‘Idol’ fans want Joanna Pacitti disqualified
A number of American Idol fans want Joanna Pacitti out of the competition because of “her background” and “the advantage she may have if she makes it to the public vote”.
Fans are upset that she’s already had a record deal and starred on Broadway. She’s also been criticized for using the program in order to boost her singing career.
The 24-year-old contender got her first big break when she joined the cast of “Annie” on Broadway at age 11.
After moving to Los Angeles at age 16, Joanna has signed to A&M Records, and has had songs featured on the soundtracks of Legally Blonde, First Daughter, Nancy Drew and the Bratz movie. Her song “Out From Under” was even covered by Britney Spears on her recent CD, “Circus”.
In 2006, she released an album on Geffen called “This Crazy Life”. But with no commercial success, she was dropped from the record label.
And Joanna has already been a part of a reality TV show. She was featured in one of MTV’s “True Life” episodes, which followed her as she worked her singing career.
What do you think? Should Joanna be disqualified?
