The guys both made it far in their seasons – Justin was the runner-up in season one while Constantine was the sixth place finalist in season four.

Justin recently wrote an article for the Los Angeles Times about his experience on the show.

“I’ve seen the highs. I’ve seen the lows. I’m somewhere in the upper middle but I’ll never be ashamed of being a part of American Idol,” he said. “I’ll never be ashamed of everything I did on American Idol or after because it makes me who I am. I had the great fortune of being able to be on the face of every magazine, newspaper and have this huge exposure and then I was able to go and have a private life on my own terms and then get back into the business the way I’ve wanted to.”
