Fantasia Serves ‘Collard Greens & Cornbread’ On ‘Idol’

Published: Thursday 31st Mar 2011 by Trent

Hungry? Well if you are then Fantasia has exactly what you need. The full-figured songstress hit the stage on ‘American Idol’ where she performed ‘Collard Greens & Cornbread’ from her critically acclaimed ‘Back To Me’ album.

See Fantasia in action below:

A few mangled belts aside, that was a brilliant showing from the former ‘Idol’ champion. When it comes to putting on a good show there a few who manage to keep an audience engaged quite like Fantasia.

Sidebar: I will not comment about her new look. No I won’t.

    She was awesome & looked gorgeous.

  2. CHECKEDSHIRTCHRIS March 31, 2011

    I’m not a fan of hers much (I’m not a hater, the title just caught my eye). Ummm She has a song called collard greens and cornbread? Girl….
    Aside from that, she sounded pretty nice, forgot just how distinct her voice is.

    And LOL at no comment on how she looks…Lets not even…Thats for another night…

  34. Judge & Jury April 1, 2011

    I wish she sang Bittersweet. The track she won a grammy for best rnb song. She KILLS that live everytime. This current track is corny and doesnt showcase her vocals at all. Broadway s***, mehhh!!

  35. stan April 1, 2011

    love the performance, hated the dress.

  36. stan April 1, 2011

    oh, and she actually gave good advice at the end.

  37. Robier April 1, 2011

    I like the thickness

  38. Bubbles April 1, 2011

    Lol Fanny looks a hot dayum mess! Why does she look like Ursula from the little mermaid? She better pay homage!

    Ursula > Fantasia.

  39. sandy April 1, 2011

    Tasia love the performance she gave a shot out to steven tyler because they worked together before.She show them how its done that song is even better when she did it on tour with her own band.And yes she have to gain 45 lbs for a movie roll.

  40. BENJAMIN April 1, 2011

    I’m sorry, I would have never made a song like this, lol.

  41. The Truth April 1, 2011

    LOVE the song! She’s gaining weight to play Mahalia Jackson in a movie. The dress was tighter then it should have been but nice retro look. I wish the guys did the dance they usually do in concert to that song.

    The Steven Tyler shout out was sooo cute. She’s a great performer.

  42. KaVion April 1, 2011

    Such a beautiful singing voice, but when she talks, I can’t help but to laugh my ass off.

  43. NICK April 1, 2011

  46. I’madiva April 1, 2011

    She killed tht performance!!! She gained extra weight for a movie ppl!

  47. dee April 1, 2011

    SHE LOOK GREAT AND SHE KILLED IT

  48. katbunny April 1, 2011

    Some of ya’ll are really simply stupid! First of all, probably the reason Fantasia did not sing the Grammy winner “Bittersweet” is because she has already preformed that song
    on AI. Fastasia has gainned weight due to a movie role, she had to gain 40 lbs.

    Lastly, I agree with Simon Cowell. Fantasia is the most “talented” person, so far, to have
    hit the Idol’s stage.

    She has a beautiful dark skinned complexsion and s*** full lips.

    Patti Labelle explains it better, but be mindful, that those who calls Fantasia ugly are people who probably think dark skin and full lips are not attractive.

    Fantasia gave a wonderful performance. I think she’s an attractive young woman and that
    doesn’t mean that I like all of her hairstyles or outfits. I love her entire CD.

    All of ya’ll dark-skinned, full-lips beauties out there, know that you are beautiful !

  49. FamilyGuy April 1, 2011

    She Killed It.

  50. uknowumad April 1, 2011

    FANTASIA IS GAINING WEIGHT FOR A MOVIE PEOPLE GET OVER IT

  55. bk April 1, 2011

    LOVE Fantasia!
    Collards was fabulous live and even better on Idol. Tasia was in command. She has the confidence to do what moves her and is incredibly creative. Tonight, 25 million people watched a gifted singer.
    Dead career? Fantasia just won a GRAMMY!

  56. Randy April 1, 2011

    Nice!!! Go Fanny

  57. HAHA April 1, 2011

    GO head Fantasia!!!!! SANG BISH!!! Yassssss u slayed my soul with that performance

  60. michael cox April 1, 2011

    Fanty goes totally old school. Major Motown vibe here. I keep hearing “Heaven must have sent you from above…heaven must have sent your sweet love…” Ha ha. Fantasia finishes the song and says, “Steven, I love you!” Cute.

  61. michael cox April 1, 2011

    WHAT IS EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT THE LOOK…. SHE HAS LOOKED HER BEST IN AWHILE… IT’S PRETTY SAD, WHEN U CAN’T PLEASE NO ONE… SHE LOOKED GREAT 2NITE… LOVE IT… MY BABY IS THICK…. AT LEAST, SHE SHAVES HER ARMS AND KEEPS HERSELF CLEAN UNLIKE MOST OF YA’LL HOODRATS… GOD LOVES U FANTASIA AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS…. GET IT FANTASIA…..

  62. MC_BFLY April 1, 2011

    FANTASIA AND THIS SONG SHITS ON ALL THE CRAP ON RADIO RIGHT NOW!!!! THIS IS THE EXACT KIND OF MUSIC THAT SHOULD BE PRAISED!!! SHE PERFORMED JUST AS GREAT WHEN I SAW HER ON TOUR FRONT AND CENTER, SHE IS REAL AND FABULOUS, IF ANYONE SAYS ANY DIFFERENT THEY MUST BE DAMN FOOLS!!!

  63. Rebecca Black Stan April 1, 2011

    class, dramatics, sass and beauty — THIS GURL HAS IT ALL.

  64. michael cox April 1, 2011

    She’s wearing a sparkly red dress slit all the way up to the waist, and her hair’s practically blonde, with one big curl in the front — sort of a nuevo Etta James look, one that fits the old-school soul sound of the single. It’s one of my favorite songs from Back to Me, and she sings the fire out of it….

  65. JohnVidal April 1, 2011

    I wonder what was JLo thinking about seeing talent in front of her!

  66. dfg April 1, 2011

    It’s Amazing !! My friend Janice tells me she is da t ing with a millionare!!

    🙂 🙂 :)~~ Lo ve Wealt hy * c0 m~~ is the c lub where she met her honey. It’s a place gathers CEOs, pro athletes, doctors, lawyers, investors, entrepreneurs, beauty queens, fitness models and Hollywood celebrities!

    You will be the next Janice. Go for it !!!

  67. GAGa April 1, 2011

    I don’t care what anyone else says she is the BEST American Idol

  68. PINKFRIDAY H** April 1, 2011

    Luv her..

  69. Toni April 1, 2011

    Of course she’s the best american idol!

    But it’s reducing to say that…because she’s just one of the best singers of all time (not just american idol)

  70. MRB April 1, 2011

    What is wrong with people and background singers! Fanny always sounds good but those background singers couldnt hit it like the album!!!!! I love Fannny!!! No matter what you say to bring her down! Her voice is one of the best ive ever heard! You cant mess with that type of soul!!!!!!

  71. MISHKA April 1, 2011

    I love her confidence ! And she sounded great.

    No matter the look , as long as the vocals are on point , I’m cool.

  72. DestinyBoston April 1, 2011

    shes been eatting alot of corn bread? jkjk

  73. Hudson Morrigan April 1, 2011

    She’s an ok singer but I just dislike the sound of her voice, I hope they don’t use her voice for the Mahalia movie coz Mahalia’s voice was way different…it would be like getting Fantasia to play Whitney…it just ain’t right.

  74. love this song April 1, 2011

    I never heard of this song until American Idol last night it was just okay to me but I woke up singing this s*** this morning. She getting better, she aint No Beyonce tho.

  75. dee April 1, 2011

    GET THE F*** OUT OF HERE YOU RIGHT FANTASIA IS NO BEYONCE SHES BETTER AND CAN SING 10 TIMES BETTER THAN HER ONCE AGAIN FANTASIA LOOKED NICE AND KILLED THAT SONG HER AND JORDIN SPARKS ARE THE BEST IDOLS F*** WITH IT THAT VOICE IS KILLING THE GAME RIGHT NOW

  76. dee April 1, 2011

    I DONT CARE WHAT ANYBODY SAY THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL MUSIC THIS SOUND LIKE SOME MUSIC BACK IN THE DAY AND THIS SONG IS VERY GOOD I LOVE THIS BALLED FANTASIA BE KILLING AND WISH THE BEST AND SHE LOOK BIG BUT NICE

  77. HELLO April 1, 2011

    It looks like JRecords and Fantasia accomplished their goal of getting the people back talking about Fantasia and her album. Her album soared back to Top 10 on iTunes and the song hasnt even been sent to radio. It will be sent on April 11th.

    Whether you dislike the song or love it, the point is YOU”RE TALKING ABOUT IT. Thats what music should be, a discussion about the lyrical content and overall feeling. Fantasia, people can talk crap about you all day, but it only shows that you have a special place in everyone’s heart because its your name that is rolling off their tounge.

    I am glad JRecords gave you a 3rd single because after a Grammy win you deserved it. This song will definantly go Top 10 on R&B. Mark my Words..

  78. Hudson Morrigan April 1, 2011

    The song’s lyrical content is incredibly stupid, did she write it? What an illitirate idiot.

  79. lisa April 1, 2011

    I KNOW THE TITLE IS SO ELEMENTARY AND COUNTRY THEY COULD OF KEPT THAT AND THE BLONDE DO NOT FIT HER AT ALL!

  80. #1234 April 1, 2011

    Only Fanny can pull this off.

  81. MuzikJunkie! April 1, 2011

    I LOVE Fantasia and she kills every performance she does! Her album is amazing! And yes I agree the best Idol contestant EVER! And you guys really need to stop hating because she looks and sound great!

  82. Gerren79 April 1, 2011

    Mangled belts? where did you hear that? Performance Was GREAT PERIOD!

  83. Annette April 1, 2011

    @Hudson Morrigan

    No she didn’t write it. It was written and produced by Warren “Oak” Felder and Andrew “Pop” Wansel.

    So I guess there are two other “illitirate idiots” out there getting well paid.

  84. Chile Please!! April 1, 2011

    I can’t see the performace (i’m at work & it’s blocked until i get home to see it) but you people are soooooooooo f****** crazy & don’t know a true singer or talent if it slapped you across your dome. Fanny is the truth she’s everything that a lot of artist needs to be right now & the whole package. I’m so tired of people praising Beyawnce & Rih Rih like their some Goddess. The only reason why people ride their Bra Straps is because they’ve been in the game a little longer & has all this fame & endorsements. But when you look at the big pic of who has the voice IMO fanny has the R&B SOUL voice who can pull off many genres of music. I’d like to hear Beywance or the Strangled Goat sing a song like this & put feeling & soul into it. YEAH RIGHT! Fanny do you MA because no one can touch you!

  85. True Blue April 1, 2011

    I only clicked on this post because I thought she was serving ACTUAL collard greens & cornbread.

  86. ashley April 1, 2011

    fantasia killed this she looked nice and sounded very good

  87. verionica April 1, 2011

    i feel this will be a big hit

  88. The King April 1, 2011

    How unfortunate that so many black people hate themselves…sad…Fantasia is the picture of fierce, raw, nubian beauty and those of us that have not been brain washed into thinking white is right and anything close to that is where it’s at can see this…love U Fantasia!!!!…cannot wait to see U live!!!.

  89. ANTHONY April 2, 2011

    WHO THE F*** IS PROMOTING THESE CDS…SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUT THIS OUT & THEN FOLLOWED UP WITH TEACH ME…IF THEY DNT PROMOTE THE F*** OUT OF CHRIS BROWN CD ILL BE F****** UPSET IF IT DNT SELL 2 MILLION IN AMERICA ALONE HE HAS TOO MANY HITS ON HIS CD

  90. PENNYDOLLAR April 2, 2011

    Well damn someone liked her performance because her album jumped to #8 on itunes R&B charts And Collard Greens & Cornbread jumped to #23 on itunes R&B. It was a hot performance ugly dress tho

  91. Jeffery April 2, 2011

    Fantasia at last performed like the star she showed she could be on American Idol. Once they got hold of her in the studio for her first albums they tried to make her like everyone else. She reminded me of a young Aretha Franklin with some Shirley Ceasar mixed in. The song is a perfect format for her to show her strengths and individuality. Although I’m a southern white boy who loves collard greens and cornbread I wish that phrase was different – don’t know what – but it was sort of silly – but she made it not seem so. She looked dynamic, royal, classic like all great divas do. But I do hope she loses the weight just for health reasons. She’s hot now, but she was really hot when she was slimmer too.

  92. NJSTANDUP April 2, 2011

    love the new look, hope she stays this way.

  93. dude April 3, 2011

    come on….that is the most ridiculous “song” ever….talk about corny…whewww…..and she sounds like Mickey Mouse singing

  94. verionica April 5, 2011

    FANTASIA SOUNDED GOOD

  95. SB April 19, 2011

    Loved this performance! Love this whole album, can’t wait to see what she does next.
