Clay Aiken — “This is the Night”
(from Playlist: The Very Best of Clay Aiken) — This Is the Night - Playlist: The Very Best of Clay Aiken

I would say that I am rooting for Arsenio Hall to whup Clay Aiken’s ass on tonight’s fifth season finale of the greatest show on television, Donald Trump’s brilliantly trash-tastic competition series Celebrity Apprentice. But in the very early days of this website’s existence, I went ten rounds with the Claymates (with the able assistance of one Sherry Ann, who loves little more than picking fights on her best friend’s blog) over some misconstrued comments I made about an Aiken best-of compilation, and I can tell you from first-hand experience how ferociously loyal those folks are about the object of their ridonk obsession, and I wish not to re-place the Buzz in their kooky crosshairs. (‘Sides all that, I was rooting hard for a finale face-off between loopy Lisa Lampanelli and that shrewd bitch-on-four-wheels Aubrey O’Day (who surely was the favorite to win the whole shebang prior to her poorly-justified firing last week), so I don’t really have a dog in this particular hunt.). So, in other words: Go Clay!
