Arizona Jail Goes Sing Sing Over "Idol" Posted Mar 22nd 2007 12:18PM by TMZ Staff Filed under: Wacky and Weird, American Idol
Not only are they behind bars, they're ready to sing in one! What a con test!
Maricopa County Sheriffs have developed their own version of "American Idol," called "Inmate Idle," in which 15 jailbirds battle for lockdown supremacy, not with homemade shivs, but with their singing! According to reps from the Sheriff's Office, the competition is an attempt to boost morale and give inmates a positive way to spend their jail time.
The vote for the six finalists will be held tonight, with Alice Cooper set to judge tomorrow night's live show. It's rumored that basketball legend Charles Barkley is interested in sitting at the judge's table as well.
The Sheriff who greenlit the event, Joe Arpaio, is notorious for his "unique" treatment of prisoners -- his inmates wear pink jumpsuits and live in tents in the middle of the Arizona desert. No need to say that anyone's singing could get them arrested. :-*qc

PM warns Iran over Navy captives Downing Street said the UK could end up releasing evidence proving the group had not ventured into Iranian waters.
Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett has called for their "speedy return".
Meanwhile, the family of the only woman detained, Faye Turney from Shrewsbury, Shropshire, has said this is a "very distressing time" for them.
The BBC has been told the group are being held at an Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps base in Tehran.The prime minister's official spokesman said Mr Blair's remarks about a "different phase" did not refer to any extreme diplomatic action, such as expelling Iranian diplomats from Britain or military action.
"We have been clearly stating that we are utterly certain that the personnel were in Iraqi waters.
"We so far have not made explicit why we know that, because we don't want to escalate this."
Britain's former ambassador to Iran, Sir Richard Dalton, said "different phase" could mean generating pressure on Iran from the international community.
"I expect he means that we shall have to step up criticism and generate additional international pressures on Iran," he said.
"It could be that they think that by dramatising the fact that these people were taken on an international mission while in Iraqi waters even further, will give Iran pause and give them a chance to rethink."
HMS Cornwall's area of operations
"These people have to be released," the prime minister told GMTV.
"What we are trying to do at the moment is to pursue this through the diplomatic channels and make the Iranian government understand these people have to be released and that there is absolutely no justification whatever for holding them.
"I hope we manage to get them to realise they have to release them. If not, then this will move into a different phase."
There is speculation that the capture was linked to the seizure of five Iranians by US forces in Iraq.
Mr Blair said the situations were "completely distinct" as any Iranian forces inside Iraq were breaching a UN mandate.
"In the end, it is a question really for the Iranian government as to whether they want to abide by international law or not," he said.
In a statement issued via the Ministry of Defence, sailor Ms Turney's family said they were grateful for the support they had received from everyone. r Blair was said the most important thing was the welfare of the eight sailors and seven marines from HMS Cornwall and securing their release.
"While we understand the media interest in the ongoing incident involving Faye, this remains a very distressing time for us.
"We are grateful for the support shown to us by all personnel involved and appreciate it, but would request that our privacy is respected."
Iran says they were trespassing in Iranian waters when they were seized on Friday - but the prime minister said the group were in Iraqi waters under a UN mandate. :-/QC

Floodlights are aiding rescuers sifting rubble for signs of life after the devastating Italian earthquake, while thousands face a night in shelters.
At least 150 people are dead, dozens missing, 1,500 injured and some 50,000 homeless after the pre-dawn quake struck L'Aquila and its region.
Emergency crews have reportedly pulled 60 people alive from the rubble.
Survivors are being housed in hotels or a tent city which has been erected in the medieval hill city.
A BBC correspondent in L'Aquila says there was a strong aftershock in the city around 2200GMT, which lasted for around two seconds and made the ground feel like jelly.
It was the strongest in a number of tremors felt throughout the day.
Many houses in L'Aquila have been reduced to piles of rubble, dotted with crushed cars. At least 5,000 rescue workers are in the region and hospitals, Reuters reports, have appealed for help from doctors and nurses throughout Italy.
Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has said the country has the resources to handle the disaster.
As dozens of after-shocks rattled the region, many survivors were being bussed to hotels on the Adriatic coast, where up to 10,000 places have been made available.
The state of emergency in place means that more resources can be brought in to give the region what it needs, the BBC's Duncan Kennedy reports from L'Aquila.

Italian rescuers work into night
"We're hoping they give us a tent or something to sleep under tonight," Isenia Santilli, 70, told AFP news agency as she took shelter at a L'Aquila sports field where the Red Cross was feeding survivors.
Francesco Rocha, commissioner of the Italian Red Cross, put the number of homeless at about 50,000.
First priority for the agency, he told the BBC, was to save the lives of people still under the collapsed buildings.
"Second, is to organise the lives of the homeless. We are arranging field kitchens, beds and other items to organise their lives for the next days."
Between 3,000 and 10,000 buildings are thought to have been damaged in L'Aquila, making the 13th Century city of 70,000 uninhabitable for some time.

Medieval city, founded in the 13th Century Capital of the mountainous Abruzzo region Population 70,000, with many thousands more tourists and foreign students Walled city with narrow streets, lined by Baroque and Renaissance buildings
Historic town in ruins
Parts of many of the ancient churches and castles in and around the city have collapsed.
L'Aquila is considered one of Italy's architectural treasures.
"The damage is more serious than we can imagine," Giuseppe Proietti, a culture ministry official in Rome, told the Associated Press.
"The historic centre of L'Aquila has been devastated."
Correspondents note that the very age of many of the country's buildings makes them particularly vulnerable to earthquake damage.
Italy lies on two fault lines and has been hit by powerful earthquakes in the past, mainly in the south of the country.
Much of the centre of L'Aquila had to be rebuilt after an earthquake in 1703.
Are you affected? Are you in L'Aquila, Onna or Castelnuovo? QC
PASCAGOULA, Miss. -- A rural woman shocked deputies when they found her alert and coherent after being shot in the head at close range by her husband.
She even made a cup of tea, according to one of the deputies.
"There's no way she should be alive," Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd said. "The bullet completely passed straight through her brain. It entered at the middle of her forehead and exited from the back of her head. She should be dead. It's one of the most unreal, bizarre things I've ever seen."
Byrd said that Donald Ray Sexton shot his wife Tammy in the forehead at 12:10 a.m. Tuesday, then went to the back porch of their home on Billy Hinton Road in the Harleston community in north Jackson County and fatally shot himself.
Deputies believe that the couple had been arguing. Totally unreal , yes xiØn That would be your kind of Luck - Well i think because the Brain is Halved -- geee i was going to just say some very intelligent thing , no Here it is ..He just moved the Brain from the center , if she lives - the movement of the Brain should change the Whole way She Thinks - Maybe he Cured Her QC

John P. Wheeler II R.I.P video surfaced of him stumbling around in a daze days before he died.
Dressed in a dark suit with no tie or overcoat, carrying his left shoe in his right hand, John Wheeler looked lost and confused as he wandered in a Wilmington parking garage on Dec. 29.
Police said they have other surveillance video showing him inside a historic Wilmington building that houses the headquarters of chemical giant DuPont on the evening of Dec. 30, hours before he was found dead.
The state medical examiner says Wheeler, 66, was murdered.
Police won't say how.
Detectives trying to nail down his final hours found several witnesses in Wilmington - six miles from his home in New Castle, Del. - who saw or spoke to him.
Most mistook the distinguished graduate of West Point, Harvard and Yale, who had a house in Delaware and a luxury condo in Harlem, for a homeless person , I thought, "Something is wrong here. The man is lost,'" said Wilmington parking garage attendant Kathleen Boyer, who spoke to a disheveled Wheeler two days before his body fell out of a garbage truck on New Year's Eve.
He told Boyer he'd been robbed, was staying at a downtown hotel and was looking for his Hertz rental car.
Wheeler's own car was parked in his monthly spot in a garage a few blocks away, police said. His comfortable home sat empty in nearby New Castle.
"He looked like he was tired. His eyes was very red. We didn't smell no alcohol," Boyer told WTXF-TV in Philadelphia. "I thought the man had [dementia] or something."
Boyer said she offered him money, but he wouldn't take it, saying he only wanted directions to Front St., a main drag in town that he should have been familiar with.
Wheeler worked in the federal government for decades and was best known as the man who got the Vietnam Veterans Memorial built in Washington.
The ex-Pentagon official found dead on New Year's Eve was seen disoriented the day before his body was found. Surveillance video shows John P. Wheeler II QC

The IOC says NBC has retained its hold on U.S. Olympic television rights by defeating rival bids from ESPN and FOX and securing a four-games deal through 2020 worth nearly $4.4 billion.
NBC won the bid less than a month after the resignation of longtime sports and Olympics chief Dick Ebersol in a dispute with the new owners from Comcast. The victory extends NBC's reign as the Olympic network in the United States, a period stretching back 20 years.
The decision was announced officially by International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge at a news conference with Comcast chief executive Brian Roberts, new NBC sports chairman Mark Lazarus and other executives.
NBC now will have exclusive rights to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, as well as the 2018 Winter Games and 2020 Olympics, whose sites have not yet been chosen.
IOC TV rights negotiator Richard Carrion said the deal is worth $4.38 billion overall.
