Exactly one week after “The Dress” became a national obsession, American Idol contestant Jax decided to catch America’s votes by wearing the eye-catching frock.
On Thursday’s (March 5) episode — during which the top eight women were revealed and sang for America’s votes — Jax hit the stage of Detroit’s Filmore Theatre (where the show is taping this week) in the instantly famous blue-and-black striped dress. (Yes, it’s 100 percent blue and black; not white and gold.)
Host Ryan Seacrest joked about the wardrobe choice on Twitter: “Even with @wearing the actual dress I still see white/gold in the pic.”
Taylor Swift was one of the first celebs to weigh in on #TheDress last Thursday when the photo went viral. “I don’t understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it’s a trick somehow. I’m confused and scared. PS it’s OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK.”
American Idol is on Wednesday and Thursday next week, when the top 12 (out of 16 remaining hopefuls) will be revealed and perform. Stay tuned for our full recap of Thursday night’s episode.
