Kris Allen to Sing National Anthem at NBA Finals

By: Celebuzz / June 6, 2009

Oh say can you see, Kris Allen singing the national anthem?

Yes, you can—but you’ll have to wait until Sunday.

Us Magazine reports that American Idol winner Allen will belt out “The Star-Spangled Banner” during Game 2 of the NBA finals tomorrow, when the Los Angeles Lakers face off once again against the Orlando Magic.

Allen follows such AI alum as Taylor Hicks, Kelly Clarkson, Rubben Studdard, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks and David Cook in singing the national anthem at NBA championship games.

Game 2 of the NBA Finals will air at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC on Sunday.

Have your say in the comments section: Will you tune in to see Kris Allen perform the national anthem? And how do you think he will do compared to his American Idol predecessors?
