Get ready for the three days of Kris-mas at EW.com! Yes, folks, earlier this week we met up with American Idol season 8 champ Kris Allen at Manhattan’s Room Mate Grace Hotel lounge, where he performed an acoustic version of his new single “Alright With Me,” talked with us about creating a TMZ-style scandal to promote it, and then delivered a bonus performance of a certain “controversial” ditty as a special treat for Idolatry viewers. Because we’re not all about instant gratification here, we’ll dole out the good stuff over the next three nights, starting with the absolutely infectious “Alright With Me” after the jump. Come back at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday for the interview segment, and at the same Idol time on Thursday evening for the encore performance. And to get all my Idol-related news and commentary, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY

In Fight Club, the doucheboat neo-fascist Tyler Durden memorably asks, “How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?” The Buried Life‘s Dave Lingwood must have been pondering that same question. In an upcoming episode of MTV’s bucket-list reality show (the second season kicks off tonight at 10:30), he sets a goal for himself: “I want to fight a really good fighter.” That leads to a brutal month of training, which culminates in a showdown with an actual Ultimate Fighter.
EW talked to Dave about his training regimen (check out the video after the jump) and his backup plan (hint: breakdance-fighting!) about six hours before the big fight. (Look for the episode in early November.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What’s it been like training for the fight?
DAVE LINGWOOD: The last month has been an endless Rocky montage. In the mornings I’ll go and do either a run or a class. At nights I’ll do sparring and Muay Thai. I also went into training with a Shaolin monk and learned some crazy pressure-point accuracy stuff. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to use it, but it was just cool to hang out with this 80-year-old Shaolin monk with a mullet.
My ear is blown, I’ve fractured my nose… It’s just been so, so intense. I’m the youngest of three boys, and I’ve been getting butt kicked my whole life. So it’s nice to take out that aggression on someone else. READ FULL STORY
