Ruben Studdard crowned 'American Idol,' but Clay Aiken still tops the Amazon CD Sales List
By Reality TV World staff, 05/22/2003
Ruben Studdard might have been crowned the winner during last evening's "American Idol" season finale, but so far Clay Aiken is proving to be the champion in the category that the show promoters really care about -- record sales.
As we reported on Monday, Clay's CD initially jumped out to an enormous lead for over Ruben's CD, with Clay's CD being ranked #1 overall as early as Saturday while Ruben languished at #240. While Clay has remained at #1 ever since, Ruben has steadily risen from #240 to #94 on Monday morning, to #40 on noontime Tuesday, and finally to #5 last evening before the finale aired.
