The 15th and final bittersweet season of American Idol is almost over, and all season long, Yahoo Music’s Reality Rocks has been asking alumni to share their stories. Here is an excerpt from Kris Allen’s latest:
“How I got through Rock Week, I really don’t know.
Top four. I couldn’t believe I had made it this far! I definitely never saw it coming. If I could make it through to the next week, I would get to go back to Arkansas and do a homecoming episode.
But first… Rock Week.
I was the least “rock” out of the four contestants left, other than I could play guitar. I knew this was going to be a tough one. Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta were going to crush this week, because it was right up their alley. I wouldn’t call Danny Gokey a rock guy, but I knew he could hang just on his gravely voice alone.
So we had to pair up. Adam and Allison immediately joined forces, so that left me and Danny together. And honestly, it really didn’t matter who I dueted with, because I knew that all three of them could sing higher and “better” than me. Therefore, there was no way out of this. But this performance wasn’t supposed to matter, so it wasn’t a big deal, right? I knew better than that.”

Can’t explain why it’s so hard to watch Danny back then. I’m so happy for his life now. I will say I remember this performance and I thought Danny sounded great!
