Before you read this report, I would like to make sure that you know that I have not watched the Regis and Kelly show since November, 2006. Maybe I am stubborn, but I refuse to support people who are rude and consider themselves better than others.
However, Clay Aiken has been a guest many times on the show and his part of the show has always been interesting to see. For that reason, I am reporting about this following show.
On September 24, 2004, Clay Aiken won the “Relly” Award for the Best Musical Guest on The Kelly and Regis Show.
Eric McCormack of Will and Grace fame, presented the award saying “Oh my brother’s wife will be excited.”
Clay accepted his golden stool via satellite from a recording studio in North Carolina where he was finishing up his Christmas album. Clay held up his award which was represented by a giant chair.
The nominees for musical guest were:
What is a “Relly” and why is it around? It seems that year after year, the talk show, “Live with Regis and Kelly” had never been nominated for a daytime Emmy. The show decided to take things into their own hands.
Kelly Rippa said:
“Most of the great successes of our show have begun as a joke so we were kidding around that we should have our own awards show, with categories where only we are nominated against ourselves. That way, we couldn’t lose.”
Winners are chosen online by the “Live” audience. Each winner takes home the coveted Golden Stool which is the trophy-size version of the seating that accommodates “Live” co-hosts and guests.
So, it looks like the coveted “Relly” is a good representation of the show itself…….just one big joke.
The following video is short, but it is all Clay. I hope you enjoy seeing Clay receive his award.
