American Idol Says Goodbye to Drag Queen Ada Vox

Adjust Comment Print

American Idol returned Sunday (April 29) for a special episode which had the Top 10 contestants singing songs with a bit of a twist: all were selected from the Disney catalog. Adam "Ada Vox" Sanders, Michelle Sussett and Dennis Lorenzo were eliminated at the conclusion of the broadcast based on the results of real-time home-viewer voting that occurred as the finalists performed Disney classics. I can't even put into words the feelings that I feel right now. "It's the people that love what I do that are the reason that I do what I love".

Vox sang "Circle of Life" in a golden gown for the show's Disney-themed night. "But we did talk about making sure that it wasn't a shtick, that it was really authentic, and tonight I feel like you really embodied Ada Vox". I want to be a queen you hear on your everyday radio station. She's addressed negative attention contestants have received on social media, for "our skin color, or how we're doing our hair, or our sexuality".

Still, the 18-year-old is confident she could be the first out American Idol. "I'll see you around the circuit as well", Perry told Vox during an interview with E!

All ten contestants - as well as the three judges - posed for press photos in conjunction with Sunday's show. "You're have it since your audition and it just keeps getting better and better", said Luke Bryan.

Woodard, Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Catie Turner now officially comprise the Top 7, and will each compete May 6 for spots in The Top 5. Unfortunately, Ada Vox, Dennis Lorenzo and Michelle Sussett were all sent home.
