Josiah Lemming Scores a Major Record Deal.
Celebrity Dirty Laundry states that Josiah Lemming the supposedly homeless kid who just missed out on making the top 24 on American Idol, now has a major record deal with Warner Bros.
This kid sings with a british accent so it would have been interesting to hear him sing the Beatles songs.
A lot of musos who were to cool to audition for Idol this year will be quietly seething – Josiah did not have to go through the final’s theme nights, so did not lose any of his musical credibility by having to sing disco. But in less then 15 mins on TV he managed to score a record contract. That has got to be easier then slogging it out in grungy pubs night after night.

The American Idol media juggernaut has gone into overdrive with the announcement of the top 24. It is amazing how so much information can been found out about these people.
LA Times Blog has a good little article that summarises each contestent.
Josiah Leming the 18 year old who lived out of a car did not make it to the top 24. I think he should of compared to some of the more bland male singers that got through. There has been much debate about his rejection.
However apparently all is not lost as it is rumoured he will appear on the Ellen De Generes show which will generate a lot of publicity. If he can tone down his whininess he should do well.

Article here it also states that why has Idol not revealed the record contract in the show?
