Gay 'American Idol' Contestant MK Nobilette Gets 'Satisfaction' From Her Performance: VIDEO

MknobiletteMK Nobilette, the first openly gay contestant to compete on "American Idol," wowed the judges and the audience last night with her rendition of Allen Stone's "Satisfaction." She, along with the other contestants, will have to wait until tonight to find out who goes home, but based on this reaction Nobilette will hopefully be sticking around for a while.

Idolator reports:

MK Nobilette is looking absolutely adorable with minimal makeup and a turned-back baseball cap. She switches from her usual ballads to give a rousing version of “Satisfaction” by Allen Stone. In her pale pink suit and black sneaks, she really looks the part of a quirky, unique pop star. She’s soulful throughout the performance, really owning the stage. Harry calls her beautiful and he’s enjoyed watching her “grow.” He seriously can’t stop gushing and I actually don’t blame him. Keith tells her that even when she’s nervous, “Your voice never fails you.” Jennifer calls the song selection “smart” and has nothing but good things to say.

Check out the performance, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I have to say, this is the saddest batch of contestant American Idol has ever had. Not a single person I would pick up the phone and vote for.

  2. Ugh! Not my cup of tea.

  3. This season is much better than last year, mostly because of Harry Connick, Jr., who is pretty funny and also a serious musician.

  5. Chuy: I don't agree, it's true there's no Adam Lambert or David Cook, someone able to transform a song and make it work, but i think the contestants are not bad at all.
    Last year it had one of the best contestants ever, but Candice unfortunately has no charisma and i doubt she will get a good comercial career (wich is a pity because she is amazing).
    And the guys were terrible, the only one who has potential, Paul Jolley was throwed under the bus without hesitation.
    This year the cast is more diverse, and the guys are more interesting.

    I like MK, we'll see if she is able to carry the hype

  6. Last year's results were more or less predetermined. They needed a woman to win after guys with guitars won five years in a row. The judges chose the worst batch of guys they could in order to achieve their goal. All but one of the men were voted out in the first weeks, the one remaining was the worst of all of them (the "Sanjaya" effect). The result was a terrible season. This year it appears they're back to allowing guys with guitars again and we'll see how this goes.

  7. I agree with Chuy. I was thinking the same thing last week. There isnt anyone I would pick up the phone for. This is the first season of Idol since it premiered that I haven't voted at least once.
    Some of the contestants are good but no one is a star or has the charisma to be an idol. They are all a bunch of nice kids but thats it.
    Noblette is annoying. She is too quiet and her singing is just okay because of her personality. She should also lose the cap.

  8. MK Nobilette already has a name made for stardom, she's got a look (to be improved on of course) and a basic instrument and approach. I find her appealing, but she really needs a strong coach to fully develop. She's kind of winging it (and J-Lo ain't goin' to give her any help). There's a seed there, it needs to grow. This particular song is not good for her at all.
