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

By: Becky Bain / July 22, 2011

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]
