Even though people care less about this show than they did when Simon was still a judge (I count myself as one of those people), American Idol is a top trend today on Google because another contestant has been given the heave-ho.
Jermaine Jones, dubbed "The Gentle Giant" by Ryan Seacrest, has been disqualified from the show due not disclosing that he had been perviously arrested twice and still has outstanding warrants. One of the alleged incidents was from bar fight in New Jersey and it has been classified as "violent" in nature.
While I'm sure this was disappointing for some fans, Jones seemed to be on his way out the natural way (by audience vote) anyhow. He finished in the bottom three last week and didn't exactly have glowing reviews.
