Clay Aiken – A Spectacular Show

On April 30, 2008, Tyra Banks celebrated the 500th episode of her TV show.  Called the 500th Episode Spectacular, Tyra used the show to give back to New York, the city that welcomed her when her talk show moved there.

Tyra did many things on this special show.  She helped Mayor Bloomberg plant a tree for his “Million Tree NYC” and gave out free Metro cards and fashion advice to commuters in Union Square.  Tyra gave out Yankee tickets and received surprise messages from Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, Jimmy Kimmel and Debra Messing.  Mayor Bloomberg proclaimed April 30 as “The Tyra Banks Show” Day.

But, for Clay Aiken fans, the highlight of the show was the 16 year old girl who won the opportunity to meet Clay at the stage door of the Spamalot.  The teen was told that she was one of five finalists to see a wax figure of Clay. She was super surprised when she actually met Clay.  The only disappointment about the show was that the meeting with Clay was too short.

The following is a video of Clay’s part of this fun show.

Do you remember this show?

  1. I remember this show, One Lucky Girl! And the audience got tickets to see OMC in Spamalot
    Thank you, CANN for sharing this special memory!

  2. It was fun to watch that video again. I remember sitting in front of the TV waiting for Tyra's show to come on that day. I wonder if she and Clay are still good friends. I recall seeing that Clay celebrated Christmas with Tyra & her mom one year.

  3. Thank you for the pictures and the video. I do remember the show. It was nice to see it again. I do not believe how long it was.
