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!

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!!!

Well, the show is now in its 13th season and he's officially a teenager and the 15-year-old heart out sang his heart out on for judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. last night with Sublime's Santeria.

American Idol Has Their Least Watched Premiere Since Season 1! Uh Oh!

american idol judges season 13 doodle

This…is American Idol’s…worst premiere in 12 seasons!

That’s what Ryan Seacrest’s intro should have been last night! Because the long-running reality series pulled in their lowest audience for a premiere since the show started in 2002!

Gone are the days when AI was the most watched TV show in the country (they hold the record for 8 seasons in a row!), because their ratings are clearly slipping!

Last night’s Season 13 premiere brought in about 15 million viewers, making it the first time that they’ve ever had a first episode with less than 20 million people watching!

What’s the problem, America?! Do you not like Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, or Harry Connick Jr. as your judges?

It’s not exactly all bad news for Idol however. The show did draw around 5 million more viewers than anything else on TV last night. And their ratings are pretty much on par with The Voice’s season 5 premiere back in September.

FOX also points out that for the first time since 2011, American Idol’s premiere ratings actually went up vs. last season’s finale! So perhaps fans who had thrown in the towel on the series are suddenly singing a different tune?

We’ll have to wait and see if the talent they find this year is good enough to keep audiences watching from start to finish!
