Fantasia Barrino Sings Her New Single to Steven Tyler on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

Fantasia Barrino, 'American Idol'The hair and look may have been reminiscent of Chris Tucker's role on 'The Fifth Element,' but the voice was all Fantasia Barrino. The Season 3 winner of 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) made a return to the stage that made her famous with her new single, 'Collard Greens & Cornbread.'

Her latest album, 'Back to Me,' was released on August 24, 2010 to positive reviews and pushed Barrino to Number 2 for her debut week. Since then, though, the album has slowed and hasn't quite reached 500,000 units sold.

Hoping for another 'Idol' bump with her third single, Barrino sang like a classic R&B diva. She was confident and poised, and even had a few words of advice to the contestants. But before she spoke to them, she slipped "Steven Tyler, I love you" into the closing notes of her song.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.
