Clay Aiken – Two Talented Musicians

American Idol Season 2 –

It was the most watched and closest season in the history of American Idol.

The second season premiered on January 21, 2003, and continued until May 21, 2003.

 Around 70,000 attended the auditions in season 2 and 234 were selected to proceed on to the Hollywood round.

But…it’s been 16 years since Season 2 of AI and to be perfectly honest, I don’t think about anyone in that season except Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard.

Fortunately, there are some great fans who have put together some wonderful videos of Clay and Ruben.  Today, we are featuring a beautiful video by the talented SueReu.  It isn’t new, but it is a great showcase of Clay and Ruben!

  1. They were and are so proud of each other and still are – this makes me so proud of both Clay and Ruben even now. Yes, tears again, for all of the joy and happiness they have brought to me (us) all of these years!

  2. Is today the 16th year anniversary of Clay being on AI? I was trying to remember but theres been no mention of it…..?
