Attention Allison Iraheta fans! The wait is over. Embedded below is our very (very, very) special five-part Idolatry interview with the red-headed rocker. Find out (among other things) which two Idol finalists helped Allison with song choice during Motown and Michael Jackson Weeks, how she grappled with mature lyrical content, and why she worried about comparisons to Carrie Underwood and Katharine McPhee. Allison also dishes her “Hot Stuff” song arrangement, her guitar-playing on “Don’t Speak,” and the bullet she dodged during Disco Week. (Note: We totally would’ve done 10 parts with 100 more questions, but Allison had to rush back to rehearse for Wednesday’s American Idol finale.) Press play below, and enjoy!
