Clay Aiken – Remember the Tug?

Do you remember the infamous tug?  The first clack of the tug was wonderful to see, but it was even more fun to listen to the crowd and their reaction to Clay Aiken’s newest “move.”

As each concert went by, the tug got bolder and people said you could see the twinkle in Clay’s eyes as he just knew what he was doing to the crowd.

The tug is important enough to warrant its own poll.  Please vote for the tug you like the most.  Then, maybe you can share your first encounter with “The Tug.”

The first picture is horrible, but it is the “first” tug.  I could not find it with his face showing.  Sorry, but…….it is the first tug!!!

  1. yay! I loved the tug! I’m so glad you posted these…makes me really wish he would go on tour again! lol

  2. Awww, I remember it well … if only we could see it again soon (our soon not Clay’s).

    The first of many Clay moves (I’m discounting the Grease hip jerk LOL). My favourite move is the “party all night” with the towel.

    C’mon Clay, we are missing you sooooooooooo much!

  3. 🙁 I’ve never seen the tug in person (sob)

    but I LOVE watching it on video!!!

    I voted for my favorite (and I’m behind in the poll – but I do like the one that’s at #1 and #2 and #3 and #4 and #5 and #6 – guess I’m EASY that way!!!)

    Cannot wait to see Clay Aiken again live and in person – every tour different, but each one just as wonderful and memorable.

  4. Musicfan,

    I made the mistake of checking the results, so I couldn’t vote — which is a good thing since I like them all. There is nothing like a Clay Aiken tug!

    Thank you for your kind remarks in the Carolina blog. Hope all is well where you are. Have a wonderful weekend!


  5. I also never saw the tug in person… waaaah…

    but it sure was beautiful to see in those video’s!!

  6. I had to vote for #5 because I saw him on GMA that morning and knew that I would be seeing him LIVE that night at Mohegan Sun.

    I can’t remember ever being quite that excited. Had butterflies in my stomach all day long. And that JBT that I saw that night was the best thing I have ever seen in my whole life!!!

  7. “OMG, what is that move”?!?!
    Who could have guessed that such a little gesture would drive women crazy!!

    They’re all great, but I have a soft spot for the first one. I’ve never seen it live…if I had they would have had to scrape me off the floor, but it gets me everytime (so has every tug since!!)

  8. Only Clay can work a tug. I don’t know why but #3 tugs at my heart. Are they all on video? Is there a Clay Tugs video? *faint*

  9. When clay starts that look with that wonderful TUG I go right down to the floor everytime!!! anniemae loves you clay

    • Thanks for posting the video. I vividly remember watching the first video that came out of this performance and having to tilt my head because the video was playing sideways! Good times!
