Jermaine Jones Was Disappointed Idol Producers Used Him For Ratings (VIDEO)

Ousted American Idol contestant, Jermaine Jones, tells CNN Headline news in his first interview after being eliminated from the show that when Idol producers called him into a meeting, he had no idea what was going on.

Jermaine says he indicated on his Idol application that he had been arrested before. Idol did a background check on him. “There was some information that I had to obtain a lawyer to take care of before I could even be on the show. I took care of that information and I thought I had taken care of everything that I needed. Obviously not..”

The interviewer asked Jermaine how he felt about his disqualification being used as a ratings stunt. “I was very disappointed in that,” he said, “that’s the most I can really say about that. It hurt to watch.”

He denies lying to producers about his relationship to his father for a sympathy edit. “Me and my father are fine,” said Jermaine, “It was all he said she said.”  (Via The Hollywood Reporter)
