Clay Aiken – Then and Now

This week on American Idol, the theme is Now & Then. That means tonight, the Idols will have to sing two songs: one current song and one song from the 1960s.

Well, Clay Aiken does not belong on American Idol this year, but I still can’t help but think of him as I think of this theme.  What do you think??

  1. I just have to say that Clay has matured very nicely….

    Thanks for the 2 clips of Build me up Buttercup. It's always nice to see Clay from the beginning to now…Yup..He's doing just fine.

  3. 🙂 He was spectacular then and he's even more spectacular now. Not only has he matured into a very handsome man, his voice has also matured into a spectacular instrument.


  4. All I know is….he was great on AI….but, now he is awesome and he has matured into the most handsome man. That voice is the best I have ever heard. Sure enjoyed all the pictures and the 2 video's though. Your blogs are always something to look forward to.

  5. Those then and now photos are amazing. The Ruben and Clay ones made me chuckle. Very cute. Clay was a phenomenal singer/showman then and continues to be one now, plus and then some. Great comparisons!

  6. I was only seven years old when I was watching Clay on Idol, my parents never understood why I started to like him at a young age but I did! Clay has matured very well and it is so great to see the then and now of Mr.Clay Aiken. Thanks for the post!! I love it 🙂
