It's been years since I watched American Idol at all, let alone paid attention early on in the season. But this year's different! One of my former students, the awesome MK Nobilette, is in the top 30!
I'm so proud of her, and I can't wait to see more of her performances! She's a great person, not just a great singer, not to mention a trailblazer for gay women.
Check out some of her stuff here:
Audition Video (in case my superskill at html doesn't work, she starts around 8:52)
Idol Group Performances (she starts around 3:20)
