Another one bites the dust.
Following American Idol winners like David Cook and Lee DeWyze, Kris Allen has "split" with RCA Records.
We're not sure whose idea it was to part ways, but the singer's last album didn't do nearly as well as his first. His sophomore effort sold 15,622 in the first week of release, while his self-titled debut sold over 80,000 copies the first week.
Either way, it doesn't sound like he's too bummed and said in a statement:
He's overcome tough odds before!
After completing his two album commitment with RCA, American Idol star David Cook faces the daunting task of going at it alone. The record company has opted NOT to resign him.
Thankfully, Idol invites past winners to perform on the show often enough that David won't need to start filling out applications at Burger King just yet.
He sang his new track The Last Song I’ll Write For You to millions of viewers last week and enjoyed a pretty positive response. We’re not sure if it was a ditty about his broken heart or an “eff you!” to his former employers at RCA — but we like it!
David admitted after the performance that he didn’t know exactly where to go from here:
The Vote Off Song has a new voice in Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery.
As each Idol contestant says goodbye from the final 13, Scotty's rendition of Garth Brooks' Please Remember Me will try to soothe them as they leave.
