The buzz around American Idol hasn’t been all good this year, as grumbling over a few contestants and their past in the music biz has been going on, especially rumors revolving around Joanna Pacitti.

 

The aspiring songstress was rumored to be a plant in the competition, because she has friends at A&R recrods and had songs featured in movies like Legally Blonde and the Nancy Drew soundtrack.

 

Joanna has been disqualified and replaced with Felicia Barton, after Fox released a statement late Wednesday saying they wanted to "avoid the appearance of impropriety."

 

"It has been determined that Joanna Pacitti is ineligible to continue in the competition," the statement reads.
