Now, thanks to the fame he earned on American Idol, the singer has a great, new look as well.
On the show, Yamin mentioned that diabetes had rotted his teeth and he was left with a crooked smile as he belted out tunes that most fans gobbled up (just not enough to have him defeat eventual winner, Taylor Hicks).
"The next thing you know I got offers from dentists all over the country to fix my teeth for free," Elliott said.
And so it's been done. Yamin, who has just landed a new publishing deal with Sony, has many things to smile about in life. Including shiny new, beautiful teeth!
