‘Idol’ Reject’s Mom Becomes Extra Roommate

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol contestants get to live in a posh pad this season, and it even came with an extra roommate.

That roomie was eliminee Jasmine Murray’s mom, who was with the teenage minor at all times during her stint on the show.

Murray – who was voted off Idol this past Wednesday (Mar. 11) – says her mom became kind of like the 14th roommate in the massive mansion where the Top 13 contestants lived and played.

Her fellow singers weren’t at all bothered by her mom’s presence and got along with her well.

Now that she’s off the show, Murray admits she’ll miss living in the cushy digs.

She’ll mostly miss the “big, spacious practice area” of the house, which is full of instruments for the singers to use.

Murray explains, “I was down there all the time! I loved that room because it had great acoustics, a keyboard – everything we needed.”

Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
