Chris Golightly, best known as the American Idol â€œOrphanâ€ (watch video here), earned his spot on American Idolâ€™s Top 24 but we didnâ€™t see him making through the rounds in Hollywood or the final verdict. Why? Chris was reportedly disqualified due to a misunderstanding related to an old contract.
Apparently Chris had a contract with a Boy Band until June 2009 but he failed to warn the producers of the show about it and therefore was disqualified. There is no official statement at the moment.
Chris was actually shown on the Top 24 and Top 12 guys group shot at the end of the show (guy with curly blonde hair in the photo above) but mysteriously disappeared during the individual â€œbooty shakingâ€ introductions, while Tim Urban took his place on American Idolâ€™s Season 9 Top 24.
There is some good news: Michael Lynche aka Big Mike will not be disqualified after his father revealed he was on the Top 24. American Idol producers reconsidered and gave Big Mike another chance. He deserves it!
