On November 24, 2003, Clay Aiken was a guest on David Letterman’s Show.  Clay was in New York still doing some promotion for his album, Measure of A Man.

Unlike Leno and Kimmel, David Letterman was reluctant to have his musical guest sit down and talk.  But, Clay was an exception.  Even though his time sitting with Letterman was very short, Clay did get a few moments to chat with the host.

Clay followed Paul Newman on the show and sung a great rendition of his hit song, Invisible.

All in all, it was a wonderful night and one that was watched by many people.  Letterman’s ratings were very high that night.

  1. I did see this program on TV – I was always tuned in to all of Clay’s personal appearances. It was indeed a short spot and it was interesting that Clay followed Paul Newman. It was special to hear Clay sing on the show and that he at least got to sit down with David Letterman if only for seconds.

  2. Thank you for the pictures and the video. I like the pictures and the video. I did watch Clay on the Lettermen Show. It was different to see a singer sit down next to the desk . It was a very short video. Have a nice short vacation. Thank you CANN.

  3. Although, a short interview with David Letterman, at least I watched his performance of “Invisible”. Have a safe and wonderful vacation! Hopefully hear from you this coming Sunday!

  4. I did see Clay on Letterman that evening. It wasn’t a show I watched, but tuned in that evening. Have a wonderful couple of days away. Stay well and safe.
