New Diet Dr. Pepper Commercial Features None Other Than...

Justin Guarini
Former "American Idol" star Justin Guarini is making a comeback...sort of. The singer appears in a new commercial for Diet Dr. Pepper, but he looks decidedly different.

Guarini, 36, plays "Lil' Sweet" in the ad, which shows a woman in an office seeking a low-calorie beverage. Guarini, miniturized, slides from the hallway into the kitchen on his knees sporting red hair and a very shiny outfit.

When the woman asks if he works there, he replies, "No, Lil' Sweet is self-employed." Then he slides out of the room.

Yup, Kelly Clarkson Hooked Up With Her 'American Idol' Co-Star

Kelly Clarkson Confesses She & Justin Guarini Dated 'A Little Bi
Kelly Clarkson has opened up about a past romance -- she dated her fellow "American Idol" co-star Justin Guarini way back when.

During an interview on "Watch What Happens Live," host Andy Cohen asked if the pair ever hooked up, and the singer clarified: "We didn't date during 'Idol,' which everybody thought we were dating."

The pair, who came in first and second place during the first season of the singing competition, went on to make the 2003 romantic comedy "From Justin To Kelly," which brought them closer.

Clarkson plays "Plead The Fifth" on WWHL:

'American Idol' Recap: Was This The Most Boring Finale Ever?

Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery
The most boring finalists ever. That seemed to be the conventional wisdom going into the evening. That, despite a strong start, this season of ‘Idol’ was destined to fall into oblivion with two dull finalists that wouldn’t be able to deliver the finale this Renaissance season deserved.

Yes, that might be true. It may have been more interesting to see James square off against Pia or Jacob take on Haley, but that doesn’t necessarily mean this is the most boring collection of contestants ever, does it?

Here’s a ranking of finale pairings from least boring to most boring:

Singer Justin Guarini is the latest star to become a dad after welcoming a son on Tuesday.

The former "American Idol" runner-up is a new father after his wife Reina Capodici gave birth to little William Neko Bell Guarini.

The couple's new arrival was due in March but his timing was perfect for Guarini, who wrapped his role in Broadway's "American Idiot" musical on Sunday.

He tells, "Quite a polite fellow for waiting until late Monday, early Tuesday to make his entrance. With a full head of curly brown hair, wide open and alert eyes he came charging into the world. Reina is doi...

2010 Grammy Awards Fashion
Gold and beige were hot colors at last night's Grammy Awards. Beyonce looked fantastic in a form-fitting Stephanie Rolland gown, while Katy Perry wore the same shade in a dress by Zac Posen, complete with gold flowers. Sexy "Tik Tok" pop star Ke$ha wore a flirty gold fringed dress. Carrie Underwood took the stage in a strapless gold gown but wore a white dress with an asymmetrical neckline on the red carpet.

Fergie stood out in her electric blue and gold dress, which had a hint of Egyptian flare. Taylor Swift was one of our top picks of the night in a blue sparkly floor-length Kaufman F...

'American Idol' Mega Diary - A Blow By Blow Of Last Night's Event

Two hours, wall-to-wall performances, and the "American Idol" result all in one place? Sounds like the perfect opportunity for a mega diary.

8:00 - Wow, the graphics on the opening with the contestants' name look like they were the group final for a high school A/V class. It never ceases to be amazing how bad the graphics can look on something so prominent.

8:01 - Whose idea was it to dress them both in head-to-toe white? What is this? A Mormon baptism?

8:02 - Joely Fisher with baby: "Hey America, did you know "'Til Death" just got renewed again? Muahahahahaha."


A Pop Culture Focus Group

5/12/2009 9:30am EDT
On a seemingly normal sunny Sunday morning, a few lucky "My Life, Made Possible By Pop Culture" readers gathered at a local Los Angeles theater for something they had only previously seen advertised as a "poor man's Chelsea Lately roundtable." The pop culture fans weighed in on everything from the leak of Eminem's new album to the new VH1 shows. They laughed; they ate cupcakes; and they found they agreed…at least on most topics.

Late last week, NBC announced their new fall line-up, which was ripe with an almost surprisingly equal amount of comedy, reality, and drama and included quite ...
