Clay Aiken – Life Is Not Good For Kenny!

The date:  February 15, 2005
The place:  Sacred Heart Hospital
The event: NBC Sit-com

Yes…That was the night that Clay Aiken starred as Kenny, the cafeteria worker, who liked to pick hair out of the meatloaf.  But life is not good for Kenny. There are rumors of job lay offs at Sacred Heart Hospital and Kenny is afraid he will lose his job because he is one of the last hired at the hospital.

Originally broadcast on February 15, 2005, this particular episode received a great deal of publicity.  The very popular Clay Aiken was a guest on the show and the director was using a new concept for filming the show.  The director chose to use multiple cameras instead of the usual one camera for this episode.  It was also the only time the show filmed in front of a live audience.

 Clay played the role of a nerdy cafeteria worker named Kenny. Although Kenny is a hard worker, he is about to lose his job because of budget troubles and cutbacks. However, before he leaves he wins the hospital talent contest. Clay performed the Stevie Wonder hit, Isn’t She Lovely on the talent show.

The publicity came from all different sources.   The following are a few of the articles that were written about the show.

USA Today
Aiken dons ‘Scrubs’
Americal Idol runner-up Clay Aiken will guest on a part-live audience taping of NBC comedy SCRUBS, usually a single-camera, closed-set show. The episode (Feb 15, 9pm ET) will poke fun at traditional sitcoms by portraying them as an unrealistic fantasy world with a laugh track.
Entertainment Weekly

Small-Screen ‘Idol’
Clay Aiken will guest-star on ”Scrubs.” ”American Idol” runner-up to appear on episode that makes fun of sitcoms by Michael Slezak. 
Apparently, Will & Grace isn’t the only NBC sitcom relying on singing sensations to boost its ratings. American Idol’s Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken will play a cafeteria worker named Kenny in the Feb. 15 episode of Scrubs, which is titled ”My Life in Four Cameras,” and will reportedly ridicule such standard sitcom conventions as the laugh track, an NBC spokesperson confirmed.While Scrubs is typically filmed on a closed set, Aiken’s episode will be taped in part before a live audience. No word on whether the carrot-topped crooner will break into song during his Scrubs stint.

As an “American Idol” alum, Clay Aiken knows what it’s like to perform with a lot at stake, and next week fans will see him sing like his job’s on the line – his job as a cafeteria worker.
Aiken stars as Kenny, a cafeteria employee who likes to pick hair out of the meatloaf. Like many episodes of “Scrubs,” “My Life in Four Cameras” centers on daydreaming doctor J.D., played by Zach Braff, and this one features the “longest fantasy sequence of all time,” taking over the entire second act, according to co-star Sarah Chalke (who plays Elliott).

It starts when J.D. has to give a sitcom writer the bad news that he only has a few weeks to live, and then he wonders how the lives of everyone at Sacred Heart Hospital would turn out if left in the hands of the writer.

J.D. says to himself, “Sometimes, I think we all wish life was like a sitcom,” and then suddenly, life is a sitcom, as the show transforms into a mockup of traditional sitcoms, down to its own structure. Where “Scrubs” is normally shot with only one camera and no studio audience, there are now four cameras and a live audience. Their responses surprise J.D. at first, making him wonder just where the laughter is coming from.

“In the sitcom, it’s a joke that there’s always a big guest star, and they walk out and the audience goes, ‘Woo!’ ” Braff said. “And we needed to have that, and Clay was nice enough to be our ‘woo!’ ”

“I guess I have a little experience with live audiences,” Aiken said, “so they said, ‘Why not come out and give it a shot?’ ”

Kenny’s cafeteria job is on the line, but his natural singing ability comes in handy since a hospital talent show is just around the corner — a device that would only work in sitcom world. “They have to fire someone in the cafeteria,” Aiken said, “and my character is the one with the least seniority, so it looks like I’m about to be fired. But through the magic of television and sitcoms, my job is saved.”

“He is so unbelievably talented,” Chalke said. “He has this insanely sick voice. And he was so cool, he came and sang for the audience at the end.”

It wasn’t easy for the cast members to adjust — learning to hold for laughs, for one thing — but they liked the energy of doing the show live for a change.

“When you have the safety of being in an insular, creepy, invented hospital in the Valley,” Chalke said, “the crew becomes our live audience when we’re rehearsing. So if they don’t laugh, we just go to the writers and come up with something else.”

“But the crew is a little over our jokes after four years,” Braff said. “And the audience laughing at our jokes makes us think for a second that we’re actually funny.

Did you see this episode back in 2005?  If so, you were not alone as it was one of the highest rated episodes that season.

Whether you saw it before, or if you missed it, you can see it here.

Just click on the YouTube and be ready to laugh out loud.

Clay Aiken – Talking, Joking, And Singing A Beautiful Song

 

I have known from 2003 that Clay Aiken is a very talented man.  He can sing like no one else…he has a sense of humor that is so full of fun…and, with his quick wit, he can respond to almost anything given to him!

But….even after all these years, I still am amazed that he can be joking around and a second later be performing a song with passion and beauty!

 How does he do it?

The following fun video shows how Clay can combine a conversation, a joke, and a beautiful song…all in the same song.

Thank you to hosaa for this fun, beautiful, and charming look at Clay, on stage, talking, joking, and singing the beautiful song, Misty!

 

Now…wasn’t that fun?

Clay Aiken – Just Laugh It Off

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 boyfriend 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!

By the way…Jimmy celebrated his 50th birthday last night!!

Do you remember this night?
