Clay Aiken – Tweets To Like and Retweet!


On Monday morning,  Clay Aiken had some things to say and he used Twitter to share his thoughts!  His tweets were interesting and , as usual, he had lots of people who agreed with him and some that didn’t.

Clay posted:

So when I was on I slightly flubbed some lyrics. Nowhere near this noticable.. and even Paula gave me hell. This girl gets a therapy session?! 🙄 Really? Seriously??! What happened to the show we loved?

He attached the following video Twittervideo 

About an hour later he posted another tweet:

Remember back 2002 – 2003 when was a high stakes singing competition & we were all waiting and nervously anticipating what had to say? Why’s it now totally without critique and essentially just a Vacation Bible School talent show? 🙄

Of course, some people didn’t understand that Clay was talking about the lack of judging and was not putting any Idol out.  But….look at the comments and they were about half for Clay and half not agreeing with Clay!!  So…everything is about the way it always is!!

If you missed the tweets by Clay, be sure and like and retweet him.  That’s a good way to let him know you enjoy his tweets!


Since we are talking about American Idol, I thought it would be fun to remember one of Clays performances on American Idol!

 To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you!


In 1967, the Gibb Brothers released their first album in England.  Named Bee Gee’s 1st, the album had 14 tracks.  One of the most popular tracks on the album was #10.  It was called To Love Somebody and it became a huge hit for the group.

In May of 2003, Clay Aiken sang To Love Somebody as part of the Top 4 Show of season 2 of American Idol.  All the American Idol judges, including Robin Gibb who was a guest judge for the evening, immediately praised Clay’s fantastic performance of the song. The live audience gave Clay a standing ovation for his performance.

That evening was one of the few times that I agreed with Simon Cowell’s comments about Clay’s performances.  That night, Cowell said:

Clay, I think this is the third Pop Idol or American Idol I’ve done if you include the English one, and that’s probably one of the best performances I’ve ever heard throughout the competition.

I would love to hear Clay sing this song again.  I think it really fits his vocal range and it certainly brought out strong emotions in Clay’s performance.

Were you watching Clay on American Idol when he sang this song? 

Is it one of your favorites too?

  1. I have to say that I am on Clay’s side of the fence (or Bible Camp Talent Show) – but not being a tweeter I can’t help him out there. I have only watched a few

    bits and pieces of the new show and am not at all impressed with the talent or the judges. JMO but life is in a complete opposite direction of the days when Clay was on Idol in so many areas.

    Absolutely love “To Love Somebody” by Clay – a favorite for sure! Thank you so much for sharing it.

  2. I read all of Clay's tweets., He has a right to his opinion, especially towards American Idol. The judges are too easy on these contestants, I would want the cold harsh facts: am I good
    or not. Thank you, CANN for the video to brighten up day!

  3. Yes, I was watching and loved Clay's performance. As to the current AI…I'm not watching. I miss the good old days when it was about finding an unlikely singer with a great voice to vote for. Just watching the judges antics this time around leave me cold.

  4. I was also watching and iloved the performance of that old old beegees song to love some body robin gibb was right on the money when he said that's the way the song should have been sung and he was right I agree with clay
