Homeless "Idol" Kicked Back to the Curb

5/22/2008 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This year's most tragic castoff, Josiah "I Live in My Car" Leming, got another dose of eff-off from "A.I." -- as he was sent packing from the finale after party at Skybar last night.

If he was homeless he'd ask you for some change to use the pay phone!

I like this kid. I really enjoyed his performance of the song Grace Kelly on the piano. Look it up on youtube.

He seems like a good-natured kid with a positive attitude. He could have gone all divo, but he took it in stride.

Keep your chin up, kid. L.A.'s a rough town.

AI's just pissed off because Josiah got a record deal before the show even ended.

Awweee, I love Josiah. Don't be so rough on him. He's actually fantastic. Definitely check out his myspace page /josiahleming and you can listen to his original music. Truly a gifted artist in the making and when his CD comes out in September (through Warner Bros) you guys will remember this kid!!
As a side note, the whole story about him being 'the homeless kid' living in his car was all trumped up by the AI producers. He was actually traveling the country in his car, performing and sharpening his musical talents. I sort of like the whimsical, free spirited approach to seeing the country.
