Clay Aiken in American Idol Finale…Um, Awkward

May 25, 2006 by  

I’ve been dying for my site to come back up because I have been dying to share this video with you.  If you read my American Idol Season Finale recap from last night, you may have noticed that I had a rather strong reaction to Clay Aiken’s performance.  I was looking foward to it all evening and then to have that AI-reject ruin it…I was pissed.

But alas, it’s a new day, and after watching the following clip, oh about 200 times, I have come to love the moment.  I can only imagine how high this would rank of The Sports Guy Unitentional Comedy scale.  The way the guy reacts when he sees Clay is one thing, but the fact that he kept singing along…classic!! It took forever for Seacrest to lure him off the stage so Clay could sing, and why didn’t someone turn off his mic?  Oh man…high comedy!!

Clay Aiken is nothing if he ain’t a Diva, so I’m sure he was none to pleased with that performance.  Then again, Clay works closely with the mentally challenged, and there is a strong possibility that this guy had some issues.  I feel bad that they exploited him in this way, but then again, I’m still laughing.

    yeah, you’re right. it’s gets funnier the more you watch it. our group couldn’t hear the tv over the loud screaming and laughing. we were all freaking out because of clay’s new look. i couldn’t help but think “The Spleen!”

    I loved it – I really, really did! I think it’s fantastic how Clay can still elicit such a strong and emotional response from fans and crazy guy aside, Clay took it all in stride; I thought he looked like he got a kick out of it, too! 🙂

    Also, it reminds me that second {and hopefully third placers like Elliott Yamin} can still ‘make it’.

    I can’t tell you how excited to was to find out that Clay Aiken was going to perform. Despite having his solo performance turned into a duet, he did a great job of handling it. What an amazing singer.

    I’m diggin the new hair… owwww!!!

    I have to say how very impressive Clay still is. What a class act. He truly seemed pleased to let the young man have his every dream (obviously to sing with his IDOL) come true! Kudos Clay, once again he has shown what a true gentleman & awesome performer he is! And ty for having the clip on your site to share with us

    Is it just me or does Clone Aiken look like Dwight Schrute?

    annoyingly whenever I come to your site, and try to watch a video, they are always no longer available – so annoying!!

    I think they actually did turn off his mic.

    That scene was hilarious! LMAO

    Clay on stage with a caricature of himself? What a great sport he was to do that! He’s about as far away from diva as you can get.

    That clip shows three of the reasons he’s so popular: his voice, his sense of humor, and the way he treats everybody with respect. I hope we get to see him again soon.

    He is so hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved seeing him on idol last week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was like the return of the talent on that show!!!!!!!! That in my opinion was the best part of the finale because you totally were not expecting it!!! I do not think that Michael Sandecki was expecting it either!!! He loke like he was going to have a heart attack when he saw clay come out of that split screen. I have to admit that I was about to have a heart attak too. I loved seeing him!!! I like the new him better!! alot of people say that they liked the “spikey do” better but not me he looks more like a man with his hair and body like this!!! He looks like he has somewhat of a fuller face. He is so HHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clay may be hot but there’s a reason he hasn’t found the dirl of his dreams and that reason is that he doesn’t like girls.
