'American Idol' Brittany Kerr

Hot and Dangerous

1/29/2012 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brittany Kerr as a child doing taekwondo
"American Idol" cheerleader babe Brittany Kerr is more than a pretty face -- she's a pretty face with a black belt in taekwondo!

Brittany tells TMZ she started studying martial arts in Charlotte when she was 8 (above) -- and earned her black belt after 4 years of kicking girls' and boys' butts. Brit says, "I definitely made some boys cry while sparring ... I had a killer high kick!"

Kerr is now 24 and says she's laid off the taekwondo, but still does some kick boxing to stay in shape.

Steven and Randy ... you've been warned.

Yeah, right. They probably give out black belts after a certain amount of time, like a graduation present. Kinda like your church giving you a Bible when you graduate from high school. The only way a little girl can beat a grown man is if she sucker kicked him in the nuts.

Hasn't she already been cut from the show? Is TMZ going to run multiple articles about everyone who made it past Round One? I'm more impressed by her publicist than her actual singing.

Even though she is 24 years old now, captioning a photo of an 8 year old as "hot" is sexualizing a child. Sorry, but I think TMZ ought to never associate sex terms with photos of children - it's extremely irresponsible journalism, probably generated by a man. Stop it.
