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

  1. I have not watched AI for many years. The show has changed a lot since the good old days when the ‘kids’ were there to just sing and not to have the latest style of clothing, etc. Clay & Ruben would be too ‘plain’ for the show now.

  2. First of all, I don’t watch American Idol since season 4. Right now it’s just another talent show with too much glitz! I love Clay’s rendition of “Someone Else’s Star”. Simon is so hard to please;. Thank you, CANN for sharing!

  3. Clay singing “Someone Else’s Star” was done very nicely and I watched AI for just a few seasons after Clay and Ruben. I have not watched after that. Like others have said it’s just too different in too many ways. They will never have another
    Season 2!
