Season 16 American Idol contestant Ada Vox has been posting some stunning makeup and fashion looks on Instagram during quarantine. The drag queen previously made it to the show’s Top 8 with her amazing singing voice.
Ada had previously auditioned for the show as Adam Sanders, but didn’t make it through Hollywood Week. He returned as his drag queen alter ego Ada Vox and wowed the judges and audience.
Ada Vox Posts Makeup Looks On Instagram
Who says you can’t get dolled up just because you’re stuck at home? Ada’s most recent Instagram post features a purple eye shadow look paired with a sparkly orange cape and matching hair accessory.
Ada shared the brands behind her look, including Anastasia Beverly Hills and NYX. She also credited Taco Bell for her “tiddies,” which made her followers laugh. In fact, YouTuber Jaymes Mansfield said in a boob-contouring tutorial that it helps for drag queens to have “a little bit of body fat.”
Ada posted another bare-chested photo on Instagram earlier this week, encouraging her followers to stay inside. The pictures have inspired plenty of compliments from fans, calling her “flawless.” One commented, “OMG you make such a beautiful woman!”
Another follower suggested that Ada should appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race. She replied that she’s “not much of a ‘look’ queen,” so she’s “scared of the runways,” but added, “maybe one day.”
Ada’s Journey On ‘American Idol’ And Beyond
Adam Sanders explained why he decided to audition as Ada Vox for American Idol Season 16, saying, “I’m going to bring out the big guns this time. I needed to make a statement because, while my talent was there, I needed something to push me over the top. That just happened to be bringing Ada out of the woodwork.”
There was some controversy when Ada was eliminated from the competition, with some claiming it was because of anti-LGBTQ sentiments. However, former contestant Clay Aiken wrote an op-ed arguing that her performances just weren’t up to par.
Ada herself said she didn’t give her best performances in those final weeks she was in the competition. However, since appearing on the show, she has released the singles “Because of You” and “Tea Time.”
Ada also frequently posts cover songs on social media, in addition to her makeup looks, and has been performing live shows since her time on American Idol. She currently has over 80,000 Instagram followers.
