Derulo, who performed for the first time since his neck injury last year, brought fans to their feet when he sang his new song Undefeated and the pop star took to his Twitter account to express his excitement.

"1st time performing since my neck injury 2night on idol finale! THANK YOU to the fans that help me write this song #UNDEFEATED," Derulo posted. "It's been 2 wks since I took my neck brace off! Still gonna make it happen tonight! NEVER GIVE UP! NEVER LET UP! #UNDEFEATED."

The song, which allowed fans to vote for their favorite lyrics, was part of Coca Cola's "Perfect Harmony" program and the pop star certainly enjoyed the interactive songwriting process.

"The fans got to help me write the song," Derulo said. "I started writing the song, but I left a bunch of lines blank and the fans have been helping me fill in the lines. There were tons and tons of great stuff, but we got it down and I believe we came up with the best product!"
