Chris Golightly axed from American Idol, replaced by Tim Urban

American Idol’s top 24 was announced Wednesday and much to the dismay of many, singer Chris Golightly has been disqualified.

Ryan Seacrest took to his official Twitter account to say:

been determined that Chris Golightly is ineligible to continue on IDOL, contestant Tim Urban has replaced Golightly as part of the Top 24

Meanwhile, previous contestant Samantha Musa offers some insight as to why he got the axe from the competition. On her Twitter, she said:

“Just got off the phone with Chris GoLightly. He was disqualified yesterday, after already being told he was in the Top 24, over some bogus old contract. The contract expired, but they disqualified him for not telling them. He is talking to lawyers, but doubt they can do anything. You’re allowed to have old contracts, they just need to know about them. I think he put that he had it, but the guy he was in it with called Idol and said he still had contractual rights over him. Finally found the contract, expired in June. He is upset cause he says it was a misunderstanding.”

What do you think of the situation?
