Deep Discounts on "American Idol" Irregulars

10/11/2007 6:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Guarini and Kimberley Locke didn't win "American Idol," but they are charging on with their careers and performing -- at the opening of a Texas outlet mall! For the love of Tiffany!
Kimberley Locke and Justin Guarini
While it may not be as high profile as a residential development or a regional hot air balloon festival, Justin and Kimberley will be doing their best to entertain discount shoppers at the grand opening of The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso on Friday. "From Justin to Kelly" never looked so good! To add insult to injury, Kimberley's name is even spelled wrong in one instance.

At this rate, it won't be long before Bo Bice is at a multiplex near you -- singing in the parking lot!

Who gives a rats ass. American Idol is nothing more than a revenue machine for FOX. Who, other than Kelly Clarkson, has had a lasting career. Clay Aiken came in 2nd place and went on to make more money than Ruben. It's a sad thing when people whore themself out to the world for simple publicity. Unlike real musicians, these Kariokee singers spend hours being fed BULL that they can sing, and for what, so that one day they might get a break. I have more respect for Jewel, she lived on the streets and wrote her own music.

That saddens me to see that Kim Locke has had to stoop to such a low level with her singing engagements. This girl can really sing a song or two and has had two moderately successful CD's out. She was a contestant on AI Season two and came in Third place to Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard. I for one agree That American Idol is nothing more than a money making scam for Fox, and everyone knows that on Season Two, Clay should have won, and Kim should have been second with Ruben third.Anyway, Kim don't commit career suicide here-keep far far away from J.G.!!!

f-em.....how about Carrie Underwood, whose first album has sold more than 6 million copies and won her scores of awards?! In fact, "Before He Cheats" (from that album) is STILL on the Hot 100, destined to become one of the longest running hits in Billboard's history! Carrie will be around for a long time.

Good, I hate American Idol. These two are no talents and I wouldn't even want to meet them for free.

Actually, I would rather work at Hooters. What a career killer for both of them.It will hurt their image to do this.

To #12: because Carrie Underwood had hit songs. It is all about Hit Songs. Not singing ability.Never has been.

Their getting paid for doing a job. Much like the paparazzi & tabloid journalists. At least they are making money off of their own person and not someone else's.
