Season two ousted “Idol” singer, Broadway star and “The Voice” finalist Frenchie Davis has come out of the closet.
She told the St. Louis Post Dispatch after talking about a woman she’s been dating the past year:
“I wasn’t out before the relationship, but I wasn’t in,” she says. “I dated men and women, though lesbians weren’t feeling the bisexual thing. Now I’m in love with a woman I think I can be with forever.”
Davis has performed at numerous Gay Pride events over the years, including the ones in Atlanta. She has given her gay fans numerous props in interviews. So this is hardly a shock.
The R&B powerhouse finished fifth on “The Voice” last year.
Other “Idol” contestants who have come out include Adam Lambert, Jim Verraros, R.J. Helton and Clay Aiken. None have done so while they were competing on the show.

Taylor Hicks, the “Idol” winner from 2006, knows this. He decided to just flout the so-called “rules” during the show. I give him props for it. And host Cat Deeley dealt with it with class. MJ was nice enough to save the moment for posterity:
