Interesting Facts

1Justin is the voice and CGI mini-character for "Lil Sweet", the animated logo for Diet Dr. Pepper. His unique clothes are blinging; he is a fair-skinned African American; he sings in a wicked falsetto; and his hair is purple, all to remind the viewer of 'Prince (I)'. After the death of Prince in April 2016, many accused Dr. Pepper of being disrespectful. However, Dr. Pepper claimed it was not imitating Prince. First of all, they argued, His Purple Majesty would never dye his hair purple and his facial hair and hair-do were over the top. Nonetheless, after Prince died, the commercial now states, like in a video, "Justin Guarini as Lil Sweet".

1Smooth, soulful voice and big, curly hair [cut in 2010 for auditions]


1I have a love-hate relationship with the media. I love 'em, and they love to hate me.
2American Idol did wonders for my career, but it was also extremely damaging for my life.
3Success is like a high-rise building I'm on the first floor. There are a lot of people in the basement or the parking lot but I was lucky enough to have made it to the first floor and I'm looking to make it to the penthouse.
4Let them laugh at you, their joy will turn to ashes in their mouths. Let them talk, their scorn will be the ink with which you write.
5I'd be completely lost without music, and bursting with emotions that I couldn't comprehend or control.
6I've traveled all over the world but I found the woman I love right in my own backyard
7I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully it's salvation, not a train coming at me.
8A child's day is too often filled with mind-numbing facts solely designed for the next high-stake test, and not life application. An arts education is imperative to our children's growth and well being, and is proved to have a direct and positive effect on all other forms of reasoning.
9[on his ethnic background] Half-Italian, half-African-American, and English and Irish thrown in there somewhere.
