Kris Allen to Sing National Anthem at NBA Finals
American Idol champ Kris Allen has a new gig.
The season 8 winner will belt out the National Anthem during game 2 of Sunday's NBA Finals between the L.A. Lakers and Orlando Magic. It'll be televised live on ABC.
He's not the first Idol to hit the court. Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks and David Cook have also sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" at championship games.
Next up for Allen: The 50-city American Idol tour, which kicks off July 5 in Portland, Ore., with the Top 10.
