Clay Aiken – “A True Love Of My Own”

American Idol, Season II was full of surprises.  It was an exciting time for the performers and the audience

The third elimination night was one of those surprising times.  Just as everyone had settled down to hear Disco Music, the theme for the night was changed.  “Country-Rock”……..what is Country-Rock?  Wearing a cowboy hat, Ryan Seacrest said: The theme for tonight is the intricate fusion between country and rock.

The guest judge for this night was Olivia Newton-John.

Singing Brian White’s hit, Someone Else’s Star, Clay Aiken was the highlight of the evening.  Randy, Paula, and Olivia gave Clay a short standing ovation.

Simon thought it was sweet, but just like his last performance.

Do you remember this song?

Someone Else’s Star

Alone again tonight
Without someone to love
The stars are shining bright
So one more wish goes up
Oh, I wish I may
And I wish with all my might
For the love I’m dreaming of
And missing in my life
You’d think that I could find
A true love of my own
It happens all the time
To people that I know
Their wishes all come true
So I’ve got to believe
There’s still someone out there who
Is meant for only me
I guess I must be wishing on
Someone else’s star
It seems like someone else keeps getting
What I’m wishing for
Why can’t I be as lucky
As those other people are
I guess I must be wishing
On someone else’s star


I hope you enjoy the video of this performance.

Clay sang this song on March 25, 2003!

  1. "Someone Else's Star was one of my top favorite performances by Clay! Sometimes Simon is right about the other contestants, but he is definitely wrong about this one! Thank you, CANN for sharing this special night!

  2. That seems so long ago. Yes, I did watch that night when Clay received 3 very good reviews and then there was Simon. I agreed with the 3 other judges.

  3. Thank you for the pictures and video. I like it. I can not believe it was 16 years ago. I do not watch AI .

  4. I was watching back then, I loved the song & still do. Simon Cowell just proved that he’s either deaf or plain stupid. Thanks for the video.
