After weeks of auditioning and deliberations Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson narrowed down the idol contestants to 24 on Thursday (Feb 24). But the sigh of relief didn’t happen for one person.
7-time auditioner Jessica Cunningham gave Team Idol the middle finger after being cut on her 25th birthday.
Getting cut on my birthday is evil, Cunningham said in her exit interview. “[The judges] ruined my birthday. You know what I have to say to that?” she said, before launching into a double middle finger salute. “I love ya, but come on!”
Guess she won’t be watching the show anytime soon!
