  • Edmonton Sun - late night laughs ... Jimmy Kimmel mentions Clay in monologue -

    Jimmy Kimmel

    America has a new American Idol. Hillary Clinton called the loser, David Archuleta, and told him not to give up ... Lots of people have gone on to have huge careers even though they did not win: Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, Sting. Bruce Springsteen didn't win American Idol either.

  • American Idol -
    • - a Clay mention ... in Spanish -
      El joven de Murray, Utah, se tuvo que conformar con ser el segundo mejor de la competencia, pero como lo han probado concursantes anteriores como Clay Aiken o Chris Daughtry, no se necesita ganar "American Idol" para tener una carrera musical exitosa.
      In rough English:
      The youngest of Murray, Utah, had to be content with being second best in the competition, but as has been proven as previous contestants Clay Aiken or Chris Daughtry, there is no need to win "American Idol" to have a successful musical career.

      The "Davids" duel is the first time two male contestants have competed for the "Idol" title since Ruben Studdard defeated Clay Aiken in the show's second season in 2003.
    • redOrbit -
      While American culture is very focused on winners taking all, the history of "American Idol" suggests that some runners up and finalists have had more lucrative careers than some winners. Jennifer Hudson, who was sixth runner-up in the 2002 run of "American Idol," won an Oscar for her role in the hit motion picture "Dreamgirls." Other notable runners-up include Clay Aiken and Chris Daughtry.
    • Newsweek -
      Real Champ
      David Archuleta Tween heartthrob is like the next Josh Groban—but with louder groupies.

      Clay Aiken He might be odd, but his fans adore him. He's sold 5 million albums.

      Chris Daughtry He finished fourth on the show, but he had the No. 1 CD of last year.
