American Idol (S1) Alums: Where Are They Today?

By InTouch Weekly.

It may be season 14 already, but what happened to the 'Idol' alums of seasons past? Join us as we take a look at the lives of some of the most memorable faces of season one!

  • EJay Day

    By InTouch Weekly.

    After 'Idol' wrapped up, EJay switched gears briefly and experimented with song-writing, co-authoring a song on Raven-Symone's 'Undeniable' album. He also worked as a cruise-line entertainer.

  • Jim Verraros

    Jim may not have won 'Idol', but that didn't stop him from releasing his debut album 'Rollercoaster.' Aside from making music, you can also see him in films like 'Eating Out.'

  • A.J. Gil

    By InTouch Weekly.

    While A.J had a memorable run on 'Idol', his commercial musical career has yet to take off. Nevertheless, this family man is still making music independently. Keep on truckin' A.J!

  • Ryan Starr

    By InTouch Weekly.

    Post 'Idol', Ryan released the hugely successful iTunes single 'My Religion,' and formed a rock band called 'Aces.' She's also made several TV appearances, and is al mom to a two-year-old!

  • Christina Christian

    By InTouch Weekly.

    No longer pursuing music professionally, Christina is now a dedicated mother and IT professional, though we're certain she still finds opportunities to show off the pipes now and again.

  • R.J. Helton

    By InTouch Weekly.

    R.J found some success in the Christian music market with his album 'Real Life', but hasn't released any material in recent years. He may be inactive, but his fans still love him!

  • Tamyra Gray

    By InTouch Weekly.

    After dropping her self-written debut album, 'The Dreamer,' Tamyra acted in the likes of 'Boston Public,' Broadway's 'Rent,' and even starred in fashion campaigns for H&M. You go girl!

  • Nikki McKibbin

    By InTouch Weekly.

    Nikki is probably best known for her appearance on 'Celebrity Rehab,' but nowadays, she's looking better than ever. She even accompanied her son during his 'Idol' Season 13 audition!

  • Justin Guarini

    By InTouch Weekly.

    Oh the nostalgia! How can we forget 'From Justin to Kelly?' His debut acting effort aside, Justin has had a successful entertainment career, from music to hosting, and most recently, Broadway.

  • Kelly Clarkson

    By InTouch Weekly.

    And last but not least, this 'Idol' alum needs no introduction. Kelly has dominated the pop charts for over a decade, and has multiple Grammys under her belt. Not bad at all!
