Kelly Vs. Jordin! Fantasia Vs. Tamyra! Idol's Greatest Performance Tourney Continues!

The Great Lady Tour is the unofficial theme of today’s Round 3 matchups in TVLine.com’s American Idol All-Time Greatest Performance Bracket Tournament. We’ve got the winners of Season 1 and Season 6 in a head-to-head battle, while Season 3’s champ takes on the shock evictee of the show’s inaugural installment. How many devastating glory notes are delivered over the course of these four performances? Only a math major can tell us for sure.

Anyhow, once you’re done pondering the awesomeness of Kelly, Jordin, Fantasia, and Tamyra, you’ll need to get voting in the latest set of single-elimination faceoffs to decide which Idol Moments will become Quarterfinalists in our 64-player tourney. Every day around 1:00 p.m. ET over the next few weeks, we’ll launch a new set of duels to the death, so be sure to keep coming back and making sure your favorites advance.
