Magenta-haired Idol alum Allison Iraheta and Aussie rock goddess Orianthi are opening for Adam Lambert on his Glam Nation tour, and it looks like they’re already getting along really well. Allison revamped her Just Like You track “Don’t Waste the Pretty” by adding the singer-guitarist, who provides some backing vocals and a killer rock riff on the single version of the song. Basically, there’s more grrl power on this track than you know what to do with. Listen below.[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Allison-Iraheta-Don-t-Waste-The-Pretty-ft.-Orianthi.mp3" text="Allison Iraheta feat.

This rock ballad about not wasting your time with guys who don’t treat you right is empowering and, with Orianthi’s killer guitar solo, totally rockin’. We can barely believe Allison is only 18-years old and has been performing professionally only for the last year since leaving Idol. She really knows how to deliver a fresh, exciting song, and it appears Jive isn’t yet giving up on the colorfully-coiffed teen despite the disappointing sales of her previous singles “Scars” and “Friday I’ll Be Over U.”
Are you guys excited to catch Allison and Orianthi on Adam’s tour?
