Okay, she’s pulling out the full-on J.Lo style spread.

#TheDress Makes American Idol Debut

Mar/06/2015 at 08:10 AM ET

It’s hardly the first British import to conquer American TV (looking at you, Idris Elba and Dominic Monaghan), but it is the most controversial. An American Idol contestant has worn (steel yourself) #TheDress.

For her performance on women’s top eight night, contestant Jax covered “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” — a memorable performance, but not quite as showstopping as the fact that she got the Roman Originals dress that sparked a million Internet debates delivered to Hollywood in time for her performance (then paired it with knee-high boots and fingerless leather gloves). And of course, veteran red carpet reporter (and Idol host) Ryan Seacrest couldn’t resist asking her about it. “Is this the dress that broke the Internet?” he asked her. “Is it white and gold?”

He took to Twitter that night to compare the in-person (definitively black-and-blue) dress with the original photo, declaring that he still sees white and gold in the Tumblr pic. (Don’t feel bad, Ryan: All these stars agree with you.)

And if Jax is looking to shake things up for next week, she can purchase #TheDress in white and gold — for real this time! — with proceeds going to charity.

Think it’s funny that she found #TheDress, or did it distract from her performance?
