Allison Iraheta And Orianthi Team Up For “Don’t Waste The Pretty”

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.

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?

  • Mari

    Going to one of the concerts ONLY to see Allison. It may sound weird, but she’s really the only one I want to see and since she didn’t get a solo tour, this will have to do.

  • Michele

    I would go to see Allison and Orianthi in a heartbeat. I have no interest in Adam Lambert though… Don’t waste the pretty is more like don’t waste your money. I hope they team up somewhere else

  • Jermaine

    I have no interest in Orianthi (badas.s guitarist, terrible vocalist) and Allison’s ok. But I’m still going because Lambo’s one of the best live performers of this decade.

  • Tyson Jackson

    Really cool of Glambert to give his kid sister a huge platform like this…..she’s one of the most underrated, refined powerhouses her age. And MJ’s guitarist Orianthi is just cool.

  • Rain

    I love Allison and will leave when her set it over…..Adam is not my cuppa.

  • melissa

    Can’t wait to see Allison, Orianthi and Adam on june 23rd in NYC!!!

  • Mary

    I will go to the show only to see Allison. I like Don’t wast the Pretty , If you Don’t know me and also Beat me Up. Beatme Up us is good for disco! One of this songs should be a hit on the radios.

  • M.I.A

    Hilarious that you would go for the opening act and ‘leave’ for the main act.
    If it weren’t for her lovely friend and soon to be flatmate Adam, Allison wouldn’t even have a tour.

  • Love Lockdown

    god I love Adam sfm.

  • bjorkson

    Adam is so amazing :’)

  • Tash

    Ahhhh Adam’s first opening night was insane!!!!!!!! He is unreal! His VOICE, his BAND (esp Monte f’ing guitar LEGEND!!!!), the lighting, the outfits……….it was all so beautiful transported into another time!!! It took my breath away man. I can’t believe they put it together so well with the timing and budget, and it was only his first show!?! The audience was fresh and mixed, there were even jocks lmao. He was really mindlbowing, so much better than I even expected. Alli and Ori did great!!!

  • John

    If Jive is not giving up ………. then why don’t they put out a video of “Don’t Waste The Pretty” ?? The album is so good and I”ve not seen any promotion for it.

  • Pat

    Allison, this one is a little better. We need more rock from you

  • Mary

    Yes I agree. Managers of Allison please investigate to see why aren’t the stores selling Allison Iraheta CD’s. This is not good for her. How people will buy her albums if the stores are not selling it. I had ask the question, why they don’t have her album. The sales rep stated to ask the distributors.
