April 15, 2003 -- Billy Joel Week with guest judge Smokey Robinson. Clay sings "Tell Her About It" starting the song in a slow tempo and then takes a surprising turn by taking the song uptempo to change it up. Simon is a bit of an ass this week by saying he prefers Clay with his eyes closed. I for one, prefer him with my eyes and ears open.

Oh, what memories!!!! There has never been, nor will there ever be, as great a telent as Clay Aiken on that show.

He was SOOOO versatile and charasmatic, and he has the one in a million voice to go with it.

Bless his heart. He uses his celebrity to do so much good, and still keeps on truckin' in the music world.
