Who’s ready for a diva-off? Yes, folks, it’s Round 2, Day 2 of TVLine.com’s American Idol All-Time Greatest Performance Bracket Tournament, and we’ve got the Season 6 champ facing off against the Season 5 runner-up, a pair of beloved fourth-place finishers in a heated duel, and two of the show’s most vocally powerful winners (Kelly and Fantasia) going up against upstarts from Seasons 9 and 10. Steel yourselves, Idoloonies, because you’ve got tough choices ahead. Then again, nobody ever said it would be easy to pare down the field in our 64-player tourney, which is composed of the most electrifying moments in the 10-season history of Fox’s ratings behemoth. It’s your job to vote in these single-elimination faceoffs, and decide which 16 Idol Moments advance to our third round.
Every day around 1:00 p.m. ET over the next few weeks, we’ll launch a new set of duels to the death that will have you joyously reliving your favorite Idol moments and biting your nails wondering how in the heck you’re gonna choose between ’em.
Before you head to the polls, you may want to peruse these memory-refreshing links to the performances entering the ring this afternoon:
Fantasia Barrino, ”Summertime” (Movie Night)
Kendra Chantelle, “Georgia on My Mind”
La Toya London, “Don’t Rain On My Parade”
