The much-awaited Chaka Khan vs Stephanie Mills Verzuz battle is happening finally and fans cannot keep calm. The pre-Thanksgiving episode features the two yesteryear R&B queens who are keeping the audience hooked churning out one hit after another. Though Chaka Khan might be more famous among the two, many fans feel Stephanie Mills is having an edge over her on the stage. 

It is believed that it was Mills who initiated the idea of a Verzuz battle with Chaka Khan. In fact, the 'Home' hitmaker approached Timbaland and Swizz Beatz and requested them to get Chaka onboard for the friendly musical fight. Stephanie Mills shared a powerful note while announcing the news of her Verzuz battle with Chaka, saying, "For those of you that want to know why @chakaikhan and I are down for doing @verzuztv, it’s all in this post. We have been in this wild game called the music business our entire lives…We nothing to prove, other than to show Our young black sisters we are enough and stronger together. So we join our big sisters @mspattilabelle and @msgladysknight along with so many other amazing women who have been apart of this amazing platform called @verzuztv. This is not a battle! It’s a celebration for us✊🏾. We’re all about the ❤️ of the music, positive vibes, and a lot of harmony💞🎼🙏🏾. Thursday night don’t miss it✊🏾✊🏾 ."

While many fans complained about the DJ showdown the took place before the Stephanie vs Chaka battle, others are quite disappointed with the much-anticipated Verzuz episode. Viewers strongly felt that Chaka Khan was intoxicated or under the influence which made her slur words or behave awkwardly on stage. In fact, some even lauded Stephanie Mills for taking care of Chaka and checking in on her often despite the ongoing R&B battle. 

"For real! this is so wrong. looks like #StephanieMills had to remind her which song they were getting ready to sing just now. please... if y'all love Queen #ChakaKhan, get her some help before putting her back out there like this. #Verzuz," tweeted a concerned fan. 

Olympian Muna Lee wrote, "Auntie Chaka!!! Where’s the coffee!! Get Auntie some water too. #VERZUZ". A third fan tweeted, "#VERZUZ at this point I really think it should have just been rescheduled it is very sad to see Chaka Khan on stage right now I commend Ms.Mills on her showmanship and her fighting to keep the show going however it’s a hot mess …"

"I hope all woman have friends like Stephanie mills when you’re drunk , the friend who clearly knows you lit but not going to embarrass you publicly but they checking on you every second #VERZUZ," read another tweet.
