LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Kelly Clarkson, Justin Guarini and Tamyra Gray aren't the only ones who launched their careers on "American Idol."
Kristin Holt, a semi-finalist on the show last summer, will be back for "Idol's" second edition in January. Instead of singing, however, she'll join Ryan Seacrest as a co-host of the show. She replaces Brian Dunkleman.
Holt, a Texas native and onetime Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, returned home after not making the final 10. After hearing that the show was still without a co-host for Seacrest, she says she decided to give the producers a call.
