Since 2005, Clay Aiken and Valentine’s Day have never quite been the same. Most fans of Clay Aiken will always remember the excitement that filled our televisions and hearts when we watched Clay and Jimmy Kimmel celebrate Valentine’s Day together that February.
Surrounded by the love of his fans, Clay took the stage with a huge smile on his face. Both Jimmy and Clay seemed amazed and somewhat awed by the amount of gifts that were brought by Clay’s fans. There were red and white balloons, flowers, cute stuffed animals and lots and lots of pizza. Jimmy commented that there were even more gifts backstage.
There was no doubt that Clay Aiken and Jimmy Kimmel were friends. They chatted together and included the audience in their fun. Their friendly banter made February 14th a day to remember.
Jimmy and Clay spent their second Valentine’s Day together in 2007. As in the previous celebration, Clay’s fans enthusiastically greeted Clay and had a good laugh when Clay gifted Jimmy with a shirt with his picture on it.
The highlight of the evening was a wonderful Valentine song that Clay performed while picking through candy hearts. It was sweet, funny, and original, all at the same time.
Thank you to Clay Aiken and Jimmy Kimmel for making Valentine’s Day special and memorable.
Below is a great clip that shows the “candy hearts song” and the excitement of Clay, Jimmy, and Valentines day!!
Since today is Valentine’s Day, we really need to hear one of Clay’s beautiful love songs!
I chose one of my favorite songs today. It has the most plays on my I-Tunes list and it always seems to make me feel good. I love the beautiful melody, the lush arrangement and the lyrics convey such love that you can’t help but feel good. From Clay’s album, On My Way Here, the song is titled Something About Us.
The talented SueReu put together a wonderful Valentine’s Day video with Clay singing Something About Us.
It is so perfect for this special day!
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day All! Of course, Clay is my Valentine, not only today but all year long!
Love the videos and "Something About Us" is my favorite romantic song by OMC!
I remember Clay being on the Kimmel show. Funny. I love the words and music of this song. It is one of my favorite songs. Clay has a voice that goes with this song. Happy Valentines Day to everyone includes Clay.I play this song a lot. Thank you again.
Thanks for the wonderful memory
My favorite song, too! <3
One of the most beautiful songs that Clay sings. I always think of the Obamas when I hear it because someone had suggested it should be played at one of the celebration parties when Barack was elected president. Don't know if that actually happened. I often wonder if Clay & Jimmy are still in touch. They both had baby boys that had a serious health problem just after birth, but are fine now.
I also wanto wish everyone a very happy valentinesday and especialey clay hes also my valentine and the video about sou is indeed perfict thanks
