Back home in Brandon, Wendy Ocasio said her son, Jeremy Rosado, is on a press tour in the Tampa Bay area after an emotional homecoming at Tampa International Airport, where they first learned that contestant Jermaine Jones is off the show.

In the end, there were tears and nothing but praise for Jeremy Rosado, whose family and friends stood by the "American Idol” hopeful, a student at the Brandon campus of Hillsborough Community College.

It's the end of an "American Idol" dream for 2009 Durant High School graduate Jeremy Rosado. Rosado on the March 8 "American Idol" show was visibly saddened to learn judges Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez had decided he should be eliminated from the competition.
