Last night was all about the ladies! And though the elimination round of American Idol is never fun for anyone (except maybe those that remain), we were beaming as two legendary women returned.

Fantasia — the winner of American Idol’s third season nine years ago — returned to the place where it all began to perform her track Lose To Win!

Ch-ch-check out her performance (above)!!

But who was the second lady that took the Idol stage? It was a HUGE surprise! Find out…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

This is sooooo much better than we expected!

It's been nearly a decade since Fantasia Barrino came out on top on American Idol, but she's emerging triumphant once again!

We are still shocked and dismayed by the homophobic and hateful comments she uploaded to Instagram last December, but Without Me is still a quality jam!!

We just love what the fiercely ferocious Missy Elliott and the stunningly perfect Kelly Rowland add to the mix!!!

Ch-ch-check out Fantasia's club-tastic new cut for yourselves (above)!

Hopefully this hawt new track means she is focusing her attention on making great music instead of conjuring up bigoted philosophies which only served to alienate some of her fans!!

We can't wait to see these three ladies in Without Me's official vid!!!

Elton John, Jennifer Hudson, Carly Rae Jepsen, Usher, Kelly Rowland & MANY MORE Wish Perez 'Happy Birthday!' Watch HERE!

We're still feeling the love from our party!!

As we've shown you in photos and video, our 35th Birthday Pajama Party was the sweetest one yet — filled with all our best friends and most loving family.

Grateful really doesn't even begin to explain it.

Ch-ch-check out the super thoughtful video that was presented to us, featuring celebs like Elton John and Carly Rae Jepsen wishing us a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY (above)!!!

We want to extend a very big thank you to all of them, including Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Rowland, Taylor Swift, Florence Welch, The Saturdays, Usher, Kerli, Fantasia, Darren Criss, Matisyahu, Kacey Musgraves, Jewel, Kristin Chenoweth, and all the others who took the time out of their busy shedzules to send us good vibes on our 35th!

You made our night so very bright! THANK YOU!!

Fans were shocked when they saw the (above) pic of Fantasia Barrino on her Instagram account along with a fairly homophobic caption against gay marriage.

Idol Loser Joshua Ledet Finds A Different Stage?

Joshua Ledet And Rachel Crow Male Stripper American Idol

In this era of high unemployment, fallback jobs are a GREAT idea!

Joshua Ledet just needs to be careful while he’s falling back, though. We wouldn’t want him to land on anything pointy!!

The bad news: America Ryan Seacrest has spoken and Josh is not this season’s American Idol.

The good news: A male strip club in New York called “Mantasia” is offering Josh a job flashing his dancing on the pole!

See, folks joshing with Josh have given him the moniker “Mantasia” since many think he sings like a more masculine version of Fantasia BarrinoIdol’s third champion.

So the NYC "sausage factory" thinks ladies would love to see “Mantasia” take the stage AT Mantasia. That’s just cray cray enough to work!

Josh, buddy, we support you doing whatever it takes to put food on the table!!

Good luck! We always knew you were destined for the main stage!!
