Far be it from me to say that Clay Aiken is continuing on a one-way journey to a career playing hotel lounges, but according to People, dude will pop on the Dec. 22 episode of Days of Our Lives “as part of a private concert for Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) in the local Salem club called Dune.” Anyway, I always thought of Clay as more of a candlestick in the touring company of Beauty and the Beast.
