Stephanie Snipes: How does it feel to be the American Idol?
Kris Allen: I feel good. I feel like I've been thrown into the craziest world ever. It's a lot of fun. I'm so excited, seriously. I'm so excited to be here.
SS: You have gotten to do a lot of cool things after the win. But, performing at the NBA finals? What was that like?
KA: The Lakers game was one of the weirdest experiences. It was amazing. It really was. I actually had never sung the national anthem, so I was so nervous. I was like: "I can't forget the words. I have to start it right." And then I think I started it too low and I was like, "Crap!"
