SCORNED! Chris Medina Not Asked to the American Idol Finale

Color me shocked. Chris Medina, the American Idol contestant whose touching backstory figured prominently in the early rounds of the competition has not been invited to the Idol finale by the producers!

Chris just tweeted, “Just found out I will not be at the finale for #AmericanIdol sad and disappointed.”

And to a fan who asked for further details, “not asked. Then I asked for tickets and I told they can’t. No harsh feelings #AmericanIdol”

Whoa. I would have thought they would have featured him on the show. Now he can’t even get in the door. Used and abused people.

I wasn’t a Chris Medina fan when he was on the show, but he did generate a hell of a lot of buzz for Idol during those early weeks of the competition. The relationship between Idol and contestant is not just a one way street.

I think the least they could do is give the guy tickets to the show.

In case your memory is short, Chris is the Idol contestant who auditioned in Milwaukee, hoping to make a better life for his fiance, who suffered a tragic brain injury in a car accident. Shockingly, he did not make the Top 24, but Interscope producers managed to rush out a single called “What are Words” to  iTunes.

I guess Chris is one and done. Poor guy.
