On a side note... If this were a tackier show (heh), I would be all for them letting him have an exit montage played to "I Fought the Law and the Law Won." :rofl
He tweeted, "Awww I will no longer b on the show," .I dont know if he even gets all this.
Based on the report that AI wanted to show the "confrontation" on air, that makes me think he did get it. If he didn't, no confrontation, just confusion.
I read elsewhere someone (likely TPTB) deleted his account. Is that true? I don't know what his ID is, so I have no clue.
I wouldn't have chosen Jermaine as the wild card anyway but it makes me sick that he took the spot of another person hoping for that wildcard slot and now he's been disqualified.
Here is the latest update from TMZ with a fuller explanation.

Jermaine Jones Will Be Kicked Off 'American Idol' | TMZ.com
Jermaine Jones will be kicked off "American Idol" Wednesday night, after producers learned he concealed the fact that he was arrested twice last year and has outstanding warrants ... TMZ has learned.
As we first reported, producers discovered Tuesday that Jermaine had lied about his criminal history and that triggered the decision to confront him on camera Tuesday afternoon.
We're told one of the incidents involved violence, which was particularly troublesome to producers. He also lied to cops by giving them fake names both times he was arrested.
"A.I." sources tell us ... Jermaine will appear on the show tomorrow night before he is sent packing.
Over the last few days, we've been reporting that Jermaine told producers his father abandoned him 10 years ago, but his dad called TMZ and called B.S. on his son, saying they see each other regularly.
Jermaine began tweeting that he never told producers about his dad abandoning him. We're told the producers -- who knew Jermaine had made the statement -- became generally suspicious and began looking more closely at his background, and that's what led to the revelation of his criminal history.
Oh come on TMZ.....they don't do background checks as part of the normal procedure???? If I was the father of one of the young kids and my daughter was performing and my wife was there as her chaperone, I would not be thrilled with AI to learn that my family was close by someone with violence in his background.

So do you think the other kids will be given a pass this week as he is the one removed?
