Beyoncé premieres new song on American Idol finale

Beyoncé used her appearance on last night's American Idol finale to debut a brand new song from her forthcoming album, '4'

The track is a piano driven ballad called '1+1' and really showcases her vocal ability, which after the release of the energetic and club-appropriate lead single, 'Run The World (Girls)', is refreshing to hear.

The melody is challenging but she tackled it with ease and passion, and it was met with a great reception from the crowd.
