Clay Aiken acts opposite Aminat and two other girls as seen in the new sneak peek released for 'America's Next Top Model' April 8 episode.

This Wednesday, April 8, Clay Aiken will be the guest judge on "" and he will be teaching the girls on how to "act like a model". A sneak peek of his acting session has been released, revealing him as the acting partner of London, Aminat and Natalie, and posing as the owner of House de la Clay.

According to Clay who talked to Associated Press, the particular episode wants to extract the acting ability of the models "in a large and comedic way." He explained further, "A lot of the struggle for these contestants is to be able to come out of their shells."

Clay was personally invited by the show's host who is also a good friend of him. Since the the show wants to bring acting to the episode, and considering that Clay had been in Broadway's production of "Spamalot", thus he was considered apt for the role as well as the guest judge.

"It was interesting to be on the other side of the table and think of all these things that I went through in 2003," Clay told AP. "I think the girls kind of appreciated that, the fact that I had been in a similar position. I was going to be a judge, yes, but be a judge who understood a little bit about what they're going through."

On another dose of "ANTM" news, the execs have organized a new audition of the 13th season in New York City. The open casting call will be held on Saturday, April 11 but no location and specific time have been disclosed yet. The March audition in NYC created chaos that injured more than 5 people.
