Wednesday (May 23) night’s two-hour finale of American Idol proved that no matter what age or size you are, rocking a catsuit is possible, just kidding. The head to head showdown between Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez wasn’t the only battle going on, on stage, Chaka Khan, 59, and Fantasia Barrino, 27, gave viewers a singing and wardrobe treat.

Chaka showed off her new sexy fit curves in a tight sequined catsuit and sang “Ain’t Nobody, Through the Fire” and I’m Every Woman,” while Fantasia showed off her thickness in a black sequined catsuit and sang a duet of Elton John’s “Take me to the Pilot” with Joshua Ledet. The two women sent Twitter off in a frenzy about who wore the catsuit the best.

When Chaka was asked if she would ever be a judge on Idol, she responded “Yeah, I’d do it, they could use some truth up there. A little bit of truth, honesty. I’d like that.” Hmm could that mean that they have a replacement for J. Lo if she decides to leave?

Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Aerosmith, Reba, Neil Diamond, John Fogarty, and a marriage proposal by Idoler Ace Young to Diana DeGarmo were among other performers at the finale.
