Jermaine Jones

VS. 'Idol' Producers

The Confrontation [Video]

3/15/2012 6:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jones got a swift kick in the ass from reality last night ... when 'Idol' producers confronted the singer on tape and told him he's FIRED from the show for lying about his criminal past.

Jones took it well ... thanking executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick for the opportunity ... and then getting into the back of a waiting car ... not a cop car.

TMZ broke the story ... Jones has 4 warrants out for his arrest and a history of allegedly using multiple fake names with cops.

Goodbye Jermaine ... whoever you are.

'do everything in our power to help'?? so, lets humiliate him in front of millions of people...that should help destroy any chance of him turning his life around.. that was a shamefull thing for AI to have done..There are two sides to any story and that should have been addressed also.

Shame on Jermaine if he comes back on American Idol. If he has an ounce of integrity he wont play their game.

American Idol knew of his mischief related offenses. Jermaine admitted to the crimes during the American Idol application process, and he also lawyered up to clarify these matters with American Idol's legal staff.

American idol.......PLEASE TURN DOWN THE VOLUME of the orchestra......we (the fans) just want to heat THE CONTESTANTS VOICES AS THEY SING. Currently they are being drowned out by the orchestra! ..... Other than this major complaint, I love your show!
