If you're like me then you probably don't start to pay attention to the American Idol contestants until they've chosen the final twelve. But there is something about contestant Leo Marlowe from Iowa that made me stop what I was doing last night and pay attention.
Besides having an amazing voice, he has a wonderful personality and the balls to come out within the first minute of meeting the judges. Leo didn't waste any time sharing his voice or the truth about his sexuality from the start. Unlike many of the male American Idol contestants who came out after the show,RJ Helton,Mario Vasquez, & Anwar Robinson amidst scandals.
And he did so in one of the most non-threatening ways possible...a homecoming queen joke. Get into the video above and check out Leo for yourself.
