  • Clay Aiken told Billboard Magazine that the more recent seasons of American Idol focus on the judges more than the contestants.

Clay Aiken had some insightful things to say about “American Idol” to Billboard magazine.

The second-season contestant said that circumstances have changed with the franchise.

“When I was on, Ruben [Studdard] and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show. Now, ‘Idol’ is about the judges. I don’t even know if they remember there are contestants anymore.”

He makes a good point because more people can probably name the vice president of the United States than the past three winners of “Idol.”

And that’s saying something.
