"American Idol" contestant Jermaine Jones met with the show's producers to talk about his previous trouble with the law.
In dramatic fashion, "Idol's" Executive Producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick sat down with the 25-year-old vocal instructor from New Jersey -- who failed to disclose his criminal history (as required of all contestants).
Jones was arrested multiple times in the last year and gave police fake names during each arrest. The 6'8" finalist also has outstanding warrants.
Ryan Seacrest opened the live show, and said, "With the cooperation of law enforcement, we discovered information that left us with no choice but to eliminate one of our finalists from the competition. When you're doing a live show, anything can happen."
Jermaine took to his Twitter page and wrote, "Awww I will no longer b on the show."
