‘Idol’ Contestant Canned After Confidentiality Breach

Jan 25, 2010  •  Post A Comment

One of the 24 semifinalists on this season’s "American Idol" has been replaced in the Fox reality competition because his father breached the show’s confidentiality rules, the New York Post reports.

The Post, citing the ‘Idol’ spoiler Web site Joe’s Place, says the father of finalist Michael Lynche leaked to the St. Petersburg Times that his son made it to the semifinals. Lynche was replaced over the weekend when the producers learned of the breach.

  1. I’d be sooooo pissed.

  2. thanks dad.

  3. Hey Idol, give the guy a break. His Dad did it, maybe because he was so proud. What difference does it make anyway? I never heard of the guy and maybe, just maybe, it’d be a great PR move to forgive his Dad and let the kid prove himself. After all with the Paula fiasco and Simon taking off after this year, work the wave of press, then build it up to where you finally let him back in… by phone vote! Remember your own tagline; They all started somewhere!

  4. The show should have put into the contracts the need for the contestants to not reveal anything to their parents.
    This is horrible.
