X MARKS THE SPOT
America might be uptight about trans folks on DWTS, but Down Under trans male singer Paige Elliot Phoenix wowed the judges on the Australian edition of X Factor. Reports the Advocate:
Phoenix told the three judges, who include former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, about his transition before launching into a rendition of INXS’s ‘Never Tear Us Apart.’ All three judges lauded Phoenix’s performance and voted to bring him back for the show’s ‘boot camp.’ The singer was then shown Skyping the good news to his girlfriend in San Francisco.”
