Kris Allen

Though he’s part of the soon to be dismantled long reign of White Guys with Guitars that took over the once-popular singing competition American Idol, Kris Allen will always be that class’s most endearingly sweet. Three years ago, the season eight winner beat out Freddie Mercury-style showstopper Adam Lambert with his boy-next-door half-smile and a feel-good sound ripped straight from the Book of Mraz. In concert, don’t be surprised if he steals your heart as swiftyly as he did America’s.

Javier Colon

On the recently released Come Through for You the ultra-agreeable Voice winner sings tunes co-written by James Blunt, Kris Allen, and the guy who produces the Script, which should give even non-Voice viewers a sense of how safely Colon is running his victory lap. Hold out hope for some covers tonight.
