Vampires live forever. If only the same could be said for Justin Guarini’s career. The season 1 American Idol finalist hopes to claw his way back to cultural significance with a campaign to get his new single, ”I Can’t Live,” onto the upcoming Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack. ”Some people have put me in the [Idol] box,” he tells EW. ”But I’m more than you think I am.” (An online version of his ballad has pulled in more than 240,000 views.) Will it work? Shockingly, the movie’s studio and music supervisor did not respond to our requests for comment.
