Jermaine Jones will be kicked off “American Idol” on Wednesday’s show, following the revelation that the singer hid his criminal past from producers.

The finalist, who ironically was eliminated earlier in the season before being brought back, allegedly concealed that he was charged with two crimes — one violent — in 2011, and still has warrants out for his arrest.

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.
