Clay Aiken by Stephen Lovekin/ Clay Aiken by Stephen Lovekin/

Following in the footsteps of American Idol alumna Fantasia, Tamyra Gray and Diana DeGarmo, Clay Aiken is Broadway-bound. On Jan. 18, 2008, he'll appear for the first time in Monty Python's Spamalot as Sir Robin the Chicken-Hearted. For those unfamiliar with the character, lily-livered Sir Robin "nearly fought the dragon of Angnor" and "nearly stood up to the vicious chicken of Bristol," thus making him the perfect counterpart for Aiken, who "nearly beat Ruben Studdard." - Ben Katner
