Well, I am goingto try and listen, but I don't know how long I will be without a tug of war or outside going on - my dog has been napping for the last 1.5 hours. Since she is a teen ager, it won't last much longer. So far, I am never allowed to sleep for more than 4 hours at a shot without outside trips.

Brandi is awfully cheery considering her trip through the snow. And so the show starts, as does the static.

It must be the uploads that I am running (project Runway anyone - I am in hour 13 of uploading the files so it may be interferring with my bandwidth for reception - the sound is going in and out for me, but it is better than last night. Sounds like a pretty big place. This is like day 3 in a row for Clay, one more before a break.

yeah you are right will this be 4 nights straight.

I did notice he was a bit strained last night. I dont; think the vocal chords is strained as much as he is getting tired. He still sounds great its just that he lacks proper support at times.

I am not knowledgable enough to talk about support, just being tired.

I really do find it hard to believe he has not been having help - I am with the people who find he sings through illnesses quite well, so someone must be helping him with that. We know he gets sick, he just does not show it.

I hear slaigh ride, soo my jingle bells will be - guess he is amusing someone there with that laughter - sounded like Brandi.

My favorites are the Jingle bell medley and the silver bells duet. This is nice, I just wish the guy would not over dance. I guess it is hard when everyone is watching you to not over perform

Yeah...I am truly convinced he is getting some coaching. I do hope he continues to take care of his voice. I notice he is very good at changing the way he sings when he is sick. I was in Toronto where he said he lost his voice...but although his energy level seem low the first part...his singing was still fantastic.

hee..playbiller do you mean the Kents?

have you seen it in person? I wonder if they are not as intense in person. I admit on the videos they are a bit much. I agree I wish they were directed to play to the emotion of the song...

Yeah, I was in the New York contingent. I decided it was too far a drive to Camden, since no one wanted to share the drive.

Adam Kent is too much. Patricia was flowery, but I think that was in character. It looked a lot better from the balcony than up close. I did not watch them too much when I was in the 7th row.

Beautiful...HYAMLC...this is one song I find he over sings at times...but he has good control tonight...so full of feelings tonight. Has a lot of nuance.

Christmas waltz...I am enjoying this cellstream tonight. His voice is coming in so clear...
