Tonight marks the eighth season premiere of the very popular talent show, American Idol. Of course, the publicity machine is in full throttle. Jarrett Wieselman from the New York Post, published an article today titled The 10 Best Idol Performances.
Jarett has never been a fan of Clay Aiken, but in this list, he rated Clay’s Wildcard performance as the 4th best performance of the seven years. Clay sang Open Arms, a song made popular by the group Journey.
Claiming Clay to be an unlikely heart throb, Wieselman says that the public embraced Clay and kept voting and voting for him.
Clay has gone on to be the most popular runner-up and has moved his successful career away from his American Idol experience.
Are you going to watch American Idol tonight?? Personally, I have also moved on and I will not be watching
