Album: Just Like You – Jive Records PopWatch Dec 3rd Interview:

What does People Magazine have to say?
Dec 2nd. If Allison Iraheta is striving to be just like any one on her debut album, it’s Pink. From her tough rock edge to the bluesy shades of her voice – both belying her 17 years – last season’s fourth-place-finisher on “American Idol” sounds like she could be Pink’s bratty little sister. In fact, the power ballad “No One Else” ws cowritten by the “So What” singer (along with “Idol’s” Kara Dioguardi). Two other tracks, including the punk-spiked standout “Friday I’ll Be Over U,” were produced by Max Martin, a frequent Pink collaborator. Elsewhere, “Scars,” all vulnerable intropection, sounds like it could be an outtake from “M’ssundaztood.” At least until she finds her own voice, Iraheta has picked a good person to emulate.”

Entertainment Weekly added Allison to The Must List for Week of Oct 18th 2009:
Per EW: “The booted-too-soon season 8 American Idol contestant is already earning comparisons to Kelly Clarkson for her slamming new single (with an ample sample of the Go-Gos’ infectious joy). From the first shouts of ”Oh, yeah!” it’s clear Iraheta’s brand of girl-power rock is fun, upbeat, and instantly addictive. She’s psyched. We’re sold.”

Watch Allison’s interview for People Magazine: May 12th, 2009 as she speaks about her future in music, her signature red hair, and working (hopefully) with Pink. :,,20278291,00.html
