American Idol's First Openly Gay Contestant MK Nobilette Got The Boot Last Night & Made Jennifer Lopez Cry! Sadsies!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteAmerican IdolRyan SeacrestJennifer LopezKeith Urban

Jennifer Lopez called her a "quiet storm" during the audition process—and just like the rain, she came and went!

We're so sad to reveal that American Idol's first openly gay contestant MK Nobilette was voted out of the show's top 10 last night!

Even worse, Jenny, who's been a huge fan of MK ever since the beginning, looked to be in complete tears (above) as the talented songstress performed John Legend‘s All Of Me—in hopes of being ultimately saved!

We know the I Luh Ya Papi singer tried to do some major convincing with Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr., but it simply wasn't enough for the judges to use their save.

MK has a hugely supportive fanbase, so we're sure news of last night's exit hit them hard—but we're so happy this adorable almost Idol helped change the face of the show forever!

Here's to more open and honest contestants from now on!

He’s the President of the United States! Of course you’re going to get nervous meeting him!

Even if you’re Zach Galifianakis!

The Between Two Ferns host welcomed President Barack Obama onto his Funny or Die web series earlier this week and the result was one of the most legendary interviews we’ve ever seen!

But don’t let Zach’s cutting character routine fool you! He may have been going back and forth with the playful insults for the Prez but off-camera, he was sweating bullets!

President Obama called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today and spilled on just how nervous Zach got during their sit down!

He explained:

Yes!!! The wonderfully talented witches of Wicked are taking over the red carpet!

Kristin Chenoweth & Idina Menzel are both at the Oscars tonight and they even sent a few ridiculously cute messages back and forth to each other via Ryan Seacrest!

When the RyGuy caught up with Kristen — who looks sooooo AH-Mazing, by the way — he asked her how she felt about her theatrical co-star taking the stage tonight to sing her fantastically fabulous song off of the Frozen soundtrack and you'll NEVER guess what she said!

Kristin confessed:

Ryan Seacrest Goes Black & White At The Oscars!!

Oscars 2014: Ryan Seacrest walks the red carpet.

Dayum!!

The always dapper Ryan Seacrest hit the red carpet at the Oscars in Hollywood.

Instead of breaking out in his new line, the American Idol host donned a white Burberry tux with black trousers and shined up shoes.

Bet he didn’t think he’d be competing with Johnny Weir for best white ensem, though!

But in all seriousness, we’re glad to see Ryan switch it up from his usually dark-colored three-pieces, especially on a gloomy day like today.

Head-to-toe perfection!

American Idol Is Projected To Lose Money This Year! Find Out Why They'll Be In The Red HERE!

American Idol is on a steady path to losing money this year, as ratings are down 26% from last season!

Even with all the show's changes in 2014, including the additions of Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez to the judge's panel, negative financials are unfortunately on the horizon for the first time since the premiere in 2002!

But what are some of the rumored reasons behind the money slump?!

The FOX series pays a ton for Ryan Seacrest and Jen, as they allegedly get $15 million each - as well as spending between $5-$7 million on a new set this year!

Did we mention it's rumored to cost them $5 million for viewer phone calls alone?!

That said, the insiders are saying AI is probably not getting cancelled after this season, but hopefully they'll be able to make up for their losses!

And if that doesn't happens, it looks like they will have to snip their budget significantly!
