I think American Idol was a MAJOR fail tonight. Jermaine Jones was kicked off the show because he has outstanding warrants for driving on a suspended license and open container. Yes, he lied but they didn’t have to humiliate him on TV. Do you REALLY need ratings that bad Nigel Lythgoe?
Fortunately, the other American Idol contestants kept it classy and were supportive of Jermaine. According to AceShowBiz, Colton Dixon said, “We found out when you guys did and all the details,” the 20-year-old Tennessee boy stated. “I hate that for him. Everyone has a past and his just happened to be exposed. He handled it so well and I am so proud of him for that.” Colton a Libra, took the high road and said something positive about his former castmate.
Refusing to judge the “gentle giant” based on his criminal past, not like the American Idol producers, Elise Testone stated, “That hiccup doesn’t define him. This is just part of his life. He’s going to be fine. We’re all very, very sad not to have him with us.” As for Shannon Magrane, she would miss him because “he’s always been such a happy person. He’s such a goofball. He always kept all of us laughing.”
This season, American Idol is very tired and grasping at straws. Astrochicks DOES NOT believe the producers failed to do a background check on Jermaine, if they did, whoever did it should be fired. Arrest records are very easy to find, didn’t check his driving record…really.
For American Idol predictions, we think that Colton Dixon has a strong chance to make the final two. He’s musically gifted, a great singer, and definitely heartthrob material. As a Libra, he definitely has the Scotty McCreery charm, and definitely a pretty boy.
For Philip Phillips, we are really worried about his health. We hope he doesn’t have to drop out of the American Idol competition, he’s such an amazing talent. For the American Idol results show, we think one of the girls are going home. Stay tuned.
