In the past week, we have had two exciting appearances by Clay Aiken.  On Thursday, December 15th, Clay and Ruben Studdard were guests on The View.  They sang together and talked about what they have been doing since their “Wins” on American Idol.  It was fun to see them singing together on TV.

And…it seems the appearance was fun for the press too.  So many news and entertainment sites picked up the story.

Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard had an “American Idol” reunion on Thursday’s “The View” for a special Christmas performance. Watch below!

Studdard, of course, won season two of “Idol” back in 2003, with Aiken coming in second place. But there wasn’t much rivalry between them. In fact, the two have remained friends over the last 13 years.

Still, they shockingly haven’t performed together on TV since their days on the FOX competition. Now on the ABC talk show, Aiken and Studdard reunited to perform “This Christmas.” Aiken started the track out in classic fashion, before the “Velvet Teddy Bear” (a.k.a Studdard) came out to add some R&B flair…

  1. I was heart-broken, because I missed this concert. But thanks to all my fellow claymates, I will be forever thankful for sharing various videos and pictures! And thank you CANN for posting these videos and articles on OMC! Enjoy you every day!

  2. Can’t wait to view what YouTube has posted from the Arizona Christmas Concert. Waiting for the new posts after the concert was very hard for me wondering if all went well and what the press would say after all these years. Seems like they just made a basic report without expressing opinions. Hope good things go out about the concert. ❤️ UNCONDITIONAL love for you clay!
