Bubbly Allison Iraheta Takes Over The Stage by Khaya Carter
Last night's American Idol Live concert was explosive! Many of the former contestants performed some of my favorite songs, such as "Hey Jude" by the Beatles, "Beggin" by Frankie Valli, and one of my all-time favorites, "Barracuda" by Heart.
I loved all the performers, but my favorite performances were Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta. They killed it as the two of them both had massive stage presence.
A couple of hours before the show the Music Journalism track got to meet and interview some of the former Idols backstage at Staples Center. I chose Allison and she proved to be really cool and have a bubbly personality. She smiled a lot and was really playful with the other Idols. When one of the other campers finished their interview with Lil Rounds they came in front of us and took a picutre. Allison was playing saying, "Don't come over and ruin my interview, go away go away," prompting laughter from both of the obvious friends who had walked into the room together.
Talking to Allison we found we shared some things in common, like our favorite female artist Pink and Janis Joplin. The interview may have been short, but it was a pleasure.
