Rick Perry Gets Voted Off ‘American Idol’-Style on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ [VIDEO]

Rick Perry Debate

As a comedian, Jimmy Kimmel was certainly sad to see Texas governor Rick Perry drop out of Republican primary this week. So he gave him a farewell more fitting of an ‘American Idol‘ contestant.

Perry, who will be the first to admit that he’s not a particularly polished public speaker, made gaffe after gaffe during his few months on the national stage, all of which made the jobs of  late-night hosts like Kimmel far easier.

So to send off the man who gave him so much, Kimmel compiled a video montage of Perry’s greatest flubs and mixed them up with footage of the ‘Idol’ judges giving contestants the boot. Watch Randy, Steven and J.Lo put an end to Rick Perry’s presidential ambitions below.
