It is Friday, December 11th – In two weeks, we will be celebrating Christmas!!
Tonight, Clay Aiken will be on TV. Clay will be participating in The 84th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade. Did you know that it is the largest Christmas celebration in America? The parade and pre-concert took place on November 29th and there were thousands of people there to watch the event.
The program will air on the CW Network at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST with Grand Marshals Penn & Teller. It will be fun to see Clay singing on TV again.
The website – The Daily Campus at UCONN posted an article about the best and worst of American Idol.
Roundtable- American Idol Memories
Edward Pankowski, Life editor wrote the following:
“American Idol” has always been something of a staple of American television, but I always thought of the whole process as being influenced by producers, though not exactly rigged. That’s why I liked Clay Aiken’s performance several years ago, because it was one of the most unconventional performances I’ve ever seen.
Everyone goes for the pop songs and the rock and roll when they compete, but Aiken comes out with a choir and starts singing gospel music. The whole audience is swaying and clapping hands with the choir and it felt like I was in a beautiful, musical church. That’s my favorite memory from “American Idol,” and if the new season can capture anything like it then “American Idol” will go out on a high note.
There are only three things they rate as Best and Worst. It is nice to see Clay mentioned as the best!! You can see the entire article at: UCONN
Thursday afternoon, Clay tweeted the following:
Proud of my friend @KenArpino and his, The Queens Project | Indiegogo https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-queens-project#/ …
Ken Arpino and Clay are friends. They worked together in Ogunquit, Maine in the musical Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Ken was a big supporter of Clay’s campaign for Congress. He attended a few fundraising events in New York. It is always nice to see friends supporting each other on their projects.
Have a great Friday, and enjoy the parade tonight!
I would love to hear what you think of the parade!
