Clay Aiken and the North Carolinia six

Clay Aiken loves to joke about coming in second on American Idol's season 2. But he was the first from North Carolina to hit the Idol stage in 2003. To date there are six North Carolinians including Clay.

After Clay came Fantasia Barrino from High Point in the 3rd season. She won that year.

Season 5 included 3 more North Carolinians.

Bucky Covington from Rockingham who wound up in 8th place.

Chris Daughtry from McLeansville who wound up in 4th place.

Kellie Pickler from Albemarle who wound up in 6th place.

And now in Season 8 we have Anoop Desai from Chapel Hill who became contestant number 13.

I love the NC idols. Of course, I am very partial to Bucky but I think they all are great. Did you ever see the animated clip about the NC Idol contestants. It was so funny. I need to go find it if I can.

Those are some very talented people in that list and they all have done very well.
But - I am very partial to Mr. Aiken... :o)

I haven't paid much attention to Idol since Clay was on, but I did know about Fantasia, Bucky and Daughtry. Of course, the best of them was Clay, without question!
