'American Idol': Diddy-Dirty Money and Skylar Grey perform 'Coming Home.' Your thoughts?

The American Idol results show performance machine has been relaunched for season 10: Diddy-Dirty Money and Skylar Grey kicked it off by singing their thoughtful, haunting hit “Coming Home” last night. I’m a huge fan of this song and thought it was a great way to get back into these results-show performances, which sometimes can be rather lackluster. Loved seeing Skylar at the piano. (Does anyone get Posh Spice vibes from her?) Loved the vintage photos behind Diddy on stage. Loved figuring out (finally!) who Dirty Money is.

Watch the clip after the jump and tell me: What’d you think?

    I was more excited for the Diddy/ J.Lo reunion.

    • Jill S

      OMG – I didn’t even put 2 and 2 together! One word: Awkward!

  • Ann

    I wonder how that reunion with Diddy and JLo went. She is the one that got away..

    • Elle

      No. I believe she was the one who ran away. Like a toddler out of a burning building.

        This was amazing and PolygamyDate was brilliant

  • Bree

    I hate this song so I didnt really enjoy the performance. I do like the girls of Dirty Money. I hope they make an album.

  • KH

    I like the song & I like that Diddy tried to do something different with it. I really think he begged to be on the show to pimp his tour- not very exciting. Now if were Dannity Kane …

    Diddy and JLo reunion was as good as a poop sandwich so was the performance except for Skylar Grey she was great as always. JLo didnt like the song as much as Randy did, he was so into it I thought they had bumped uglies.

    The women singing with whatever he is calling himself in order to try being relevant were great. Him—I am so tired of muliti millionaire hip-hop artists of his ilk whining and being self indulgent in their music.

    • Mek

      I’m not disagreeing with you, but what about this particular song was “self indulgent”? I’m just wondering…

  • StableLife

    Loved the performance!
    Wished I could see it again.

  • bored to tears

    Yuck. Diddy-whatever-he’s-calling-himself-lately sucks. How can people enjoy watching folks shout and pace on stage as they make stupid poses and grab themselves repeatedly? If that’s what we call talent these days, no wonder any loser can get up and perform. The lady on the piano was nice.

      I COMPLETELY AGREE!! Skylar Grey at the piano was AWeSOME….Diddy whatever piddy…needs to finally just accept he can’t sing or whatever it is he does!

      • Schiem

        I believe $380 million says that he can sing.

  • Jill S

    Steven Tyler loved it. After it was over didn’t he mouth to JLo, “He’s good!”

  • TV_Pete

    I enjoyed Skylar Grey. Not so much with Diddy.

  • La’Keau Shenea

    ii think they did an awesome performance..Skylar Grey rocks,,she is my idol:)!!

    • Samee

      Great song & they sounded great. Interesting considering J.Lo connection. Love Skyar Grey! What a talent – voice, writer and collaborator!

      • Laura

        I like your texts very much. That is why I like to use them in my paper, if it is possible. I am irtenesting in that topic, therefore I need you help. Please, say YES. Thank You.

  • Hilaryy

    Love Love Love. I’m so excited to see Skylar doing well after all these years,and Diddy knows how to do what he does. Great job by them!

  • Molly M M

    The ladies of Dirty Money drowned out Skylar, which is a shame, ’cause she is amazing.

  • heelermama

    I didnt hear A.I. mention Skylar Grey. He introduction to the song was the hook and no one gave her credit. bad bad
    I thought about the reunion and thought how odd that may have been and why would Idol to that anyway with all the other artist;or,why not just Ms. Grey on her own.

  • Nicole

    Loved Skylar’s performance! Just as great as when she performed with Eminem and Dr. Dre at the Grammy’s. Can’t wait for her solo album!
