Was This Dude Eliminated from American Idol for Not Conforming?

February 12, 2007 / Posted by:

He has been dubbed “The Fidel Castro” of “American Idol.Sean Michel auditioned in Memphis and proved you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover when he blew everyone away with his version of Johnny Cash’s “God’s Gonna Cut You Down.” It’s now been reported that he was eliminated in the Hollywood round of the reality show after he refused to cut his hair and shave his beard.

Sean was unable to discuss this matter due to his confidentiality agreement, but he confirmed that he hasn’t shaved his beard or cut his hair.

I wouldn’t be surprised. This show is mostly about image. They say they want people that are different, but it boils down to what you look like or what they can market you as. Yes, Taylor Hicks was different but he was dubbed “the George Clooney” even though he looked nothing like him.
