Clay Aiken Rips American Idol in Brutal Twitter Tirade: 'I've Watched Root Canals More Entertaining'

Clay Aiken Slams American Idol

Don’t expect Clay Aiken to be invited back for American Idol‘s nostalgia-filled farewell season.

The Season 2 runner-up live-tweeted Wednesday’s premiere and pulled no punches, declaring at the outset that he was “watching American Idol for the first time in a decade,” before adding, “You never know what you’ve got til it’s gone.”

After taking a dig at the show’s sagging Nielsens, Aiken directed his wrath at judges Harry Connick Jt, Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban.
