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.
