Fantasia“s showing on American Idol this week saw many catch the Holy Ghost. However, the ever-humble singer was full of praise for one of her own heroes – judge Mariah Carey.
Fresh from rocking the house with “Lose To Win”, the 2004 Idol champ chatted it up backstage about her performance, new album “Side Effects Of You”, and what Mimi means to music.
Peep the interview after the jump…
On a bit of a random note, are we the only ones who think a Fanny/Mimi collaboration would be hot tamale?! Ms. Carey-Cannon has spent of her latter career enlisting with rapper-after-rapper. We”d love to see her do away with the industry”s thirst for “political pairings” and simply serve up fresh fire…something a collabo with Ms. Barrino or any of the other “new breed” of vocalists would be (see: Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, and the like).
