Just a couple hours ago it was revealed that "American Idol" finalist Jermaine Jones has been disqualified after it was discovered he concealed multiple crimes from the show's producers.

Earlier, Jones confirmed his departure from the show on Twitter, saying,

"Awww I will no longer b on the show."

It was revealed that Jones was arrested twice in 2011, with one arrest having to do with violence.  In both arrests, Jones reportedly gave the police a fake name.  Jones also failed to tell "American Idol" producers of his outstanding warrants, which lead to his disqualification.

Neither "American Idol" nor Fox have commented on the situation, but Jones' departure from the show is expected to be covered in Wednesday night's episode.
