American Idol winner Ruben Studdard and runner-up Clay Aiken wowed an audience of screaming fans yesterday (26MAY03) - when they performed on America's TODAY TV show.

Aiken helped introduce "Roooooooooooooobin" Studdard, as the fans have come to call him, then beamed from the sidelines as his "Idol" pal crooned his renditions of FLYING WITHOUT WINGS and SUPERSTAR.

The two teamed for a patriotic Memorial Day duet, GOD BLESS THE USA.

According to larger-than-life Studdard, instant stardom has meant "going from place to place and not getting enough sleep. But it's all good - I'm having a great time".
