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.
Before the concert, Ryan chatted with both Kelly and Clay about their up-coming tour. The crowd inside the studio was filled with enthusiastic fans who enjoyed the fun conversation.
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 show before, the videos below are a great way to remember this exciting appearance.
