Always and Forever: Ten Years with Clay Aiken

Ten years have passed, but I remember it well.

I was just a few seconds away from changing the channel.

I love music, appreciate good singers, have loved my years of taking part in film and theatre and writing, and I support the arts of all kinds, so I didn’t mind turning on the second season of “American Idol” to see if anyone showed potential. But with the emphasis on crash-and-burn auditions, “comic” moments that were none-too-funny and snide comments masquerading as wit, I’d had about enough.

And then the skinny guy with the crazy hair walked out….

Check it out for wonderful writing and lots of pictures!!

Most people will say that Clay Aiken has moved on from his season on American Idol. For the last ten years, he has been busy recording albums, touring the country, starring on Broadway, performing on many TV show, including a full season of Celebrity Apprentice,  and participating in many charitable organizations. Yes, he is much more than an American Idol contestant.

But……..it all started on American Idol so lets have some fun. Magicalmusic made a montage of American Idol pictures. Can you match the picture with the song?? WAIT!! NO CHEATING!! Can you do it without looking at your Clack?? Some days, you just have to have fun, so lets us know if you were successful or if you had trouble. It will be fun to see how we all do. After all, its been 10 years!!
