Watch: Fantasia Returns To ‘Idol’ / Soars With ‘Summertime’ & ‘I Believe’

Published: Friday 12th Feb 2016 by Sam

In the 12 years since Fantasia flew to victory on American Idol, the soulful songbird has made each subsequent appearance on the show count.

Last night was no exception.

Celebrating the show’s past (as it cruises towards its penultimate end), the vocal powerhouse performed two songs which cemented her in Idol history – ‘Summertime’ and her winners’ single ‘I Believe.’

The renditions were part of the  evening’s ‘Duets’ theme, as such Ms. Barrino was joined by favorites La’Porsha Renae and Jordan Sasser.

Watch after the jump…


I Believe

Ever dependable, Fantasia never disappoints. Great performances all round, although we must say there was touch too much rifting on La’Porsha’s part. Jordan, however, turned ‘I Believe’ into the most rousing of collaborations. Awesome.

    Beautiful ?

    Seeing a evolution of Fantasia and loving the circles she’s mixing in.

    She a singer that deserves to be singing on all the biggest shows on and off television.

    Leave that voice to shine and looking great doing it.

    Fantasia is a beast so I give both the singers props. Although La’Porscha did cut Fantastia off a couple of time. I think La’Porscha is awesome but she need to learn how to hold back. Trust and believe Harry will let her know.

    Fantasia is a legend in the making!!! She might of had her trouble in the media, but my god… I pray she gets another chance to make it to the big leagues, I want her on Grammy’s Tony’s and more, and she also deserves her own concert… With out any opener.. Because baby… Fantasia can book a stage and sell out

    Seeing her transform into A graceful and confident woman has been very amazing experience…Watching her speak life and positivity into other artist who are trying to make it and who are living her past struggles is just the beginning of what has become her evolution …This new team really seems like they great potential to take Fantasia to higher ground…She is the epitome of an “old soul” similar to how Whitney Houston was when performing , encountering other artist and upcoming talent….She speaks with inspiring knowledge and poise…Great duets she held back a bit on the first with Laporshe to let her get her well deserved shine but the second she owned her Finale song without taking away from the other contestant….Fantasia seems like the Artist who just wants to sing for the love of music and express her gift to world and can’t to see what she has in store!
