Jermaine Jones American Idol

The show revealed the emotional moment Jermaine was eliminated for lying about arrest warrants — do YOU think he should have been booted?

Jermaine Jones was kicked off of American Idol for concealing his previous arrests, and on the March 14 episode cameras caught his shocking dismissal!

Jermaine, 25, sat with two executive producers — including Nigel Lythgoe – who explained why they couldn’t have him on the show anymore.

“The fact is we are not allowed to have anybody that has an outstanding warrant on the program — and you have four of them against you,” one of the producers said.

Jermaine explained why he hid the allegations, saying he didn’t want his history to impact his opportunities on the show.

“I just was scared and nervous,” he said. “I didn’t want to get judged. I didn’t want to get penalized for anything that happened in the past.”

Do YOU think Jermaine was kicked off the show in order to boost ratings, HollywoodLifers?

naturally like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality nevertheless I will definitely come again again.

What a joke. Rember in the begining jermaine was during all that crying. I mean he was crying, Worry that he was not going to be pick. Well he wasn’t and randy when back and brought him back. Randy did it right the first time. Jermaine act soooo meek. I almost certain his mother knew too. How dumb is he. He did not know that policeman watch tv too. He was in a dream world. It is nobody fault but his. Moral of this story is clean your life up before you go on american idol. Dumber and Dumb show is what he should have tried out for.

No, he is not dumb, it’s just that he wanted to do something to his life and make it more positive by trying to follow his dreams of being a singer. Don’t say he was dumb :( I’m so sad to see him go.

GOD gives us many chances. His past should not be a part of his future. We’ve all made mistakes in life. Judge you not, lest you be judge. He is trying to make a better life for himself. Flesh got in the way. We all got a past. GOD says I know the plans I have for you plans of good and not evil.

You are partially correct; however these days rappers, many ofthem criminal in their behavior are being awarded with trophies in awards shows.
That is a cancer on society, when criminality is awarded.

Well…Age and wealth ain’t nothing but a number for
these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He
is almost 10 years older than I. We met via
~~–Agelessmeet .COM~~ a nice place for younger women
and older men, or older women and younger men, to interact
with each other! Maybe you wanna check it out or tell
your friends :)
