Fantasia wears catsuit outfit on ‘American Idol’ finale

Fantasia Barrino found a way to steal the spotlight on the “American Idol” finale Wednesday night, wearing a black skintight outfit that can best be described as some kind of catsuit-dress mash up.

And let’s just say Fantasia isn’t getting the most favorable fan reviews for her…creative outfit of choice.

Fantasia hit the stage on finale night to perform alongside Joshua Ledet. Before Joshua was eliminated after cracking the final 3, he told viewers that his favorite “American Idol” winner was Fantasia, who won the show’s third season. On Wednesday, the two got a chance to perform Elton John‘s “Take Me to the Pilot."

Both Fantasia and Joshua sing from the depths of their soul, and with that came some hamming it up towards the end of their performance, as they each interacted with the audience from opposite sidesof the stage.

Still, the quality of the performance will likely take a backstage to Fantasia’s outfit, with most viewers (certainly me) not only wondering aloud what exactly was Fantasia wearing, but who on her team thought it was a good idea to put her in that catsuit.

As for performances, Fantasia wasn’t the only big name to hit the stage on Wednesday. Chaka Khan, Rihanna, and Jennifer Holliday all performed on the “American Idol” finale, too.

You can watch Fantasia and Joshua’s performance to the left, where you can relive that unflattering outfit one more time.
