Clay Aiken & Ruben Studdard Reunite ForChristmas Show & Fans Are Freaking OutOver How Good It Is
by Jason Brow
It’s time for an ‘American Idol’ Christmas! Former rivals Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken have reunited for a Christmas spectacular on Broadway and fans can’t believe how good it is!
Fifteen years ago, Ruben Studdard, 40, and Clay Aiken, 40, battled it out in the season two finale of American Idol. Forty million people turned in to see Ruben take the crown, and more than a decade later, these two rivals-turned-friends have teamed up to bring a little Christmas spirit to the Big Apple. Ruben & Clay’s First Annual Christmas Carol Family Fun Pageant Spectacular Reunion Show opened on Broadway’s Imperial Theatre on Dec. 11. This show might beat the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular as the hottest ticket in town this season, as fans were losing their minds over the show…
…Ruben is described as having a “no-presence presence [that] makes his singing all the more stunning: He has the precision and warmth of a top-shelf R&B crooner while looking as if his mind was elsewhere entirely. On Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” Mr. Studdard surfs over the notes like a sleigh effortlessly gliding over fresh snow. He is that good.”…
…Despite Ruben’s singing and how Clay is “a better actor,” the critical reception has been mixed. Greg Evans of our sister site, Deadline, says the show “pads the proceedings with intentionally cheesy sketch comedy, corny banter and, more successfully, thoughtful personal nostalgia.” However, he says that the show is its “most enjoyable when the songs are flowing” and praises the show’s family friendly price – tickets start at $39. Hey, the audience seems to like it and really, isn’t bringing joy and happiness to many is what Christmas is really all about?

Clay…what a wonderful show and all the press!
I hope you enjoy every moment!
I absoulty love Clay and Ruben and their voices. They are the reason I watch AI. My first time watching AI was the show when the winner was announced. I have watched every episode since. I live in a small town SW of Charlotte , NC. I went out and bought their signature CDs after the show. I bought Clays Christmas cd from 2004 and the song Merry Christmas With Love touches my heart so much. Tears come to my eyes every time I hear it. Just something special about it. Love that he has used his life to help others. Such an inspiration. Would love to see them but finances will not allow that. Thanks for all the videos you post. God Bless you all and Happy Birthday Jesus
