Fantasia Has Red Hair, Doesn't Bore Me

Fantasia performs her new single “Bore Me” during Wednesday’s results show of American Idol.

The American Idol Season 3 winner shocked viewers with her bright red hair and a black bejeweled jumpsuit. The best reaction came from Simon Cowell, who sat at the judges table looking aghast and his mouth agape. Like, did that really happen?

Watch the video of Fantasia‘s performance below!

  • Moe

    She looks like a rooster….

  • jawz on d flure

    Classic. He looked like his dog was just hit by a bus.

  • hoh?!

    who’s her stylist/ make up artist? they should be sacked!

  • http://www.mana.com.mx XxMANAXx

    LMAO @ Simon’s reaction. Fantasia was a mess. She was Season 3 winner? The only talents to come out of the show are Kelly and Carrie. DAUGHTRY is good too but he didnt even win.

    I love Simon. Close your mouth LOL. Fasia doesn’t care what the hell anyone thinks. LOVE HER. Hair!!!!! I wouldn’t try it. Doesn’t look great on her either. But She’s an entertainer. Boy does she have ENERGY!!!!!

  • pt

    not very attractive

  • Courtney

    Simon is sitting there thinking what the hell just happened and is that really the girl who won this show?

  • tissekone

    I find that woman to be utterly gross!
    No class, no nothing. Pure vulgar ghetto. Watching her prance around with that red hair and braces on her teeth made me embarrased on her behalf.

  • aussie luke

    incredible performance. wow!

    red hair looks awersome – it makes her more interesting as a performer.

  • Suzy q

    Hot Tranny Mess…and not in a good way! YIKES!

  • Shjuania

    Her performance was great! Kelly and Carrie are not the only AM idol talent from this show. Fantasia is a performer. She is young and she has a right to try new look, that’s what an entertainer does. Her vocal ranges are remarkable. She can’t satisfy everyone
    ! U go gurl!

  • chantall

    omj! wat did she do to her self? im embarrased she was in the apple blossom parade, and so was i and i already knew her hair was like this…. it sucks!

  • O.M.G.

    HER HAIRDO IS BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!

    SHE LOOKS GREAT AND THAT FAB-TASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IT IS ALL ABOUT BEING INNOVATIVE WHENEVER THE CHANCE!!!!

  • http://msn lips, tits ass OH WTF.

    Love her.

  • lainey

    I thought it was spectacular. A big shock, but what a superstar. I couldn’t figure out Simon’s reaction, whether it was a good reaction or bad. She is a brilliant performer!!! The hair was wild, but she’s a celebrity so she can do what she wants. Her voice reminded me a little bit of Mary J.

  • rob

    she actually performed?? seems all she did was jump around and scream….. did u really hear any acutal singing? fox could have at least shown more of the background singers thier dresses were so short and rode up very nicely….now THAT was worth the price of admission…..

  • ac

    That performance was not entertaining. It was embarrassing and shocking. I think the majority of the country probably had the same expression as Simon. Fantasia gives the music industry a bad name.

  • gypsy marie

    Not a fan of the hair…but the performance was “neat”. I enjoyed it. Don’t think they should have focused on simons face. Rude! And she doesn’t seem ghetto at all. She seems overly sweet and down to earth!

  • http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1495968/ JUC

    i saw that and her dancing sucked and so did her singing. come on she was american idol for petes sake!

  • Maria (Shorty)

    To me, now this is just my opinion, the ONLY American Idol winner is Kelly. She can sing ANYTHING! The others are just ‘mini’ Idols. HA! HA! Oh, don’t get me started on the hair colour. YUCK!!

  • mesquite,tx

    she looks even more butch now. just come out of the closet already.

  • Jennifer W

    I didnt like Fantasia even when she was on idol and she really did a bad performance on idol yesterday.

  • paupau

    who cares about the hair color people??? still getting shocked by red hair? grow up!!! what about the…”weird” performance??? I think simon’s face represented the millions of people’s face watching it having…. convulsions? I didnt watch AI when she won, but I kept thinking… “she won?”

  • Shelby

    That was awful. The singing, dancing and her appearance were all ridiculously awful. I didn’t watch the season she was on, thankfully!

  • Sinna

    Was that singing or screaming. I did not understand one word she was singing. Please, those of you who said she looks great, must have really bad taste buds or need to get your eyes check, cause she looks a hot ghetto tranny mess. She’s not much to look at, and she’s making herself look even more unattractive with that burgandy red mess on her head. I was truly embarrassed for her just watching that.

  • MelliSa

    RED HaiR iZ nOt 4 herr…Sum1 plZ paSs oN da mesSage!

    Mellii..
    RiP..GramPii..!

  • pinkydoo

    When she first came out and I saw her red hair, I said to my husband,”oh no.” But that was nothing compared to the dreadful performance. I hardly understood a word she sang and she acted like somebody who was manic! I thought she was on drugs. That was not something I expected from her at all. I think she should go back to singing softer ballads. I think that is more her speed.

  • kiwi

    Wow, i can’t believe how many people are freaked out by bright red hair. OMG, have you all been living under rocks. What must you think of tatoos, peircings, etc…
    She is a true artist which showed in her performance last night.
    All of you who thought it was appalling need to remove that stick that is up your butts!

  • http://fatalfashionattraction.blogspot.com/ danz

    Hmm…well it looks a lot better than the skunk hair.

    CHECK OUT YOUR GIRL!

    They Promised The Moon, The Stars, And Heaven Above. And just like Charlie Brown I got a rock.

    As a songwriter who’s parents were songwriters, like them I write because I love it. It’s never been about the money. But when the NUMBER ONE SHOW ON TELEVISION says they’re looking for some amateur to write the Next Great American Idol Finale Song. Wow! The first thing that crossed my mind was…..MILLIONS! Millions of people. Millions of cd’s. Millions of dollars. Millions. I’m betting I’m not the only one…….of Millions.

    It’s Time For Some Answers!
    This is the second year in a row that American Idol has had a songwriting contest. Since the contest ended last year I’ve researched the contestants from last year and this year….FYI there were over 25,000 entries last year at $10.00 for each song. 20 songs were then chosen out of the 25,000 for an online vote. The winner’s song is then performed on the American Idol Finale. The problem I have is that one of THIS years Top 20 Songwriting Finalist is a Co-writer of LAST years Top 20 Songwriting Winner. Somebody from American Idol has some explaining to do.

    If you want proof of fraud.

    By the way….Why aren’t you reporting this?

  • like

    She looks ok. Did you see more about her? She has a nice profile with hot pics on a single’s club named ‘rich ki ss . c om’. She’s attractive, sexy and popular there. Maybe you can check it out.

  • care

    end

  • KiMmy

    i was pretty much speechless…
    same is simon haha

  • Tracey

    True, she really did yell alot in that song and stomp around. She has kind of gotten weird over the few years I think…..I have never thought she was very attractive anyways, and her hair color doesnt do her much justice either.

  • http://JJ.COM BLIP

    IT’S A FREAK SHOW BABY BABY ON THE DANCE FLOOR ..FREAK

    SHOW.. SHE REMINDS ME OF THE FREAKY GUY IN THE 5TH

    ELEMENT..NO WONDER SHE’S NOT DOING VERY

    WELL……….YYYYYYYYYYYUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKKKKK!!

  • oh snap!

    i love her song BUT THAT HAIR GOTTA GO!

  • Victoria

    Hate the look. Her back up singers did all the singing. All she did was screech and yeah, yeah, yeah. Simon’s face was priceless.

  • tequila

    couldn’t stand to watch the video….had to turn it off. Hate her voice. i’m not surprised her records sold poorly.

  • Fantastic

    She stunned, she shocked, she rocked!! Such energy. She’s got everybody “buzzing”. She is what you call an “entertainer”. So unpredictable! So versatile! She gave the audience a high energy performance last night. She added excitement to a show that “Bore[d] Me” otherwise. She didn’t come out there to “bore” everybody by just singing a tired old song like “Summertime”. Everybody knows she can do that! Do an engine search under Fantasia You Tube and watch her perform “Always On my Mind”, or “I Believe” or “I Am Here”. Versatility # 1. Her hair was most appropriate for her venue last evening. She illustrated the difference between an American Idol “used to be” and an ARTIST who is stretching out.And I don’t understand people who say she “hasn’t made it.” She just got off a Broadway his show and is now about to release another album.

  • sandie

    Crazy woman.
    I guess she has the guts to look ridiculous.

  • ROSLYN DACY

    LOVE HER, LOVE HER LOVE . I AM NOT TO CRAZY ABOUT THE HAIR , I LIKE THE BLONDE BETTER . NO MATTER WHAT SHE WEARS OR HOW SHE WEARS IT SHE CAN SING HER ASS OFF BETTER THAN THESE STUDIO SINGER THAT ARE OUT NOW . FANTASIA KEEP GOING TO THE TOP , YOUR SYLE OF SINGING APPEALS TO ALL PEOPLE ,NO MATTER WHAT THE AGE GROUP. AS LONG AS THERE ARE PEOPLE SOMEONE IS ALWAYS GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY, NO MATTER WHAT GOOD OR BAD, SHE IS GOOD SINGER AND PERFORMER. NOBODY CAN’ T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HER. GOD HAS BLESSED HER .NEGATIVE WORDS ONLY MAKE YOU BETTER

  • gmd

    She looks awful and at her age she really shouldn’t hav done the whole braces thing, but I think simon wsa in awe of her performance…not appauled. even paula gave her a standing ovation, and simon began to clap with a “wow” look on his face. she really put a lot into that performance and yes, she screamed, but so does tina and beyonce…and the latter also growls.

  • nancy

    She was awful. She is trashy. She didn’t sing at all, her backup singers did most of the singing while she threw in some noises and screams once in a while. It was unbearable to watch. I agree with Simon!!!

  • Wendy

    GMD….. Simon was definitely appalled. That was NOT a good look on his face. And if you rewatch the video, Paula’s look wasn’t much better.. she just has the grace to stand up and applaud.

    That was the most god-awful thing I have ever seen on stage. Her hair was quite obviously red to complete the picture of the rooster style head movements and frantic dancing that she was completing. And she definitely did not sing during any of that. Yeah yeah yeah in that whiny screech doesn’t qualify as singing.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible. Yes, she had bundles of energy… but so do dogs in heat.

  • Samanthia

    Fantasia should do away with the hair style and color! It does not do anything for her appearance. They definitley made her a GHETTO chic. How horrible!

  • erin

    wow she looks….

    2:45 simons face is priceleess…it’s like hes saying “wow i can’t believe im associated with this show”

  • tate
