Former "American Idol" finalist Asia'h Epperson is currently recovering from a bad car accident in which she suffered multiple broken bones ... including her jaw and 9 ribs ... TMZ has learned.

Multiple people close to Asia'h tell us ... the Season 7 semi-finalist has been hospitalized in L.A. ever since the wreck on Wednesday.

We're told Asia'h broke her jaw, pelvis, 9 ribs, and multiple vertebrae. We're told she also suffered injuries to her spleen, lung and kidney.

A rep for Asia'h tells us the singer's family is by her side ... and says doctors believe she'll make a full recovery.

Asia'h got to the final 16 during her run in 2008 ... the same year David Cook won the competition.

Hey, I feel bad for her injuries. But come on, somebody whose claim to fame is being a SEMI-finalist from 4 years ago is newsworthy? Really?

More proof that American Idol isn't the star-making machine that it claims to be. Once these people leave the show... who in the hell remembers their names.

TMZ, you might as well have reported a car accident that happened on Mars!

TMZ is pretty liberal with the word "Celebrity" in their heading...

This site is getting more and more like "Dancing With The Stars" a bunch of non-celebrities looking for their 5 minutes of fame. I feel bad she was injured, but aren't there any REAL stars who are newsworthy?

AMERICAN IDOL SUCKS! I am very sorry for the pain she is going through because of here injuries, and I wish her well. But AMERICAN IDOL SUCKS. Contestants usually have had previous recording contracts, no personality. Bogus auditions. Stop supporting this sh*t show. AMERICAN IDOL SUCKS!
