Clay Aiken – “They Will Be Locked!”

Do you remember “They Will Be Locked”? Clay Aiken shouted out this phrase when he was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live in September of 2006.

As always, Clay and Jimmy seemed to enjoy chatting with each other. Jimmy introduced Clay as his best friend and Clay presented Jimmy with his Relly award that he took from Jimmy’s office.

Jimmy had collected some items from Clay’s Fan Club store. Jimmy held up 2 different boxer shorts, a thong, a signed pashmina and a paper fan that featured Clay’s face!!

Clay related a story about a presidential motorcade that stopped traffic and made Clay wait for about 25 minutes. He told about the limo driver that was not too patient when Clay was concerned about the door of the limo being locked….so “THEY WILL BE LOCKED!!”

Two young ladies who were a part of the audience were shown having Clay’s signature tattooed on their backs. They came up to the stage to show Clay. However, Clay could not be out-done. He rolled up his pant-leg and showed off his “tattoo” of Jimmy. He even complained that he had to shave his leg for Jimmy.

After the chat, Clay moved to the Pontiac Stage and gave a short concert for the audience. The television audience heard A Thousand Days and a few lines of Invisible. The live audience heard Without You, When I See You Smile and Sorry Seems To Be the Hardest Word.

I love these fun video of Clay and Jimmy  together!

The second video has Japanese sub-titles

 Clay and  Jimmy…two men who really entertain the audience when they chat together…its great TV!!

  1. As we all know, OMC loves to talk, and that night with Jimmy Kimmel was no exception. Clay feels at home in front of an audience, he can be himself! Even George Lopez was laughing his head off at Clay's hilarious interview with Jimmy! Great show! I watched this video so many times and never am tired of it!

  2. One of my all-time favorite Clay videos. His natural ability to come out with spontaneous, funny
    responses is one of his greatest gifts along with his magical voice and acting ability. How I long for those days!

    Hopefully, he will come back to the stage, but I believe politics has taken his interest these days. My thanks to all who contributed to this video. It makes my laugh every time I watch it.
    It is truly a treasure.

  3. Being on the west coast does have it's advantages when it came to tv appearances. I was there for the CD signing and Jimmy Kimmel. Fun day that started at 5 in the morning. I kept thinking on the drive down. "I think I might be a little bit crazy". One of my favorite memories. Glad I still am a little bit crazy, uhh, I mean "Enthusiastic"

  4. Not much beats Clay on Jimmy’s show. They were always so funny together. Great videos. I have watched them many times and always wonder if they are still friends. Thanks for the post. ❤️ UNCONDITIONAL love for you Clay. God bless America.
