Ada Vox was a contestant on American Idol 16 which I hardly remember and it was the first time American Idol was on another network other than FOX which was ABC. Ada Vox previously competed on American Idol 12 as Adam Sanders so Ada has competed on the show twice and on different networks. Iconic? Kind of. Adam Sanders auditioned as his drag persona, Ada Vox. Ada made the Top 24 that season after she sang "Creep" by Radiohead at the Showcase Round. I liked that performance but that was probably the last time I would like Ada. The judges tried to push Ada so much and I knew America was not going to be here for it so I never got attached. Great singer but there was a disconnect. She got worse as the season progressed imo. It became a shouting match. Her "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone performance? It was alright. It was when she sang "Defying Gravity" by Idina Menzel & Kristen Chenoweth with Lea Michele that I knew it wasn't going to work. Lea outshone her every which way. Lea was singing and Ada was shouting. This was during the Top 24 and and the judges sent her through. I knew the judges were going to send her through and every opportunity This format was a mess. For Top 14 she sang "The Show Must Go Own" by Queen and America felt the same way because they did not vote her through. She sang "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" by Jennifer Holliday after America didn't pick her as one of the Top 6 to be apart of the Top 10 and the judges sent her through again. Adam made it to the Top 10 and to Disney night and that's good for her. She sang "Circle of Life" by Elton John and again America denied her. America was never going to be here for her and the judges tried to make her happen, they tried to pimp her, they tried to overpraise her like she was Jacob Lusk and Joshua Ledet all rolled into one. American said no and she left Top 10 week having never been approved by America. America was not ready for a drag queen to on Idol but I would like to think that would day they would and I would like to think it would be a better one with a better voice than Ada Vox.
