Justin Gaston and Brooke White Butcher American Idol Opportunity

by at . Comments

Adam Lambert was his usual theatrical, entertaining self on the American Idol results show last night.

But he wasn't the only past Idol finalist to return to the stage that made him famous: season seven contestant Brooke White also performed, which would have been exciting and memorable - except that she brought Justin Gaston with her.

Yes, the same Justin Gaston that's famous for posing in his underwear and formerly dating Miley Cyrus.

The pair put on a strange duet of the single "If I Can Dream." Is Gaston even lip-synching it? Watch and grade for yourself:

Next week, meanwhile, the show airs its charitable Idol Gives Back special on Wednesday night.

Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, the Black Eyed Peas, Annie Lennox and Jeff Beck are all booked to perform on it. Tune in, call in to make a donation, and try to forget that Justin Gaston was ever a part of this show.

At 3:02 he accidentally lowered the microphone too much and his voice started to fade, then he raised it back up and it was fine. So it doesn't seem like a lip sync to me. It wasn't perfect, but it certainly wasn't bad either. More pointless Justin bashing...

I think that they did a good job for a song that they didn't write, they didn't perform more than a few times and I think Justin is just as talented as a lot of other people who are out there singing. And the kid seems to really be working hard. give 'em a break or don't listen. I went ahead and downloaded the Itunes song, and would have paid for it even though they gave out for free.

I thought Brooke was fabulous and saved the number with her beautiful harmony

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
