Recapping the first round of auditions for American Idol, Jamie reflected that the judges may have passed Amy Brumfield merely out of sympathy; she’s kind of an odd bird who lives in a tent in the woods. But now it sounds like we won’t have to worry about Amy’s fate; it turns out she hasn’t been competing on the show for the last month or so.
Starz Uncut spotted this post on Amy’s Facebook wall from mid-December 2011, where she talked about how good it was to come home. When a friend asked why she was home so soon, she responded, you guys should know i don’t work well with others…. group day i got eliminated.
Someone doesn’t know the pattern of American Idol; they’re still in the auditions stage, and nowhere near group day.
To make matters worse, Celeb Dirty Laundry pointed out, TMZ has obtained Amy’s police records. She’s been arrested six times in the past seven years, often because of intoxication; one memorable arrest came about when she was so drunk that she peed herself at a Baskin Robbins.
People are saying that this could be Amy’s chance to turn things around, especially since she blew the judges away with her rendition of Alicia Keys‘ “Superwoman” on last night’s episode, but I can’t imagine that she has any sort of future with the show now. Even if she were somehow lying, the producers wouldn’t look well on this breach of contract.
