Clay Aiken – A Busy Day!

It’s Thanksgiving Week!

Are you ready to party?

Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard will be very busy today.  They have two very exciting events to attend.

  1. The Imperial Theatre Box Office (249 West 45th Street) will open Monday, November 19th at 1pm for Ruben & Clay’s Christmas Show celebration and ticket sales.  Besides Clay and Ruben, there will be posters, Holiday ornaments, and even a chance to get free tickets to the show!
  2. Clay and Ruben will be at  The Shops at Columbus Circle for its third year of Broadway Under the Stars.  It is a free public concert.  The music begins at 5:00pm.  No tickets or reservations are required to attend the concert!

I hope some of you will have the chance to attend these great appearances.

The American Music Awards, known as the AMAs, are given to top performers throughout the music industry on an annual basis. Awards are given in the Pop/Rock, Country, Rap/Hip-Hop, Soul/R&B, Alternative, Adult Contemporary, Latin, Soundtracks and Contemporary Inspirational genres of music. In addition to the awards in each of the genres, an Artist of the Year is named from all groups combined.

The AMAs are voted on by a poll of music buyers and the public. The American Music Awards have nominations based on sales, airplay, activity on social networks, and video viewing.

Dick Clark started the American Music Awards in 1973. Michael Jackson co-hosted the first event with Donny Osmond. Roberta Flack won the first award given in 1973

Clay Aiken has attended and participated in the AMA’s three times. On November 16, 2003, Clay played a large role in the show. He arrived on the Red Carpet with his friend Amber Nix and was nominated for two awards, Favorite Male Artist and Fan Choice. Clay won the Fan Choice Award. Clay also performed on the program. Clay sang a short version of Invisible and was then joined by Ruben Studdard for an outstanding rendition of Jesus Is Love. They received a standing ovation.

On November 11, 2004. Clay was a presenter on the program. He was joined on stage by Kathy Griffin who was dressed as a bride. She announced to the audience that she was going to marry Clay. Despite the distraction, Clay was able to present the award for the Best Male Country Artist.

Clay hit the Red Carpet one more time at the AMA’s. In 2006, Clay participated in a skit with Tori Spelling. The two made fun of Clay’s tiff with Kelly Ripa and received lots of laughs and applause.

I have to admit that the only times I have watched the show are the three times that Clay Aiken was a part of the show. I am not a huge fan of popular music and so the shows are just not my cup of tea!

The following video is fun. Clay was amazing when he sang at the AMA’s.

Have a great Monday!!
