I have always tried to be up front with all of you about my American Idol experience. I started watching at the beginning of Season 2. My husband and I enjoyed watching together and tried to make sure nothing got in the way of watching. We both loved Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken. But, it didn’t take long before Clay became our favorite.
We watched for a few more years, but lost interest when it was obvious from the beginning which contestants the show wanted to win.
So…being the last year of American Idol, I was ready to watch again. Because of the promotion for the show, I learned that Clay Aiken was helping out in Philadelphia and was going to be a part of the last season.
Well…I wish I could tell you that Clay will be on tonight. I don’t know what to think. The latest promotion video was taken down on Monday and then returned without Clay. What? It seems a bit odd to remove him from the show. After all, Clay is one of the most popular Idol Alums. Of course, maybe Clay will be there and we can see him judging and encouraging the young singers. We will just have to wait and see.
The following Promotion video is still up and has lots of Clay at the auditions. I am feeling better!
Do you remember seeing Clay when he auditioned for American Idol. It’s fun to look back.
So…lets hope we see Clay on our TV tonight!
I am sure he was wonderful as a judge!
