Jermaine Jones was on CNN Showbiz Tonight to talk about his exit from American Idol. He said that in his application, he indicated that he was arrested before and the show did a background check on him. He actually obtained a lawyer to take care of some of those issues so he could be on the show.
Wow. So there you have it. American Idol knew about his previous arrest way before this week’s disqualification.
Nigel Lythgoe has allowed the show to sink to new lows in order to obtain high ratings. What a disappointment.
