I CANNOT POSSIBLY BE THE FIRST PERSON TO REALIZE THIS: After he loses the American Idol crown to Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken belongs on Broadway in the role of the angsty video artist Mark Cohen in Rent. Right? Right.

It's a melodramatic musical posing as a rock/pop show, just like the magical elf from North Carolina. Just imagine him working his enunciational magic through wordy tunes like "La Vie Boheme":
To days of inspiration
Playing hookey, making something out of nothing
The need to express -
To communicate,
To going against the grain,
Going insane
Going mad

To loving tension, no pension
To more than one dimension,
To starving for attention,
Hating convention, hating pretension
Not to mention of course,
Hating dear old mom and dad

To riding your bike,
Midday past the three piece suits
To fruits - to no absolutes -
To Absolut - to choice -
To the Village Voice -
To any passing fad

La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme

(Okay, I'm second. One more person and it's a meme. Two more, and we've got a movement.)
