Unfiltered 'Voice': EW weighs Peacock's Pride vs. Fox closet
Over on EW.com, writer James Hibberd highlights an interesting distinction between two of America's suddenly omnipresent network singing competitions:
NBC’s The Voice has only aired two episodes, but already viewers have heard something that viewers have probably never heard on Fox’s American Idol: “I’m gay.”
The Voice featured two openly lesbian contestants during its premiere, then two openly gay men during its second episode. While there have been gay Idol contestants, most famously Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken, they’ve either publicly acknowledged their sexual orientation after their respective seasons concluded, or that aspect of their identity was ignored on the show itself.
