That Literally Happened
We caught up with some of the stars of our favorite early reality shows to see what it was like to compete on American Idol, Survivor, Fear Factor, and more!
This is an 8 minute video that talks about Reality TV. Clay is shown immediately in the video and makes fun of himself. They also show clips from Survivor, and many other reality shows.
Clay returns to the video at the 4:16 minutes. He talks about some fun things he remembers about American Idol. He even takes a minute to compliment Ryan Seacrest. It is fun to see Clay talk and laugh. I hope you will give it look.
Ten Years Ago!
Tried & True Album was dropped on June 2nd. (Two articles say June 1st?)
The following short reviews
Clay Aiken is back in his element with this album of 50’s and 60’s classics. Aiken‘s voice is tailor-made for crooning, and that — plus his impeccable diction and lush orchestration — make for a most enjoyable album!
NEW YORK (Billboard):
…Aiken’s vocals exude a relaxed vibe that seemingly reflects his recent stint on Broadway in “Spamalot!” That even goes for a surprisingly authoritative version of “Mack the Knife,” where Aiken summons a swagger he never previously displayed. Other songs include “Moon River” (with a tasty acoustic-guitar solo by Vince Gill), a jazzy take on Conway Twitty’s “It’s Only Make Believe” and “Unchained Melody,” which gets the full Hollywood-orchestra treatment.
This album caused a lot of talk. People either loved it or didn’t. Personally, it was my favorite!
