As part of American Idol’s season finale, which includes special performances from judges Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry as well as duets with other top 10 performers from the show, Ada Vox and “New Attitude” singer Patti LaBelle performed LaBelle’s iconic hit “Lady Marmalade” last night and we’re still speechless.

Yass, queen. Though it had been three weeks since we’ve seen the South San High School alum (Adam Sanders out of drag) perform on the show (after facing elimination) Ada Vox strutted back onto the American Idol stage donning a Christina Aguilera (circa “Lady Marmalade”-era) inspired cornrows and curled hair with a gold corset and black tulle. Lots of black tulle.

After singing the intro, Vox introduces Patti LaBelle, who came out serving some Mary J. Blige vibes with her blonde hair and black suit.

Watch their performance below:

The two shared the spotlight, trading off vocal runs without overshadowing each other before ending the performance with a hug.



Though Vox only made it to the top ten, this performance only reaffirmed what we already knew. Ada Vox is a star and she’s only just begun to slay.
