Justin Guarini
Former "American Idol" star Justin Guarini is making a comeback...sort of. The singer appears in a new commercial for Diet Dr. Pepper, but he looks decidedly different.

Guarini, 36, plays "Lil' Sweet" in the ad, which shows a woman in an office seeking a low-calorie beverage. Guarini, miniturized, slides from the hallway into the kitchen on his knees sporting red hair and a very shiny outfit.

When the woman asks if he works there, he replies, "No, Lil' Sweet is self-employed." Then he slides out of the room.
