Anyone who watched the American Idol finale last night got the special treat of seeing original Dreamgirls star Jennifer Holliday and finalist Jessica Sanchez rip into the ubiquitous showstopper “And I Am Telling You…” like two rabid wildebeasts tearing apart a wounded antelope made of air and musical notes.

It was, in a word, reality TV ridiculata at its finest. Both powerhouse divas belted and growled and made some of the craziest singing faces television has ever seen. (Holliday is the one to watch, though Sanchez held her note-pummeling own).

Below check out the 15 Best Diva Stank Faces from the finale’s most over-the-top (in the best way, ladies!) moment:

Look at this lip snarl. There ain’t no bigger diva than me.

Oh, honey, two can play at this game.

Then, talk to the hand, baby girl!

Why isn’t anyone looking at my abs?!





Did you just steal my glory note?!

Are you hungry?

Because I’M HUNGRY.

Or maybe I’ll suck your blood?



And you. And you. AND YOU. You’re gonna lovvvvvvvve meeeeeeeeee!

Need to see it in real time? Watch below:

If that wasn’t the most entertaining four minutes of TV all season, I seriously don’t know what is. I’ve probably rewatched this at least 12 times today, and I am not even close to done. What about you? Were you as fascinated by this duet as me? What was your favorite moment of the Idol finale?
