Kris Allen Performs National Anthem

by at . Comments

While a slew of celebrities may attend Los Angeles Lakers games on a nightly basis, how many actually take to the court and perform?

Such was the position in which Kris Allen found himself last night, as the American Idol champion performed the National Anthem prior to Game Two of the NBA Finals.

The Lakers and disloyal husband Kobe Bryant went on to take a commanding series lead with an overtime victory, but the evening's big winner was Allen. He did a great job.

Meanwhile, Allen has landed a deal with Jive Records; his album will drop this fall.

"As exciting as the last few months have been, I'm really looking forward to what is next," Allen said in a statement today. "I'm very grateful to be working with Simon Fuller and his team at 19 Entertainment, along with Barry Weiss and Jive Records on my debut album."

He did a great job with the national anthem, simple yet beautiful, the way any national anthem should be sang. I'm looking forward to his CD.
