Watch Tom’s Performance on The American Idol Finale!

May 27th, 2011 | By TomJones

Tom took to the Nokia Theater on Wednesday night for the American Idol Finale. He was part of a medley which included the ‘Top 13′ boys singing a collection of hits including ‘Kiss’, ‘She’s A Lady’, ‘What’s New Pussy Cat’, ‘Green Green Grass of Home’ and ‘Delilah’. All building up to the grand unveil where Tom joined them on stage to sing “It’s Not Unusual”.

Tom tore down the house and after reading the members comments it seems we all watched in awe!

    I’m from the planet that has the USA on it. i did not say Tom does not tour here, he plays mostly small places like the House of Blues and some small theaters. Not many, if any arenas, not here at least. name an arena show hes done on the last 5 years that he has played here in the states. The rest of my comments above speakt to the fact that he is a big that should be playing huge places if it wre not for his career guidance here in the states. I hope that changes soon.

  7. Tricia says:

    Just loved seeing you on American Idol. You voice is still one of the greatest. We all miss seeing you tour the US and can’t wait to see again. Miss seeing you perform in Vegas. Hurry back to us real soon. With Love.

    May I wish you a very happy birthday next week. I have followed your career since 1964 when you released Chills & Fever, sadly it bombed but I’m not ashamed to say I liked, bought it & played it to death. Never mind Tom, you’ve more than made up for it since.
    So a HUGE THANKYOU for some terrific renditions over the years. Have a great day with your family & we’ll see you soon.

  9. Tom, you look & sound as wonderful as ever. It’s been way too long since I’ve seen you .. Miss your voice, miss your face, miss you!!!!! Stay well. xoxoxo

  10. Deborah says:

    Tom..For many years you know that I’ve always called you out LUV
    when I hand you the red rose and you would kiss me.That is what I will cherish for lifetime and have been avid fan of yours since you appeared at Cow Palace s.f. ’65-69′
    When are you coming down to southern california? I used to live down by Silicon Valley.
    I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you,TOM !!!!

  11. Diane says:

    Fantastic performance, great to see Sir Tom on American Idol, now maybe he’ll get the recognition, in the US, that he so deserves. TJ you look amazing! Waiting for you next Las Vegas concert!

  12. bobbig says:

    please sing that slow rendition of Delilah in your concerts in the
    USA I just love it. Love at your own risk. ,MissBobbiG

  13. bobbig says:

    i just saw a quick quib of a slow rendition of delilah and i just l
    oved it i hope sir tom sings it like that in other uUSA concerts.

  14. I know Tom and his management think they always know what is good for Toms career. I hope they see this. First of all, Tom Jones performance was spectacular on American Idol.There was not one performer old or new that could get close. He still has it, even more then ever. The greatest voice, the look, the coolness and the presence. You could feel it through the television. You could see it on the faces of the people in the audience, from the very young to the older. He had them all under his spell. And the proof is in there reaction and the input all over the internet.
    Now it is time to resurect his once powerful career again back in the states. Record a new album that people want to hear, promote it properly.Get out and tour, look as perfect as he did on American Idol on stage all the time. Do all the hits and add inject new stuff. Give the fans what they want to hear. Don’t monoplize the concerts and albums with all the material from one album. People want the excitement, the cool, the VOICE. The bigger then life image. The USA loves Tom Jones and wants him back. Not at the HOUSE OF BLUES, but at large theaters and arenas.It’s time to get to work. If management needs suggestions feel free to contact me through my web site. Thank you. Nick

    ¡¡¡SIR TOM JONES ES UNICO¡¡¡

    Sir Tom, you are still the best!
    What a beautiful voice that gets richer with age.
    You will never lose your charm and sex appeal.

  19. Debra Wilson says:

    Thanks for putting the guys medley of TJ songs as well as Tom’s performance on the website! It was nice to be able to watch them again…and again…and again!!!
    Sir Tom, you were GREAT as always!!! My sisters and I saw you in Naples, FL this year and we are still smiling from having had the oportunity to see you perform live!!! Your concert was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

  20. Vicky says:

    love this performance! so good to see you

  21. RickySchultz says:

    Sir Tom served it!

    Every time you walk into the ring, you go for the knockout! You can see from the video that Steven Tyler, and Randy were visibly moved by your performance, as they saw a master at his craft.

    So, Tom, did you get your audience rush from that performance, or what? It takes a lot to bring a tear to Steven Tyler’s eye, but you did… he was as giddy as a schoolgirl hanging on your every note!

    The 13 boys were nice kids, and I wish them well, however, they sounded like an average bunch of fraternity boys singing after hoisting a few.

    Good show Sir Tom, Good show!

  22. JonesGirl says:

    Those boys could not hold a candle light to you….

  23. Usha Meister says:

    Tom rules. Even after all these years there is the pitter patter in my heart when i see him live on television or in person. You were awesome on Amercian Idol and American Idol did you proud in giving you that tribute. All the boys together could not produce THE VOICE one man consistently. Great job Tom.

  24. Usha & Chuck Meister says:

    Tom on American Idol was the show stopper no doubt. When the boys were into their second TJ song I knew that it was a tribute to the great icon of music, “The Voice’ and before long he would make his majestic appearance. The evergreen voice, with his handsome ( forget 70) looks, greatvoice and a suit only he do full justice to was pure DYNAMITE. Long live TJ. Love you. Please come to Hamilton, Ontario. We miss you. Love you

  25. FrederikkeTJfan says:

    Tom Jones you were fantastic on American Idol !! :D !! I can´t wait to see you at The Skanderborg Festival i Denmark !! :D !!

  26. Lori Jane Day says:

    Dear Sir Tom Jones,
    My Mom, La Verne Day was one of the original “Tom Jones” girls. She saved her change in a cigar box to go and see you in Las Vegas and everywhere you traveled. Needless to say, she did not pay for me to go to college ((( laughing))) . You would “know” all of them as they were up front and personal. And I grew up front and center stage. Thank You and I “wish” we could travel once more to see you perform. Although she is gone now, I ever hear her in your music.

    All my love,
    Lori

  27. Jones Girl says:

  28. ELISE JONES says:

    YOU SAID YOU WOULD COME IF YOU WERE INVITED. I’M INVITING YOU TO OAHU HAWAII. SEE YOU SOON.
    ALOHA ELISE JONES
