    Interesting pairing. I look forward to it!

    I saw Clay on The View. The only way those ladies let him get a word in is when he said how some kids could be a$$holes.

  • Sooze

    This duet is going to be GREAT! Very interesting pairing, both have great voices.

  • katy

    “I Believe We Can” should be an inspirational song. Anyone know the lyrics? Clay and Chaka will do it justice.

  • Vickie


    According to Clay’s exit interview, that line was scripted on his cue card. Some believe it was a set-up so that Whoopi could be funny.(They probably got the idea from when Clay called Simon an a$$hole on Joy Behar’s show.)

    I care along with millions of others who are fans of the show, Clay and Chaka Khan. My kids love this show. What fun for everyone.

  • LMAO

    LMAO @ The Clay stan posting over and over under different names. You are that transparent.

    Chaka is a queen tho.

  • Allisanna

    I would not have pictured Clay and Chaka as duet partners, but I’m betting their duet will be wonderful.

    Thanks for The View photos. Clay looked mighty fine that day.

  • Susanna

    Fantastic pairing!!!! Clay Aiken has the most stupendous voice, and can sing anything thrown at him! Chaka will be great too.
    The View was just as everyone said. Those women do not want to share center stage, especially Whoopie. She softened towards him, when he showcased her during the snack segment., of course, and loved his bleeped remark, as she got to steal the spotlight once again. It WAS scripted.
    He looked SO handsome, and really was a joy to watch. Hope he comes back, and SINGS!

  • Kathy

    Clay Aiken and Disney are great together. I love the song Proud of Your Boy and I can’t wait to hear him with Chaka. Both are very talented and I know it will be a hit. I would love for Clay to sing more for Disney.

  • diane


    How on earth would you know this? Obviously not a fan so why bother coming here. Just so much negativity in the world. Sad.

  • chris

    Clay has been singing with strong black divas for years (his back-ups, Trenyce & Kimberley, Ruben LOL!), so I’ve no doubt this will be a quality paring.

  • keith

    1.Please people, Clay is not hot.
    2. Wow what an interesting duo choice
    3. Will Chaka only use one lung so we can hear Clay?


  • Diane S.

    @Vickie: I remember just a few years back when he was too “holy” to sing the word “damn” in “I Survived You”. What a joke that all turned out to be.

  • Diane S.

    @Deb: He had a new jaw installed. I liked the original one better.

  • liz

    I wondered if we would hear any more from Clay Aiken since we keep hearing about a lot of them. It is a shame he turned out so different from the sweet Southern Christian guy he claimed to be on American Idol. Wonder why he claimed that and has turned out so different…used to say he would not use cuss words or sing about sex. Sure not the same cute looks either. I’m disappointed.
