With the beginning of Season 13 of American Idol, the buzz is beginning. As in previous years, the entertainment magazines and sites start to talk about some of the successful former Idols. This year, there has been some mentions of Clay Aiken.
Jake’s Take – American Idol’s Best Male Vocalists
Before Susan Boyle, Terry Fator and Jonathan Antoine stopped doubters in their tracks, a then-gawky Clay Aiken blew the world away with his first audition. Later, his astonishing vocals on “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “Solitaire” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” helped him gain a place in the Idol pantheon and over 5,000,000 albums!
The top picture on the page is of Clay Aiken. The caption of the picture says:
Clay Aiken’s interpretation of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” not only remains the best “Idol” finale performance of all-time..but also he is one of the best male vocalists to have hit the stage.
This is an interesting list of singers. I hope you will visit Jake’s Take
The Washington Post – American Idol’ favorites: Where are they now?
The 2003 “Idol” runner-up has become a recording star, a Broadway performer (“Monty Python’s Spamalot”), a runner-up on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice’’ and, perhaps, as reported in January, a Democratic candidate for Congress in North Carolina.
It’s a short mention but still good!

Although this is not about American Idol, it still is a Clay mention. I didn’t know that Clay was on the Board of Directors of this organization.
