Jermaine Jones was formally disqualified from American Idol 2012 for not revealing that he had outstanding arrest warrants last year in New Jersey; and the talks between him and show producers was aired on a segment on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, as shown in the video below.

As featured on Fox on Wednesday night on a taped segment, American Idol show producers Ken Warwick and Nigel Lythgoe talked with Jermaine Jones, a notably strong contender among the Top 12 finalists, about his alleged cases that he did not tell to them earlier.

As reported earlier, TMZ revealed that Jones, 25, a vocal instructor from Pine Hill, will be disqualified from the show and he even tweeted about it “Awww I will no longer b on the show”, but deleted his tweet later after he retweeted replies from his fans, with his Twitter account (@JJonesAI11) eventually was deleted.

“You were incumbent to tell us the truth about all of this, and it appears that you just haven’t on any level,” Warick told Jones, who was dubbed by host Ryan Seacrest as the “Gentle Giant”, and was joined by Joshua Ledet and Jeremy Rosado as the Bottom 3 for Boys last Thursday’s elimination round.

“I didn’t want to get judged. I didn’t want to get penalized for anything that happened in the past.” Jones replied, who was also was one of the viewer-selected top 13 finalists after the judges gave him a last-minute spot in this season’s male semifinalists.

Jones, who was among the American Idol 2012 Top 12 finalists scheduled to perform on Wednesday night, allegedly did not use his real name when he was arrested; which he did not deny when he was confronted by Warwick and Lythgoe.

Apparently, the revelation of Jones‘ criminal history came after TMZ reported that he lied when he told American Idol producers that his father abandoned him 10 years ago, which his father denied and said that they have been seeing each other regularly.
