Allison Iraheta gets signed!

Source: Entertainment Weekly

It’s official! Allison Iraheta has been signed by 19/Jive, just like this year’s American Idol Winner: Kris Allen. Allison finished in 4th place just like past Idol alum, Chris Daughtry. Needless to say, Chris Daughtry and his band “Daughtry” has had phenomenal success with their self-titled debut album which has already sold over 5 million copies worldwide and their much anticipated second album, “Leave This Town”, hits stores on July 14, 2009. This season’s runner-up, Adam Lambert, has also been signed by 19/RCA. All three albums are expected to be released this Fall. Very exciting news for all three of them! I’m curious to hear how their albums will turn out.

Currently Kris, Adam, and Allison are on the American Idol Tour with the rest of the Top 13 contestants. Tour dates can be found here.

    I love Allison! I knew she’d get a deal even if she lost the contest. In the end, I think she’s better off, too, because many Idol losers ended up becoming more successful than the winners themselves. I came across this gallery of all the past “losers.” http://tinyurl.com/idolloserphotos Honestly, I remember these guys more than the winners anyway!

      I agree…Allison is better off. Hopefully 19/Jive won’t try to mold her into a different kind of artist. I think her album is going to sound great though!
