Often compared to Justin Timberlake in terms of looks and style, Richardson was a favorite of the teen set as a finalist on the sixth season of American Idol. But even his avid, mostly female fans couldn't turn him into a winner and he became the eighth constestant voted off. In addition to his sexy charm and smooth vocals, he is a well-rounded musician who plays guitar, drums and piano and also writes his own tunes.
