Ju'Not Joyner of Bowie, Md., auditioned for "American Idol" Season 8 in East Rutherford, N.J. Joyner may look familiar -- he was on Season 7 and made it through the first round but was soon cut. He's putting the past behind him -- he's back for more and is definitely hoping to make it further this time.
The 26-year-old father and self-described "practical jokester" has been singing all his life and has a MySpace page where fans can keep up with him between "Idol" episodes. You can also check out Ju'Not Joyner on YouTube.
