It only took a day for one potential American Idol to go from a semi-finalist to disqualification. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joanna Pacitti was disqualified from the American Idol competition.
While fans complained about her previous record deal and music videos, like last season's Carly Smithson, that wasn't the main reason Pacitti was booted from the show. It was revealed that Pacitti had previous friendships with executives from series creator Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment production company, which she did not disclose earlier on.
Felicia Barton, who was sent home on last night's episode, will replace Pacitti in the field of 36 semifinalists.
