Some of you American Idol fans might remember Scott Dangerfield from the Milwaukee auditions. He was the kind of nerdy-looking guy who sang the Amos Lee song, “Dreamin’.” Jennifer Lopez said he was one of the best she’d heard on Idol. So whatever happened to Scott? We haven’t seen him at all during the Hollywood Week coverage so far.  But that’s because he actually dropped out of the competition before Hollywood Week even started!

Can this be true? An early favorite, someone all the judges had predicted would advance well into later stages of the competition just up and decided to drop out? We’ll give you a moment to pick your jaws up off the floor... But yes, it’s true. Scott did drop out of his own accord, because he wanted to focus on his education.

We guess that’s a good reason…
