American Idol News + Fantasia Sings Bittersweet Live


Here is Fantasia performance of her new single “Bittersweet” which she performed for the first time last night on American Idol. Her new album comes out later this summer….


In other Idol news it’s over for “Big Mike” on “American Idol” – all because of a fictional killer whale. Although Michael Lynche impressed the judges during his second song – a rendition of Bryan Adams’ “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman” with fellow contestant Casey James – it was his performance of Michael Jackson’s “Will You Be There” from the “Free Willy” soundtrack that did him in. [Watch both clips below.]

The panel found his interpretation too “predictable,” and apparently, America did as well. “It was tough,” said the 26-year-old personal trainer from Queens, N.Y. “It’s a really big song.”

Lynche was rescued by the show’s judges five weeks ago, but he received the fewest viewer votes for Tuesday’s movie-themed edition.

Before Lynche’s dismissal, Bon Jovi took the stage for “Superman Tonight.” Earlier in the evening, third-season winner Fantasia Barrino crooned “Bittersweet,” and fifth-season finalist Chris Daughtry and his band sang “September.”

The other finalists remaining in the singing contest are 24-year-old musician Crystal Bowersox of Toledo, Ohio; 24-year-old paint sales clerk Lee Dewyze of Mount Prospect, Ill.; and 27-year-old musician Casey James from Fort Worth, Texas.

Next week, the final three will perform after traveling to their hometowns, with one more tossed before the finale on May 26.
