Allen, whos performing along with Idol alum Allison Iraheta on Billboards New Years Eve Live on FOX December 31, threw a big house party last New Years that was a real blast.
About 45 guests went out on his deck and lit sparklers to celebrate, and someones pants caught on fire.
Allen says that particular partier hasnt been to his house since.
Despite that incident, Allens holiday is usually pretty lucky.
Every New Years Day (Jan. 1), his mom makes cabbage and black eyed peas for good luck in the year ahead.
Irahetas family celebrates the fresh start with food too.
She admits her huge clan typically spends their New Years Eve eating our faces off until the next morning.
She squeezes in a little performance for the family between bites.
