American Idol Performances: Fantasia, Jamie Foxx and will.i.am

by at . Comments

American Idol sent two contestants home last night, as it was the end of the singing line for Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

But the sad news for fans of those finalists was pre-empted by by a couple of entertaining performances.

First, Fantasia Barrino returned to the stage that made her famous and got the crowd on its feet for a rendition of "Collard Greens & Cornbread," giving a shout-out to Steven Tyler near the end of it. What do you think of this single? Give it a listen here:

Also, Jamie Foxx and will.i.am teamed up. They got down with a drum line and a series of dancers and introduced the world to "Hot Wings," their song off the Rio soundtrack. Check out the elaborate performance below.

@ Sarah..You have to understand that these people in the limelight have things made up and said about them all the time. We can't go around listening to everything we hear, and build from there.. that is not our job.. you never know what somebody is going through in their lives when they have to make decisions. I could assume that by your comments your old, negative, and miserable but your probably nothing like that. So you have to take it for what it is and let the personal lives be theirs just like our lives are ours...

As far as performance art MS Fantasia really nailed it totally her genre and so hot on her heels just a great performance. I did not think would like her as have seen her when she was a hot mess and this time I put her on par of Aretha or anyone...wow good job Fantasia. Truly great.

I really loved Fantasia last night on American Idol. I so glad she is going back to some of the more blues, R&B, Motown style Music in this Album. Not that I did not like her other Music. And note: (Sonya) the allegation and rumors were proven unfounded. You right only God can "JUDGE" us when we leave this old world behind, but it sure sound to me that was exactly what you were doing. There's a gospel song that my brother's group sings and its called: SWEEP AROUND YOUR OWN FRONT DOOR, BEFORE YOU TRY TO SWEEP AROUND MINE. We all need to remember this before we what "JUDGE". GOD BLESS

I've really had a hard time liking Fantasia. I never liked her voice at all, then all the rumors, which I chose to ignore, then the fact she had an abortion has about done it. I know I'm not suppose to judge, but I'm finding it even harder to accept her on any level after what she did. She SEEMS to be a nice person and I know only God's judging matters, so I guess I'll leave that to him. She actually sounded really good on American Idol and I liked the song. As for her, well only God knows.

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.
