‘American Idol’ Alum Frenchie Davis Gets a Second Chance on ‘The Voice’

A lot of people may have recognized Frenchie Davis during her performance of Katy Perry‘s ‘I Kissed a Girl’ on ‘The Voice.’ She was once famously disqualified from ‘American Idol,’ but she continues to pursue her musical dream.

Davis first gained notoriety when she made it through to the semifinal round in the second season of ‘American Idol.’ However, she was kicked off the show when producers discovered that she posed for topless photos years earlier.

During the past several years, Davis has carved out a nice career in musical theater. She has appeared in ‘Rent’ on Broadway, as well as a touring production of ‘Dreamgirls,’ among other shows. Yet, she was still haunted by the ‘American Idol’ incident.

“I am not gonna lie — that experience scared the heck out of me for a looong time, and a part of me gave up on pursuing the opportunity to be a recording artist,” wrote Davis in a pre-audition blog for ‘The Voice.’ “I had to be fearless and honest with myself. This opportunity had presented itself and I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t explore it further.”

Now, as a member of ‘Voice’ coach Christina Aguilera‘s team, the 31-year-old Davis has a second shot at winning over the American public.
