"American Idol" fashion blast: Paula Abdul is back, Janet Jackson is drop-dead gorgeous.

Yay, yay, yay, Paula is back in tribute to Simon Cowell. How we’ve missed her weird clap, imperfect delivery, and yes, her sometimes eyebrow-raising sense of fashion.

On the big finale – she looked great and gave us something to talk about. How to describe? Think a really pretty, coral lollipop.

Her tiny little mini featured a perfect- fitting boned bodice and an explosion of a skirt adorned with gigantic fabric roses. F-U-N.

And even though Paula is tiny, it looked like she had miles of leg. Finally, someone had good chemistry with Simon and we find ourselves agreeing when Simon said, “I’ve missed this little one.”

Holy hotness! Could Janet Jackson look any more beautiful or sexier?

First up, a cleavage revealing black gown with sparkly epaulettes, lined in deep red with fishnet insets. Her hair tightly pulled back – well, there was a whole serene goddess look about her.

The unwrapping of Janet behind a scrim prefaces the next number and out she struts in a painted on catsuit with wide fishnet insets. Devilish.

Ooh, Miss Jackson is definitely no stranger to her elliptical machine --nasty in a very good way.
