M.K. Nobilette Talks Coming Out on Idol, Learning From Harry, Being an 'Awkward' Performer

_MB11507M.K. Nobilette was the first one out on American Idol — but not in every sense of the word.

The Season 13 finalist made history as the first contestant ever to acknowledge being gay during her run on the show, and then made it all the way to a Top 10 finish and a spot on the 2014 Idol summer tour.

M.K. dropped by TVLine HQ this afternoon to talk about her love of obscure music, her Rush Week cover of “All of Me” and the glitch in her Top 10 Week rendition of “Perfect” that led to her elimination.
