Ailing Bret Michaels performs on `Idol' finale

Ailing Bret Michaels performs on `Idol' finale

Though he has suffered from life-threatening health problems in recent weeks, ailing rock star Bret Michaels appeared in fine form on the "American Idol" stage.
The ailing 47-year-old former Poison frontman reality TV star sang and played guitar on Wednesday's star-studded season finale. Michaels joined "Idol" finalist Casey James on one of the band's biggest hits, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."
Michaels, who won this season's "Celebrity Apprentice" show last Sunday, suffered a brain hemorrhage in April. He was hospitalized again May 20 for what doctors called a "warning stroke" and diagnosed with a hole in his heart. Doctors said the conditions are likely unrelated.
He announced on his website this week that though he isn't 100 percent, but plans to continue his tour, starting Friday in Mississippi.
He said that seeing fans "rockin' rollin', smiling faces ... is the best medicine I can think of."
