Justin Guarini is setting the record straight about why he missed last month's

American Idol holiday special. Apparently, the happy-go-lucky crooner — who RCA reportedly just booted from its ranks — bailed on An American Idol Christmas due to "unresolved" contract issues with the show's producers. "I am grateful for all that American Idol has done for me," he said in a statement, "and look forward to resolving my differences with 19 Management and again being part of the [AI] family." Would someone please put a fork in his career, because I'm pretty sure it's done.
