Do you remember when Clay Aiken was on the Top 8 show of American Idol in Season 2? The theme for the night was Billboard #1 Hits. Lionel Richie was the guest judge. Clay sang At This Moment by Billy Vera and the Beaters. In a surprising turn of events, Simon complimented Clay by saying:
That song was perfect for you. Absolutely on the money…Well Done!!
Yes…it was an excellent performance.
It’s been a long time since I have looked at some of these pictures and the video.
The entire group was talented!
Do you remember this appearance?
Yes I remember and Simon got it right this time.
One of my favorite songs from way back and Clay did it justice! Simon was a good guy this time. I definitely remember this and was getting more and more excited for Clay each week. Going to have to watch Idol this new season – Clay is mentoring one week and he and Ruben will be on the finale show. He made note of this in his message to us on the CB and CVS a few days ago! Loving it!
Thank you for the pictures and the video. I love the pictures and the video. I remember this night. Simon was correct on this. I will need to see the new season of AI. I have not seen the show in years, but I need to see Clay and Ruben. Thank you CANN.
How many years ago was this? I do remember watching Clay perform this song and was so happy that Simon was a very positive vote for him. I thought Clay did a good rendition of the song.
