"Idol" Top 12 Say See Ya Later, Losers

3/7/2008 4:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ spies say the "Idol" party last night was fueled with emotion, and a little bitterness for good measure.
American Idol
We're told booted "Idol" Asia'h Epperson was torn up and overwhelmed, staying only for a few minutes before bolting. Contestants were most upset about Luke Menard getting the ax because they liked him -- they really, really liked him, although his singing kinda sucked.

Although no underage contestants were spotted Lohaning it up, Danny Noriega and Ramiele Malubay were pretty wrecked over his elimination. The two BFFs were inseparable.

Our spies say although all the contestants were there, there was no sign of Randy, Paula, Simon or Ryan. Contestants, meet pecking order.

Other "Idol" wannabeens of yore who came out to bask in the limelight for one last second included: "From Justin to Kelly" star Justin Guarini ('memba him), Season 4 creepy crooner Constantine Maroulis and last year's token rocker chick, Gina Glocksen -- who we're told looked fab.

Personally, I liked the earlier talent where these kids had no previous experience. Right off the strret..the farm..or what have you. Today, their just coming out of the woodwork (and will continue to outpoor in the future) to get the recognition they failed to get on their own. They're opportunists and it hurts the ones who's fresh talent would remain unrecognized.
I loved to watch them grow each week. Now it's simply watching already seasoned talent who couldn't compete with the competion in business. Let's get back to the basics where it all began and give the bedroom performing, shower singing, or wherever they may sing, the spotlight. I'm predicting the next season to be the outpouring of performers who failed to get a recording contract. When Idol first aired I think alot of who's on their now, thought idol was cheesy. But now they see where it can get them and just you wait and see idol eventually go down the tubes.

Welcome to TMZ's "click a link to get a hacker virus" comment section. If you avoid the millionaire / wealthy scam sites and watercooler links you will be fine.

I felt the same about Ramiele Maluby. STOP THE ACT already. Every time the camera is on her, she starts to bawl. It's getting old...
