Avery Wilson came out as bisexual in a dramatic way on his 25th birthday on Saturday, July 18. The Voice season 3 contestant announced his sexual lifestyle in a tweet.

"I'm bisexual. Ok bye," the singer/dancer tweeted.

When one of his followers questioned his bisexuality as a cover for his homosexuality, Wilson replied: "There is no [in] between for me sir. I like woman and men ! The bus stops here stop trying to paint your narrative on others . WHOS NEXT !?"

Wilson was born in Hamden, Connecticut and grew up in a 2-parent household. His dad encouraged his singing talent and entered the 9 year old in open mic nights at one of the 14 McDonald's he oversaw as regional director of operations.

Wilson was first discovered by singer/producer Sean Garrett who began managing him in 2011. Wilson appeared on season 3 of The Voice when he was 16. He performed on team Cee Lo Green and made it to the knockouts.

Wilson was a favorite to win but he was eliminated in Oct. 2012 after he performed "Yeah X3." His performance got the attention of Clive Davis who signed Wilson to a record deal at RCA Records.

Wilson's surprise announcement inspired other bisexuals to speak their minds on Twitter.
