Clay Aiken – Reliving Some Fun

Nothing will work unless you do ~ Maya Angelou


As we are waiting for some news from Clay Aiken, it is fun to go back and relive some of the exciting things that Clay has done in the last 16 years.

Do you remember:

  1. Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Clay Aiken
  2. The blue sequined vest from high school
  3. “A Panty or two” and “Depends”
  4. Skipping to the front of the line at the DMV
  5. The original DMV picture
  6. Raleigh = Mayberry

If you remember these fun stories, you probably remember Clay Aiken visiting Jay Leno on January 21, 2004. Dressed in a light beige suit with a brown shirt, Clay’s interview with Leno was fun, relaxed and full of lots of laughs.

Clay closed the show with a beautiful rendition of “The Way.” The camera caught his beautiful smile at the end of the performance.

I have always enjoyed watching Clay on the Tonight Show. It’s been fun observing Clay as he became more relaxed at each visit. I always had to laugh when the script-writer would come up with the same exact words each time Clay was introduced on the show!

The following videos show the interview and Clay’s performance of “The Way.”

Now, the Late Show is hosted by Stephen Colbert.

 I hope Clay will visit his show sometime again…soon!
