Clay Aiken – It’s In The Way

It’s in the way that you move me, and the way that you tease me,
The way that I want you tonight,
It’s in the way that you hold me, and the way that you know me,
When I can’t find the right words to say,
You feel it in the way, you feel it in the way.

I love The Way!

I know its been about 15 years since we heard the song for the first time, but I still enjoy hearing Clay sing the song!

On January 21, 2004, Clay was a guest on The Tonight Show…do you remember:

Clay Aiken – A Visit With David

David Letterman is a well-known television host and comedian. He hosted the talk show, Late Show with David Letterman which was broadcast on CBS.  Letterman  was a fixture on late night television since the 1982 debut of Late Night with David Letterman.    Johnny Carson, who was Letterman’s friend and mentor, is the only person to have a longer late-night hosting career.

Letterman was also a television and film producer. His company, Worldwide Pants, produced his show and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson. Worldwide Pants has also produced several prime-time comedies, including Everyone Loves Raymond and Ed.

Letterman’s shows have received 67 Emmy Award nominations, winning twelve times in his first 20 years in late night television. From 1993-2009 Letterman ranked higher than Leno in the annual Harris Poll of Nation’s Favorite TV Personality twelve times.

Letterman has a private foundation called The American Foundation for Courtesy and Grooming. Through it, Letterman has donated millions of dollars to charities and other non-profits in Indiana and Montana, celebrity-affiliated organizations, universities, and other organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Salvation Army and Doctors Without Borders.

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.

I was able to find a video of the song and a short moment of Clay chatting with David.

Clay Aiken – Let’s Celebrate!

 

Yesterday was the anniversary of the Season 2 Finale of American Idol.  It is hard to realize that it has been 16 years since that fateful night.

To me, there were two winners on the finale night in 2003.

Both Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard were amazing and ready to Reach for the Stars.

Let’s have a toast to the show that introduced Clay Aiken to the  world!!

With three performances each, Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard showed the world their singing prowess on the Finale of American Idol, Season II.  The competition, held on May 20, 2003 was the last chance to swing the final votes over to their side. Their performances blew the roof off the place.

On the finale night, Ryan Seacrest started the show by stating that it started with 70,000 contestants and came down to two southern boys who are the most unlikely people in the world to be there.  He also reminded the audience that they would have 3 hours to vote and how important the vote is this evening.

The final round of the night was amazing.  Singing Flying Without Wings, Ruben  delivered an outstanding performance.  The judges commented that it was the best performance of the night.

Clay then performed “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and did a tremendous job.  Accompanied by a choir, Clay knocked the song out of the park.  It left all three judges with big smiles on their faces.

The night produced beautiful performances and two very different vocal styles. Both performers left it all on the stage.

Finally, Ryan said “it’s the closest vote in American Idol history, the American Idol is…….Ruben Studdard.”

 The 2 winners that night were talented young men who were ready to step into the world of pop music.

And, as we all know, coming in second just didn’t matter.

I hope you enjoy the videos of Clay’s performances and then also watch the group numbers from the finale.

 

 

 

WOW!  So much talent!

OK, Clay!!!  We need 50 more years of your talent, singing, humor and compassion!

 I can’t wait to see the 20th Anniversary!

What an exciting bit of news.

BroadwayWorld posted a great article about Clay and Grease:

Clay Aiken, Zach Adkins, Jackie Burns and More Join GREASE at Pittsburgh CLO

Pittsburgh CLO will fill the Benedum Center with the sock-hop sounds of the original high school musical, GREASE, June 7 – 16. Tickets are now available by phone at 412-456-6666, online at pittsburgh CLO.org or by visiting the Box Office at Theater Square.

Superstar of stage and silver screen, American Idol favorite and vocal virtuoso Clay Aiken joins the cast as Teen Angel!

Clay Aiken most recently starred on Broadway, alongside Ruben Studdard, in Ruben & Clay’s First Annual Christmas Carol Family Fun Pageant Spectacular Reunion Show at the Imperial Theater. The New York Times called the production ‘A Christmas Miracle’. This came ten years after Clay’s critically lauded Broadway debut in Monty Python’s Spamalot. On the heels of Idol, he became the first artist in history to have his first single debut at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. His subsequent album, Measure Of A Man, also debuted at #1 with the highest first week sales by a debut artist. His 2004 holiday release, Merry Christmas With Love, set a record for the fastest selling holiday album of the SoundScan era and remains tied for the highest charting debut of a holiday album in Billboard history. He served 9 years as a UNICEF Ambassador and in 2003, he co-founded, with Diane Bubel, what is now the National Inclusion Project to advocate and increase opportunities for children with disabilities to be included in extracurricular activities (such as summer camps and after-school programs) with their non-disabled peers. Additional TV appearances include: 30 Rock, The Office, Scrubs, Days Of Our Lives, and Law & Order: SVU. Additional 2nd place finishes include: The Celebrity Apprentice in 2012 and the NC 2nd District US House race in 2014
