VIA TMZ: A contestant on “American Idol” will be kicked off the show Wednesday because the singer concealed multiple crimes from producers … TMZ has learned. Sources connected with the show tell us … the contestant — one of the final 12 — was charged with 2 crimes in 2011, one involving violence. We’re told in both cases the contestant gave a fake name to cops when arrested. In addition, we’re told the contestant has outstanding warrants — again, the singer concealed it from producers. We’re told the contestant was confronted with the information on camera today and the footage will air on Wednesday’s show.
UPDATE: Jermaine tweeted on his official American Idol account, “Awww I will no longer b on the show.”
