“American Idol” Finds First Openly Gay Contestant in M.K. Nobilette
And when M.K. Nobilette showed up to learn her fate, she unwittingly became the first openly gay contestant in the show’s history.
Nobilette declared, “I’m very obviously gay, and there are always gonna be people in America and everywhere else who will definitely hate me, but I think that in the last two years there have been a lot of things that have really changed that.”
In response J. Lo affirmed, “The world is changing. We think you could be an American Idol.”
“You belong here,” added Connick Jr.
