Say it ain't so Dogg! Mario Vazquez has dropped out of American Idol! What scandal is lurking in his *closet*? Maybe he was a plant, a pro placed on the show to boost ratings and spy on the contestants like on "Manhunt". HA!

'Idol' shakeup: Mario out, Nikko back in

March 14, 2005

Spry song-and-dance man and Paula Abdul favorite Mario Vazquez has dropped out of Fox's "American Idol" competition for what are being called "personal reasons."

With Vazquez gone, ousted semifinalist Nikko Smith, who was voted out last week, rejoins the competition immediately and will compete as a member of the top 12. Smith received more votes than Travis Tucker during last week's show, in which the number of guys was reduced from eight to six.

This week's episode, which airs at 7 p.m. Tuesday, finds the guys and gals competing head-to-head for the first time this season. In addition to Smith, the remaining guys are Bo Bice, Anthony Fedorov, Constantine Maroulis, Anwar Robinson and Scott Savol. The gals are Lindsey Cardinale, Mikalah Gordon, Jessica Sierra, Vonzell Solomon, Nadia Turner and Carrie Underwood.

The live results show will air at 8 p.m. Wednesday
