Kris Allen performed a three-song, 10-minute set in front of about 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden for Z-100's Jingle Ball Friday night. He sang "Can't Stay Away", "Heartless/Gangsta's Paradise" and "Live Like We're Dying". Allison Iraheta introduced him.

Kris sounded great from that video. And the screaming! Whoah. Most impressive, though, was the audience singing along. And this wasn't a crowd that was there only for Kris. This was a random sampling of people singing KRIS' song at the top of their lungs. Unreal. I really hope he was able to hear that from the stage. I can't even imagine how incredible of a feeling that had to have been for him.
And whoever continues to say Kris can't play big venues after watching that Live Like We're Dying video needs to GTFO and STFU. Sorry.
Here are some videos from Peanutttty and LiteraryNut:
