Clay Aiken and Taylor Hicks show up as judges on a talent competition on Wednesday's (Nov. 6) "Law & Order: Svu." The fake "American Diva" bears an uncanny resemblance to "American Idol," where the two singers got their big breaks.

The episode has them (along with R&B singer Ashanti) behind the judges' desk. Carly Rose Sonenclar, runner-up on Season 2 of "The X Factor," takes the stage. She's so nervous, she's initially inaudible, but quickly finds her terrific voice.

As she's wowing the audience, which was a theater full of extras at Manhattan's Hudson Theatre last month, the action breaks to the detectives going about their lives, all tuning into the singing contest. Detective Amaro (Danny Pino) and his daughter watch at a diner. Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Tutuola (Ice-t) watch while eating take-out Chinese food, and Benson (Mariska Hargitay) has the show on at home, while on the phone.

It's a sweet, »
