FOX Speaks Up on Joanna Pacitti's Disqualification From 'American Idol'

February 17, 2009 03:43:45 GMT

Finally a statement from FOX is released regarding the disqualification of Joanna Pacitti from the Top 36 of "American Idol". Offering his words is FOX reality chief Mike Darnell who emphasized that the dismissal is strictly based on the "link" that host Ryan Seacrest has mentioned earlier and not due to the professional background that Pacitti has prior the audition.

Seacrest spilled last week that the producers do not want to risk anything when they found out that Pacitti has a rather close relationship to 19Entertainment execs, Michelle Young and Roger Widynowski. Darnell confirmed this saying, "Unfortunately, it was just a perceptional problem, that there (was) just too close a connection between (Pacitti and the employees), we felt." He added, "I think it was handled correctly."
