I wondered if he ws Gay also. It was his demeanor, and did I see a hankerchief in is back pocket? The way Paula said something about girls liking him and then added guys too....in a romantic sort of way.
I didn't think he was until I saw him last night. His kind gentle self aware demeanor is appealing to all sexes. I was curious if he was so I came to the thread to see what the chat was about. I was surprised to find the discussion and almost felt validated for wondering, as other have too.
I like him, I think he's great and will go far or win. Gay or straight no matter, I was just curious.

I think you hit the nail on the head here, razorbacker! It isn't just about who the best singer is, it's about who the most financially viable singer is. Let's face it, this is entertainment for us, but the bottom line is the almighty dollar. I don't know if Ace will win this, but I can see why the judges are promoting him. $$ Ching-ching, Ching-ching! $$
I definitely got the gay vibe thing last night. He totally acts like a gay guy who's trying very hard to appear straight.
As for the George Michael thing... No, choosing George Michael doesn't make him gay, but it's definitely more of an indication than someone singing Elton John. Elton John may be gay, but he has a very broad fanbase - men and women, gay and straight. Whereas there are not a whole lot of straight men who will admit that they like George Michael (even back when he was still in the closet).
And, come on, just his bio alone screams gay. He doesn't mention girls in any of his answers or give any indication that he's straight, and what about his comment - "7 years old, I walked face first into a mailbox while talking with a love interest.". Any straight guy would've said "a girl I liked" or "a girl I was in love with", not the very gender neutral "a love interest". I wouldn't be surprised if he wanted to say "boy" but the producers made him change it. That just seems like a really odd thing to say.
I'm not saying he's definitely gay, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some backstage action between he and Ryan Seacrest - oh wait, that's a different topic altogether.

Hey, Ace! Sniff! Sniff! I smell one of those special "shopping sprees" from Paula coming up for you juuuust around the corner! Hang in there!
As for the love interest thing...does anyone know they're gay at 7? What if he had a crush on a really older girl? And is sort of embarrassed by it now?
