Clay Aiken – The Busy Month of May!

“The world’s favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.”
– Edwin Way Teale

Welcome to May…the 5th month of the year!

The month of May has been nice to Clay Aiken.  It has kept him in the headlines!

The following are some of the exciting times in May for Clay!

What can I say? – May 21, 2003 American Idol Finale! There was a 0.5% difference…Ruben won officially, but I will always think that Clay won too!!
May 24, 2004 – Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights Aids. Clay shared the Broadway stage with Lion King star, Heather Headley. He sang “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”
May 1, 2004 – White House Correspondents Dinner. Clay was an invited guest.
In an effort to bring attention to the plight of children in northern Uganda, UNICEF Ambassador Clay Aiken traveled to the conflict affected region to witness the phenomenon of “night commuters,” children who trek from the countryside into slightly more secure towns and UNICEF supported shelters every night to avoid being abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Clay was in Uganda from May 24-27, 2005.
May 4, 2008 – This was the last night of Clay’s first run on Broadway in Spamalot. The stagedoor crowds were huge so Clay climbed through a window and said his goodbye from the roof of the Shubert Theatre.
On Tuesday, May 13, 2014, Clay Aiken was officially announced as the winner of the North Carolina 2nd Congressional District Democratic Primary Race. The North Carolina Board of Elections reported that Clay had 11,678 votes which is 40.86% of the democratic votes cast in district 2.
On May 19, 2012 – Finale of Celebrity Apprentice. The reviewers and audience saw that Clay Aiken was intelligent, highly motivated, funny, articulate and ready to win the entire show. What Happened?
May 5, 2016 – Clay was on CNN with Don Lemon. He was on a panel of three people who talked about Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Each one had ideas about how Bernie and Hillary will get together after the primary to help each other in the general election.
May 11, 2016 – The Meredith Viera Show – Clay and Meredith chatted about the end of American Idol and about Donald Trump. The taping of this program happened back in early March. Clay was a guest on one of her last shows.

YIKES!!!  I have to stop!

 I have a list of so many May appearances by Clay that could be listed.

I hope we have a lot to add to the list after May 2017!

SO….do you remember a “May” experience that involved Clay? If so, will you share it with us?

  1. Thank you for all the pictures and the info on Clay. I love all the different photos of Clay. I believe you will be able to post when Clay wins after May 17th 2022. Go Clay. Thank you CANN.

  2. Fingers crossed that Clay wins the NC May 17, 2022 election. I’m supporting him even though I don’t live anywhere near NC.
