American Idol Contestant Jermaine Jones Gets Boot From Show?

This seems to happen every season on American Idol — a contestant gets the boot because of an undisclosed past criminal record.

TMZ is reporting that on tonight’s A.I., Jermaine Jones will be shown the door because of two crimes he was charged with in 2011. One of the charges involved violence and you guessed it, he did not disclose either to producers of the hit TV show.

Jones tweeted Tuesday, “Awww I will no longer b on the show”. However, that tweet was soon after taken down.

In addition, the “gentile giant” reportedly has outstanding warrants that were also not revealed to Idol producers.

Catch the drama tonight at 7pm as American Idol airs on Fox 15.


In case you haven’t been following the show, here’s a clip of one of Jones’ Idol performances:
