Kris Allen, David Archuleta And More ‘American Idol’ Alumni Reunite For ‘THR’

Becky Bain / June 9, 2011

Though most people dread their high school reunions, the American Idol reunion hosted by The Hollywood Reporter seems like it’d be a party not to miss. The entertainment mag managed to get 29 Idol alumni, split from across all ten seasons, into one room for a class photo. Season 10 faves Pia Toscano and Casey Abrams were in attendance, as was Kris Allen, the only former winner to make it to the reunion. Jump below to watch the alumni talk about their time on the show, what they’ve been doing since, and their thoughts on the new, nice judges.

Sadly, there was no Kelly or Carrie at the event, but Season 9’s “Sanjaya” Tim Urban showed up! (The actual Sanjaya was not. We’re sure he was very busy doing… seriously, why wasn’t he there?)

And if you’re wondering where LA-based Adam Lambert and David Cook were, THR explains: “The latter had non-cancellable meetings apparently. The former? We’re not sure, but needless to say, we were beyond bummed that he couldn’t join our ridiculously fun shoot.”

Check out Allison Iraheta, Blake Lewis, David Archuleta, Kimberly Caldwell, Kris Allen, Elliott Yamin and more hang out in the behind-the-scenes footage and interviews below.
