Kris Allen Jams with Mike Huckabee
Kris Allen, Mike Huckabee
Forget Adam Lambert and Jamie Foxx. Kris Allen's first post-American Idol duet is with a former Republican presidential candidate: Mike Huckabee.
Allen, a Conway, Ark., native, teamed with Huckabee, the ex-governor of his home state, for a duet of The Beatles' "Yesterday" on Huckabee's Fox News Channel talk show, scheduled to air Saturday.
Huckabee, who often jams along with his musical guests, backed up the Season 8 champ on bass while Allen, of course, sang and played his trademark acoustic guitar.
Allen's appearance wasn't all about music though.
"Maybe someday I could be the governor of Arkansas, right?" the singer says when asked about his post-Idol tour plans.
"It's a great gig; it really is," Huckabee replies.
Huckabee airs Saturdays at 8 pm/ET.
