Former American Idol contestant, Jermaine Jones, announced today via twitter that he is set to audition for The Voice next month.
What are the chances that the NBC singing competition will put through an ex-Idol contestant who was disqualified from the competition after he lied to producers?
The Voice producers would probably love any opportunity to stick it to their rival, but why would they take on a hopeful who had deliberately hidden warrants he had pending for his arrest at the time he auditioned for American Idol? The only scenario I could imagine would have The Voice producers spin a story of contrition–about how Jermaine has changed, and that The Voice is the competion that TRULY gives artists a second chance…
But how could Voice producers ever really trust the guy? And wouldn’t they look stupid if Jermaine didn’t change his ways and was caught lying during his second chance?
Personally, I just don’t think Jermaine is so talented, that he would be worth taking the risk. I never understood why Idol producers put him though…not only once..but TWICE. I always assumed he was just fodder to be toppled early in the competition.
What do you think? Should Jermaine Jones be given a second chance?
