After recent revelations by American Idol second place winner, Adam Lambert, accused American Idol judge of following him around until he had to take out a restraining order, another second place winner Clay Aiken said that was the experience he had had also.
"I don't know how he knew but even before the show was over, he was sending me flowers, etc.", Aiken reportedly told a reporter of the Country & Western Song Magazine.
But in the case of Aiken, Cowell proved to be a Cowell-ward as there were a couple of roadies who had already applied and received the promise of a good job, cornered Cowell and one held him while the other got right in his face and the beer & smoke flavored mouth told Cowell what might happen if he kept following Aiken around.
He apparently took the hint. He gave him a promise, and a mint.
One final question, why did these two talented guys, Aiken and Lambert (along with Boyle) all manage to wind up in the runner-up position?
Some pretty fierce-looking guys from Las Vegas are said to be checking that out.
