Clay Aiken – Finding A Star

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. No, I haven’t watched AI in a very long time – therefore no favorite! I do remember the night Clay sang “Someone Else’s Star” and loved it but it

    doesn’t matter what Clay sings he is always the star and his song a favorite!

    Love the pics and the video – 17 years, it doesn’t seem that long ago for me!

    Thank you for keeping us up to date on our precious memories!

  2. No AI for me for many years. When you've seen the best, there is no reason to try to do better. I remember Clay singing this song 17 years ago. He did his best, as usual. Thanks for the video to enjoy on a rainy day.

  4. no I haven't watched since Idol two. Yes I remember Clay singing this song. I always wished Clay recorded a country CD. A great singer can sing anything. It's hard to believe it's been 17 years. Clay is still a star, he should sing again. Thanks for all the things you do for us, it keeps us in touch and makes us happy.

  5. I stopped watching Idol when Paula left! The show wasn't the same! Paula, Randy and Simon were the best combination! Love Clay's rendition of "Someone Else's Star", what a sincere performance by Clay!
