Former American Idol winner Ruben Studdard is about to go through a serious change while on television — and we DON'T mean winning another singing competition! Instead, the competition is the fall edition of The Biggest Loser, because he'll be a part of the show!
When we first heard about this, we figured he'd somehow just be involved! We were super pleased to hear he'll be competing!
The Vote Off Song has a new voice in Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery.
As each Idol contestant says goodbye from the final 13, Scotty's rendition of Garth Brooks' Please Remember Me will try to soothe them as they leave.

Yup, this has happened before.
Back in 2008, Ruben Studdard had a property lien filed against him after he failed to pay $200,000 in taxes.
And now the former American Idol champ and his estranged wife Zuri have found themselves in hot water again as they have had another tax lien strike against them in the amount of $180,216.73 for the year 2009.
The two filed for divorce back in November so looks like things about to get even more messier for them.
Seems like Ruben is getting to be known more for his money problems than his music. Sad.

Nice to see Ruben bouncing back after his recent divorce.
Check out the behind-the-scenes look (above) at Ruben Studdard's upcoming music video for June 28th (I'm Single).
Keep up the good work, Ruben! We have a feeling things'll be all uphill from here for ya!
What do U think? Are U excited for new music from the American Idol season 2 winner???
We haven't talked about this guy in a while and we wish we were bringing up his name with better news, but unfortunately we're not.
Season 2 American Idol winner Ruben Studdard and his wife are divorcing.
He filed the papers in Alabama this week and cited "irreconcilable differences."
Studdard married Surata Zuri McCants in 2008, but his rep told sources that they "have gone their separate ways.”
It sounds like it was for the best and with no kids, it shouldn't be too messy of a divorce.
Sorry to hear that things didn't work out, guys! We wish them both the best of luck as they move on with their lives.
It's the American Idol dream!
Not only has Scotty McCreery's debut album Clear As Day debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, but he's also the first country act to have their freshman album debut at the top of the chart.
AND, at 18 years old, he's the youngest man to open at the top of the chart with his first release.
What's even crazier is that since Kelly Clarkson's debut in May 2003 and Ruben Studdard's debut in December 2003, he's the first AI winner to hit Number 1.
Good for him! That's huuuge!
In other news, what's Taylor Hicks up to these days??
