Clay Aiken – A Decade of Friendship

It has almost been a decade since Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard met while they were contestants on Season 2 of American Idol.  I wonder if they even thought that they would still be good friends 10 years later.

While Clay is putting the final touches on his Joyful Noise Tour, Ruben is in Branson, Missouri.  He is there with four other American Idol finalists  to begin about a month-long show schedule at the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre.

The show, “The Finalists, Live!”  features Ruben, Vonzell Solomon, Katie Stevens, Bo Bice and R.J. Helton.  They will  perform Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays through Aug. 18, according to the theater’s website.

The following are some fun pictures of Clay and Ruben.
