Tidbits 12/14

  • Christmas tour mentions:
    • Minneapolis St. Paul Star Tribune -
      For each of his four holiday tours, Clay Aiken, "American Idol's" most successful runner-up, has come up with a special wrinkle. This year, he invited fans to write letters about their Christmas celebrations, and four have been chosen to read their words as the Minnesota Orchestra plays behind them. Read an interview with him in Sunday's Arts section. (7:30 p.m. Wed.-Thu., Orchestra Hall, $35-$77.) (J.B.)
    • Southtown Star -
      Star Plaza Theatre - Interstate 65 and U.S. 30, Merrillville, Ind.; (219) 769-6600 or (773) 734-7266. Lineup is: the Temptations, Saturday; Clay Aiken with an orchestra, Dec. 22; Styx, Dec. 28.
  • MTV Canada News - this week in Music history - "In 2003...American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken was named the Best-Mannered Person of 2003 by the National League of Junior Cotillions."
  • Philly Burbs - article about Christmas CDs and the compilation "Crooner's Christmas" which features a track from Clay -
    “Crooner's Christmas” rounds up male singers Clay Aiken, Elvis Presley, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Nat “King” Cole, Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Andy Williams.
  • Citizen's Voice - outstanding musician Lee Vincent passes away ...
    Vincent performed with many of the greatest musicians of modern times. Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole, Frank Sinatra Jr., Jerry Vale, Bobby Rydell, Danny Thomas, George Burns, Eddy Arnold, Perry Como, Frankie Laine, Johnny Mathis, the Dorseys, the Temptations, the Four Aces, the Four Tops, Smokey Robinson, Marie Osmond, Rosemary Clooney, Glenn Miller, Aretha Franklin and Clay Aiken.
  • Belleville News-Democrat reviews Blake Lewis' album -
    The second string (heck, even the third string) has been good for "Idol"dom. (See Chris Daughtry, Clay Aiken and Jennifer Hudson for reference.) But this time, the pickin's aren't so lush.
  • Foxes on Idol - poor first week sales for Blake Lewis -
    Blake Lewis’ Audio Day Dream hits the Billboard 200 this week, entering at #10 (Hot Shot Debut) with 98,000 copies sold. This is the same spot in which Jordin’s CD debuted with 119,000 copies sold. Blake’s first week sales are a little lower than last year’s runner-up, Katharine McPhee, whose self-titled debut entered the Billboard 200 at #2 with 116,000 copies sold, and also lower than Bo Bice (227,000) or Clay Aiken (613,000). But he did better than Justin Guarini (57,000) and Diana DeGarmo (47,000), which is definitely a good thing. Audio Day Dream also shows up on the Digital chart (#3) and Internet Album Sales (#23).
  • Inside Pulse on "American Idol Rewind", which is currently broadcasting Clay's season of American Idol in syndication nationwide:
    Currently airing, American Idol Rewind is highlighting Season Two. This is the season that really got the ball rolling for the show. We all remember the final battle between Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken. Who would become the next American Idol? It was a close vote, but we all know that Ruben eventually won. Now you can relive the exciting journey that Ruben and Clay took to the finals. You will also get to chance to catch up with all the "Top 12" contestants from that year as there are over 30 exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage from the second season of American Idol presented on American Idol Rewind.
