Lady Antebellum performed on their brand new son, ‘Bartender’ on the season 13 finale of ‘American Idol’ on May 21. The amazing band showed off their talent and really pumped the crowd up!

Lady Antebellum was on hand for the season 13 American Idol finale, where they marked the debut of their sassy new single, ‘Bartender.’  The band is part of a star-studded lineup that includes performances by Kiss, Jason Mraz, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles along with AI judges, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr, and Keith Urban.

Lady Antebellum Debuts ‘Bartender’ On ‘American Idol’

Lady A hit the stage and immediately pumped up the crowd with their new rocking women’s anthem, “Bartender.”

Fittingly, Hillary Scott, 28, gave a powerful lead vocal performance on this guaranteed instant summer hit!

We LOVED Lady A’s new song, too! Even though the song is about a break-up, it’s a super fun and catchy song about a girl who isn’t letting the pain get her down.

Instead, she decides to go out and celebrate by dancing and partying with her friends. Awesome!

We also have to mention how fantastic Hillary looked, especially since she gave birth to her baby girl less than one year ago!

Her sparkly ensemble was so much fun, and went along perfectly with Lady A’s new song.

Hillary Once Auditioned For ‘American Idol’

This performance must have been felt like a huge accomplishment for Lady A’s front woman Hillary, who not only auditioned for the reality show, but was rejected. Twice!

Lady Antebellum is super successful, so to come back and perform on the Idol stage — especially during the show’s huge finale episode — must have been SO rewarding.

After that amazing performance, the judges must be kicking themselves for not accepting the extremely talented and beautiful Hillary as one of their American Idol‘s.
