Clay Aiken can almost always count on Good Morning America to support his career. This is one show that Clay has visited many times, both as a musical guest and an interesting celebrity.
On May 7, 2008, Clay visited GMA one more time. Clay sang On My Way Here and Ashes and also a “bump”…..a short portion of Invisible to get the crowd going.
Clay Aiken fans lined up early to make it into the studio to see the taping in person. In the wee hours of the morning, the crowd spotted the band arriving along with Mary, Quiana and Angela. Clay arrived in a green hoodie and, according to the fans in attendance, he looked very sleepy.
There were 50 fifth graders in the studio for the taping. They were all well-behaved and many asked for Clay autograph. In typical “teacher mode,” Clay had them line up and reminding them to go one at a time.
The show was exciting, but too short. Maybe Clay will visit GMA again and he will have a bit more time.
It’s hard to imagine how tired Clay must have been. Within the last 4 days of this visit, Clay performed his final show in Spamalot, had a CD signing at the Virgin Megastore and performed on TV. No wonder he arrived at the studio with a yawn.
The following videos are fan recordings of the GMA appearance. You can see and here “On My Way Here” and “Ashes.”
