Can You Hear Me Now? American Idol Sued!

The producers of American Idol are in a bit of a pickle.

Former contestant, Michael Simeon Smith, is now suing them for negligence!

Apparently, back in 2014, he suffered an ear injury that resulted in the loss of part of his eardrum – ouch! Almost exactly a year ago before he took the stage to perform, an audiologist rep from the show fitted him for an ear piece and he “immediately felt pain”. When the audiologist rep went to remove the earpiece, there went part of his eardrum. According to his lawsuit, “Plaintiff has been unable to perform music at the same level as prior to the incident, due to the absence of much of his eardrum.

The claim amount has not been disclosed.
