Viral Video: Bret Michaels's Rosy Thorn on "Idol"

BoomTown is not much of a fan of Bret Michaels, but it was still nice to see the singer and reality star in good form on television talent show “American Idol” last night after a spate of troubling health issues.

Michaels was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage a month ago and just last week, was back in the hospital due to a “warning stroke.” Heart surgery is to come next.

Still, he managed to belt out “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” a hit song from his band, Poison, which he sang with finalist Casey James.

Enjoy the video:
