kris allen national anthem  'American Idol': Kris Allen sings National Anthem at NFC championshipThe Vikings and Saints were treated to a soulful rendition of the National Anthem before their playoff game, courtesy of “American Idol” winner Kris Allen.

Kris is originally from Conway, Arkansas, which isn’t too far from Louisiana. The Saints make a natural NFL team for him to root for and sports love to ask fans of teams to sing the National Anthem when they can.

We really enjoyed Kris’s rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner. And his appearance certainly makes worlds more sense than Adam Lambert being at the Screen Actors Guild awards Saturday night (Jan. 23).
