American Idol winner Ruben Studdard is starring in the "Always & Forever: An Evening of Luther Vandross" tour this spring, and there's an Orlando stop in the mix.

The Grammy-nominated artist will perform the Vandross hits on May 10 at Hard Rock Live. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. and you can find them here.

Studdard won American Idol back in 2003 and in the same year, he was nominated for a Grammy Award for best male R&B vocal performance for his song "Superstar." Ironically, the Grammy Award was given to Luther Vandross for his performance of "Dance With My Father."
