"A.I." Contestant's "At-Risk" Past

3/5/2008 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Danny Noriega"American Idol" wannabe Danny Noriega has issues.

We found out Danny attended Sierra (Continuation) High School in Azusa, Calif., a school dedicated to "at-risk" kids.

The crowd at the school? According to Sierra High's website, students are "significantly behind in credits -- and at risk of not graduating -- who want a second chance to succeed and achieve a high school diploma."

Danny graduated last year, but school sources tell us he had a rough time, working through his "gothic" phase -- that's when Danny boy went on his Christmas video rampage. One source says Danny had "multiple issues" which landed him at the school.

Judy??? Where are you???? Must have realized she was wrong.. We are all waiting for an apology.... LMAO!

PS. How did Idol Jump the Shark? That doesnt make any sense considering this stuff is said about contestants every single year. Danny is this years Sanjaya. Sure, he sings a bit better, but still as much of a dork and will be has been too

This site has gotten really pathetic! Live this boy alone. He's not only adorable and unique, he's talented. All you do is drag people down and you look like major losers while doing it.

Sanjaya was around because Howard Stern was having his fans vote for the worst singer!! FACT

I agree 100% with no. 67, Star. A certain block of voters will keep him in for awhile--but only awhile. Besides, he's a hit on "vote for the worst", so that should keep him around awhile!
