American Idol contestant Chris Medina (he was the one with the fiancé who has a brain injury) tweeted this week that he was not invited to the finale. What gives?

Chris Medina's Idol diss

Medina captured America's hearts as he was trying to make a better life for himself and his fiancé, who was brain injured after a car accident. After Lopez told him the sad news that he didn't make it to the next round, she broke down into tears. "I just don't feel like I told him in the right way," she said.

Even though he didn't quite have the chops to make it to the top 24, a ticket for the finale of American Idol doesn't seem like too much to ask for.

"Just found out I will not be at the finale for #AmericanIdol sad and disappointed," Medina tweeted yesterday. After a fan asked him why, he tweeted, "Not asked. Then I asked for tickets and I told they can't. No harsh feelings."

He then followed up, tweeting: "Just want to let everyone know including #americanidol that I truly do not have bad feelings toward the show. They have helped me more than anyone will ever know! They created the opportunity to do what I love to help the person I love. I was simply... disappointed. I never felt nor will I feel cheated. Love everyone."
