Justin Guarini

Birthdate: Oct. 28, 1978

Family Fun: Although born in Atlanta, Justin basically grew up in Doylestown Township, Pensylvania with his mother Kathy and stepfather Jerry. Justin Guarini is the youngest of eight children.

First Gig: Justin was accepted to sing with the Altanta Boys Choir at the young age of 4 years old! The Choir usually doesn't except kids under the age of six but made an exception for this talented cutie.

Biggest Influence: Justin Guarini has always had a thing for the King of Pop. His first concert was The Jackson's Victory Tour and he sung Who's Loving You Now? (a Jackson 5 song) at his audition for American Idol.

Justin Guarini Quote: "I love to be up on stage, to perform, to sing and dance, and if I can make one person smile and forget about their troubles in life, which most people don't realize are so temporary, then that's my job. "

Kelly Clarkson

Age: 20

Birthplace: Can't ya tell by her 'twang? Kelly was born and raised in good 'ole Texas! Kelly Clarkson was born in Burlston, Texas and raised in Fort Worth, Texas.

Influences: Kelly Clarkson has always had a soft-spot for Michael Bolton and country crooner Reba McIntyre. In fact, Kelly calls Reba McIntyre her "favorite singer of all-time." Still, Kelly Clarkson's fave song of all-time isn't by either artist. It's Kissing You by Des'ree off the Romeo + Juliet Soundtrack.

Kelly Clarkson Quote: "Like every other girl in the world, my most embarrassing moment had to do with a guy completely turning me down. His loss!"

RJ Helton

Hometown: Cumming, Georgia

The Name Game: RJ is short for Richard Jason. Before American Idol Richard Jason Helton shortened his name to R Jay Helton. His nickname, according to his fan sites, is Latino Lover. Hmmm... did they make that up or does he really call himself that?

Before American Idol: One of RJ Helton's jobs before singing and dancing on TV every week for American Idol was teaching little kids to dance.

RJ's Big Moves: Fans of American Idol must have noticed by now that RJ doesn't stand still when he sings. He's always wiggling and swiveling his hips. It's not some trademark move RJ Helton gave a lot of thought and planning to - it's just a nervous habit.

RJ Helton Quote:"My beliefs - my faith - the one thing that has forever and will forever remain constant."

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.
