan wars" that still erupt regularly pinning him against runner-up Adam Lambert. Plus, "Vision of Love" songwriter-producer Nasri, who's worked with Justin Bieber and Chris Brown, joins in on the Hangover hang.
That's all in part 2 of the episode (watch above); In part 1, special correspondent and Idol alum Didi Benami talks about her teary post-show interview with eliminated contestant DeAndre Brackensick and runs down Wednesday's stand-out moments and strongest contenders with THR music editor Shirley Halperin.
