Her husband Kendall Taylor took to the American Idol alum's Instagram with a photo of the singer — who is currently on tour with Charlie Wilson and Johnny Gill — resting in the hospital (above) with the caption:

"Speaking on behalf of my wife: "She walks as a powerful force in the earth. Impacting everything she touches and encounters. I love her determination and sheer will power to not accept defeat on any level. She complains little, but so sacrifices much! But there are times when our Father intentionally slows us down to reflect and hear from Him. My Wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm. She's steady asking the Doc "Can I perform tonight?" But we must be wise and realize this isn't a race, but rather a marathon. So Memphis, our team is already working to create a means that she can redeem this time with you. She had something truly special planned for tonight. So please, keep my Queen lifted in prayer, asking our God to heal her rapidly with no last negative affects. Rock Soul won't be denied, this is simply a delay that will prove to be necessary for what's to come. We love you all and thank you for your understanding and support! #WeaponsMayForm #NoneShallPropser"

And while we're not sure of the specifics of her accident, her rep told People:

"Fantasia suffered a minor accident yesterday afternoon and is resting comfortably. At this moment, our plan is to resume the tour in Los Angeles on Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater. She thanks all of her fans for their kind messages of love and support, and is looking forward to getting back out on the road."

Here's to a speedy recovery!!!

"Remember Kaitlyn — we all thought she was gonna go with Nick, and she picked Shawn on The Bachelorette. Jennifer Hudson lost on American Idol — our fellow Americans voted for Fantasia!

Stars arrive for American Idol Farewell Season Finale.

It's so hard to say goodbye. But we must.

The American Idol Farewell Season Finale took place in LA Thursday night, bringing all the nostalgia with past winners and contestants showing up on the red carpet.

Led by Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, and Fantasia in shimmering, impossible-to-miss gowns, it was truly a wondrous night.

J.Lo was in full diva mode, naturally, with her princess-inspired Elie Madi sparkling gown featuring a buoyant high-low hem that extended all the way down to the floor.

She's the queen of Idol and we don't care if she wasn't there from the very beginning!

Of course Carrie Underwood was total royalty herself in an embellished Yanina Couture number with sheer skirt that showed off her always enviable legs.

And Fantasia also stepped it up in a silver glittering gown with low neckline and leg slit. She seriously lived up to her name, looking like a fantasy and all!

However, these three were certainly not the only showstoppers, as Jordin Sparks, Katharine McPhee, and Pia Toscano also made heads swivel (below).
