    Let's get this out of the way--Justin Guarini is a very talented singer. That said, he is one of the worst actors to ever (dis)grace the big screen and his movie, "From Justin to Kelly," was absolutely horrendous. The man should stick to singing and performing on stage on not in film.
  • The talented Guarini burst onto the scene during American Idol. One reviewer wrote: “He's got an 'X' factor that will knock you out...the whole package. American Idol was suppose to be searching for a star, but one fell from the sky and landed on stage."moreless

    The first time I watched AI, Justin Guarini immediately intrigued me. He had "it" straight out of the gate, and the sensation he generated was riveting to witness.
