Kris Allen visited ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ to talk about winning ‘American Idol’, and how he almost quit the hit FOX show. “My wife has been the [best] support ever,” Allen said. “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.”
Ellen also got ‘Idol’ runner-up Adam Lambert on the phone. “We were kind of mentally prepared to have whatever happened happen,” Adam said about the moment Kris won and Ellen said he handled not winning beautifully. “He was shocked. I had to shake him a little bit. Adam then revealed, “I have to tell you something. I’m wearing the underwear you gave me on the blue carpet. It’s so comfortable. Thank you so much.”
