Alleged 'American Idol' semifinalist Michael Lynche disqualified

By Reality TV World staff, 01/25/2010 

Michael Lynche may be paying a hefty price for his proud papa confirming he's an American Idol Top 24 ninth-season semifinalist.

The St. Petersburg native -- who went by the moniker "Big Mike" during the American Idol audition process -- appears to have been disqualified from Idol's ninth season, the anonymous online spoiler known as Joesplace reported Friday.

Lynche's father Marque Sr. had confirmed -- in an apparent violation of Idol's confidentiality agreements -- that his son made the season's Top 24 in a St. Petersburg Times report last Wednesday.

Lynche had previously been identified as a ninth-season Top 24 semifinalist by Joesplace, who has managed to correctly prematurely reveal the identities of American Idol's semifinalists for the last two years.

Fox declined to comment on Lynche's potential Top 24 involvement and disqualification when contacted by The New York Post on Sunday.

Lynche -- whose brother Marque Jr. was an third-season semifinalist in 2004 -- has allegedly been replaced in the ninth season's Top 24 by Antwan Michael, a teenager from Highstown, NJ, according to Joesplace.

American Idol's ninth-season Top 24 semifinalists will officially be revealed during the show's February 17 broadcast.
