FOX‘s American Idol returns tonight after America had their say about the Elton John performances and we will watch as two finalists are eliminated! To kick off this exciting evening, Idol’s very own Grammy Award winning Fantasia will take the stage with a performance. Keep reading for more details!
American Idol will be chock full of fun tonight as Grammy Award winning alumni will hit the stage once again, but this time to debut her new single. In a press release by Fox we’re told Grammy Award and American Idol Season 3 winner Fantasia will return to American Idol tonight to make her national television debut performance of “Collard Greens and Cornbread,” the third single from her current critically-acclaimed album Back To Me. The single will impact urban radio on April 11th. The Doo-Wop reminiscent “Collard Greens and Cornbread,” which flashes back to the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell timeless duet “Your Precious Love,” was written and produced by Warren “Oak” Felder and Andrew “Pop” Wansel.
“Bittersweet,” Fantasia’s first single from Back To Me, which she launched on American Idol last May, recently won the North Carolina native her first ever Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Song. One of the most electrifying live performers of this generation, Fantasia will take to the main stage at this year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on April 30th and the Essence Music Festival July 1-3, also held in New Orleans. And after we get to see this electrifying performance, we will have to say goodbye to two finalists – I sure hope you all voted last night to save your favorites, because you just never know what is going to happen! See you after the show!
