Clay Aiken – In Hollywood

Do you remember the short-lived TV show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest?  This show ran from January 12, 2004 through September 17, 2004.

The show was broadcast in the center  of Hollywood in a studio at Hollywood and Highland.

The show featured the popular guests of the time…but the show just never caught on.  Since the show was syndicated, it began to lose broadcasts and when 65% of the channels had removed the show, the series ended.

On January 15, 2004, Clay Aiken was a guest on the show.  As a joke, he and Ryan wore the same shirt and got lots of laughs.  Ryan showed a “before AI” picture of Clay and commented at how much better he looked now.  They also talked about how different  life was for Clay and laughed at the good and bad things that come with celebrity.  Ryan showed many of the gifts that the fans of Clay sent to the studio…flowers, donuts, stuffed animals, etc.

The two videos below show most of the time Clay was on the show on January 15th.

They are interesting and fun!

I am glad I found these YouTubes.

 I remembered some of the show, but I didn’t remember all of it!

  1. About a year ago I was on FB and happened to make contact with the woman,
    Diane, and we had a little conversation – it was a strange coincidence and I
    still thought that after all of these years it was the sweetest experience. She was
    so nice and still thrilled to meet Clay and share that doughnut! I did watch that
    show with Ryan and on the east coast freezing just like he said. Loved having this memory! Thank you!

  2. Thank you for all the pictures and the 2 videos. It has been a long time since I saw this. Thanks for the memories, I hope everyone will vote for Clay today. Thank you CANN.
