michael lynche 320 'American Idol': Michael Lynche reportedly disqualified after dad violates confidentiality clauseWord is leaking that Michael Lynche has been removed from  “American Idol” for violating the confidentiality clause. Spoilers after the jump.

According to Joe’s Place Blog, which seems to the dirt on “Idol” spoilers, contestant Michael Lynche has been removed because his father confirmed to a Tampa Bay paper that Michael made the Top 24, which is a big no-no in “Idol” land.

Supposedly Lynche has been replaced by Antwan Michael, another Top 50 contestant who was cut during the Chair of Doom round.

Intrigue! And why couldn’t Michael’s dad keep his mouth shut? Our dad would be in TROUBLE if he did that to us.

We’re not really sure why this is grounds for dismissal, since the Top 24 leaks almost every year. But we suppose rules are rules. Still, it’s a major bummer for Michael.
