Although an episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" which features Kris Allen as a musical guest will not be aired until May 26, video footage of him singing in the popular talk-show have hit the web. He is captured delivering "No Boundaries", the winning song of "American Idol" season eight, and a rendition of Kanye West's hit single "Heartless".
Beside making a performance, Kris Allen was also taped for an interview with the show's host Ellen DeGeneres. Among other things that he discussed with Ellen were that he thanked his wife Katy O'Connell Allen for being very supportive toward him during the singing competition.
"My wife has been the (best) support ever," the singer explained. "I seriously almost gave up a lot, and she was just like, 'You have to keep going.' She believed in me more than I believed in myself."
