Tonight, Neil Sedaka was the guest judge on American Idol 2. The man was brilliant.

After Clay's first performance ("Build Me Up, Buttercup"), he said that Clay "sing[s] like Andre Agassi plays tennis" and that he would "kill to write and produce [Clay Aiken's] first CD."

After Clay's second performance ("Solitaire"), he, looking to be on the verge of tears, said that he had "lost that song to [Clay] tonight...from now on it will be a Clay Aiken song."

High praise from one of the most successful songwriters in history.
