Clay Aiken Has A Lot To Say!

It is always a good day when there is lots of news about Clay Aiken !

Tuesday started with a fun tweet from Good Morning America.

Who is your favorite American Idol contestant of all-time? What is your favorite American Idol moment? Tweet us!

Well, I didn’t have any trouble retweeting and  answering this tweet.   I hope you did too…it’s not too late!


A few minutes later, Clay tweeted the following:

Clay Aiken‏Verified account @clayaiken
.@paulapoundstone is going to teach me how to find happiness! #SalonTalk live at noon on – What makes you happy?

Sounds like fun…..but, for some reason, I could not find Clay talking to Paula anywhere!  I hope it is saved for another day!

BUT…the day was just beginning!!

It seems Clay had another interview on Salon and it is fabulous!

Besides the wonderful video interview, Clay was also mentioned in a written article about American Idol.

Clay Aiken tells us what ABC’s “American Idol” reboot has to get right

With the show on a new network, the alum opened up about its future and what made it special in the first place

We didn’t ask for it, but we got it anyway. A little over a year after Fox aired the alleged series finale of “American Idol,” ABC announced it will resurrect the unscripted competition series as part of its 2017-2018 season lineup.

ABC made the announcement on Tuesday morning, following weeks of industry murmurs that networks were bidding for the show’s return. According to reports, both NBC and Fox were part of the bidding process, but ultimately ABC seized the prize.

The news also comes a week after former “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest joined ABC as a co-host and co-executive producer of the network’s top-rated morning talk show “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

Coincidentally, Salon happened to have “Idol” season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken in our New York studio and the series alum offered his thoughts on the revival to Salon editor Gabriel Bell in this exclusive video.

“To have that happen, what, a week after Ryan also signed up with ABC, was interesting,” Aiken said, “and also, strange, because he signed up with ABC to do . . . something that’s going to probably keep him from being able to do ‘Idol,’ right?”….

….And this also speaks to one of the challenges that ABC must overcome in reviving “Idol.” The series had a Midas touch for those who rose high enough in its ranks during the first few seasons. “Idol” produced two major stars, along with McPhee and Aiken, in winners Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, and a number of superstars from its pool of runners-up, including Grammy and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert.

I think that Salon was glad to interview Clay.  They have sent out lots of tweets about the interview and seem to hope that many people see the video…and each tweet is being sent to American Idol too.

Melanie McFarland of Salon posted the following tweet!

Salon also posted about the interview with Clay on their Instagram account.

  1. My phone was tweeting all day yesterday! Thank you CANN for the great pictures of OMC! I hope American Idol listens!

  2. It was a great interview. American Idol would do well to have Clay as a judge. He's fair, compassionate, but will give the truth. Can you imagine the buzz it would create if he was chosen? The pictures from yesterday are absolutely breathtaking!!!! Thanks Musicfan.

  3. Clay just pops up everywhere! He always has intelligent comments and sure looks good in that last photo above.

  4. clay would indeed be a great judge or a host on the new idol can you emagine the excitement and buzz if he was chosen so far im hearing about kelly and adam

  5. Clay would be the best host an Idol show could hope for. This was a great day for Clay videos. I couldn’t believe it. I love seeing Clay as a regular person as compared to a political person. I hope my vote gets counted. Thanks so much for all the info and connections. A great day for OMC!!! ❤️ UNCONDITIONAL love for you Clay. Good luck.
