Kris Allen Goes From Reality Show Contestant To Judge For Kidz Bop

Kris Allen apparently hopes to catch some of the career rejuvenation bestowed upon new reality show judges Jennifer Lopez and Blake Shelton. The American Idol Season 8 champ will serve as judge and mentor for Kidz Bop’s 2nd annual Kidz Star USA Talent search, which seeks aspiring singers aged 15 or younger for their web-based competition. Unfortunately, Kidz Bop most likely found Allen’s “Live Like We’re Dying” too appropriate, as no such cover exists to add to this post. Shame. [Via THR, PopDust]
