Clay Aiken, one of the most beloved alums in 'American Idol' history, came home tonight (April 18). The singer, who didn't win Season 2, losing by a tiny (124,000 votes, actually) margin to Ruben Studdard, returned to the show's stage to perform his rendition of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water.' He performed it when he competed and it still has that Clay touch.
Yesterday, May 8, North Carolina government officials passed Amendment One, which put a constitutional ban on gay marriage within the Southern state. Former 'American Idol' star Clay Aiken, who is an openly gay native of North Carolina, spoke to CNN about his opinions on Amendment One and what it means for homosexual and heterosexual residents of North Carolina.
