Clay Aiken – The Audience Loved It

What did you think I would do at this moment
When you’re standing before me
With tears in your eyes
Trying to tell me that you have found you another
And you just don’t love me no more…

~~~~

Do you recognize these lyrics?

Clay Aiken sang this song on the Top 8 episode of American Idol, Season 2.

Yes…it is At This Moment!

According to Song Facts, At This Moment was written by Billy Vera in 1977. But, no one wanted to record it. Billy Vera and The Beaters finally released it in 1981.  It charted at #79.

The song was revived when it was used in three episodes of the hit TV show Family Ties in 1985 and 1986, as a backdrop for romantic interludes between Alex P. Keaton and Ellen Reed.

Clay sang At This Moment on his season of American Idol and although the audience loved it, it got mixed reviews from the judges.

Looking back, I love the way Clay sang it! (Wait…I like everything Clay sings!)

I hope you enjoy this video.  I haven’t watched it for a long time!

 

Do you like that song?

Clay Aiken Took Care Of It!

On Monday, Ruben & Clay’s Christmas Show posted a short but fun video about the Broadway Christmas Show.

I think you will shake your head and smile too as Clay and Ruben try to tell a few jokes!!!

 

On November 13, 2003, Clay Aiken was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel – Live.  Prior to this appearance, Jimmy had used Clay as the butt of many jokes.  When the two finally sat down to chat, Jimmy tried to explain away reasons for making fun of Clay.  He also was surprised that Clay was tall (6’1″).

Britney Spears was the guest before Clay on the program.  As she was talking to Jimmy, she commented that she liked Ruben better than Clay!!  Not so nice to say that in front of Clay!!  However, Clay took care of it.  While talking to Jimmy about being made fun of, Clay said he just laughs it off…just like he laughed at the comment made by Britney.

Clay was involved in a short skit to tease Jimmy. Sarah Silverman, who was Jimmy’s girlfriend and Clay pretended that they were kissing and having fun.  It was a cute skit.

It happened to be Jimmy’s birthday and Clay asked him if he was 40!!  Then Jimmy went through a list of things that he and Clay had in common.  With a smile, Clay said he needed a new fact checker.

It was a great show and Clay seemed to have a good time.

I wish I could find a video of this show.  Unfortunately, Disney/ABC removed the videos from YouTube many years ago!

We do have an excellent video of short, but fun clips of Clay on many different Kimmel shows!!

 

Do you remember this night?

Clay Aiken – On Broadway!

Sponsored by BroadwayCares/Equity Fights Aids, the 22nd Annual Easter Bonnet Competition was held on Tuesday, April 29, 2009 at the Minskoff Theatre.  The performance was the culmination of a 6 week fundraiser that pitted the different stage productions against each other to raise money for the charity.

Spamalot had only participated for 2 weeks, but the cast and crew worked hard by posing for pictures, giving backstage tours and auctioning off bits of costumes and stage props.  Clay Aiken spent hours leading the way and encouraging his fans to help out.

Many of the participating shows participated in the April 29th event by presenting an ornate “Easter Bonnet”, accompanied by a short skit.  Clay Aiken and Hannah Waddingham sang a serious and beautiful rendition of “The Prayer.”  But, because it was Spamalot, there had to be a twist.  Just as the audience was enjoying the beautiful song, the nun from Spamalot made an appearance…..on roller skates.  How did Clay and Hannah keep a straight face as they continued to sing?

At the end of the show, it was announced that the Broadway musical “Rent” won the top prize in the competition by raising a record $277,740.  “Spamalot” was the runner-up with a total of $264,900 raised. The grand total for the fundraiser was $3,734,129.  This total proved that all of the Broadway community were winners that day.

The following is a video of the performance of the Spamalot cast, featuring Clay and Hannah singing The Prayer.

 

Did you know???

David Foster composed this beautiful song in 1999 and won TheGolden Globe for Best Original Song in a movie!
