American Idol hopeful Jermaine Jones tweeted on his official show account Tuesday that he’ll “no longer be on the show.” He did provide a reason why, however.
Following the tweet, the account was deleted; Fox reps declined to comment about it to the AP and Fox News, through early reports indicated the show would announce Jones’s dismissal on Wednesday’s broadcast.
Jones, a 25-year-old singing coach out of Pine Hill, New Jersey, is not the first singer unceremoniously bounced off the Fox juggernaut after creating a stir: past contestants shown the door include Corey Clark and Frenchie Davis in 2003, Joanna Pacitti in 2009 and Chris Golightly in 2010.
