‘Sweet Thing’ singer Chaka Khan left audiences sour after her performance at this year’s Jazz in the Gardens.
Hosted annually in Florida, the festival draws some of R&B’s biggest names and this year – with a lineup that featured the likes of Anita Baker, Fantasia, Smokey Robinson, and more – was no exception. Unfortunately, Khan, being one of this year’s more anticipated acts, left fans upset, shocked and concerned after her performance over the weekend featured moments of her forgetting the words to her classic hits, seeming disinterested, relying on background singers to sing her lead vocals, dancing bizarrely, and more.
Prompting serious backlash on Twitter, critics weighed in on her set – some even wielding accusations of drug or alcohol abuse. See the visuals inside and tell us what you think:

Some local reports indicate the songstress was not feeling well and was hospitalized shortly after the performance. As fans of Miss Khan we’re certainly hoping that’s all there is to this story and nothing more.
