Kris Allen played a solo concert in his hometown area for the first time since winning American Idol, and he chose the moment to make his long-awaited live debut of "Bring It Back," getting behind the keyboards to sing for the first time the song he wrote with Eg White.

Kris is just plain awesome. I love his voice. Bring It Back is a beautiful song. I'm also glad he introduced Lifetime. The whole CD is one of the best comes from an Idol winner.
