America has spokenand drag queen Ada Vox will not be continuing on American Idol.
This week’s American Idol was Disney-themed and despite a great performance of “Circle of LIfe” from The Lion King, America came to finish the job that Katy Perry and judges delayed a week ago when they saved Ada from elimination.
Viewers thinned the pack of ten down to a pack of seven, and they didn’t believe that Ada Vox deserved her spot.
“Although America might not be ready for people like those of us who are a little bit different,” Vox said to the Huffington Post, “I think it’s very important that our talents be recognized.”
Vox, whose non-drag name is Adam Sanders, was the first drag queen to advance to Idol’s top 10. Some Idol fans were not happy to see Vox go. A lot of fans chalked Vox’s elimination up to good ole homophobia.
Ok excuse me but all the people that didn’t vote for Ada Vox, I hope you step on a Lego.
