  1. Thanks for bringing all these articles over from yesterday Musicfan….

    They were all positive and really a thrill to see so much in one day…. I'm sure there will be more things popping up as the tour gets closer…. Was thrilled to get the message from Clay's Team regarding getting excited about the tour…..YES!!!!!!!

    Hugs, Judy

  2. Thanks for the info…..I love that Clay won the Broadway poll. I hope that we get more news today!!

    I hope we get lots more mentions today…….its great to see eveything in one place and organized!!

  3. I am loving all the good mentions of Clay. Keep em comin! Glad to see that BOTW is considered the best AI Performance ever. Yes, I am getting very excited about the tour. Only 23 more days till my Orlando Concert. EEEEEEEEEEEE!

  4. Not surprising. That's why Clay really DID win AI2–especially that we now know he 'received 80 percent of the votes every single week he was on.'!!! (Per TWO producers of AI)

  5. I completely agree that Clay's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" was the best Idol performance ever. I decided to watch some of my favorite performances from other former contests on Youtube last night. While I heard a lot of great talent, none of them can touch Clay's amazing vocals.
