Thanks to one of our readers, Megan, who is in the same sorority as Kris’ wife Katy, we have a sneak peek into Kris Allen’s homecoming! Kris had his homecoming in Little Rock and Conway, Arkansas where he took pictures with fans, and did a three song set for 15,000 people. You can find video of that below! Here is a brief break down of Kris’ day”

He made rounds at radio stations in the a.m.
9:45 AT&T store at Shackleford Crossing
11:30 Riverfest Amphitheater in Little Rock
3:00 UCA performance at Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall
5:00 Parade in downtown Conway
5:30 Performance at Simon Park

Later in the day, a parade on Oak Street gave Kris a heroic welcome. A police escort led, and The UCA band played the school’s fight song, but instead of the usual U-C-A B-E-A-R-S, the voices shouted out K-R-I-S during the percussion solo.

As Kris took the stage the crowd screamed, and he appeared to be at a loss for what to say.

“You guys are crazy,” he joked. “I owe everything to you guys, ’cause I know you’re voting your tails off. So thanks for that.”

Kris started off his set with “Man in the Mirror,” followed by “She Works Hard for the Money,” and ending with “Falling Slowly.” He thanked the audience again and presumably went to prep for the coming week.

Check out more photos and video Kris Allen’s homecoming performances below. Thanks Megan!!
