Justin Guarini Is a First Place Loser

7/27/2008 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Judging by the look on Justin Guarini's face, it's frightening how big of a difference it makes to come in second place.

While Kelly Clarkson has played the big people stage at Universal's Gibson Amphitheater -- "American Idol" runner-up Justin Guarini is forced to rock out a free gig on the City Walk.

Too bad your *cough*reporters*cough didn't stay and enjoy the concert. As the pictures and vids on several Justin fan sites show, he rocked the crowd and they loved him.

What's with all the Justin snark of late? Jealous his TVGuide gigs get better ratings than your syndicated show?

LOL, seems the only one desperate here is TMZ. Reaching, much?

BTW, Justin is about to go over to Afghanistan on a USO Tour. Let's see you assclowns tear that down.

Maybe because he isn't a SOCKS FAN like me, he would be something. Besides Kelly is much more talented than he is although he is much more hot looking. EEEEEEWWWWWW GGGGGGAAAAAA he is almost as hot as Manny Ramirez and God those locks. Did I say GO SOCKS yet???? well anyway this guy has no singing voice and bad stage presence as compared to Kelly. Well he isn't no Manny Ramirez but I adore HIM

GO SOCKS

Justin is a really good looking guy, looks like you made an effort to find the worst possible picture. It's been six or seven years since the first season of American Idol and it looks like he is still working and that's a good thing when there is literally an Idol on every street corner. I remember the tour for the first season of Idol Justin was the MC of the show and he blew everyone else out of the water with his voice and performance skills, even Kelly and I say this as a fan of Kelly. Kelly has had many more opportunities as the first Idol, not that she didn't deserve to win, but I think they are both very talented and that they have gotten over the competition thing a long time ago, why can't the fans.

At least he is out doing what he wants to do when he grows up. It seems to me that a lot of the TMZ writers are bitter nobodies that desperately wanna be. Just because YOUR career failed and you ended up being a TMZ coffe bitch that got promoted to writing, you shouldn't be so snarky to those out there trying to actually do something.

Why don't you write about the Hogans or the Kard-whatever sisters or the Hiltons. They contribute SO much to the world.

Yes TMZ does look a little desperate... It's too bad that Justin was amazing at the concert, and even made some new fans! You should probably get your facts straight before posting things like this (oh wait I forgot it's TMZ..)

These people that continue to s**t on Justin's singing have not heard him in 5+ years let alone live so your opinions mean jack!!

As for TMZ nice way to get the most unflattering pic and the article just proves how predictable and boring you've become in your old age. GO AWAY!

Justin is the shizzzz    

Are you kidding me? Justin ROCKED the Citywalk last night! He was awesome. The crowd was HUGE and it just kept getting bigger and bigger the longer he performed.

There's a lot of people out there who love Justin, and recognize he got shafted by the ptb at AI and RCA (who of course are the TMZ people wish they were in bed with every night (and I mean that literally! haha). So TMZ just totes the same ol', same ol' party line, even if its an OLD party line. But, no worries, everyone knows its bs. Hey, I hate to tell you guys this, but about a year ago, it was discovered Ms. Clarkson can't even sell out a 5000 seat venue anymore, and she hasn't been heard from since. Maybe you missed that piece of news. Try to keep up, TMZ. (rolls eyes).

Meanwhile, Justin is out there making music, doing TV, making Indie movies (check out Fast Girl on DVD!), and doing innovative things too, like his BlogTalkRadio.com show every Tuesday night on the net. Someday when the AI hype dies down, and TMZ get out of bed with the ptb, they' might even figure out that he's just as wonderful as he's ALWAYS been, and super gracious guy to boot. Someone TMZ could learn something from. Jes sayin'

guy. (Guarini). I can smell the jealousy.

Stop the PC!!!    

Hey Justin is the shizzzz......You must actually be Justin because I know you can not afford a PR person.

Nice try, maybe some losers out there might even buy your self promoting hype and send you a nickle.

Please just go away!!!!
