allison iraheta 290 'American Idol': Allison Iraheta's 'Friday I'll Be Over U' music videoWatch “American Idol” finalist Allison Iraheta’s fabulous video for “Friday I’ll Be Over U.”

What a great video. It’s like a cross between A-Ha’s “Take On Me” and something out of the Dire Straits oeuvre. We love the irony that the born-in-1992 Idol has a video straight out of 1983. Fantastic.

allison iraheta 'American Idol': Allison Iraheta's 'Friday I'll Be Over U' music videoIn all the hoopla surrounding Kris Allen and Adam Lambert’s first albums, we’d forgotten how catchy Allison’s debut single is. We think with the right songs she could become the next Idol female pop star. They really haven’t had one since Kelly Clarkson. (Carrie Underwood’s too country to be considered pop.) Here’s hoping, Allison!

What do you guys think? Yay or nay on the video?
