Per CV:

He didn't go home and came to Louisville directly from Chicago.

Took everyone to the movies and had the whole front section roped off for him. Hooped and hollered for Patricia when she was on the screen.

Some went bowling with him. He spent Thanksgiving with his former teacher. Local fans spoke to the teacher and got info directly from her.

From CH:

Cellcert intermission report:

Still using the black square box. Two people brought round boxes to give to Clay so we'll see if they're in use next time.

sunnydays thinks he's wearing boxer briefs.

CMH - still the same staging with the backups whispering in Clay's ear.

Socks have a grey? stripe.

StubHub M & G is on now....not at the last intermission.

Angela got a partial standing ovation during her song.

Baby growl during CMH.

Jerome took out somebody from the pit during the show. They don't know why........

Venue 85-90% full in their estimation. 10 rows in the back of the balcony (about 100 seats) are empty. Not great seats.

Crowd more responsive than in KC according to Whatever.

Lots of applause during the songs.

Whatever thinks the harmonies have improved since KC and that they've worked on them.

---

whatever was in KC and is there tonight and she reports that they seemed to have worked out the harmonies better than the first night without Jacob.

Someone is speechless.

Quiana and Angela are wearing their hair down - Angela's is in corn row braids, but Quiana's is all curls.

Socks - she thinks one vertical stripe.

CMH is definitely still the different version.

hear some yelling out we love you clay.skit continues.....now into... quianna song...what another wonder god created when he created her..

---

O Holy Night through Mary Did You know - what an amazing set of songs, and what a treat to hear him sing them again and again. Spine tingling!

They're doing the last skit. This is the part that had me in tears in Chicago. When Clay turns Beverly so she's looking at Tommy and encourages her to go show him some love and support - and then when Beverly puts her precious Christmas ornament in Tommy's backpack all while Quiana is singing her beautiful song and Clay is looking on - its just a killer.

Loved the cellcert from this concert. Clay was in great voice, the CH cellcerter was enthusuastic and the crowd was fantastic. I wish every concert could be this good.

I am, maybe needlessly, concerned about how he is really going full out with his voice. The concerts I am attending are just before Christmas and selfishly I want his voice to be just as great as it is now. Meanwhile I am very happy to be able to hear him almost on a daily basis. :D

I was concerned about it ever since Jacob left because I thought Clay was oversinging and seemed tired. But after tonight I think he is back on track on using proper technique and seem really relaxed in his singing. I alos think they fixed their sound mix and harmonies cos the girls didn't sound shrill or overpowering tonight. I think the only real fear here is if he gets sick. But remember he got sick during JBT...he suppose to have lost his voice in Canada...but he was still vocally great...not perfect but he did a great job. He was just a bit less energetic but he made up for it in snark. I do believe JBT would be more of a strain for his voice since he was doing so many different sounds that calls for more tensing of his muscles...plus he sang some of his most difficult songs...solitaire and BOTW. In JNT2005 the second half may be full of show stoppers but these songs when sung with the right technique shouldn't hurt his chords.
