'American Idol' vet wants on 'The Voice'


Millions of people audition for musical signing shows on television. Is it fair for someone who already lost on one of these programs to try and get his way on another?

Fair or not, that is what Jermaine Jones wants to do. Jones, who was a semifinalist on 'American Idol's' 11th season, tweeted today that he intends to audition for NBC's 'The Voice.'

"Are you ready the #mainetrain is taking off again..... My audition is next month I need all your support," he wrote, posting 'The Voice's' logo.

Auditions for 'The Voice' are scheduled for February 16 in New York City. Would the show's producers really considered someone who appeared on the competition?

Jones was dropped by 'American Idol' after it was revealed that he fibbed about "multiple crimes." Producers found out about his outstanding warrants, including using falsified names with police. Jones pled guilty to these charges and paid a fine and court costs. Does he deserve a second chance?

Jones has kept busy since getting the boot. He is filming a movie in Philadelphia with former Philadelphia Eagle Jeremiah Trotter, and appeared onstage in Philadelphia at an "Idols Live" tour stop last summer. 

He is currently filming a video for "All Around the World," a single he released on iTunes in December. 

Should 'The Voice' sign him up?

You don't have to apologize. For someone that called me bitter though, that comes off as a little bit of the pot calling the kettle black.

Part is personal. I just didn't like him, or his style of singing. I think lying about his past was also too sneaky for me. Everyone should get a chance with their talent. He had his. Another reason for me to not watch The Voice. Sorry.
