kris allen allison iraheta 'American Idol' finalists Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta performing for Billboard's New Year's EveNeed something else to watch on New Year’s now that “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve” has canceled “American Idol” Adam Lambert? Billboard’s got your “Idol” fix covered.

“American Idol” winner Kris Allen and fourth-place finisher Allison Iraheta will take the stage live from Las Vegas on Dec. 31 to perform hits off their latest albums.

Carmen Electra is hosting the live Billboard New Year’s Eve event, which airs on FOX from 11:00 pm to 12:30 am ET Dec. 31. In addition to the “American Idols,” singer Sean Kingston will also be performing.

We’re a bit surprised they didn’t nab Adam Lambert for this after ABC dropped him. Talk about getting the band back together. We’d love to see it; no other season of “Idol” contestants actually seemed like the real friends the contestants were on this last season.
