Season 2 Winner: Ruben Studdard
25-year-old Ruben Studdard snagged Idol glory in 2003, defeating Clay Aiken by a small margin to take home the prestigious title. The Birmingham, Alabama native went on to receive a Grammy Award nomination later that year for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for Superstar, and has since released four studio albums, including his most recent record, 2009's Love Is.
