I so loved their being together for this show. What a great interview for both of them... Is it any wonder that the two of them hit it off and have remained friends? I think not, as Clay Aiken, once he has embraced you, you are his!..

Thanks for reminding us of their great friendship and his honoring their friendship by writing this speech for Tyra!

Ah, what fun memories. Clay Aiken and Tyra Banks together - a match made in TV heaven!

And it's oh so special that Clay was asked to present the GLAAD award to Tyra. I'm beyond thrilled for both of these compassionate, warm hearted, and beautiful people.
