Michaels took the stage to sing “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” with finalist Casey James and stole the show. Wearing a Bob Marley “One Love” t-shirt, Michaels looked to be back to his old self, and happier than ever.
He told Us Magazine, "The doctors, I didn't tell them I was going to do this. I never told them I was coming here. They're going to find out in a few minutes!"
Bret said he didn’t even tell his family he was doing it either! But he had his reasoning— "Here’s the thing," he explained, "They have not said everything’s OK. I’m running about 75 percent realistically, physically, but in my soul and my heart, I feel great. I needed to do this tonight, just to come here.”
Bret said he felt so good on the stage that now he knows he wants to go back on tour. He said, "I got on stage, first of all, the fans and friends and family were all here. It was such an awesome feeling to see everyone screaming and cheering and singing along with the song. I was like, 'Hey, that’s three generations out there, that’s all I’ve wanted to do is have a great music career and to be able to do that, 20-some years later, that’s a great feeling.’”
We loved Bret’s performance last night! It was great to see him back to his old self, but we’d still like it if he took it easy for just a little while longer!
