One of the the individuals competing in Hollywood in this season of American Idol is Chicagoan Josh "JDA" Davila.

Davila, who formerly competed in Windy City Gay Idol in 2012, was among the men to make it to the final 28. The male contingent will be winnowed to 20 during the week of Feb. 11.

In an interview with American Idol, Davila, who hails from the city's South Side, said he auditioned "because what I wanted to achieve—and am going to have the opportunity to achieve—is to expose my androgynous style. ... I was very grateful to be given that opportunity to be told I have something special.

He added that "my approach to how I present myself to the world" makes him unique. Davila added that he is the next American Idol because "androgyny needs to be seen more."
