Alison Iraheta's deep, soulful rendition of No Doubt's Don't Speak couldn't distract the American Idol's panel of judges from her egregious fashion faux pas -- a puffy red dress accompanied by black leggings, white heels and a spiky magenta mane.
Simon Cowell -- taking a page out of Mr. Blackwell's book -- didn't mince words, likening the 16-year-old to "something out of The Addams Family," while wondering aloud if the show's theme was Halloween night.
We here at RadarOnline.com think that substance should account for something, and Iraheta sure can belt out a tune better than Uncle Fester ever could. Still, if she wants to emerge as the chosen one, a minor makeover might be in order.
See if Iraheta's poor choice of threads cost her in the competition on Wednesday's results show, airing on Fox at 9/8c.
