SPOILER ALERT: The above headline is not an exaggeration. Indeed, Allison Iraheta, third runner-up on season 8 of American Idol, dropped by Manhattan’s Hudson Terrace this afternoon to celebrate the release of her debut CD, Just Like You, by performing a rendition of her undeniably gorgeous track “Don’t Waste the Pretty” (with acoustic accompaniment by David Immerman). We’ll post footage of our in-depth Réalité interview with Allison on Wednesday afternoon, but until then, enjoy the rare pleasure of listening to a major-label teenage artist who doesn’t need a drop of Auto-Tune to make your jaw dip low. Oh, and when you’re done watching “Don’t Waste the Pretty” on repeat loop, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak.
