He's by far then best of all the males throughout all of American Idol (any season), but he's still not as good as about 6 or 7 girls. I prefer Kimberely Locke, but i do like Clay alot. But what are people saying, how he has more power and range then Kelly Clarkson or even Mandisa..? He technically should have won, but he seems better suited as a runner-up. fav performances: Bridge over Troubled Water/Solitare/Buttercup

CLAYTON, Bring it on!

'Voice Clarity:' Deep belly tone at times. Nowhere near as clear as a Whitney in her prime, but clear enough. 'Voice Range:' I've never heard him match the range of a Whitney. Never ever sang as high as a Mariah. But good enough range. 'Voice Power:' Never heard him match the power of a Whitney in her prime, but good power. 'Voice Control:' He has great control. 'Emotes with Feeling:' Yes - pretty good. 'Sings with pizzazz, flair, & energy:' Ok - not as great as his fans think but good. 'Own style and originality:' Yeah somewhat. 'Stage Presence:' For the most part yeah, but not a totally. 'Appeal, charm, or charisma:' Yeah. 'Physically Attractive:' No, the guy looks ordinary. 'Most outstanding performances:' I give him a solid 9. Clay is probably one of the best of all time. Not all 10's like his idiot fans think. But he definitely is one of the best.

I have seen EVERY American Idol season and no season has been as good and as exciting as season 2. Clay got ripped off because producers NEEDED Ruben to win. Not taking away from Ruben, because I loved him, but Clay was the clear winner. He then proved it with a triple platinum album and another platinum Christmas album and being ranked 16 in the top grossing tours for 2005. There has never been anyone who can captivate a crowd like Clay can and, in my opinion, never will be again. Clay's CD Measure of a Man was the first CD I bought in 15 years.

Clay Aiken is one of those bonafied natural entertainers who suddenly appears seemingly out of nowhere. Clay is the real deal, a born showman. He has extreme vocal talent, the likes of which is rare in pop music. His command of the stage and his charisma go beyond that of Elvis Presley because he is articulate, has an innate sense of humor of which he himself is the object, and because he communicates soul-to-soul with his listeners on a broader spectrum via his songs. Clay is a blend of superb musical power and range, of ability to successfully sing almost any type of pop music, of a unique style of his own, and of magnetic charm that has no end. His music is pure and honest. It exudes from his personality and is a extension of what he believes and how he lives. His singing becomes a breath of fresh air - clean and exhilerating. You are always left wanting more. Clay possesses sheer joy that permeates and radiates through all of his singing. He projects what is genuine and positive and up-lifts his audiences with his voice. In his most mesmerizing way, his singing takes you to places on high spiritual levels, places where there exists nothing but peace and love, places you do not wish to leave.

Clay Aiken is something very special. (*note* I do think he is even better now than he was on Idol, but I am only rating his Idol performances.) His voice is unique and quite amazing, multi-layered; at times rich, resonant, warm, bright, open, somber, soothing, exciting. His range is excellent, and he has superb breath-control, phrasing and sense of pitch. He very rarely missed a note, and he pushed himself to sing songs that stretched him to his limits. Clay was engaging, a leader, smart, caring, fascinating and yet approachable in personality. His makeover transformation was perhaps focused on too much, as I found him attractive even in his more 'nerdy days, he only needed a little fashion and style advice, and someone to tame and properly color that unruly hair. His stage-presence was a bit subdued at times, perhaps due to the criticisms he was given, but he still commanded attention on-stage. Clay's strengths are his top-notch voice, musicality, work-ethic, smarts and savvy, and that joyful quirkiness that makes him different from the rest. His weaknesses ? maybe a lack of confidence in himself, an occasional disconnect with deeper lyrics and a desire to do something more worthy than being "just a popstar"

From the first note I heard him sing, Clay captured and held my attention. In my opinion, Clay took each song he sang on AI2 and made it his own. He also took the constructive criticism of the judges and changed his look and made it his own. His spiky-haired silhouette is easily recognizable, and I have to chuckle a little bit when I see other would-be idols imitating the "Clay-look." I have always felt that Clay has the "it" factor that Simon spoke of. He has incredible vocal power and range, and he has a remarkable stage presence with a knack for drawing an audience into his performances. He has a winning smile, an easy-going personality and a passion for people, especially children with disabilities, which touches my heart. He is genuine and unpretentious, and unlike many artists today who are in the business for the fame, fortune and glory, Clay has decided to take his notoriety and use it to benefit others. (He has worked to help autistic children, he has created the Bubel/Aiken Foundation and he has been named as an ambassador for UNICEF in the area of education among other noteworthy accomplishments). He is extremely likeable, even loveable, and I intend to follow and support his career 'Always and Forever.'

There have been some decent singers from the show, and they have got another 'star' in Kelly Clarkson. The biggest difference I have seen, after seeing them both in concert several times, Kelly sounds great on recordings, did not enjoy her 'live' performances at all. Clay sounds great on recordings, his 'live' performances will totally take your breath away. The voice is truly amazing! And his charisma and charm on stage have the audience totally wrapped around his finger throughout his show. He has more stage presence than many seasoned professionals have.

Clay Aiken is the best

Clay Aiken-Truly the "Ideal" Idol......
Jun 06, 2005 10:36 PM ET
Reviewed by: bdmelton2003
Clay Aiken is an extremely talented and versatile artist with a beautiful, pure and powerful voice, range and control. Clay's voice is a welcomed "balm" to worn-out ears and brings great joy to a tired heart. Clay sings with so much passion that he draws the listener not only into the words of the song, but deep into his soul, as well. Clay is a witty, charming, personable artist/performer who wins and continues to hold the attention of his audience from the time he opens his mouth until his last note or word. Clay ALWAYS leaves his audience overflowing with happiness and fulfillment and ALWAYS they leave wanting more. Clay is also very articulate and intelligent and communicates with his fans/audience/interviewers/politicians on every level. The genuine love and compassion which Clay possesses always shines through whether he is singing, doing an interview or simply communicating one-on-one. He is truly a wonderful role model for the young and old example for the young as they begin their lives and an reminder for the older as to how they should live out the rest of theirs. Clay Aiken has the "X" factor and carries it off with grace and humility. Thank you. Dianne

And then I heard this voice on American Idol and my life has not been the same. He is the only one I travel around the country to see in concert and buy anything and everything with his picture. I truly adore this man and will follow his career until the end. I still like my rock bands but I am content with seeing them one time in concert and just buying their cds.

He really does have a quality to his voice that all ages respond deeply too. He sings with passion and connects the audience to the heart of the music with a rare story telling gift. His power and range just blow others off the stage. He can cover a variety of styles of music in a versatile and very credible manner.

Clay began on Idol very near what we then thought was the top of the game. He raised the bar each week to levels unexpected of an amateur performer, and by the time his season ended, he was a seasoned pro in every way. What makes Clay the greatest of them all is that the growth has continued beyond "seasoned pro" to where he now compares well with the best pop artists of all time. Only Mario Lanza before him was a great male singer who crossed over into popular music for the masses. Clay is the example that needs to be followed by other Idol contestants who wish to become artists admired and beloved by the world. Start high and continually grow, artistically and personally.

Someone must have clued them in, because there were Broadway performances every week the next season and somehow that was okay.

I actually re-watched many of the performances of AI1 and AI2 to prepare for the rankings. The third and forth season are still fresh in my mind. This was fun because I'm a real fan of the show and tried to be fair. Now, about Clay Aiken. It would be hard to rate Aiken low on vocal power, range and appeal. I think there was alot of talent on the second season show:Kimberly Locke(lovely voice) and Trenecye(great energy)and Ruben(smooth). They had some excellent songs, but Aiken's voice was stunning. Since I was trying to be fair, I graded him lower on appearance and stage presence even though most were not gorgeous that season or all over the stage for that matter. I love Elton John, but liked Aiken's version better. I did like the fact that he changed the songs somewhat when he sang covers. Just a sidenote after watching four seasons: I liked the harmonizing that the Season 2 contestants did better than the other seasons. I don't know if that's because they all lived together in the Idol mansion and became friends, had more time to practice or they had choral backgrounds. It should be about the group not the solo singer in the group numbers. Did anyone else notice this?

You haven't seen or heard Clay really until you see this guy live. He puts on such a wonderful show. His studio versions do not even match his live singing.

I've also been to Kelly's recent solo concert and she did a great job! I enjoyed it but Kelly still needs to work on her stage presence. She rambles on and on while trying to connect with the audience and she talks sooooo fast that half the time I didn't even understand a word of what she was saying. However, I was very impressed with the fact that she sang almost 90 minutes nonstop without any backup singing help.

I have liked Clay best of all of the contestants I have seen on American Idol. I love the sound of his voice. I love the fact that I can understand the lyrics. I love the songs that he has chosen. Clay had the ability to grab my attention from the first and has managed to keep it two years after the show is over. I have purchased his CD's and attended his concerts and plan to keep on buying and attending concerts as often as I can. Clay has a nice clean look. He puts emotion into the songs that he sings and he is able to convey their meaning. He is my favorite of all AI contestants so far.

This guy has it all. I've watched and listened thru all the Idol shows and only a couple of contestants even come close to matching the consistently great perfomances by Clay Aiken. He just kept getting better, finishing with his unparalled rendition of Bridge Over Troubled Water. Kinda felt like time stood still for a moment. His combination of high and low note power, range, charisma and song genre flexibility has gone unmatched. He sells the song...old or new. If you haven't been to one of his concerts, treat yourself, pack your bags and go. He has kept on improving and even impressed the rocker side of me.

I loved this kid from first sighting on AI2, and he hasn't let me down yet. I first fell in love with his voice. Then I heard him give a few interviews, and I fell in love with his wit, charm, and intelligence. I was slower than most of my peers to appreciate his physical beauty, but I now have my own collection of Clay photographs, to go with my CDs, video, news clippings, and books. I've never been this involved with any other celebrity, and don't expect to be again.

His voice was and is glorious, and he grew each week and has continued to do so in the two years since his season ended. He has well earned the very top spot in this poll, having proven his ability over time. I am confident he will continue to enchant his audiences for many years to come.

Horrible was Ruben beating Clay but the charts have proven - as Simon said they would - that the real winner would be seen = Clay Aiken (Him, Kelly, and Carrie would be the top 3 in an allstar Idol for obvious reasons)!

Being an admitted Clay fan, I have continued to watch AI every year. Unlike many, I enjoy the competition itself. I find many of the contestants unable to sing on key. Although I cannot sing, I was raised on music of all kinds from pop to classical. My parents felt music was important and we listened to music every day. That being said, there are few "Idols" who have impressed me. Kelly, Clay, LaToya and this year, Vonzelle all have a remarkable voice. However, Clay is the ultimate performer. He is comfortable on stage. He is not afraid to try something new. His humor in endearing. His voice speaks for itself. People have criticized Clay for not playing an instrument or writing his own material. For those of us who have seen Clay in concert, his voice is his instrument. His control is amazing and he makes it all seem effortless. He is truly an artist. Thanks for listening.

Something about the way his voice intones, he moves me like no other singer. Incredible range, incredible tone, incredible power to his voice. He's always had a unique knack of selling a song that looks natural. He has a way of moving his hands on the mike stand and looking into the camera that has my insides turning to liquid. He has charisma oozing from every pore of his body and seems able to sing almost any song he chooses and make it come off well.

Clay takes command and control of those who bathe in the glory of his voice. He has astounding vocal talents and that beauty of instrument just draws the listener in. He is so beautiful to look at, to watch, to study, to admire ... the way those lips form his deepest, most sacred thoughts and kiss them to the soul to hold and to cherish ... the way his long, expressive fingers fondle the air to coax poetry and passion infusing the depth of the songs he performs. His beauty defies the form as it is so much about the inner infinity as it reaches to the depths of his very essence. A true artist in his own rights.

He is just so at ease on stage. Also the season two is the best! Season four started out really strong. However, these contestants don't show much improvement and they are playing safe instead of going out of their own comfortable zone, showing more versatility. just MHO. -Katee

Basically to quote Gladys "He is pure and special." The only reason he doesn't get perfect 10s from me is because I know he still has more growning and changing to do. He was terrific on AI, but has grown a lot since then, in less than 2 years. His voice is so powerful that he probably doesn't even have full control at all times---but how many artist would love to have that problem. He is still learning where and how to use that power he has. His range is utterly fantastic. Michael Orland even said he had more range than anyone else ever on the show---and that they didn't even know how high his voice could possibly reach. He just shows more each time he performs. He continues to change his style and delivery---even on songs he had already mastered. Someone said after Oprah "leave it to Clay to take a song of his, and still change it and make it his own again." His change and performance of I Will Carry You just goes to show the creative side of this man--the power, yet control. The soul and emotion he puts forth. His life experiences are also making huge changes in him---all his humanitarian efforts are being reflected in his feelings and emotions on various songs. As good as BOTW was on the AI finale, he knocked it out of the park in Florida in April---and totally nailed that final note without the stretch that it was during AI. He has grown that much--that note is now totally comfortable for him. To all those of you who can't fairly evaluate someone, you are ridiculous. No one who is being honest can score him with 1's on anything in this list. You have shown you are obviously carrying your "idol fan wars" to this site---it's pretty pathetic.

His live performances of the songs on his CD come alive in concert. He experiments - he enfuses each song with such energy and passion. And he CAN dance! Whether he's having fun with fans during When You Say You love me or 'dirty dancing' with Angela during Princes When Doves Cry (Clay's vocals are wonderful too) or getting down with Quiana while singing Chain of Fools - the man can dance! And He is very sexy whether he's sitting on a stool during an acoustic set, caught up in the passion of I Survived You or singing the praises of God in You Were There. - He is a very talented man and he's just getting started. I hope radio will be more receptive to his sophomore CD - he is so much bette than what they are playing now. It is so fun to hear the comments of folks leaving his concerts. Casual fans or even non believers come away shaking there heads saying things like 'Wow - he's very entertaining!'
