20-year-old adorkable Mormon Tyler Robinson put on his best Blaine Anderson glee club jacket to perform Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” on the poor man’s American Idol (also known as The Voice). But he also killed an additional bird by coming out to his estranged father during the show. He said, “My dad and I don’t have the best relationship. He hasn’t been supportive of my music. Also my father does not know that I’m gay. I haven’t actually told him yet. I guess he knows now.”
Well, good job and all, Tyler. It takes guts to come out on national TV and then sing a mediocre band’s song in front of Cee Lo. But, um, if your dad isn’t all that supportive of your singing… he might not be watching The Voice either. Just sayin’.
