Kris Allen performed a 7 song set on 12/7/09 for XLO Acoustic Xmas in Worcester, Massachusetts.

He played a charming rendition of “The Christmas Song”.

My personal favorite of the evening was “Is It Over”, a bluesy soulful song he wrote with his pal and band-mate, Cale Mills.

He started his set off with the always gorgeous cover that he made famous during his American Idol run, “Heartless” (Kanye West) that he now masterfully mashes up with “Gangster’s Paradise (Coolio).

Crowd favorite was “Alright With Me” which he joked, if you don’t sing along, I’ll leave!”

his cover of “Man In the Mirror” (Michael Jackson),

and of course the hit single “Live Like We’re Dying”.

Other performers at this event were Joshua Radin, Ingrid Michaelson, and the Barenaked Ladies.

My favorite performance of “Can’t Stay Away” is still from the Miami Dolphins tailgate party, which coincidentally is the primordial performance of that song, check it out, Kris and his band really rocked it out!
