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.
