After all these years, American Idol keeps making dreams come true.

Tyanna Jones & The Jackson Family: ‘American Idol’ Finale Performance
Tyanna made a major splash on this season of American Idol, and one of her most memorable performances came early in the season, doing Jackson 5’s “Rockin’ Robin” on the show’s competitive top 8 girls performance week.
For the joint performance, the talented lady was joined by the four Jackson brothers, and they sang a medley of “I Want You Back,” “ABC” and “Shake Your Body.” We can only imagine, now taking the stage on the finale, that singing alongside the real Jacksons must be just beyond surreal for Tyanna.
No, you’re crying!
The Jackson 5’s Tribute To Michael
The day before the Idol finale, on May 12, Marlon and Jessie dropped by Access Hollywood to chat about a few things, particularly their performance. The two also made sure to gush about how incredibly talented Tyanna is.
“She’s incredible, she’s great,” Marlon said. “She’s a little youngster,” he added. With that, host Billy Bush had to ask, since they’re performing with a youngster, would there be a tribute to the group’s original youngster, Michael Jackson?
Marlon said there would not be in any official sense, however, Jessie added that Tyanna “is such a great singer and she sounds like [Michael] a little bit too.”
What did you think of Tyanna’s performance with the Jacksons?
