Several pictures from the video shoot of Kris Allen's second single "The Truth" have been found. The photos feature the winner of "American Idol" season 8 filming the clip under the burning sun. One of the images sees him falling on his back from a black grand piano to a mattress.

"I do my own stunt," he tweeted. The filming was originally scheduled to be done last week, but got delayed. "Just got to the set for the video shoot. It is so hot," he wrote on July 15. "Update on the video shoot: got goin and then the desert decided it needed a whole lot of rain. So, the video shoot is postponed til Monday."

Written by Train's frontman Pat Monahan and producer Toby Gad, "The Truth" is lifted from Kris Allen's first major-label studio album "Kris Allen". He rides solo in the album version, but later on teams up with Monaghan in the single version.

I love Kris Allen and I love the song the Truth. I can't wait for the video. I dont care if adam already has 2 videos out. Kris is taking his time and make sure it's how he wants it and that he's happy. Hey well kris has commericals. Adam's great ,but I was happy Kris won the idol title he deserves it.

The truth is,I just cant wait for the video for "The Truth" xD.Kris is an awesome performer with a very smooth and silky voice.<3 him. I liked the video for LLWD,but I think this one is gonna be better.I liked his album version of the song better than the single version,Pat doesnt really add to the awesomeness of the song,but as long as he's not taking anything AWAY from it,Im all for it.Cant wait !!

Anthology is one of the finest places to hear live music in the city. The best artists play there. Look it up online if you don't believe me. I understand Kris Allen played two sold out shows there in one night, and many people were turned away at the door. This video looks fascinating and I'm eagerly awaiting its premiere on VH1.

"I Hate JIVE" is a troll if ever I saw one. Kris is doing great, and his recent sold out shows at Anthology, a classy san Diego club (they added a second show because the first one sold out) were fabulous. TROLL, GO AWAY.

I am so angry with Jive right now!! First they had Pat come on and do the song & video when it was so much better on its own and now they are having Kris do concerts at restaruants and bars!! I am fuming! They had him play at a 300 seat restaurant in San Diego. Kris is not dinner theater folks. Now they are giving away his concert tixs at half price in some venues. WTG Jive! This video looks identical to LLWD too! It's like they are treating Kris like a throw away when he is by far the best and most talented winner ever that came out of American Idol. His voice is like silk. He is way better than that gravely voiced Cook! I sent Jive off a letter last week. I know what I'm talking about I've worked behind the scenes in the business at one time. Where's your anger folks! Show Jive you care!

Kris' fans don't hate "The Truth" It's a beautiful song!

Not sure where you get your info. The Truth has and still is my favorite song on the album. I dont think Pat Monahan adds any value to the single vocally, but who cares, it is one line.

Kris is doing great, Anthology in San Diego is a fantastic place for a concert and the fact that he sold out 2 shows is awesome! I can't wait to see this video for The Truth! I love the song and love Kris Allen as an artist. Since "I Hate Jive" professes to be an insider, behind the scenes expert, I would think they would know better than the ridiculousness they posted, lol.

Maybe you're boring?! You jerk! Do something good than trolling Kris's news or website if you just want to criticize knucklehead!

The picture of Kris falling backwards reminds me of when he went body surfing into the crowd during his tour in Asia. Fearless!

"The Truth" is, "The Truth" is going to be another big hit for Kris like "Live Like We're Dying." If trolls weren't afraid of "The Truth" they wouldn't take the time to post. You don't kick a man when he's down. Trolls confuse Kris' new fans because so many are outside the Idol bubble. But, the rest of us understand perfectly. LOL.

There's no getting around the fact that Kris is only playing very small dinner theaters, bars and theme parks. I think it's a very good thing he never said he wanted to be a superstar. Lol

To IHATEJIVE: Please do not insult the intelligence of bloggers, journalists and Kris Fans with your dribble. It's not rocket science to know what your real agenda is. That saying...I was there in San Diego. Anthology is a very hip and hot SD club where only the finest artists play. So I wouldn't snivel at it. Both shows were fabulous. They were sold out and Kris brought the house down. And please don't spout about the number of seats at the club. Sold out is sold out. The crowd for both shows was extremely diverse and they gave Kris a standing O. So the crowd didn't consist of only Idol Kris fans. Kris is playing to a broader audience and conquering new fans all the time. As far as The Truth...I happen to love the song, with or without Pat Monahan. Whether I agree with Pat being in the song or the video is moot. Jive had their reasons and it seems to be working great for HAC. TT is now a Top 20 hit. And since the director of the video is the same as the one who did LLWD, I suspect the video will be quite inventive and like LLWD will be praised for it's innovation.

Well, I HATE JIVE sorry to tell you Kris fans are supporting Kris and this song all the way. None of us is going to hate Jive. We think they are doing a good job with Kris. And for your info, Anthology is an amazing venue and not all artists get the opportunity to play there. Kris never said he wanted to be a "SUPERSTAR". He said he wanted an opportunity to put hismself and his music out there and that's exactly what he's doing and he's very happy. Before idol he was playing for less than 30 people who didn't even care who he was. But guess what, now he plays for people ranging from 300-800 who have bought it tickets specifically to see him. He's also opening for bigger acts for crowds ranging from 3000-10,000. He's played infront of crowds up to 18,000 at festivals and fair. I think he couldn't ask for more. He's doing good as a new artist IMO.
