While both stars opted for glam gowns for the finale, they went for two totally different looks — and which one did you like best?

While some of my coworkers can’t stop gushing about what’s going on on stage during X Factor, I found myself more interested in the dueling dressing between Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger! The finale episode on Dec. 22 was no exception, where both stars turned up all dressed up in gowns. While Nicole opted for a shimmering silver number, Paula opted for a super sexy (and very colorful) gown.

Nicole’s silver beaded Pamella Roland column gown was definitely show-stopping, but the silhouette also gave Nicole such a sophisticated vibe — I definitely prefer to see her looking sexy and chic compared to some of her revealing looks! As for Paula — oh, Paula! What was she thinking? The bright orange and hot pink gown paired with her turquoise sandals was just way too much. From the high slit in the front to the embellished detailing around the pockets, there was just way too much going on.

Personally, Nicole’s get-up was definitely better! What do you think?
