The boys are gone, gone, gone from the stage of 'American Idol' leaving five girl finalists. And along with the boys went all that inauthentic styling – the peacock colored tuxedo jackets, shimmery bow ties and dandy shoes.

The only fashion shocker of Wednesday night went to Nicki Minaj, whose ruby red lips matched the melted-on-her-body slither by DSquared2 featuring a large circular cutout framing her very ample cleavage. HellOOOOO.

Besides the Minaj, um, eye-catcher, the girls focused more on their voices than their clothes.

Angie Miller rocked heavy metal. In the first round, she wore a snakeskin pattern shirt attached at the shoulder with bolts and chains, and acid washed jeans. For the second round, she topped her black mini dress with a cage of chains.

Candice Glover donned skinny pants, stilettos and slightly oversized tops: the first a cobalt, zipped number and then a white modified peasant blouse with sheer sleeves.

Kree Harrison kept it black and white first round – a short sleeve white cardi over a printed tee, black leggings and sparkly stiletto boots. This week she looked good in the frock she wore for round two, a black modified peplum.

Janelle Arthur wore a black and floral patchwork maxi for her first performance – not memorable – and then, went the other way in a short, gold sequin drenched miniskirt topped by a billowy, belted peasant blouse. Of course she wore cowboy boots.

Only Amber Holcomb embraced color. Her first look, a body skimming dress, featured what looked like a photo print of a glorious sunset. A pretty floral print adorned the sides of the dress framing her slim physique. She joined the black-and-whiters for her second performance in an evening gown that with a stiff white bodice and long black skirt. “Look how regal she looks,” said Ryan Seacrest.
