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

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!

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

tumblr n1a1roliwf1r1p452o1 500

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!

Jennifer Lopez Shares An Awkwardly Adorable Pic Of Her Younger Self On American Idol! See It HERE!

jennifer lopez american idol young picture awkward cute

There are throwbacks and then there are throwbacks! We think this J.Lo pic falls into the latter category!

During last night's episode of American Idol the foxy FOX show host shared a vintage picture of herself, and it was the cutest thing EVER!

Jennifer Lopez and Idol co-judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban were holding open auditions in Salt Lake City, but when pressed they all pretty much admitted there was no way in hell they'd win the show if it were around when they were coming up in the biz!

Somehow that discussion evolved into a nostalgic look back at each judge's first television appearances!

If you thought J.Lo looked triple cray as a fly girl from In Living Color, just wait until you see Keith's original look…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
