Which 'American Idol' Contestant Is Being Disqualified for Concealing 'Multiple Crimes'? (REPORT)
According to sources for TMZ, American Idol is expected to disqualify one of its contestants tonight after they concealed "multiple crimes" from show producers, one involving violence.
So, who is getting the boot?
TMZ says it will be Jermaine Jones, the 25-year-old vocal instructor from Pine Hill, N.J., whose run-ins with the law include lying to cops by giving them fake names after arrests and outstanding warrants, according to the report.
Neither FOX nor American Idol has commented on the report, though TMZ says the confrontation between producers and Jermaine took place on camera and that the footage will air on tonight's telecast (8PM).
Jermaine, who was brought back by the judges after he failed to make the top 24, allegedly confirmed his departure last night on Twitter, tweeting, "Awww I will no longer b on the show." The tweet has since been deleted.
If true, will you be sad to see Jermaine go? Sound off in the comments!
