Other things such as those spangly, sparkly, uber-fitted catsuits worn by Chaka Khan and former "Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino.
Each vocal powerhouse took the stage to perform during the season 11 finale, with Chaka donning a rust-colored number that showed off svelte curves as she rocked to her top hits along with some backup from the top 12 women finalists on "I'm Every Woman."
Perhaps a stylist backstage was trying to turn the show into a theme night, because Fantasia stepped onto the stage wearing a painted-on black, glittering catsuit as she performed "Take Me to the Pilot" along with Joshua Ledet. What seemed to catch most viewers off guard were the cut-outs running down both legs.
Khan showed off her newly reduced figure which had the world of social media all abuzz wondering what method she had used to slim down. The YBF.com reported recently that the sultry singer had shed 60 pounds and that was evident during her "Idol" appearance.
It looks like Chaka won this round of bodysuit-battle, and the legend told Zap2It on the red carpet Wednesday that she wouldn't mind being an "Idol" judge, should a seat at the judges' table become available. (In other words, Jennifer Lopez, you might want to make a decision.)
"Yeah, I'd do it," Ms. Khan said. "They could use some truth up there."
