    Justin Guarini and Kelly Clarkson

    Idol's first winner and runner-up weren't exactly media-savvy -- they made the ill-fated movie From Justin to Kelly: The Tale of Two American Idols soon after America fell in love with them.

    William Hung

    He may have been one of Idol's worst singers, but Hung got his 15 minutes of fame -- and then some -- thanks to his outrageous version of Ricky Martin's 'She Bangs'. His style? The UC Berkeley tee and pleated dress pants say it all.
