Troup tossed from ‘Idol’

Grammy contest winner sent packing

Robyn Troup, the 19-year-old singer from Houston who won the chance to sing with Justin Timberlake at the Grammys Sunday, was tossed from “American Idol 6” in Tuesday’s telecast.

Troup made it through the first round in Hollywood and was sent packing during the group round when she sang with fellow Texas contestant Sundance Head and another woman. Her disqualification was based on her not performing well enough for the judges.

While she won the Grammy contest, she pretty much did not reach the top 50 on Fox’s “Idol.” For the “My Grammy Moment” contest, Troup beat out thousands of other contestants who submitted videos of unaccompanied singing.

Grammy viewers voted online to select a winner, but during the Grammy competition, no mention was made of Troup being an “Idol” contestant.
