"Idol" Contestant Wigs Out

2/27/2008 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After once being linked to Britney Spears, "American Idol" contestant Robbie Carrico picked up one of the popwreck's habits -- a love for wigs!
Robbie Carrico

TMZ has learned the 26-year-old long-haired wannabe's mane is actually a wig and it's got "Idol" execs flipping out. Sources tell us Robbie never talks about his matted down piece and that makes production members feel like it's the blonde elephant in the room. It seems Simon was right last night -- Robbie is a fake!

Where's Sanjaya's pony-hawk or Kat McPhee's extensions when you need them?!

A rep for "Idol" would not comment.

I saw a picture of him with Britney Spears and his hair was short and all spiked up on top..it was even frosted..I thought it looked stupid, THEN I saw that this is actually a wig..it is NOT an improvement. This guy needs help..

When was American Idol called, "wear the best wig contest. Both women and men wear extensions or wigs, so what does that have to do with singing? Nothing. Are u that jealous, i cant think of anyting else. Leave the guy alone and let him sing. And if he were t win, it would be for his voice wihich i think is greeeaaaatttt. If he should be treated any other way because of that hairdo then its f#**# up. Robbie jus keep up the good work, and become the new Idol. Good luck!!!

I wear a wig, and it is because I have awful, thinning hair. I'd like to think people don't think of me as a fake. My wig looks the way my hair was when it was a little fuller.............and, same color.

MOST EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SHOW IS FAKE. LOOK AT THE BANTER BETWEEN COWELL AND SEACREST, OR BETWEEN PAULA AND SIMON. THEN THEY ALL HUG EACH OTHER AND CONGRATULATE EACH OTHER ON A GREAT SHOW. PuhLEASE!!!! ITS ALL FOR THE RATINGS. THE ONLY THING ANYONE SHOULD CARE ABOUT IS IF THEY CAN SING ! IT IS A "SINGING" COMPETITION ISN'T IT?

And what's wrong with West Virginia?
It's one of the most beautiful states!
And the people are wonderful too.
I went to college there and would go there again.
Why are people always cutting down West Virginia?

I thought it was a wig from the first time I saw him!! It has no part, its not extensions, it a wig. How fake. The girl Amanda has a bad hair style with the Cruella look going on but at least its not fake hair.
