It was Monday, February 15, 2004 and the crowd was growing at the corner of Hollywood and Highland in Hollywood, California. The shopping complex was filled to the brim and the usual traffic flow was at a stand-still. All of this excitement was because two young singers were about to take the stage and show off their wonderful singing talent and amazing entertaining skills.
Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson joined Ryan Seacrest on his short-lived show, On Air. It was a week before the two performers started out on their Independent Tour. The concert was short, but the huge crowd was lucky to be able to watch the entire sound-check before the concert started.
Clay performed his hit, The Way and the crowd showed their support with lots of applause, cheering and many creative, printed signs.
Even if you have seen this performance before, the video below is a great way to remember this exciting performance.
THANK YOU!! that is one of my FAVORITE performances of The Way!! he sounded and looked so WONDERFUL!!!! I cannot believe that was five years ago – time flies when you’re having fun!! *g*
Time sure does fly when your having fun!
I hadn’t seen this, in like, forever. Thanks so much. When Clay tours again, (soon, I hope) I hope to hear some of the Measure of the Man songs again along with his newer stuff. I’m thinking the concert needs to be at least 4 hours long, what do you think?
Thanks for that video..one of my favorite performances of Clay. I still remember when we knew Clay and Kelly were going to be on the show, there was so much excitement and we couldn't wait for it to come on. Clay looked so gorgeous singing The Way. Those girls sure thought so too…a lot of screaming going on.
WOW he looked great that day! I loved hearing him sing The Way…one of my favorite songs off of MOAM! C’mon Clay….tour!!!!!!!!!
I loved that performance!
This was just great reliving those earlier happy times!! What an adventure we were beginning with Clay and the time has just flown by. Can’t wait for the next tour ~~ hopefully, THIS YEAR!!!!
Thanks for this, he was great that day. What memories. I love the Superstar video too, that man has soul!
Wow, I just love this video! I don’t think I’ve seen it before, but as usual Clay knocks it out of the ballpark with his tremendous, glorious voice. Thanks for putting this up!
Thank you for the E-mail.
I’m a Japanese woman and a biggest fan of Clay.
I love this video. Clay is very gorgeous!
I love “The Way” and I’m glad Clay and Kelly got to tour together and become great friends.
