Clay Aiken Fans Hit World Idol Poll

On My Way Here Album Clips - Montage by SueReu

Clay Nation Recalls Voting Skills

Poll, Montage Tender Deja Vu

It's been one deja vu experience after another for Clay Aiken fans who this week dusted off latent voting skills and began participating in a worldwide poll that recalls the competitive American Idol, MTV and Top 10 radio countdowns from past seasons.

Brush up on your voting techniques, and join those participating in Tweeterwall's Ultimate World Idol poll. The rules are simple, and you are only allowed one vote every 20 minutes. In one day, the Clay Nation moved Singer Man from #47 with 80 votes to #2 with 6,063 at 5:29 p.m. Tuesday, 9/1.

UPDATE: Ultimate World Idol standings at Tweeterwall on Thursday, 11 p.m.; Friday, 11 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m.

Adam: 16,822 ... 19,338 ... 20,215
Clay: 12,436 ... 15,892 ... 17,001

Come on Clay Nation!

The poll runs through September, so click on the World Idol link and be counted many times, Clay Nation. Even if second place has been a good fit for Clay, first would be kinda nice, too.

Montage Virtual Memory Lane

For more deja vu moments, check out SueReu's montage of On My Way Here Album Clips above and at YouTube. With each track, she credits the songwriters while video clips from six tours, TV appearances, UNICEF trips, and a National Inclusion Project's Gala provide a visual walk down memory lane.

Caro, thanks for the great blog and thanks for using my montage!! I had a really good time putting that one together. I got stuck at Sacrificial Love, but it ended up being one of my favorite clips :)

Great graphics by AmazingCA & Claystruck (and of course kudos to our wonderful fan photographers out there!!!)

I gotta admit I'm having a wonderful time over at the Worldwide Idol Poll - it's been a while since we flexed our collective muscles - feels GOOD LOL!!!

Have a great week!!

We are all very thankful for such great talents from all those creating the clips and montages. I wish I could be more helpful, but I will just have to help by watching and passing on your wonderful work of art!
Thanks to all of you!

Caro, the comments section showed up this time. Yay!

Love the montage! It sure covers a number of Clay events in the last six years. He has accomplished so much, not just with his singing career and TV appearances but all he has done for Unicef and his foundation….many great memories.

Thanks for another blog full of goodies!

Love and hugs,

Thanks Caro for your blog. I love the excitement in the air and am enjoying voting on World Idol and TBWE plus others. SueReu's montage is just great!

Sigh, I love Clay Aiken.

clayam said...

have I said lately how much I love Clay Aiken and voting for him?

fgs said...

Nice blog, great graphics as usual. There are a bunch of us voting in the poll. Too bad twitterwall breaks down fairly often and doesn't always count the votes. I wonder if twitterwall has broken down in previous polls? I think this is the first poll Clay fans have voted in there. Fans seem energized that Clay is now with Universal Decca, part of the number 1 music company.

Such gorgeous pictures! Even though somehow AL gained 1200 votes in 10 minutes, Clay's fans are keeping their nose to the grindstone and continuing to work away at voting on Worldwide Idol Poll TweeterWall.

katy said...

As claysweetea said we'd love to have you vote in the poll. Carlove coming to your blog. Always so refreshing like a cool breeze on a hot day. Thanks for your promo of Clay.

Hi Caro. Love the blog. Suerue's montage is a great collage of Clays songs. I love how she put them all together to fit the clips to each song part.

I tried voting on the poll but still not sure how it works.. will be bugging you about it soon. heee

PS: Love the pictures of Kai I saw in your previously previous blog. :)



Sandy said...

Great Blog Caro! Just hitting play on the montage and hearing Clay's beautiful voice is a great excuse to visit.

I have been voting...not as often as I should as time is of value these days so I do it when I get some time!

Just a little over six weeks now till I hear this voice again!!! WOO HOO!!!!

Have a great long weekend!



PaulaBear said...
