Fantasia returned to her "American Idol" roots Wednesday night (May 23), showing up on the music competition reality show to perform a duet with contestant Joshua Ledet. While her appearance on the show was a welcomed surprise, it was Fantasia's outfit choices for the evening that shocked viewers.

The 27-year-old North Carolina native graced the red carpet in a purple sequined gown, which didn't flatter her figure. While the dress did hug her curves, it looked to be too big around her neckline and shoulders.

Later on in the show, when Fantasia teamed up with Ledet to sing a cover of Elton John's "Take Me to the Pilot," she did a complete wardrobe change. The Back to Me creator tossed evening wear aside to don a glittering red-and-black catsuit with high slits riding up her thighs. As a result, her tattooed skin was on display for all to see.
