From CB:

Zippy is there! And about half or all of the 4th row from the stage is empty...least I think that's what I heard, but I do apologize in advance if I get my info wrong.

Long sleeved sweat shirts are $50.....regular shirts are $35. William Joseph spent some time saying how he thanked Clay for asking him to join the tour. And said that he had heard about "us"

----

No annoucement yet about flash if there is going to be one.

----

she says it looks like it's getting more crowded though...people are filling in now

---

they are saying that the venue is getting fuller.....no announcement about flashes yet.....

---

It's starting!!!!!! They have Clay's pre-recorded intro...FLASH ANNOUNCEMENT

---

i hear scraming.....now clay's voice about camer policy...about enoying the show as a WHOLE

---

The "flash recording" does sound taped, but he did welcome everyone to Portland and to the theatre.

---

Children gather around.....christmas time is here

From CV:

I have this feeling that Clay sounds especially richer, fuller and more soulful in all his songs as compared with last year - perhaps that emotion comes with the fact that he's performing to a story-line.

His voice is so stunningly beautiful on every piece of JN05 songs.

From Cb:

Chestnut song continues.....to see if reindeer really know how to fly [singing very slowly]..Merry Christmas to you

Music ==must be dancing going on.

And so I'm offering this simple...........Merry Christmas to you

[Cheering. ]

Woman--there wasn't that easy. Tells little boy to go out and play and when he comes back the cookies will be ready.

Music--Angie I think--don't know this song--Away in a manger....

lots of appaulse

told the boy to go outside and play before it gets darn and she would clean up. by the time he gets back the cookies will be done

Angela singing now...she sounds beautiful...soothing, jazzy and bluesy like last night

----

The very soft orchestration on these slow songs is just PERFECT!!!! They are a subtle backround to his gorgeous vocals...never overpowering, and he never has to strain to sing over them. VERY WELL DONE.

---

Angie--not singing away in a manger (LOL) just some words from the song. ...The whole world is rejoicing....

(sound breaking up...sorry) ..I miss you more at Christmas time.

---

the world is rejoicing... (couldn't catch the rest)

except for you and I baby

I miss you most at christmas time

-----

I watched jojoct's SR earlier and the camera is on Clay the whole time. Is that the song that the actors are sitting on the steps be bopping to the music? I wanted to see that.

Also, let's hope and that Clay wants us to have this on DVD. It's totally his baby and it would be a shame not to be able to have a professioally produced DVD.

----

Angela singing now...she sounds beautiful...soothing, jazzy and bluesy like last night

---

The actors sound much better tonight....over the first night jitters, perhaps????

---

Ready for some growlage?!?!?!

"Celebrate Me Home"

---

I told my mom you liked christmas again

oooo

talking about what he's going to do for christmas and inviting her to go along to church and to his house

sounds like an offer I can't refuse

tommy I'm glad you came to visit with me today you've reminded me you can be with people you care about that don't have to be relatives and I'm glad that you are the one I get to spend with....

----

Angie finishing up

Cheering.

Telephone rings.

Hello.

Message--can't come to the phone right now.

Women and boy--

Woman--did you have a good time.

Boy--I told mom you like Christmas again and that's just great.

Says his mother says he can stay with her.

He's talking--he's inviting her to his church tomorrow.

He says he's the narrator in the Christma musical.

W"oman--that sounds like an offer I can't refuse. ....you reminded me how important it is to have friends....you can be with people you care about even if they're not your relatives and I'm glad I can be with you..

Clay singing---not sure what song this is. Celebrate me HOME!!!

(glorious voice!)

----

Audience acknowledge the growlage!!!!! Tee-Hee!

Intermission reports:

the actors, and CLay seem loser today and more fun...

John and the wife entered the scene earlier and with more interaction with Beverley...

seem more than 50% full but lots of empty seat all over.

another estimate is 2/3 full

I made the mistake of going over to the OFC... I wish they would just blow up that message board. There's just no way you're going to get 11,000 Clay Aiken fans to act civilized towards each other.

I'm seriously wanting some first row balcony seats now instead of what I do have. Upgrading in reverse!!
