Not all "American Idol" winners are created equal. They can't all be Kelly Clarkson.

Jog your memory with the 9 "AI" champs whose careers hit a bum note.

9. Scott McCreery -- Season 10



Rings a faint bell.



8. Ruben Studdard -- Season 2



Oh yeah -- that guy.



7. Kris Allen -- Season 8



He sings that one song, right?



6. David Cook -- Season 7



A lot of dudes won this thing, huh?



5. Taylor Hicks -- Season 5



Uh ... whose dad is this?



4. Lee DeWyze -- Season 9



Nope, no memory.



3. Candice Glover -- Season 12



Who's that now?



2. Caleb Johnson -- Season 13



Come again?



1. Brian Dunkleman -- Season 1 Co-Host



Ah, the ultimate "Idol" flop.
