Opps! Check out why Chaka is relieved to have been eliminated.

“It’s been great fun. I’ve learned a lot about myself,” Khan said Monday in a post-elimination interview. Chaka revealed that she has stage fright! Wow! She said controls when she sings by having the first two songs of her set be “hard hitters.”

“By the third song I’m acclimated and I’m really actually singing to the people. And so I don’t have any time to acclimate here,” said Khan. “I’m sorry if I let anybody down. I’m most sorry to Keo.”

Chaka wouldn’t be the first celebrity to reveal stage fright, even after decades of performing. Brandy, Adele, Andre 3000, Barbara Striesand are just a few who’ve acknowledged bouts with stage fright.
