Last night, American Idol revealed the rest of its Top 24 contenders, and as quickly as it appeared that contestant Chris Golightly would get the chance to sing for American's votes, he was replaced by Tim Urban!
"It has been determined that Chris Golightly is ineligible to continue in the competition," Fox said in a vague statement. "American Idol contestant Tim Urban has replaced Golightly as part of the Top 24."
Ryan Seacrest didn't make things much clearer. "Must have broken a rule or maybe had previous deal," when a fan asked on Twitter, "Why Chris ineligible?"
The contestants will perform live for your votes starting next Tuesday when the women take the stage.
