Clay Aiken Really Hated Last Night's 'American Idol' Premiere

FUSE TV - Clay Aiken Really Hated Last Night's 'American Idol' Premiere

American Idol kicked off its final season last night, and one person was not happy with the way it went down: Season 2 star Clay Aiken!

The 2003 runner-up fired out a string of critical tweets after claiming that he was watching the show "for the first time in a decade." He particularly wasn't fond of the current judges: Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr.
