Queer music Friday - Joe McElderry

I posted Joe McElderry's statement that a Twitter hacker helped him come out (the hacker broke into McElderry's account, sent messages like "It's been difficult living a lie for so many years," and that helped him "come to realise who I am"). He's known in the UK as he won X-Factor in 2009.

So here's a really gay video, McElderry and George Michael singing Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me":

I'd put up the video of his first single, but he disabled embed. So here's another X-Factor clip, singing Journey's "Open Arms."

I hate to say it, but the years are not being very kind to Mr. Michael. Definitely still has the voice, but the look is ever so carefully sliding into Vegas act.

And I hope Mr. McElderry manages his career carefully. He too has a great voice, and I would hate to see him go the way of folks like the American Idol winners.

Rumors are flying that the singers wanted to change the lyrics to "Please Let Your Son Go Down On Me" ... but the always-classy Sir Elton would have nothing to do with it!

Alex, what a great choice. Not only is this guy gorgeous, but has a marvelous voice. THANKS

He's a cutie and I'm sure that helps. When I pushed the page down to comment here, he suddenly became a lot less good! At least he finally came out - the rumors had been swirling for a while now.

But he turned off embeds for his new music video? I'm sure that's his record company more than him, but what a dumbass move. This would have been a great way to get LGBT people introduced to his music easily since he's been all over the web this week.
