It was a diva face-off on the season finale of ‘American Idol’! Mariah and JLo went head-to-head on the ‘Idol’ stage and both singers gave killer performances! Which diva songstress did you like better?
There’s only room for one diva on the American Idol stage! Former judge Jennifer Lopez returned to the Idol stage to perform her new single “Live It Up.” JLo wasn’t the only powerhouse songstress who took the stage during the finale, current Idol judge Mariah Carey also performed with a medley of some of her greatest hits!
Mariah Carey Performs Medley Of Her Songs
During the season finale, Mariah turned the tables and traded her seat at the judges table for a spot on the Idol stage. During her performance, Mariah donned a gorgeous white mermaid gown and looked absolutely stunning!
She took her place at the microphone and emotionally belted a medley some of her biggest hits including “Vision of Love,” “Make It Happen,” “My All,” “Hero,” “We Belong Together,” and her new single “#Beautiful.”
Jennifer Lopez Performs ‘Live It Up’
JLo took the stage and gave a very different performance than Mariah’s soulful medley. Pitbull joined JLo on the stage to sing their new single “Live It Up,” which is sure to be the next dance club hit!
While Pitbull rapped, JLo gave a dance-heavy performance sporting a skimpy white dress with knee-high boats. JLo’s back up dancers performed cool acrobatics on swings lining the stage. JLo perfectly balanced showing off her seductive dance moves and singing the lyrics to the song, giving an overall great performance!
Interestingly, Idol producers gave JLo the prime performance spot right before the big reveal, while Mariah performed in the beginning of the show. Could FOX possibly be trying to butter JLo up so she’ll return as a judge next year? Mariah didn’t look too thrilled.
