Jermaine Jones was eliminated from 'American Idol' this past week, but not because the voting public sent him home. Instead, producers had to show him the door since he has several outstanding arrest warrants. He contends that he was completely blindsided by his dismissal and was not told about the producers' findings beforehand; he walked into the room and there were cameras set up to record everything.
Jones is a true talent with a deep baritone, so we haven't heard the last from him. He spoke to PEOPLE after his ouster and as it turns out, he is in surprisingly upbeat spirits and is moving full steam ahead.
Jermaine Jones' dismissal from 'American Idol' over outstanding arrest warrants was addressed on tonight's episode (March 14.) It cleared up a lot of questions and hopefully squashes the rumors that the gentle giant is some sort of violent criminal, as press reports began to indicate when news of his ouster broke.
By now 'American Idol' viewers are aware that "gentle giant" Jermaine Jones is being kicked off the show on tonight's (March 14) episode for failing to disclose his arrest record and criminal history. Jones, who openly confessed to being a mama's boy and was a favorite of show mentor Jimmy Iovine thanks to his deep baritone, apparently has five outstanding arrest warrants in New Jersey.
Now that we’ve got our Top 13, it’s time for the contestants on ‘American Idol’ to prove they deserve to be there. This couldn’t be truer for Jermaine Jones who was brought back by the judges last week, and battled it out as a wildcard for his spot.
The gentle giant of 'American Idol,' Jermaine Jones, received a save tonight on the show, after he was granted access back into the competition as Season 11's wild card. Taking the stage wearing some fly white pants and even snazzier purple shirt, Jones was "overjoyed" to be back in the competition, even though his mother didn't pick up the fateful phone call from Fox at first!
Jermaine Jones was born to sing. In fact, his mother says he was born singing. The 24-year-old 'American Idol' contestant's nervous performance of 'Superstar' by Luther Vandross convinced judges that he was good enough to get to Hollywood.
