Jamie Foxx Eased the Pain of Naima Adedapo’s Idol Exit

Getting booted off of American Idol has gotta hurt. But according to Naima Adedapo, her Idol elimination was softened by a guest performance from Jamie Foxx that seemed tailor made for her. The similarities between the African drums and dance-heavy performance of Foxx and will.i.am’s song “Hot Wings” and Naima’s rendition of “Dancing In the Street” the week before made her send-off just that much easier.

Said Naima, “[That performance] was for me! It felt like my exit parade! I was like, 'I'm happy! It doesn't even matter now. I'm happy!' I wanted to jump over the couch and get it in with them. They did such a wonderful job. ... I was yelling the whole time.” If only she had! We would’ve loved to see Naima throw a few of her high kicks into the mix.

We’re glad she ended her Idol run on a high note!
