Eff You, American Idol

Today I heard the troubling news that an American Idol contestant who didn't even make the top 24 may be sued by the show for cutting a record deal with Warner Brothers.
Those who watched will certainly remember Josiah Leming, the 19 year old who was living out of his car and whose mother has terminal cancer.
HEY. American Idol head honcho a-holes: Get over yourselves. We all know AI is less a talent show than a personality and beauty contest. If you want to reject someone with genuine talent that was immediately recognized by another company, you should be gracious enough to allow that person to move forward with their career.

  1. Why can he be sued? Do they sign a contract to not sign record contracts with other companies?
