'Idol' Contestants Flee -- Our Mansion Is HAUNTED!

3/24/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

GHOSTS invaded the "American Idol" mansion in Beverly Hills -- and the finalists got so freaked, they MOVED OUT of the place Monday night for good ... TMZ has learned.

American Idol Mansion Haunted

The supernatural drama began after contestants complained about bizarre flickering lights inside the house ... followed by a spooky spider infestation.

But the paranormal activity that sent the contestants over the edge happened last week -- when several wannabes claim they watched a bed sheet suddenly take on a life of its own and FLOAT down an empty hallway!!!

And as if the ghosts weren't enough, Sunday's torrential rains caused the roof to leak like a mutha.

Sources connected with the production tell us ... the contestants FREAKED OUT and demanded to move ... and "Idol" producers obliged.

We're told the gang is now safely holed up in an undisclosed location ... where the only blinding white objects are Ryan Seacrest's teeth.

I don't believe the AI producers believe it is haunted. They moved them because of the wiring, spiders and the leak in the house mainly. Only the contestants would believe ghosts. Who leaked the story of haunted? Seems AI would not allow them to speak to media, so who leaked it?

Ghosts? That's no good, maybe they need to invite the GHOST HUNTERS to their show. I like to watch a lot of TV. My favorite show is of course TMZ. Where else are you going to find the best gossip and celebrity news? I watch my TMZ with my DISH Network employee subscription. DIRECTV sent me a flier recently and the pricing was outrageous. I will stick with watching the best in celebrity news on TMZ with the best TV provider, DISH Network.

So basically they're fleeing because the roof is leaking and there are spiders. That's it.

At least the ghosts have some musical taste. This year's contestants are pretty awful. Simon would never have put them through to Hollywood.

Ghost Hunters? Really? What a dumbass show that is.
Nothing but...
"DID YOU HEAR THAT??" "WHAT WAS THAT??" "DID I JUST SEE SOMETHING MOVE OVER THERE??

I figured out the scam early in the season and gave it up before wasting anymore of my time.

Wise up people!

I don't like kareoke so I don't watch the show. But I have heard in the news that the ratings are really low. Do they really think that this publicity stunt will get them more viewers?
