Clay Aiken – Who Is The Star?


On Wednesday, September 16th, CNN hosted the 2nd GOP debate for President of the USA.  There were 15 Republicans who were on the stage…in two different groups.

Clay Aiken was there to cover the debate for Entertainment Tonight.

It was hard to know who was the star of the evening…it seemed that Clay Aiken got a lot of the attention.  He was supposed to interview others, but he was interviewed and reported on almost as much as the debaters.

Because of twitter, it was easy to watch Clay as he worked his way through the event.

There is so many tweets and pictures that I cannot even begin to post them all.  I will post many and keep the others for another day.

Remember, if you click on the picture, it will expand so you can see it better!!

Clay Aiken is walking around in the filing center as ‘Entertainment Tonight’ sets up its cameras. This is the weirdest election ever.

I’m sorry, Lindsey Graham, what were you saying? Clay Aiken just walked by. #GOPDebate

Does ‘Entertainment Tonight’ usually cover presidential debates? Because they have an enormous camera crew here in Simi Valley.

  1. What a night! Clay knows his politics and broadcast them with professionalism! He was great on Hardball with Chris Mathews, too. Pictures were all over Twitter and Facebook!

  2. OMG, what a great night for Clay! I do have ET set to record tonight. I love all the photos of Clay especially the first one. Thanks so much for this wonderful blog today. Also thanks for posting just the Hardball with just Clays segment. I can only tolerate Chris Matthews for so long. He NEVER anyone a chance to answer anything. I guess that is why I don't ever watch his show. Can't wait to see Clay on ET! Thanks again CANN!

  4. Love all the pics and tweets and the video you posted, always love to see Clay speak. Looking forward to see him on ET tonight. Thanks Martha….xo

  5. Back in 2003 when Clay tried out for AI 2, could he ever have imagined where he would be in 2015? Clay is right in the midst of all the political action and can handle whatever comes his way. Great photos and info thanks to CANN. I'm ready for ET tonight.
