wahoooo!!! first comment. Clay is amazing. He should win this award. But, it might be a couple of years!!! (shout out to all fellow claymates and clack gatherers.)

Clay is an incredible talent, and a wonderful person. It's still 20 years away, but so long as he keeps putting out platinum records and using his celebrity status for good causes, he's a shoe-in for 2028.

Are you serious? You're not serious. Are they serious? Oh my god, you're serious.

Yeah, I'm serious. He is one of the best singers popular music has to offer, is a performer of incredible integrity, has cross-generational appeal, has a ludicrously dedicated fanbase, has the record for highest-selling single of all time and donates a great deal of his time and effort towards truly charitable causes. Also, unlike most people, I have actually heard some of the music he has written than his American Idol slaveholders are reluctant to allo whim to release. On top of all the other things he does, he is a talented songwriter too. He's not going anywhere for awhile, so in the twenty or so years that must pass before he can be eligible he'll have plenty of time to grow as a performer.

Okay so I can't hate on clay just cuz i don't like his genre, but come on people, this is the ROCK AND ROLL hall of fame. not the pop hall of fame. i admit, he has tallent, but he's not right for such an honor. anyone heard of the clay aiken diet?? eat a whole bunch of food and then go listen to his CD! :D okay, that was mean, but i like that joke. y'all should try listenin to real music, like senses fail!

All those who don't think he qualifies, just LISTEN to his new CD!!!!! It rocks!!!!!
Posted by k on Monday, 08.18.08 @ 20:11pm
k...You are kidding, right??? Comparing him to those legendary artists is, in a word...ridiculous. Maybe you should go listen to the artists you mentioned for a while. I gaurantee you wouldn't listen to Aiken anymore.

Gitarzan, that poster just HAS to be taking the piss. I mean, there's an audience for just about anything out there, but surely one's gotta now that Clay Aiken's shot at being considered for the Hall of Fame is about as strong as Barney's- or, Hanna Montana, for that matter.

You put Clay Aikens in the same category with Frank! My father and uncles must be turning in their graves right now wile spitting Italian curses your way. The sooner Clay goes away, the better this world will be.

I am proud to say that I've never watched one episode of American Idol...being a musician of sorts, I have more respect for artists that do it the hard way. As far as Simon Cowell goes, I think Bob the Dog (my Springer Spaniel) has more tact and musical knowledge than he does!
Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 08.19.08 @ 07:14am
I haven't either Gitarzan

All right, now how did Clay Aiken get to be on the Hot List? This is what I was getting at last week. Was it because he was mentioned 3 or 4 times over the last week? I know nothing that could be making this man a hot ticket right now, unless he is slated to follow Anthrax in the featured artists spot.
Posted by Cheesecrop on Sunday, 08.24.08 @ 16:36pm
I listened to some of his new stuff on myspace. I almost threw up all over the computer. You call that rock!? Go pop in "Kill 'Em All," "High Voltage," or any other album by Metallica, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd (I think you get the picture), etc., and then tell me that crap is rock, not to mention Hall of Fame worthy. "Rise up from the ashes" my ass...

Clay Aiken? Is this some kind of a sick joke?

Was there anything else in the news that day!?!

If there was a "Hell no" button I would have clicked it.

He won't get in cause he will be to busy sucking american idol producer's dicks.

How does Clay Aiken get "yes" votes??? (Remember, the question asks WILL).
