On 12/10/03 Clay Aiken appeared on the 2003 Billboard Awards Show. For an artist who was new the professional music scene, Clay played a prominent role in the evening gala. Ryan Seacrest was the host of the evening and he had Clay help with the opening of the show.
The Billboard Music Awards are held annually and are always in December. Much like the American Music Awards, the winners are chosen on popularity. The awards are given out based on the Billboard year-end music charts. Some of the categories are top selling album, top selling artist and top selling single.
Clay was introduced by the irritating Kathy Griffin and performed Invisible to an enthusiastic audience. After the performance, Clay was presented with the award for the best selling single of the year.
Clay was accompanied to the BMA Award show by his mother, Faye. They both looked wonderful as they walked down the Red Carpet in Las Vegas and Clay was stopped many times by the press.
It was wonderful to see Clay win the Billboard Award and his performance was amazing. However, there were some “interesting” things that went on that night. Pathetic Kathy Griffin thought she was funny in her introduction of Clay, but most of Clay’s fans didn’t find it amusing. Add to the list of negatives was the vulgar jokes by Dave Grohl and Triumph the Wonder Dog. They really were “Crass” as they joked about Clay.
The following video shows Clay’s introduction, his performance of Invisible and his acceptance speech…no Dogs allowed!!
