OMG, an contestant on American Idol will be kicked off from the show on Wednesday for concealing a criminal past from the producers. The contestant has been arrested a few times and gave a fake name to police, plus they have warrants… how did he/she really get this far in the competition while keeping this secret! Who is it?

A contestant on “American Idol” will be kicked off the show Wednesday because the singer concealed multiple crimes from producers … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the show tell us … the contestant — one of the final 12 — was charged with 2 crimes in 2011, one involving violence. We’re told in both cases the contestant gave a fake name to cops when arrested.

In addition, we’re told the contestant has outstanding warrants — again, the singer concealed it from producers.

We’re told the contestant was confronted with the information on camera today and the footage will air on Wednesday’s show.

Update: According to Gossip Cop, Jermaine Jones will be going home! he confirmed he is leaving the show on Twitter! The tweet has been removed.

Jones confirmed his disqualification on Twitter late Tuesday, tweeting, “Awww I will no longer b on the show.”

Producers began investigating Jones’ background after conflicting reports emerged as to whether he and his father were really estranged, as he had claimed during his emotional audition, according to TMZ.
