'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?

Skylar Grey talks penning 'I Need a Doctor,' her name change, and why her upcoming album may have a sound we've never heard before

Grey, who was also nominated for two Grammys for penning the Rihanna-sung chorus to Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” tells EW her team has since been bombarded with emails from people wanting to work together, but she declines to name names, because you never know which collaborations will actually happen. (For her Twitter followers who know Nikki Sixx reached out via tweet about writing a song together, she says he has spoken to her manager but nothing has been set up yet.)

Keeping her in the shadows during the Grammys performance—something new fan Shirley Manson questioned—was intentional, Grey says. “My whole roll-out as Skylar Grey has been this mysterious being,” says the artist formerly known as Holly Brook. (She released the 2006 album Like Blood Like Honey and the 2010 EP O’Dark Thirty under that moniker, her first and middle names.) “If you’ve seen the website, even the pictures are very shadowed because we’re slowly easing me out. I’m not a big fan of trying to be a sex symbol or any of that stuff because I really like the music to speak for itself. And so I wanted to make that clear from the very beginning.”  READ FULL STORY
