Clay Aiken was on TV last night!
He was the best part of Wednesday’s episode of American Idol!
American Idol was showing some of the auditions in Philadelphia last night. Clay Aiken was there to help with the auditions.
One of the first things on the show last night was some great shots of Clay surrounded by excited contestants all hoping that they would make it to the next level.
Clay introduced himself to one of the younger singers and sat down next to him. He had 4 questions to ask the young man:
- 1st Wildcard to make it to the finals
- Idol who wore a tight red leather jacket and sang Grease
- Starred in Spamalot on Broadway
- First Idol to run for political office
While Clay asked the question, American Idol showed a Split/screen picture that matched the answer. Of course, the answer was “Clay Aiken” but the young guy didn’t get any correct answers.
There were some fun tweets that showed up during the show:
Meeting Clay Aiken was a pretty cool experience @AmericanIdol
Entertainment Weekly wrote the following about Clay on the show:
American Idol recap: ‘Philadelphia Auditions’
If you’re not going to audition in a bedazzled thong and headdress, then why bother?
Honestly, American Idol, stop playing with my heart. This is episode three, and we have yet another specialized opening. Does anything stay the same? When this show started, kids, iPods were bigger than a shoebox. Ryan Seacrest was 4-years-old. And we had the decency to choose one opening and run with it. But shows change, and people always leave. Everyone except for Idol favorite and politician, Clay Aiken, that is. Clay is joining the judges in Philadelphia for judging, and he’s just as quirky and lovable as he was in season 2. I’m still sorry (2004) that you lost, champ. But we’re in Philly and it’s time to start…
