Clay Aiken – Not A Fan of Tupperware

December, 2004, had to be one of the most hectic months in Clay Aiken’s life.  He was on tour, he had his own special on TV and he made the rounds of the talk shows to chat and sing.

On December 6, 2004, Clay made an appearance on The Tonight Show.  He had a great talk with Jay Leno and sang a wonderful rendition of “Mary, Did You Know.”

Jay asked Clay about his Thanksgiving holiday.  Clay told him that there were over 30 people who celebrated at his home.  This was the interview when we learned about Clay’s relationship with Tupperware and about the importance of glass milk bottles.  Remember??  Six bottles, all lined up perfectly!! Clay was clever, well spoken, interesting and very funny.

Clay brought along a video of his throat and showed us his vocal cords…..well, it was different.

Clay was introduced after Kevin Spacey, and instead of starting off by talking to Jay, he began by singing.   Clay’s voice showed beauty and power and his love of the lyrics was obvious.  It was evident that Clay had completely recovered from the illness he had suffered recently.  There was obviously no vocal chord damage from his infection.

As always, Clay was dressed in his own style.  His brown plaid pants and blue blazer stood out from the others.  All and all, it was a wonderful visit as Clay was able to show his intense and stirring side as he sang and then his humorous, light banter and a set of slightly bruised vocal chords up there on the screen for all to see!

I think the video of “Mary, Did You Know?” shows one of the best performances I have seen or heard.  I hope you enjoy it.





Just a quick reminder……..Don’t forget to leave your Carol suggestions on the December 5th article.

  1. Oh, thanks for posting this one. This was I think one of the first interview w/ Clay I saw on YouTube…but definitely the one that made me pursue finding out more about this wonderfully witty and cute guy. xxx

  2. I have always loved Christmas music. There is just something very special about it. I have many, many Christmas songs on my iPod that I play each year, but Clay Aiken's music and voice just stand out from the rest. Thank you for the videos. Mary Did You Know is a beautiful song and a favorite of mine during the holidays.

  3. My dad would have agreed with Clay. He worked in retail(McClellan's, Grants, Big K-Kuhns, and Wal-mart) several years. He said that the tupperware, home interior and similar parties didn't have to pay the same local and state taxes that retail stores did.
    It's always great to see Clay!
