Then: Georgia native EJay Day wasn’t supposed to make the Top 10 for Season 1 at first, but judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson allowed him back into the competition following contestant Delano Cagnolati’s exit due to fraudulent age claims. During his short run on the show (he was eliminated in the first Top 10 round), Day showed off his sweet, smooth voice with songs like ‘My Girl‘ and ‘I’ll Be‘ by Edwin McCain.
Now: Day went on to entertain after his ‘Idol’ stint, showing off his vocals on the 2002 ‘American Idol’ tour and as an entertainer on Royal Caribbean cruise lines. He was also recruited by boxer Muhammed Ali to sing at several events, and performed at the Tournament of Roses in 2003. Nowadays, you can keep up with him on Facebook, where he’s seen living it up with Playboy model friends and showing off some modeling shots of his own. He looks like he hasn’t aged a bit!
