Kris Allen Talks ‘Idol’ Return, Taylor Hicks, Remixes & Colton Dixon Elimination

Season 8 champion Kris Allen returned to the "American Idol" stage Thursday night to perform his new single, "The Vision Of Love," introduced by an extremely excited Taylor Hicks. (Who knew the Soul Patroller was such a big Kris fan?) Afterwards, Kris headed backstage, where he chatted briefly with Reality Rocks about his just-launched "Vision Of Love" remix contest, his reaction to Colton Dixon's surprising elimination, and his forthcoming album, Thank You Camellia. Enjoy Kris's interview, and "Idol" performance, here!
