Last night, American Idol completed it’s eleventh season on Fox TV by crowning the new American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips and as always the finale show was filled with lots of celebrity surprises and performances including Fantasia, Chaka Khan, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Aero Smith, Reba McinTyre, and in my opinon the best damn performance of the night with Jennifer Holliday & American Idol runner up Jessica Sanchez singing “And I Am Telling You”.
Check out some of our favorite performances after the jump including the power-house duet with Jennifer & Jessica.
Yes we are die hard Fantasia fans over here at WhatsTheT and YES Fantasia was dead wrong for this cat suit. Nevertheless, AI third place winner and crooner, Joshua Ledet, dream came true last night as he got to perform on stage with his Idol Fantasia. Together they performed “Take Me to the Pilot”.
Rihanna took the stage and performed her new single “Where Have You Been” and to our surprise she sounded pretty damn good. the stage set, dancers, and her dance routine was on point as well! Check out her performance below.
The absolute best performance in American Idol history for a finale show EVER goes to Jennifer Holliday and 16 y/o AI winner-up Jessica Sanchez. As i tweeted during the show,
“Y’all don’t understand this is a 16 asian/filipino y/o on stage saaaaaaanging with Jennifer Holliday. #PrettyEpicShit for this girl!!!!!!”
In my head Jessica Sanchez WON!!!!
