Disney may have been the theme last night on American Idol, but not everyone was able to get their happily ever after. After impressing fans and judges alike for weeks drag queen contestant Ada Vox was sent home last night when she fell short in the popular vote.
Though the singer's rendition of "Circle of Life" wasn't flawless, Vox had one of the best voices in the competition and even managed to hold her own with the likes of Lea Michele during duets week. Though this isn't the first time Vox had failed to garner enough love from the audience at home, the judges were able to advance her through to the next round last time.
Vox, from San Antonio, Texas, had competed on Idol in the past under her given name, Adam Sanders, and even made it to the top 50. This time around, as Ada, the full fantasy was realized and the big diva songs that didn't quite match up when Adam sang them were given new life. Fans were understandably upset by the performer's exit.
\u201cada vox had the best voice of the whole competition but conservative america ignored that bc she was a drag queen and that\u2019s the tea\u201d
