From CB:

Its so cute when Beverly and Tommy start dancing during The Christmas Waltz - and when the angel breaks the time barrier and has her dancing with her husband, I so love the mischevious look on his face. This is one of my favorite parts of the show!

---

Every time I hear The Christmas Song on this tour, I am loving it more and more. He's really made this song his own. Its so perfect the way he sings it, so soft and reflective - his voice caressing the notes in a dreamy way. It makes the vignette so nostalgic - and tugs on the heartstrings so sweetly.

Merry Merry Christmas to.............you.............

Absolute perfection.

----

Merry Christmas....all I hear now is Merry...Merry....

Missing so much of this...I hear the applause just fine but can't here Clay...a word here and there....then silence...not sure why the reception is so bad....

---

Cellstream reporter says Adam came in too early again tonight during the introductions - and Clay had to run to the other side of the stage. Then the rest of the dancers came out quickly, and he asked them how they thought he was supposed to make it over to the other side of the stage so fast.

When Quiana and Angela came out, they did some kind of twirl with a little hip thing - and Clay made them do it again, then made all the dancers do it with them. She said it was very funny.

---

Laughter during introductions....due to dancers, and Quianna did a funny hollywood smile and did something with her hip, Angela did the same thing and Clay made all of the dancers do it too....would make the crew do it but wanted to have all his lights and stuff work ok!

Going to ask meet and greet gal to ask Clay if he knows about the cellcert Sock Reports!!!
