Clay Aiken – Here, There, And Everywhere!

There are some days when the name, Clay Aiken, is everywhere.  None of the mentions are huge, but it just seems like his name is everywhere.

Today, I will try to catch many of these fun mentions.  Even if you have seen them before, its fun to see the public recognition for Clay.

On January 18th,  xfinity posted a slideshow titled Idol: Then & Now.  It’s nice that they used two great pictures of Clay.  Under the pictures they say:

Season 2 – Clay Aiken

Aiken is the most successful second-place “Idol” to date. He can next be seen competing in the upcoming season of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” (Photo:
Be sure and check out the slideshow.  There are a total of 48 pictures of many of the former Idols.  Visit xfinity
It was fun to see that Clay made the list of the 7 Top tweets of the Day by Celebrities.  Who knew there was a site that posts this stuff?  Whatever, its fun that the site thought that the following tweet was fun.
On January 19th, it was announced that Clay’s episode of Drop Dead Diva  has been nominated for a GLAAD award.  According to GLAAD:
The honorees are recognized for the outstanding images of the LGBT community they put out to the public and you’ll see some familiar faces on the list.
Later in the day, GLAAD sent the following tweet:  @iamwandasykes @lancebass @clayaiken Congrats on your #glaadawards nomination! #DropDeadDiva     I hope that Clay will be able to attend the awards ceremony.
The Orange County Register, a large newspaper in Southern California sponsors a pop culture and TV blog titled Pedro and the Watcher.  On January 18th, they published their list of the top 30 former American Idols.  They put the list in a count-down slide show that was very nice.  They rated Clay as #5.  You can see the site HERE
One more Top Idol list was published by Mindful of Music.  There was a twist to their list.  They chose one person for each season.  Clay was chosen for Season Two.  There comments about Clay were nice.  They said:
Season 2 – Clay Aiken
Clay Aiken was the smooth crooner on his season, who in the end competed against Ruben Studdard in Idol’s first of three guy vs. guy finales. Though Studdard took the crown in the end, it was no doubt Clay would go far, releasing a total of seven albums including a Christmas alum and a Best of Clay Aiken compilation CD. Now, Clay and his Claymates are still going strong, making him the best and most popular contestant of Season 2.

On January 19th, Clay attended a standup performance by Adam Carola, one of the contestants on Celebrity Apprentice.  Twitter was in full use by Clay, Adam and even some of the audience members.
Clay tweeted the following message and picture:

He’s a great guy. Fingers crossed that I escape unscathed!
Jason Dixon, the Program Director of  Raleigh 99.9 tweeted the following:

When the show was over, Clay tweeted one more time:

Kick ass job tonight @adamcarolla. Glad you liked our NC bathrooms!
It was really fun when Adam posted a “keek”  (a video).  It’s very short, but worth it to see the fun.

  1. Yep, our man is everywhere it seems lately. Can't get enough of Clay Aiken can one! I can't imagine what it's going to be like when CApp starts! Oh my! Thanks again musicfan!

  2. Love that short video with Adam C.. It's great that Clay is enjoying interacting with his fellow CApp castmates. He is certainly playing in a whole new ballgame than the one that was going on a couple of years ago. Wonderful to see him so happy and finally being accepted by a much more eclectic group of people. Clay appears to be on his way again and it's a really good thing.

  3. Clay certainly has been getting a lot of publicity lately. There were a lot of tweets about him last night. I just love that Video with Adam. Clay is just so adorable…and love that laugh. I think he is on his way again…and, I can't wait for CA to start.

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys over here keep us up to date on Clay. I have no idea where to even begin to look for info and you always have it!

  5. It is wonderful seeing Clay everywhere. 2012 is definitely a Clay Aiken year. Thanks CANN for keeping all the news up to date and interesting.

  6. The Clay and Adam video is soo cute. They seem to get along well. I hope Clay gets along with the other guys from Celebrity Apprentice too. I have a feeling, however, that 1 or 2 might not be so easy to get along with.
