Clay Aiken – The Professional Music Scene

On Sunday, May 22, 2016, The Annual Billboard Awards were held at the T-Mobile  Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show was televised on ABC and the hosts were Ludacris and Ciara.

That reminded me that Clay Aiken appeared on the 2003 Billboard Awards Show. For an artist who was new to the professional music scene, Clay played a prominent role in the evening gala. Ryan Seacrest was the host of the evening and he had Clay help with the opening of the show.


The Billboard Music Awards were first presented in 1989. For many years they were held annually and always in December. In 2007, the awards were cancelled and did not return until May 22, 2011. Much like the American Music Awards, the winners are chosen on popularity. The awards are given out based on the Billboard year-end music charts. Some of the categories are top selling album, top selling artist and top selling single.


Clay was introduced and then performed Invisible to an enthusiastic audience. After the performance, Clay was presented with the award for the best selling single of the year.

Clay was accompanied to the BMA Award show by his mother, Faye. They both looked wonderful as they walked down the Red Carpet in Las Vegas and Clay was stopped many times by the press.

It was wonderful to see Clay win the Billboard Award and his performance was amazing. However, there were some very negative and vulgar jokes by Dave Grohl and Triumph the Wonder Dog that night. They really were “Crass” as they joked about Clay.


The following video shows Clay’s introduction, his performance of Invisible and his acceptance speech…no Dogs allowed!!

  1. I've seen this before and always cringe when I hear the off color introduction by Kathy Griffin before Clay performs. I give him props for coming out and being the class act he is after such an insult.

  2. Kathy Griffin acted like an idiot. And those that made off-color remarks are just ignorant; especially with his mother there! He was so young!!!
