American Idol contestant Chris Golightly was dropped from the top group of 24 yesterday. A source close to the show says he was dropped due to "lack of veracity", e.g. a lack of truthfulness. Yahoo! reports:
The person said Thursday that Golightly didn't disclose that he'd had a music contract, a point on which all contestants are queried because the show doesn't include singers with current contracts. It was Golightly's failure to mention the contract, not whether it was in force, that led to his departure, the person said.
I'm not watching Idol very closely but I think Golightly was well liked and had a good chance on the show. Are you watching Idol and if so, is this disappointing? -Dr.FB
