Tidbis 5/13

  • KODA 99.1 Radio - Clay will talk with Dana, one of the morning DJ's at KODA Sunny 99.1 in Houston in the wee hours of morning on Wednesday, 5/14, at 5:50 a.m. Though the interview may be over by the time you read this, check out 99.1's home page to see if the interview is available for you to listen to. You can listen to the interview on the radio station's website by clicking on at the top right of the home page where it says "Listen Live".
  • ChrispyCreme at The Clayboard tells us the following:
    The local FOX TV channel in Cincinnati will do a feature on Clay on Wednesday morning. The station says it will likely be run more than once between 7A-9A. (EDT)
  • from Jeanne Pierre at Clayversity:
    Anyone who lives in the Baltimore area, Channel 13 just had a promo for "Breakfast with Clay Aiken", tomorrow morning (Wednesday) at 6am during their Don and Marty news show. It's usually just a few minutes but the reporters are very respectful with their guests and it's a nice piece. No performance, conversation only.
  • MSNBC - Idol 7 coming to a close -
    Best season ever? Really?
    So even though audiences still feel affection for people like Kelly Clarkson and Fantasia Barrino (and, yes, even for the much maligned and punch lined Clay Aiken and the recently dropped from his label Taylor Hicks), feeling as though they helped find these performers, they know somewhere deep down that they didn’t at all. And it’s souring them to the process.
  • - lots of Clay on TV this week
  • Foxes on Idol - AI7 top 3 offers deja vu to AI2 top 3 -
    So it’s down to the final three. Two men, one woman. Two men with extremely loyal fan bases. One woman who came on strong, late. Of the two men, one has a decidedly female demographic, the other a decidedly male demographic. The woman has undeniable talent, but it is it just too late?

    Sounds like we’re talking about Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken, and Kimberley Locke, doesn’t it?
  • AutoBlog - Ford to "debut" its new Focus on American Idol -
    The 2009 Ford Focus Coupe will have a base MSRP of $15,920 when it goes on sale in late Summer, and you can check it out later tonight when Ford officially debuts it in a video on American Idol. We want to hear what supercar collector has to say about the new look Focus Coupe. Is it a Clay Aiken or a William Hung?
  • NBC 11 Atlanta - Clay on Rachael Ray Show this Friday -
    Friday, May 16th"Clay Aiken"

    American Idol's Clay Aiken is stopping by with a preview of his new music video, and his predictions on who will take this season's title! Then, Ace of Cakes star Duff has made some cakes out of some unusual ingredients. But can he make a high end cake using Rachael's pasta dish as the main ingredient? And you'll fall in love with pasta all over again with one bite of Rachael's roasted caprese spaghetti!
  • OMWH:
    • Akron Beacon Journal republishes Newday's review of OMWH -
      Clay Aiken has always seemed like the most bewildered of the American Idol graduates — his instant fame cut with a bit of what-just-happened? caution, his music a hit-or-miss split between what he wants and what he's supposed to want.

      Five years later, on his second full album of originals, On My Way Here, Aiken is starting to figure it out.

      He is at his best when he wraps his big voice around big ballads, usually ones with big messages attached. He maximizes the drama on As Long as We're Here to poignant effect, with booming phrases that would make Celine Dion proud, followed by vulnerable questioning that emo leading men would secretly admire. He undersells Something About Us like it was a classic Johnny Mathis ballad and fills The Real Me with a quavering uncertainty that makes it work.
    • Orlando Sentinel republishes the Denver Post review of OMWH -
      What is the measure of an artist?

      When it comes to Clay Aiken, you certainly can't tell from 2003's Measure of a Man, a CD released just five months after he lost to Ruben Studdard on American Idol.
    • Philadelphia Daily News can't even get the title of the CD right - "Speaking of "A.I.," second-season runner-up Clay Aiken is back with "On My Way Home" (RCA, B-). The set plots the sort of earnest, polished course that this year's first- or second-place winner David Archuleta is likely to take."
  • Idol:
    • Louisville Courier Journal - Clay tunes out of "American Idol" -
      Former "Idol" finalist Clay Aiken is among the missing fans. He told the TV show "Extra" last week that he doesn't watch it anymore. Aiken is thankful it launched his career, but says it's just not the show it once was.
    • USA Today Idol Chatter - a few Clay mentions in their commentary of AI7 -
      David's choice to continue working in one style might have him bumping up against the outer limits of his potential support. With everyone now doing three songs, one has to wonder if he can get away with doing three ballads this week in a Clay Aiken/R. Kelly mashup style (sorry for that visual).


      I question if three ballads can get it done with Syesha nipping at his heels and capable of bringing excitement to the stage. Even Clay, who was probably going to the finals no matter what, gave his fans Mack the Knife in his final three week to go along with the more typical Clay fare.
  • The Rake reviews OMWH... we respectfully disagree -
    There's something deliciously lame about Clay Aiken's new album, On My Way Here. On all his previous outputs, Aiken's milked his boyish, Pee-Wee-esque persona, happy to satisfy both the teenie-boppers and their wannabe moms. On this release, though, young Clayton is trying to mature. Sadly, it seems he's playing dress-up in his father's clothes, without realizing he's just playing.
