American Idol Mario Vazquez Leaves Show

Published: 2005-03-14
A sheer contender for this season's American Idol has been the stylin' and energetic Mario Vazquez who prompted a fan following with Stevie Wonder's "Do I Do" and the Bee Gees' "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart". Already in Idol's top 12, Fox announced Vazquez has officially withdrawn from the competition citing that he must for personal reasons.

The show has decided to restore Nikko Smith's fate and bring him back to even out the competition. Fox, by Sunday at 1pm PST had erased top 12 information on Vazquez and replaced it with Smith; that's show biz for you folks.

I was so shocked and upset when I heard that Mario withdrew from the competition. I loved him so much. He was so talented. I knew from the beginning that he was going to be the next American Idol. He was the best contestant on the show. I looked forward to the show every week to see him sing and now that he's gone...it doesnt matter who wins. He was the best one!!!!
I wish that he could come back but it's too late. Hopefully, his many fans, including myself, will see him in the future!

This really sucks big time. He was my favourite. The show is not going to be the same with out him. I dont even know if I want to tune in anymore.

If I were Mario, I'd be relieved. While watching the show might be fun, actually winning american idol is the last thing I would want. It's basically like selling your soul to the devil. You have no creative control, no say in the music-making process, nothing.

Good for you, Mario.

GREAT VOICE,GREAT ON STAGE! Had his own thing going. I will miss him and so will others. But he had choices he had to make and I respect him for making a difficult decision. I'm sure he will do well, he still has time on his side.
GOOD LUCK!!!

He is such a great singer. It's stupid to leave a show when you know everyone votes for you. He left all those fans of him behind and will never be forgotten as well as Paula,Simon,and Randy Jackson. This is really stupid. He needs to come back!!!! At least we can say he made it to the top 12. He may want to audition again next year..but we'll see.

I seriously do not know what could've been SO big that Mario had to leave. I really believed he was going to be the next American Idol. Everyone loved him and he always did great. i was shocked. I still hope he continues trying to become a singer though. I'm gonna miss him. i don't think the show will be the same without him.

I believe Mario had to do what he felt was in his best interest. With the publicity he did get, someone will find him and give him a contract he deserves. Good Luck Mario...Until then.

I was so dissapointed when i heard he left, but I respect him. I will miss him. He was the best and, certainly, the hottest! I think we will be seeing him again. He so great and, obviously, loves music so why would he stop singing. Once he takes care of his personal stuff I think he'll be back.

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! That's all I can say. He had no personal reasons. You know what I think, I think he got a secret offer by another music company and was told to drop out in order to be signed to another contract. And or he used American Idol as publicity and then decided to have his own record deal without signing a contract to Simon's Record Company.

WHAT A SHOCK, WHEN WE REALIZED THAT MARIO HAD LEFT THE SHOW. FOR WHATEVER REASON I THINK HE SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIX HIS FAMILY PROBLEMS AND COME BACK TO THE SHOW. HE DEFINETLY IS ONE OF THE TOP TWO. WE RESPECT HIS PRIVACY, AND WISH HIM WELL. HE COULD OF BEEN OUR NEXT AMERICAN IDOL.

Mario, despite the rumors, left because he received a contract. Although many fans are upset because of this, he thought it would be most beneficial to him and his career. That's all I know as of now.

Mario, when I heard the news about you dropping from the competion I felt sad.

I really looked forward to watching the show just to see and hear you perform. Noone else....just you! You're not only adorable, and sensational, but you radiant on stage. You possess a unique appeal that I have never seen in any performer. Mario rules!!! God bless!
