February 7, 2004 was a typical Saturday night. At 11:30pm, televisions all over the US switched to NBC to watch the popular show, Saturday Night Live. The guest host of the evening was Megan Mullally, but the star of the evening was Clay Aiken.
The preceding week, NBC teased their audience with lots of fun promos for the show and each one showed Clay just being his “funny” self. There was even one with a “pasty” that was a parody on the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Most Clay Aiken fans knew the night was going to be great as soon as we saw Clay jump on stage dressed in a white tux and belting out “She’s So Hot!”
Clay was actively involved throughout the show. One of the highlights was a skit about getting into the Grammy Awards. The ill-fitted suit, the curly wig, the exaggerated accent and especially the “Aiken Wink” made Trey Aiken and the skit a highlight of the entire season.
Besides acting, Clay sang “Invisible” and “The Way.” When the show was over, it was fun to see all the cast hugging each other and congratulating Clay for the great job that he did.
The following is a video of some of the promo before the show
Did you watch this show??
Uh, how many times DID I see this episode? Like LOTS! How much FUN was that night!!!??? Loved every second of it!!!
That was funny.
What a great show! The intro was spectacular and the skit made me laugh and swoon with that WINK, and as Amy said: That wink gets me every time!
Love watching all this episodes with Clay, he's one of a kind, just love him so much!
I watched it, recorded it and re-watched it. Clay did a fantastic job. Do recall seeing Megan guest on Clay's TV Christmas Special?
Loved that show – and the promos were hysterical. Thanks!
