American Idol Superstar Clay Aiken Returns to Broadway’s Spamalot Tonight

September 19th, 2008 · No Comments

American Idol season two runner up Clay Aiken is reprising his role as “Sir Robin” in Spamalot on Broadway tonight.  He is scheduled to perform the role through January 4th of next year.

Clay says “Since leaving Spamalot in May, jokes have just not been funny. Food has lost its taste. The grass is no longer green – the sky no longer blue. And, babies won’t stop crying!! I’m so excited about coming back to the funniest show in the world!”

Spamalot is the outrageous smash hit musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the film classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. Directed by Tony Award winner Mike Nichols, with a book by Eric Idle and music and lyrics by Mr. Idle and John Du Prez, Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their hilarious quest for the Holy Grail.

Aiken had filled out an application to participate in the reality show Amazing Race when a friend of his insisted that he try out for American Idol instead.

Television viewers first glimpsed Aiken during the audition episodes at the beginning of American Idol’s second season. The show’s judges first saw Aiken as a nerdy type unlikely to be any kind of idol, but after hearing him sing Heatwave’s “Always and Forever” decided to advance him to the next round. The clip of the judges’ surprise during this audition performance was replayed many times over the course of the competition.  Aiken made it to the round of 32 before being cut from the show, but he was invited to return for the “Wild Card” round and his performance of Elton John’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” sent him on to the final 12 as the viewer’s choice.  He came in a close second to Ruben Studdard the eventual winner.

Clay’s fifth album On My Way Here was released May 6, 2008 on the RCA label.
