13 of 31: Chris Daughtry was eliminated during the top four of the fifth season of 'American Idol,' however the singer went on to be one of the most successful alumni to-date.

Following elimination from the show, Daughtry went onto form his own band, also known as Daughtry, releasing a self-titled debut album in 2006. The record debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart and spawned the hit singles 'It's Not Over,' 'Home,' 'Over You,' Feels Like Tonight' and 'What About Now.' The group went onto release two more albums, including 'Leave This Town' in 2009 and 'Break the Spell' in 2011.

In 2012, Daughtry was sued by three of his former bandmates who claimed the singer defrauded them out of proceeds from four songs. Daughtry lives in North Carolina with his wife, Deanna Daughtry. The couple has four children together.
