Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert
And on the third day, 19 Recordings signed... the fourth-place finisher. Following Monday's and Tuesday's one-two punch of record deals for American Idol champ Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert, Idol top 4 finalist Allison Iraheta landed one of her own with 19/Jive Records on Wednesday.
"I think I'm still in shock that this is happening — getting to record my first album and this whole awesome experience is a dream come true!" Iraheta said in a statement.
Iraheta joins Allen on 19/Jive, while Lambert's Tuesday deal locked him with 19/RCA Records (that news was probably overshadowed by this.) Conspicuously left out of the deal-making? Third-place finisher Danny Gokey. Gokey, naturally, has disc dreams of his own. "I would love to put [an album] out before January. That is my personal goal," he told TVGuide.com last month.
Like Allen and Lambert, Iraheta's debut disc is slated for a fall release. The trio, along with the rest of the Top 10, will hit the road on a 50-city tour, starting July 5 in Portland, Ore.
