Former 'Idol' Mandisa Is a Big Loser

2/16/2010 1:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Season five "American Idol" castoff Mandisa ('memba her?) has hit a high note.

Mandisa

The slimmed down 33-year-old resurfaced at a NYC fashion show on Monday, looking fab.

In case you don't remember, Taylor Hicks won that season.

You see they had to put the year on each picture...without it you wouldn't be able to tell which picture is the fat one..

I'm a close friend of Mandisa's and I think the word "Beauty" fits her so well. She has worked so hard and with great diligence and discipline to lose nearly 100 pounds. Some of you may be hating on her, but it doesn't really matter...she knows where her worth and confidence comes from, and it's not from man. So proud of her! And so proud of TMZ for recognizing her effort...way to go Harvey.

She may have a nice smile, but her body still looks like Opfra's...

she DOES look great! she had a beautiful face even when she was bigger. people need to stop hatin' and start congratulatin'! The people with the negative comments are probably overweight 'trollers', just sitting around waiting to criticize someone.

I went to high school with Mandisa when she still went by a very sweet nickname. She was such a nice person. Unfortunately she has been heavy for most of her life...but, this is a huge transformation for her. She looks great and is doing well in her chosen profession, that is more than most of us that read this site can say.
